The Dark Tower

We went out for breakfast this morning to Delicio in Eltham and Sam came up with the fantastic idea of going to the cinema as we hadn't been for a while. We decided to go and see The Dark Tower which is based on Stephen King's novels of the same name.

It wasn't a bad film at all. We hadn't read the books so had no preconceived ideas. The ending seemed a little bit rushed but overall it was a good story with some great concepts.

The plot was simple:
The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O'Dim, also known as the Man in Black, determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together. With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.

Not sure if you should see it if you've read the books but I'd certainly recommend it if you haven't. It's even been done in such a way that they could move into sequel territory should they so desire.  

After the film we went to Bella Italia for a nice meal.
