THE DARK TOWER (M) Looms large, lingers lit­tle, US, 95 min

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - WATCH -

Fol­low­ing the plot of this shapeshift­ing, mul­ti­world fan­tasy (based on the eight-book series by Stephen King) is a dif­fi­cult prospect in­deed. Best fo­cus in­stead on the two most prom­i­nent play­ers here. Idris Elba is Roland (aka The Gun­slinger), the pis­tol-wield­ing guardian of a tower that keeps an ever-im­mi­nent plague of demons at bay. Matthew McConaughey is Wal­ter (aka The Man in Black), a slick sor­cerer do­ing what­ever it takes to has­ten a de­mon­driven apoc­a­lypse.
