Geostorm is directed by Dean Devlin and stars Gerard Butler, Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Andy Garcia, and Ed Harris. The plot of the movie is when the network of satellites designed to control the global climate starts to attack Earth, it's a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide Geostorm wipes out everything and everyone. When I saw the trailer for this movie I knew I was going to end up hating it, but I was hoping that it would be the kind of bad movie where you can have fun with it and that is not at all what this is. I get the appeal of these types of movies, but they have never appealed to me. You should know if you are interested in this that this movie is not about a storm that destroys the entire planet. It is actually a movie about trying to prevent a Geostorm. You should also know that the poster for this film which is Gerard Butler clutching his daughter while he looks at a tidal wave that is not in the movie. In fact, Gerard Butler has maybe only one scene with his daughter the entire movie and what is shown on the poster is not it. Gerard Butler's character is up in space for the majority of the movie trying to prevent this Geostorm.    This movie just like all the other disaster movies tries to take itself way too seriously. Everything that happens in this movie is predictable and there are no surprises. Most of the jokes are laced with pop-culture references which I fucking hate.  The casting is awful I didn't believe that Gerard Butler is the world's smartest scientist. I didn't believe that Jim Sturgess works with the president. This movie is so tedious and boring to watch and when it was over I had a hard time deciding whether or not it should be my new worst film of the year.  0 out of 5 stars for Geostorm. I hope you enjoyed my review.
