AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: 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.

Critic Reviews for Geostorm

All Critics (67) | Top Critics (11)

The script, every scene of which you've seen 100 times already, ends with a sermon urging us to unite and salvage the future, though this rings hollow coming at the end of a $120 million exercise in sci-fi denial.

Big, dumb and boring, it finds the co-writer of Independence Day hoping to start a directing career with the same playbook - but forgetting several rules of the game.

Really could have used a Sharknado or two to liven things up.

"Geostorm" uses digital technology to lay waste to a bunch of cities and hacky screenwriting to assault the dignity of several fine actors.

October 20, 2017 | Full Review…

"Geostorm" has a more clever premise than it needs to get to its ultimate goal of trashing some of our planet's nicest places. But the results are still mostly dull-witted.

It'll probably be most appealing to scientists looking for a good laugh.

Audience Reviews for Geostorm

With the world of film awash in red boots and capes, yah, super heroes, we moviegoers might be forgiven if we forget that old staple of entertainment, the disaster flick. Not to worry, as it's picked up again here, CGI devastation too tempting to pass up, bigger, louder, more encompassing. There's a tie-in tale, as well, of government conspiracy, and as a divided familial entanglement that needs sorting, but you'll figure those out long before the Sahara gets hit with a tsunami. Unless, of course, you haven't seen all the world devastation movies previous to this. What? You haven't??? Then settle back with some Jujubes and popcorn and a Coke while a hailstorm Cecil B. DeMille would die for sends beachgoers running.

Not a terrible film but certainly nothing great either, I'm a big Gerard Butler fan so I was always going to see this movie no matter what people or critics said and it's ok, I wish I could say more than that, This movie should of been great during its disaster scenes and let's face it the only reason 2012 was any good because of its amazing effects and I expected the same with this movie but in this they weren't very good for this day and age (2017) and with a $100,000,000 budget they should of been so much better, I can't comment on the 3D as I watched the 2D version but maybe it might of looked better in places with the 3D, The story was nothing new and it did get predictable at the end, It had it's fun moments but it's nothing we haven't seen before, It had a good idea that was poorly executed which seems to be a theme in Hollywood now days.

Disaster films like Geostorm are fun and entertaining to watch especially so when you have very low expectations and have some time to while away on a lazy afternoon. However, the story was so ludicrous that I had to go look up Uncle Google to check if the science behind this script was correct! I was not impressed at all. I don't mind apocalyptic films so long as the story makes sense, and the science behind it was believable. Makes me wonder why Gerard Butler always lends himself to such films. Only watch if you really have nothing better to do.
