Geostorm ★★★½

Preposterous, underdeveloped, and overwrought, Dean Devlin's "Geostorm" still manages to entertain despite its intentions to stink. Revolving around weather manufacturing satellites and the people bent on saving or savaging the world with them, the film combines science-fiction, political intrigue, and disaster drama in its pulpy, hokey, eyeroll-inducing mix. Devlin does not offer anything refined, combining splashy effects with operatic story beats; but the production is eye-catching, and the cast is game. As over-the-top and under-intelligent as it all may be, "Geostorm" succeeds in being a capably enjoyable disaster flick.
