Although unbelievable and occasionally worthy of a few eye rolls, 'Geostorm' was not an entirely horrible science fiction film. It had a good message, good actors, and a good premise. It could've been better but it wasn't as bad as many people are saying.

This actually was a pretty good movie, I don't get why there are so many bad reviews.

"Geostorm" is a fun and interesting movie that I enjoyed watching with my family. It has a unique theme, a system of satellites to control the weather and something goes wrong... like usual ;) I would also like to note that "Geostorm" is very unrealistic scientifically speaking. Throughout the movie I noticed multiple things that shouldn't happen or be possible (i.e. bridge falling apart because of lightning or the shear size of creating a net around the earth and what about asteroids hitting the net causing damage). To conclude, I enjoyed this movie and would recommend it to those who enjoy a distinct sci-fi movie.

A better title would have been "Turdstorm".
Some of the worst acting, writing, and dialogue a person could imagine.
Just awful.
Yet, all the while, the special effects and destruction sequences are all top-notch.
Astounding juxtaposition.

A cheesy apocalyptic disaster movie. The majority of actors were good, whoever it was the script that fell short. Expect a lot of weird one liners from the characters.

Good popcorn movie with a serious message. Just how much time have we to mitigate the substantial effects of climate change? I'm a movie lover who is not in denial about that complex problem. For other movie lovers who are, consider taking 3 minutes to watch the special feature "The Search for Answers".

Action movies and/or conspiracy stories are usually not my cup of tea. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent watching this sci-fi action flick. Non-stop pace. Interesting brother interactions. Gerard Butler is always worth watching. Realistic looking space stuff.
Andy Garcia was great as President. I'll have to look for more of Daniel Wu. Richard Schiff was a welcome site; Ed Harris was enjoyable. Many other fine performances - particularly Alexandra Maria Lara. Glad the writers kept her role from going sideways into a different story.

An unfortunate vehicle for what are otherwise (mostly) not bad actors.

Some of the effects are impressive, but the premise is bonkers. I'm not sure who decided to bankroll this B-movie, but it's still a B-movie.

Opening narrative:
Everyone was warned but no one listened. A rise in temperature... ocean patterns changed and ice caps melted. They called it extreme weather. They didn't know what "extreme" was. In the year of 2019... hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and droughts unleashed a wave of destruction upon our planet. We didn't just lose towns or beach fronts. We lost entire cities. The East River swallowed Lower Manhattan. A heatwave killed 2 million people in Madrid in just one day. But in that moment facing our own extinction it became clear that no single nation could solve this problem alone. The world came together as one. And we fought back. Scientists from 17 countries, led by the U.S. and China worked tirelessly not as representatives of their nations but of humanity.

A geostorm. Simultaneous catastrophic weather events triggered all over the globe. Once they pass the minimum threshold, the storms will start
causing new storms. Like a chain reaction until they merge together.

Think of it like I'm going on a vacation for a week or two.
-To a place 250 miles straight up? And negative 450 degrees? Some holiday.

SPOILER ALERT:
I've given you an opportunity, Mr. President. You should take it.
-An opportunity? ...Let him go...It's genocide, Leonard!
You say genocide, I say preemptive strike.
-You've lost your mind!
Tomorrow, the sun will rise, all our enemies will be gone. Wiped away as if
by the hand of God!
-Why would you do this?
Because no one else would. I'm turning the clock back to 1945... when America was a shining city on a hill... not just a bank disguised as a country.
-By playing God?
What the hell is Dutch Boy if not playing God? Ask Max, he knows. Science is all about playing God. Sometimes, God doesn't play so nice.
