Geostorm (2017)

I’m a sucker for disaster movies, but even I have limits. This big-budget bomb is staggeringly stupid from the beginning, with a whack of phony pseudo-science substituting for a plot and a narrative. Despite some tremendous special effects, none of the destruction scenes register any menace or drama, while the movie’s barely-developed central characters go from one meandering conversation to another while the audience impatiently waits for goods that never come. Among many disinterested performers, Gerard Butler manages to standout for a barely ambulant shrug of a performance.
