there is something to be said for young actor Tom Taylor who plays Jake Chambers in the 2017 adaptation of The Dark Tower. You have to ask yourself how this newbie is able to out-act every cast member. Taylor puts a solid effort into the role about a boy plagued by dreams of a Man in Black and his dark agenda that involves the torturing of children. Soon he is to learn that these occurrences are real and are happening in another parallel place known as Mid World.
With the slew of Sci Fi hits and misses of late, including Valerian, Alien: Covenant, Guardians Vol 2 & War of the Planet of the Apes, Stephen King's magnum opus, The Dark Tower, is a decent film with good action. Tom Taylor surprises with his solid effort (not many could carry a film's plot by themselves) and favourite Idris Elba brings the stunning Gunslinger's skills to life.
