What’s more dangerous than weather? Evidentially, politics.
I’m oddly torn when it comes to Geostorm. It’s a great film masquerading as a terrible film. That’s the best way I can sum it up.
What I mean is that the film as a whole is enjoyable enough, and I had a great time while watching it, but it also suffers from plenty of cringe-worthy clichés. There were more than enough “fleshing out” elements, aspects to the story that really didn’t need to be included but kind of helps to flesh out characters and the world. But there’s also more “…they didn’t just” moments.
I know this film has been getting it’s fair share of negative reviews, and I think that all comes down to the trailer and marketing. It was made to look like it was going to be another Roland Emmerich popcorn disaster flick, like The Day After Tomorrow and 2012. When instead it’s a character driven film that includes disaster film elements like Deep Impact. If you go in expecting nonstop destruction, you are going to be disappointed.
So while I can totally see why a majority of the people disliked it, I personally enjoyed it. If I were to give it a rating, I’d give it a 7 out of 10.
