Geostorm (2017)

I’m a sucker for disaster movies, but even I have my 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 stand out thanks to a barely ambulant shrug of a performance.

Rating: ★★ (out of 5)
