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.
During the first act of the film, several Stephen King Easter eggs are visible.

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 hear the ominous whistle.
