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.

Predictable
20 October 2017 | by parleon-thedonSee all my reviews

Geostorm is one of those disaster flicks that takes itself too seriously. The first act in the movie was boring and slow, nothing significant happened. The second act's mystery plot was predictable, zero interest, and no intrigued. The third and final act's mystery unfolded itself to reveal something I felt was mundane and mediocre. By the time everything was finished, I had zero interest in most of characters and events that occurred throughout the movie.

The first act explained how the satellites worked and how they protected the earth from its own weather, the explanation was believable in context. The second act set up the mystery part which was my least favorite. By the time the mystery was set-up, I had already figured it out. I realized that by this point, I'd been patiently waiting for the action to transpire. One random action scene occurred during the middle section of the film, it felt out of place. After the believable opening, the predictable mystery, the third act picked up, the action kicked in, and I was satisfied. Hannah Lawson played exceptionally by Talitha Bateman was great in her role. Every scene with Talitha Bateman was exceptional. I enjoyed Talitha Bateman's on screen chemistry with Gerard Butler, their family relationship was believable. Abbie Cornish was great here as well, my second favorite character. I didn't care about any other characters here because there wasn't any real development with them. Overall, this movie is run-of-the-mill predictable with zero fun up until the end.
