In a world where families are limited to one child due to overpopulation, a set of identical septuplets must avoid being put to a long sleep by the government and dangerous infighting while investigating the disappearance of one of their own.
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.
In order to expand the storyline and its universe of paranoia, cunning, betrayal and reversal of unexpected situations, the authors were inspired by the great classics of espionage, such as The Third Man of Carol Reed or Three Days of the Condor, thriller of Sydney Pollack centered on a plot, but also of more contemporary genre works, like the saga Jason Bourne.
In addition to the FBI, a CIA adviser and a former member of the US Navy Commando, Navy SEAL, have been very supportive of the most technical aspects of the scenario and have enabled Peter O'Brien to master the jargon necessary to ensure the authenticity of the film. See more »

The all star cast couldn't save this OK cliché'd film
Great cast, great acting, decent directing and editing but the writing was all over the place. Even the all star cast couldn't save this OK cliché'd film, and full of clichés it was. Had the story been a little tighter with less (and unnecessary) surprise (barely) plot twists (predictable), I would have enjoyed it more. Would I watch it again? Nope. It's a 7/10 from me.
