“The Dark Tower” is based on Stephen King’s acclaimed set of eight books in a series, stewing adventure, fantasy, and western genres in a pot. What seems to have worked on the page does not translate into a 90-minute film, where director Nicolaj Arcel attempts to stuff so many plots and backstories that he cannot provide adequate attention to any action scenes. The film may make audiences hesitant to even read the books.Without as much action and adventure as anticipated, Arcel’s formula would need the magnetism from its main stars, Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. Instead, under the aloof direction, the two mix like oil and water, never letting their scenes really take off. Individually, they provide moments assuring their star power. But the talent is squandered by a clunky script that demonstrates little to no ear for human relationships. “The Dark Tower” is a rushed film for what King must have hoped for his work. Save for some nice choices in cinematography, the film is difficult to enjoy. Despite themes of good prevailing over evil, and finding father figures in other people, the subjects of hell and revelation, which the film deals in frequently, will keep “The Dark Tower” from being a truly appreciable Dove film.
