“Control the weather, control the world”

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “When the network of satellites designed to control the global climate start to attack Earth, it’s a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything and everyone.

An experimental weather regulating system called Dutch Boy has been weaponized to take out countries by creating geostorms. The story follows a stubborn, but charming, satellite designer (Gerard Butler) who, when the world’s climate-controlling satellites malfunction, has to work together with his estranged brother to save the world from a man-made storm of epic proportions. A trip into space follows, while on Earth a plot to assassinate the president begins to unfold.”

Movie Critics
…it’s so, so, so much fun. …It zips along… I made a conscious decision to buy its premise very early on, and realised half way through I was having so much fun watching the film. Not ironically: I had a massive grin on my face. …
Simon Brew, Den of Geek
…An inanely spectacular disaster movie… If you’ve ever wanted to see a tidal wave sweep over the horizon of a waterless desert or eggs frying on a superheated city street, “Geostorm” is the movie for you! …Devlin has engineered an elaborate plot under the pretext of cautionary entertainment, when in fact, his true motive is to show as much devastation as possible. …
Peter Debruge, Variety
…The action scenes in “Geostorm” are strong… The problem is that the film keeps slowing down for the political moments. …
Rick Bentley, Tribune News Service
…There's self-sacrifice and heroism in the mix, to be sure. But frankly, this tale would probably make more sense if you could just turn off the dialogue and watch the splashy images roll by. …
Bob Hoose, Plugged In
…not enough Gerard Butler… The movie explains its science in a talky, dry way that makes you immediately check out. …a big, boring mess…
Randy Cordova, The Republic (Phoenix AZ)
…The planetary disaster film equivalent of a two-hour call to tech support… Makes one nostalgic for “The Day After Tomorrow.” …badly deployed and oddly unmoving mayhem…
John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
…Gerard Butler's dull disaster movie is a washout… [2/5]
