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 two 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.

could have been a great movie but not a really disaster movie
14 October 2017 | by (Taiwan) – See all my reviews

The theme of this movie is inventive, and original: men control the weather but fail to control the heart and ambition. Seems typical, I mean the ambition part, but the weather control part and 'weather as a weapon' is great.

The opening is great which gives men a heads-up that in the near future human beings may encounter such extreme weather change. Though this is not uncommon to see in many movies, including Interstellar which also centers on the theme that the Earth is no longer a suitable habitat for human due to extreme weather.

However, the movie focuses too much, I mean way too much, on the emotional touch and brotherhood conflict. Don't get me wrong. Sentiment or feelings are crucial to any films. Bus in Geostorm such conflicts have no EMOTIONS at all. The only good scene that presenting the brotherhood is the talk in front of Gerard Butler's porch. And that's how the whole movie goes down. Meanwhile the 'weather as weapon' scene is far from enough and diverse. For instance, the 5 (or six?) tornadoes in India (perhaps other middle east areas) just hovering around.

In all, from 0:10 to 1:15, you can skip it. Nothing really important happened during this part.

Anther key element that ruins the movie is the sound effect, which is lousy and cheap as if I am watching a normal TV drama.

If you are looking for a disaster (or scifi) movie, then Geostorm may not be a good choice.
