Revolution of Traditional Disaster Film: Impressive visuals, well-written characters, involving drama, Geostorm aims for epic disaster-movie spectacle!
The review 'Lacking impressive visuals, well-written characters, or involving drama, Geostorm aims for epic disaster-movie spectacle but ends up simply being a disaster of a movie.' is a lie, and anti-China campaign! This sci-fi disaster film is disaster for poorly made genre films of contemporary industries! Geostorm is truly photogenic one for real movie theaters! Traditional disaster films depict natural disasters and people around it. And antagonist is nature. However, this film not only depicts the cut of the age weapon that is outer-spaced satellites which can control geographic phenomenon. That is the most effective weapon than nuclear weapons that cannot use in real war. In this film, true disaster and true evil come from human side. Ed Harris played the antagonist, political extremist who conspires use of the satellites 'the Dutch Boy' as weapon to bring about Armageddon against humans. The intelligent conspiracy to bring about killing of people is covered in the way of seemingly an accident. This intelligence is quite real in the real political context of this era. Jake and Max's employment relationship is also typical of this age. Younger Max hires and fires elder Jake even though Jake is his relative...This film's personal development is among Jake and Max's recovering of mutual relationship and cooperation to shut down and clean up the virus- infected geography control satellite 'Dutch Boy'. I'm personally impressed with the Mong Kok, Hong Kong sequence that is familiar place for me. In this film, Hong Kong proudly represented the goodness and international character of China. This kind of joint operation is helpful for Hong Kong film industry and its market! Thank you all for this real blockbuster master piece which something new to us!
