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.

Quotes

[first lines]
Hannah Lawson: [narrating] 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. In the year 2019, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and droughts unleashed a wave of destruction upon our planet. We didn't just lose towns or beachfronts. We lost entire cities. The East River swallowed Lower Manhattan. A heat wave in Madrid killed two million people in just one day. But in that ...

Hmmmm
15 February 2019 | by ktat01See all my reviews

I did not see this in theaters, but dvr'd it on hbo and (not kidding) had to watch it in 3 viewings because I was getting that bored of it. But I did want to see the ending so I guess that's a positive. Hollywood anymore has just turned super preachy and full of propaganda. It's very annoying to just want to watch a movie or tv show for "entertainment" but then come to find out it has ulterior motives and a message like a darn after school special. I get it, if the government is involved in the plot of a movie there may be a political agenda attached, but they angle the movie in an attempt to influence personal views. No doubt creating a one sided plot and preaches to the audience. Not to mention the "one world" new world order type agenda shoved down our throats. Suggesting any form of nationalism being down right evil. Not even accounting for the obvious environmental agenda, it's just way to preachy and demeaning to the audience. Bravo for the programming attempt. But hey you still have the attention of the sleepers.
