Sci-fi / Adventure

Dean Devlin's near-future world, humanity has taken control of the weather, enabling us to prevent deadly natural disasters. But when the planet's climate control satellites begin to malfunction, their designer, Jake Lawson (Gerard Butler), must race to avert global catastrophe. Geostorm relies so heavily on its impressive special effects that it seems acting, dialogue, narrative, and wardrobe have taken a back seat. After a year of devastating extreme weather events, what should have been a timely cautionary tale about climate change is let down by a clumsy and contrived plot.
