We new it would be hollywood garbage from the first 5 seconds of the first trailer.

I saw it so you don't have to

but you need to understand, the only thing they took from the books were

1. There's a guy named roland, who shoots guns
2. There's this guy in black who's a baddie
3. There's this kid named jake
4. There's this tower somewhere

and then they rewrote all of it

Sounds about right.

A waste of Idris Elba.
