After reading the reviews nearly passed on Geostorm but having enjoyed
a few movies critics have panned and vice versa decided to brave the
storm (sorry) and risk it. Despite some clunky script at times &
stereotyping I settled down to a film i found not so much a disaster
movie but more a race against time mystery/thriller. And in that light
I quite enjoyed it.
The film is saved by some strong female characters (including Gerard's
daughter who manages to convincingly resemble my own 12 year old - a
mixture of plain speaking childhood vulnerability and strong common
sense) plus a concept thats half believable, if hugely depressing (in
light of recent weather disasters). The special effects are pretty
good. Perhaps we r spoiled and have seen too many Days after Tomorrow
and 2012s to appreciate them anymore.
