Ilan Preskovsky quote iconThis isn't the film that Dark Tower fans have been waiting decades for and, based on the paltry marketing the film has received, one can only assume that everyone involved in making it feel the same.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconIt’s not the train wreck that some industry insiders predicted (based on reported turmoil with rough cuts and such), but there’s nothing special, interesting or engaging with anything that’s present.
