The Dark Tower movie quotes provide the spoken lines for the film about a gunslinger and boy who fight to keep the universe together and safe from the Man in Black. The science fiction fantasy western was directed by Nikolaj Arcel using a screenplay he co-wrote with Akiva Goldsman, Jeff Pinkner and Anders Thomas Jensen. As a canonical sequel to the book series by Stephen King, The Dark Tower opened in theaters in the United States on August 4, 2017.
In The Dark Tower, Jake (Tom Taylor) is sent to a psychiatric facility after seeing visions. While the doctors write these visions off as dreams, Jake knows they are real and seeks out a building from his visions. In that building, Jake travels through a portal and ends up in Mid-World where he meets a man from his visions, the gunslinger Roland (Idris Elba).
Roland explains to Jake a bit about his world and their situation, all of which appeared in Jake's visions. There is a dark tower that protects both worlds that is under threat from the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey). Roland feels like those who protect the tower are all gone and that they're powerless against the Man in Black, but Jake must force him to fight if they want the billions on earth to survive. An epic battle between good and evil follows.
Roland Deschain: I will kill him, for both of us.
Roland Deschain: I do not aim with my hand. He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I aim with my eye. I do not shoot with my hand. I shoot with my mind. I do not kill with my gun. I kill with my heart.
Roland explains a bit about his mantra as a gunslinger in these The Dark Tower movie quotes. It's not about the act of pulling the trigger, it's about his mind, body and soul.
Roland Deschain: For centuries the gunslingers were knights sworn to protect us from the coming of the dark. Now I'm the only one left.
Roland explains the role of gunslingers, or at least the former role of gunslingers, in this The Dark Tower movie quote. At one time they protected against evil but now those protectors are all gone, except him.
Dr. Hotchkiss: These visions as you call them, what do you see?
Jake Chambers: I see a tower, the Man in Black and the gunslinger.
Dr. Hotchkiss: They’re just dreams. They’re not real, Jake.
Jake Chambers: There’s another world out there. I know there is.
Jake talks to a doctor at a psychiatric facility about the visions he sees. While the doctor writes them off as dreams, Jake feels strongly that they are real.
Jake Chambers: Why does the Man in Black want to destroy the tower?
Roland Deschain: The tower protects both our worlds. If it falls, hell will be unleashed.
Roland explains to Jake what the Man in Black is after and why he wants to destroy the tower in these The Dark Tower movie quotes. As Roland says, the tower keeps hell from overtaking both worlds, Jake's and Roland's.
