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.

News & Interviews for Geostorm
Critic Reviews for Geostorm
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.
"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.
Audience Reviews for Geostorm
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.
It's possible to enjoy Geostorm if you treat it like a comedy - the comedic value being how much of an atrocity the film is.
Geostorm is no other than your low-quality disaster movie with minimal to no effort being made in the process. You just have to sometimes wonder who even thought this was a great idea to show to people.
