I think the critics on IMDB has been especially harsh on this movie with an overall rating of only 5.3. I'd give it about a 6.2 for pure entertainment. Marks will be deducted for less than stellar dialogues, inconsistent acting from some of the characters and not great science. It is a fun movie to watch if you like action and special effects.

This is an action movie, or at least it should be one, centred around science. Good action overall, especially with the special effects. However, I wish they'd just cut all the attempts at drama; it just led to some cheesy lines at th wrong time. If you can overlook these, it's not too bad a movie.

Jim Sturgiss (the younger brother) was a little over the top in his 'anxious' looks. Got a little bit tiring after a while. I don't see why he'd be gasping for air in some of the scenes. The daughter - and there is only one - could not quite nail that role. Is she 13 or is she older. She looked like 13 but she acted like an adult. Either poor directing or over-acting on a young performer. Her lines were not typical of a kid either. Gerald Butler was not convincing as a scientist type. That role could have gone to somebody else who might look a little less 'blue collar'. (Apologies if I'm stereotyping casting a bit.)

The best performer was Abbie Cornish. She's believable in her role. Great actor. I think she'd be getting more dramatic type roles and mentioned at the Oscars some day. Where do they find all these talents in Australia?

My recommendations: watch this movies with friends or a casual family meetups. Not a date or romantic movie for sure.

Very light on science, okay for entertainment... sort of. Except for the eventual stated reason for the disasters, same old stuff, ie, get rid of perceived enemies. Same old outcomes.

I mean, if you just want to watch a quick movie with some decent special effects, this is it. Don't expect anything else though.

Light on scientific logic but still entertaining enough to watch.

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.

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.
