Pointless

As a "disaster movie" fan, I was looking forward to seeing this. However having now wasted nearly two hours of my life, I can't see the reason for having made it at all. It re-hashes everything from previous films of its type, without adding anything at all. It makes 2012 seem like a classic! To say the acting is wooden does a disservice to trees! The script, and the whole premise of the film is corny in the extreme. Even the CGI effects are overdone.
"Disaster movie" it is, but not in the way intended!

Good 'ol American Boy Says the World
Verified purchase
This has 16% on Rotten Tomatoes so forearmed is forewarned. In the real world, America and China have systematically caused most of the worlds pollution, created a consumer world in which plastic is king, and have been the cause of more misery, death and war than Genghis Khan. Luckily! America has the movie industry, so they can happily ignore all that and try to put forward a different type of climate agenda. That statement might seem a little strong, and if climate change wasn't such a serious issue for people, then I could take this film with a little more than the small pinch of salt it deserves. Warning, here is a spoiler which was shocking! The bad guy is British (wow, I actually never ever saw that coming either! ). God Bless America, saving the world for all of us, which each and every WMD they still can't find and every gas guzzling 4x4 they produce. Yeeehaaaa!

'HAS TIME RUN-OUT ?
Verified purchase
Have to admit being a sucker for special-effect feasts such as this.....
This a slightly futuristic tale (2019), after a series of devastating natural weather disasters the World comes together
to build a number of climate-controlling satellites to neutralise the severity of the storms, their chief architect Jake
Lawson (Gerard Butler) who spends much of his time overseeing their smooth-running.
However, after Jake acts without authorisation as is his way one too many times he becomes replaced by his brother
Max (Jim Sturgess)
Jake basically becomes a bit of a recluse until three years on there appears to be a malfunction in the satellite complex
when it is discovered that a Afghanistan village has been frozen, all residents lost......
After internal discussion at the highest level it is realised that there is only one man that can correct such a malfunction..
Jake, brother Max is instructed to try and persuade Jake to investigate the fault.
He will find things to be more serious than he could of imagined, is there a more sinister reason for what is happening
to the weather ? ....with time running out can Jake advert a Geostorm that would wipe out millions of souls and destroy
much of Earths infrastructure or is it too late ?
In truth, the theme takes on a similar format to that of earlier disaster-movies, however with a good cast line-up and
some stunning c.g.i the film though perhaps predictable is worthy of a glance in my view.

laughable, but not in a good way
Verified purchase
Oh man, I hired this because I wanted to see some disaster porn, after loving 'The Day After Tomorrow' years ago, but I can honestly say I've never seen a worse movie. I say seen, but I ended up fast forwarding through most of it. It's shockingly bad, and the very very few action scenes are shown in the trailer, so just watch that and save yourself some time and money

90s nostalgia, naughties CGI
Verified purchase
Geo storm is a mixed bag indeed, such a mixed experience I think I’ll go against my usual style of review and start with the negative parts to the movie first as opposed to the positive.

Now I know it’s a disaster movie and I wasn’t expecting a Shakespearean plot, but GEOSTORMS storyline is truly bad, so bad I could tell you all the spoilers and twists here and now and it wouldn’t make a blind bit of difference to your experience of the film simply because the film hasn’t really got one which isn’t pretty much explained on the title. The script is, let’s say poor. Jake ( Gerrard Butler ) a man who’s meant to be a scientist but comes across as an action hero actually talks about his childhood fishing trips where his father hid the cell ( mobile ) phone, how old are you Jake? Did they have cell phones when you were a child??? It really is that amateurish. A B movie with a triple A buget 120 million dollars to be precise.

Now to the positive. A 120 million dollars is a lot of money and can save a film. The CGI is good and great cast of actors can make a terrible script seem ok. The film is fast paced, action packed and sometimes so corny it will make you chuckle. I actually found myself enjoying this film despite its patently obvious weaknesses. Clearly no Oscar winning movie but
A good film just to sit back and enjoy

Save your money.

What a load of tripe. Tedious hero music throughout to make up for the pathetic and unbelievable storyline. What was Andy Garcia thinking of signing up for this heap of garbage? Was a waste of money and life and should have switched it off instead of trying to figure out if the film could possibly get any better towards the end. It didn't.

Geostorm - more like geo-lame
Verified purchase
I watched this with much anticipation because of the actors, with Gerard Butler in the lead role.

However, the dialogue was rather predictable and the 'Baddie' was easy to guess long before the tiring long winded explanation in the story. I really felt that the writers had an extremely dim view of the audience, so needed to 'dumb' things down far more. If this had been written 30 years ago, then it would be an excellent movie of the day. It wasn't so .... so perhaps it should not have been made.

Character cliches were just cringesome delivered with poor timing and ruining any humour that might have been had. Such a shame to see actors being directed this way and worse still, edited this way.

The CGI budget abounds and no expense spared, except in any creative ideas or sense of realism. As one reviewer pointed out, mobile phones didn't exist (cell phones) in the mid-1970's. Had the writer had an understanding of science beyond Grade 4, then he would know that space is a vacuum. So, the multitude of explosions, whooshing noises and all other creaks or metallic sounds otherwise are heard in atmosphere thus, this just shows the lack of understanding and the writer's fail ... as he strived hard to create that 1990 movie effect.

It was lame and boring - with action for action sake and very little relation to reality. The sanctimony of the clearly political message at the start and end of the film shows where the writers' beliefs lay.
For me, the entire composition was an awful Fail.

I gave it two Stars because Gerad Butler does try to be the action hero which is what he is good at. Casting him as a scientist in a stereotypical Hollywood action film just seems such a dated idea, best relegated to the nostalgia of a by-gone age.
The script, idea and editing were amateurish. University students can produce something far more compelling for action entertainment and using a fraction of the cost.

The writer and producer Dean Devlin should hang his head in shame and never go near a camera/script again - Ever!

Please - never again....

Even Rotton Tomatoes rated it at 16%. I wished I had looked before. My loss might be someone elses' gain.

I watched it until completion, because I had invested so much time already that can never be returned to my life.
If I can discourage anyone else from mistakenly wasting part of their life, then this review has been useful.

Big let down!!
Verified purchase
Love these kinds of films but this was a complete let down. I think Gerard Butler forgot how to act in this film or maybe he was just taking a rest!!! There is a distinct lack of big special effect scenes which surprised me given the trailers and hype. Slow moving and not really good at suspending disbelief - overall feeling not good! The science of it all is sorely lacking - not that these movies necessarily rely on science, but in Day After Tomorrow and 2012 at least there is an element of believability. It lacks conviction and falls short of an epic future disaster movie. Glad I only rented it cheaply on Amazon - would have been gutted if I'd paid more!!
