Consensus: “The Dark Tower” comes To is as a movie that assumes you have read all the books. As a person who has not read them I can say I was pretty lost at sea when it came to the story. I think that is a fatal mistake that the filmmakers will regret. I loved the look of the film, the performances and the visual effects. I just could not connect with the story as there seemed to be a lot of the history left as a mystery.
