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.
The last Gunslinger: Roland Deschain, has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O'Dim, also known as the Man in Black, and determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower that holds the universe together. With the fate of the world at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle, as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.
A humble businessman with a buried past seeks justice when his daughter is killed in an act of terrorism. A cat-and-mouse conflict ensues with a government official, whose past may hold clues to the killers' identities.
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.
Several cast and crew, even extras, noted that lead star/producer Gerard Butler did not appear to know many of his lines. See more »
When Max is watching a news report on the Rio de Janeiro storm, the map shown on screen puts Rio de Janeiro almost outside of Brazil to the south. It should be to the northeast of the larger concentration of lights (city of São Paulo). See more »
I gotta show you something. Take a look at this.
You remember that day dad took us fishing? He dropped his cell phone in Key Biscayne.
Our dad never took us fishing.
Oh... that's sad. I'm sorry um, just not any good talking about dad issues.
What? what? no... no no n. It's a code.

Live Free or Die Hard Meets 2012, But Better Than You Thought..
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.
*Had Bruce Willis been in it... would have made it an 8.5
