What it's about:

After an unprecedented series of natural disasters afflicts our planet, the world’s leaders come together to create an intricate network of satellites to control the global climate and keep everyone safe. But, something has gone wrong—the system built to protect Earth is attacking us, and it’s a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes everything and everyone out.

What the critics thought:

"Geostorm" finds ways to draw attention away from an interesting use of weather as a weapon by using a cold front of political jabber. - Rick Bentley, Tribune News Service

If you're the kind of person who hunts for a "good bad movie" then beer yourself up because this is the most entertaining two-star film of 2017.- Liam Maguren,

Geostorm is tone-deaf, witless, oddly unspectacular and utterly disposable. - Graeme Tuckett,

The climate change angle is mere window dressing for what is essentially another 'Gerard Butler action film'. - Ben Sin, South China Morning Post
