After much shuffling, "The Dark Tower" has finally arrived via director Nikolaj Arcel, who penned the 2009 Swedish adaptation of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and helmed the 18th-century Danish period drama "A Royal Affair".It's like someone trying to explain the HBO series "Westworld" in 30 seconds or less.After a brief hint of what's to come, the movie opens in modern New York City with a young teenager, Jake Chambers (newcomer Tom Taylor). His dreams are plagued by visions of an alternate world – Mid-World, as it's called – where he sees a gunslinger named Roland Deschain (Idris Elba) battling the Man in Black (McConaughey), who, for reasons unknown, is hell-bent on ending the universe.Actors like Elba and McConaughey are too good.Reaching half-heartedly for the epic only makes "The Dark Tower" appear all the smaller, especially as it jumps back and forth between alternate worlds. "The Dark Tower" is screening in Beirut-area cinemas.
