Dean Devlin makes his directorial debut with the relentlessly mediocre disaster flick GEOSTORM. It is simply a Frankenstein's monster created from the worst impulses of his frequent collaborator Roland Emmerich (ID4, 2012, Stargate). Gerard Butler playing the material absolutely straight is admirable as in his other CGI stinker GODS OF EGYPT.
Speaking of which, the visual effects are wildly inconsistent. Some shots look decent while others look the level of a television movie. Given that Dean Devlin had worked a lot in television, perhaps that's not surprising.
