Geostorm: Movie Review


By: Matt Suzara

Government leaders all across the globe unite and create the Dutch Boy program to prevent climate change that endangers the world. This program consists of satellites to prevent major natural disasters from happening in our planet. However, when one of the satellites went berserk, two estranged brothers (Gerard Butler and Jim Sturgess) are forced to work together and solve the problem before a Geostorm hit and destroy mankind.


Geostorm is another disaster flick we tend to get in our cinemas each year. The visuals are pretty decent as the studio gave the film to spend a big budget under its name. The film also has a pretty ridiculous premise at stake, but it all boils down whether you get entertained or not. I can say that the film is stuffed with exciting bits even its a little predictable and cliched. The whole brother thing was a bit cheesy and not necessarily needed, but they still managed to pull it through even with an awkward chemistry between Gerard Butler and Jim Sturgess.


There is no other way to enjoy the film but to limit yourself from expecting too much. There are plenty of decent scene,s especially when it comes to destroying different cities with hard-hitting disasters killing peoples like ants. However, some scenes are a bit excessive, especially on the car chase part.


Gerard Butler is back not just by saving the president but the entire world. He still got a lot of gas in the tank and can still lead a bombastic film under his name. It is good that Butler is surrounded with an equally great set of supporting cast to back him up. Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Andy Garcia and Ed Harris all have done their parts efficiently.


Overall, Geostorm is an entertaining popcorn flick. It is still best to be seen on the big screen for a full reel time experience. It may not be as great as San Andreas or The Day After Tomorrow but if you did enjoy those films; there is no reason for you to miss this.
