When the network of satellites designed to control the global climate starts to attack Earth, it’s a race against the clock for its creator to uncover the real threat before a worldwide Geostorm wipes out everything and everyone. (IMDb)
Sloppy plotting (turns out hacking into the White House secret files is a breeze), mediocre CGI, awfully cheesy dialogue and narration, but so help me, I’m a sucker for these globe-hopping movies with intense place title cards (HONG KONG. 9:32AM) that pop up every two minutes at the bottom of the screen. A dose of political thrills adds some pointed suspense to the jumbo disaster action, and the tension released in the final act shows the film was decently effective even if poorly crafted.
