Geostorm is a 2017 American science fiction disaster film directed, co-written, and co-produced by Dean Devlin in his feature film directorial debut.

Plot

After an unprecedented series of natural disasters threatened the planet, the world's leaders came together to create an intricate network of satellites to control the global climate and keep everyone safe. But now, something has gone wrong: the system built to protect Earth is attacking it, and it becomes a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything and everyone along with it.

Why It Sucks

  1. The plot is messed up.
  2. Terrible visual effects.
  3. Forgettable characters.
  4. Bland acting.
  5. False advertising: Despite what the poster shows, none of them are happened.
  6. The scene where the egg gets cracked and burned on the road is pointless.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Lorne Balfe's score is decent.

Reception

Geostorm received largely negative reviews from critics and audiences, with criticism focused on the "uninspiring" story and "lackluster" visual effects, although Lorne Balfe's score are prised. On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 16% based on 88 reviews, and an average rating of 3.57/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Lacking impressive visuals, well-written characters, or involving drama, Geostorm aims for epic disaster-movie spectacle but ends up simply being a disaster of a movie.". On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating to reviews, the film has a weighted average score of 21 out of 100, based on 22 critics, indicating "generally unfavorable reviews".
