Geostorm Movie Review

Updated on October 21, 2017

Alec is a film critic with a true passion for the film industry & hopes his reviews and articles will help launch his career.

If you're a fan of disaster films then you're probably pumped for Geostorm, am I right? Well save your money! Splice together Armageddon, The Day After Tomorrow, and 2012 then cut out 85% of the action and add unnecessary plot elements and you've got Geostorm, a highly disappointing film that is illogical and nonsensical.

Geostorm follows a group of scientists who banded together to create a space station dedicated to controlling the weather with mini satellites which have their own functions and capabilities. But when the station's operating system is infected by a virus, creator Jake Lawson must leave everything behind and return to the station to fix the station before a Geostorm devastates the planet.

The CGI could be good in places and it could be bad in places. Either way, it was obvious this was made for 3D. The ironic thing is, not enough happens to warrant a 3D viewing. There might have been 4 short scenes of destruction and even those aren't major.

The acting was probably the only really good thing about the film. All the actors did their best with the material they were given. Maybe they were fooled into thinking it'd be better than it was too.

The worst part was the writing. Several points of the plot were unnecessarily added and served zero purpose other than perhaps to copy other destruction films in the hopes of being as good as them.

In conclusion, I advise you to not waste your money on this flick. It's definitely not worth it. I give the film a 1.5 out of 4.

      I never liked The Day After Tomorrow or 2012. Thanks for giving me good reason to pass on this one.
