At the end of the Hong Kong heat/destruction sequence when Cheng Long comes to a stop, the car navigation system shows the temperatures outside cooling down. The car has Hong Kong plates and a steering wheel on the right. However, the system displays the temperature in Fahrenheit, which is not used in Hong Kong. Fahrenheit is spelled in Simplified characters. Hong Kong Chinese, and most American Chinese who left China before characters were officially simplified, use traditional Chinese characters. Car navigation systems usually include a "local" configuration, but a mix of American and mainland Chinese settings is very unlikely. See more »
How to be a successful movie in 2017: Explosions, clichés, CGI & Gerard Butler
I don't know who keeps asking movies about natural disasters, but Independence Day: Resurgence, 2012, San Andreas, among others, proved that it's not a very good idea. But as long as the majority likes it, who am I to judge?
OK, let's begin. Gerard Butler plays a man who saves our planet from natural problems, storms, cold winters, with the help of a space station, zZzZzZZzzZZz.
Geostorm is so full of CGI, that at one point you start to get headaches and you'll never understand what's behind the desire of destroying the planet. It has something to do with the White House, I didn't catch the idea because I felt asleep for a short period of time.
If you want a film full of disasters that are also eye-candy, Geostorm is not the best idea. The movie is the same as other disaster flicks, nothing new. I believe the writer wrote the script in 2-3 days.
If you want something mindless, with a total waste of talent, full of clichés and loud sounds, Geostorm is the perfect choice.
