Storyline

When catastrophic climate change endangers Earth's very survival, world governments unite and create the Dutch Boy Program: a world wide net of satellites, surrounding the planet, that are armed with geoengineering technologies designed to stave off the natural disasters. After successfully protecting the planet for three years, something is starting to go wrong. Two estranged brothers are tasked with solving the program's malfunction before a world wide Geostorm can engulf the planet.

Trivia

Re-shoots took place in December 2016 under executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer and writer Laeta Kalogridis. Dean Devlin was still in charge of the film, but unavailable, so veteran director Danny Cannon was hired for the job. Katheryn Winnick, who played Jake Lawson's ex-wife, was replaced by Julia Denton.

Goofs

In the initial sequence, the satellites are shown as modifying and controlling the weather by sending some sorts of missiles and requiring the presence of the main satellite base to provide them with more ammunition. Yet when the geostorm episode starts all satellite suddenly appear to influence the weather using beams and energy waves of some sort, not projectiles anymore, and therefore being able to influence the weather without anyone involved.

Despite familiar tropes, Geostorm is surprisingly timely, entertaining and with a lot of heart.
17 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

In Geostorm, Earth is beset by natural disasters. In facing adversity, mankind developed a satellite station to prevent these catastrophes. While people overcame this problem, another conflict arises when it becomes opportune to use the technology as a weapon for sole global domination.

The setting in which the story takes place, you can say, parallels our own at the present in which we are experiencing technological advancements which perks we use to solve our crises but also create further dilemma as countries individually vie to be the world superpower.

Going to see the movie, I wasn't expecting much for it because it seemed like a so-so movie that's probably been done before only re- released with a "semi different plot" under a different title. But I was surprised by how entertaining it is. There's the timeliness of its subject, there's definitely humor (which is funny but I thought they somehow overdid with some of the dialogue) but this one has also dramatic scenes that would touch you. The pathos really got me emotionally involved with what the characters are experiencing. This aspect I really enjoyed.

The downside, I can still say that it seems a lot of it's contents were borrowed from/ inspired by previous natural disaster/sci-fi flicks such as Day After Tomorrow ( look at one of its posters for instance), Armageddon, and Gravity to name a few. This might be a turnoff for moviegoers who are expecting originality and it will most likely be so but for me, I got over it and had myself a good time in the cinema. It is definitely not the best movie this year or ever but its up there with the good, entertaining ones I really enjoyed watching this year.
