When the network of satellites designed to control the global climate starts to attack Earth, it's a race against the clock for its creator to uncover the real threat before a worldwide Geostorm wipes out everything and everyone.
When catastrophic climate change endangers Earth's very survival, world governments unite and create the Dutch Boy Program: a world wide net of satellites, surrounding the planet, that are armed with geoengineering technologies designed to stave off the natural disasters. After successfully protecting the planet for three years, something is starting to go wrong. Two estranged brothers are tasked with solving the program's malfunction before a world wide Geostorm can engulf the planet.
Gerald Butlers character was the head of the international team that built the entire system and spent a huge amount of time on the space station, yet only a couple of years after being fired walks into a meeting on that station and none of the people working there recognise him?

Live Free or Die Hard Meets 2012, But Better Than You Thought..
This is an action-packed movie that will entertain you; and you will feel pretty okay about what you've just witnessed.
Very nice special effects. The storms were nicely done. CGI was convincing.
Why I think this works better than other "Natural Disaster" films is because they did not revolve the plot around the storms...the storms were just the vehicle of destruction used. It's more like a Live Free Or Die Hard conspiracy, but instead of hi-jacking the IoT, they are hi-jacking weather control satellites.
Good CGI, a fun movie.
*Had Bruce Willis been in it... would have made it an 8.5
