Gerard Butler playing a stubborn but charming satellite designer who, when the world’s climate-controlling satellites malfunction, has to work together with his estranged brother to save the world from a man-made storm of epic proportions. A trip into space follows, while on Earth a plot to assassinate the president begins to unfold.
I expected the first film I saw Ed Harris in this year to be Daron Aronofsky's Mother. I was wrong. About 20 minutes into Geostorm, he shows up as the US Secretary of State and aside from the obvious “gimmie my cheque” stamp on his forehead, let’s just say there is a Clancy Brown in Daredevil Season 2 thing going on. I guess the good news in all this is, my remaining experiences with Harris in 2017 are sure to be the opposite of mind-numbing.
I have limited time each week to see as many movies as I can. This weekend it came down to a choice between "The Snowman" and "Geostorm". Due to the chilly buzz I'd been hearing on the Michael Fassbender slasher thriller I decided to go with the weather armageddon thriller instead. Walking out of the theater the first thing that came to mind was: ""The Snowman" couldn't be this bad."
