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 »

Reminded me more of a low (very low) budget disaster movie
This was bad.... really bad! I am a big disaster movie fan and can sit through most things, but wow this was really boring.. the characters are shallow, predictable and the chemistry between them stilted and forced.
The special effects were OK, but you just didn't get any sense of the fear because there was no character that developed enough for you to fear for them.
I think a better movie would have been Gerard Butler developing the satellite system and saving the world from Global Warming in the first place.. at least that may have been believable.
I watched Geo Disaster on Syfy the other day and at the time was thinking that it would be a poor mans Geostorm.. but seriously it turned out to be the better of the two films.. that should tell you just how dreadful this film was. It only gets 2 because the special effects were OK.
