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.

Mortal hero Bek teams with the god Horus in an alliance against Set, the merciless god of darkness, who has usurped Egypt's throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict.
A headhunter whose life revolves around closing deals in a survival-of-the-fittest boiler room, battles his top rival for control of their job placement company -- his dream of owning the company clashing with the needs of his family.
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.

Two estranged brothers are tasked with solving the program's malfunction before a world wide Geostorm can engulf the planet.
Sticky Studios released a game under the same name, which Apple featured. It keeps the same premise but follows an alternative plot with three people gathering data on Earth to locate a rogue satellite. The game is a turn-based puzzler, and generally has had very positive reviews. See more »
Hannah in her narration says that the satellite system was called Dutch boy after the boy who put his finger in a dam. In the novel 'Hans Brinker, or the Silver Skates' by Mary Mapes Dodge, the boy puts his finger in a dike to stop the ocean. A dam is across a river. See more »
Everyone was warned, but no one listened. A rise in temperature, ocean patterns changed and ice caps melted. They call it extreme weather. They didn't know what "extreme" was.

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
