Storyline

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.

Goofs

When going to Hong Kong. The text refers to "Hong Kong, China". This is not correct since Hong Kong is it's own province, with it's own flag etc, and are never refered to China like that. It should simply say just "Hong Kong". See more »

Quotes

Jake Lawson: [on Dutchboy] I worked on this day in and day out, week after week, for years. What did they do? They turned it into a gun.

Live Free or Die Hard Meets 2012, But Better Than You Thought..
18 October 2017 | by MickandRortySee all my reviews

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.

7/10

*Had Bruce Willis been in it... would have made it an 8.5
