PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
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.
Was originally to be adapted to film by J.J. Abrams following his success with the Lost (2004) television series. After Abrams backed out, Ron Howard became attached to the project until the rights went to Nikolaj Arcel.
I'm sworn to defend the Tower. I'll stop at nothing to defend it.
Understanding that this is a fantasy story and that Roland's pistols are somewhat magic there is a bit of a glitch here. The pistols are based on the Remington 1858 army model and, as such, should be single action pistols meaning that the person firing them would have to cock the hammer manually each time they're fired. Roland operates these pistols as double action pistols (never manually cocks the hammer) throughout the movie firing them one handed.
Right at the very end of the credits, you here the ominous whistle.
