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.

Trivia

On December 11, 2014, the studio shifted Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle (2018) and gave its release date of October 21, 2016, for this film. In September 2015 the studio moved the release to January 13, 2017. Later, the release was rescheduled once more, to October 20, 2017. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the Hong Kong heat/destruction sequence when Cheng Long comes to a stop, the car navigation system shows the temperatures outside cooling down. The car has Hong Kong plates and a steering wheel on the right. However, the system displays the temperature in Fahrenheit, which is not used in Hong Kong. Fahrenheit is spelled in Simplified characters. Hong Kong Chinese, and most American Chinese who left China before characters were officially simplified, use traditional Chinese characters. Car navigation systems usually include a "local" configuration, but a mix of American and mainland Chinese settings is very unlikely. See more »

Quotes

Shutting down your brain in 10... 9... 8...
20 November 2017 | by mau-26See all my reviews

Hollywood studio boss: "Okay, folks, I want you to use everything that's been going through the global press for the last two years: Occupational disasters, storms, climate change. Just mix it together like a salad. And because my son has just turned twelve, I want this film to be dedicated only to twelve-year-old males. Okay, my son is not the brightest and he loves explosions and space ships - preferably exploding space ships - so make something he'll like for sure. Blow something up and stuff like that."

Submissive employee:"But shouldn't we also involve women?" Hollywood studio boss: "Sure. The standard clichés will do fine: a little girl who is interested in electronics and science, although we all know that girls at this age are just sitting in front of Youtube, watching make-up videos. But hey, that's what people want to see. And something about a female special agent kicking balls. That came out pretty well in the' 80s, I'm sure it still works."

Submissive servant:"Don't you think that we are mentally undercharging the audience and pretending that they're all mentally under-exposed?"

Hollywood studio boss: "Hell, they ARE. Oh - and because the whole world laughs at our President, I want the President of the United States to play a role that is better off than this living joke in the Oval Office. I want my son to believe that the President of the United States is smarter than Goofy. At least."
