Geostorm (2017)


After an unprecedented series of natural disasters threatened the planet, the world's leaders came together to create an intricate network of satellites to control the global climate and keep everyone safe. But now, something has gone wrong: the system built to protect Earth is attacking it, and it becomes a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything and everyone along with it.




Geostorm (2017)



A.V. Club review. Most people are complaining that there's not enough geostorm, but I had almost the opposite reaction: So many cities are destroyed during the countdown that our heroes' efforts to prevent the geostorm seemed kind of pointless. It's already happening, Gerard. Everyone's dead. Just stay in space.


In the near future, when climate-controlling satellites malfunction and release disaster-creating small pods all over the world, a man heads into space to prevent the satellites from programming the small pods into creating a storm of epic proportions or a "geostorm," a storm composed of deadly natural disasters such as increasing huge tornadoes, colossal tsunamis, sudden release of fire whirls from the ground, fiery and scorching heat, scattering thunderstorms, dangerous falling of massive hailstones, and quickly happening polar vortices that will happen all over the world.


When the network of satellites designed to control the global climate start to attack Earth, it's a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything and everyone.


by Bill Chambers SPOILER WARNING IN EFFECT. It's the near future. Not much has changed, except the President isn't totally repulsive, "HoloFrames" have supplanted cell phones, and climate change is no longer an immediate threat, thanks to the creation of a global weather-management system called Dutch Boy, after the story of the little Dutch boy who plugs a leak in a dike with his finger. (Like all those movie scientists who've named their game-changer "Icarus," the christeners of Dutch Boy should've read to the end of the story.) Gerard Butler's Jake Lawson scienced Dutch Boy together but got kicked off the project when he switched it on ahead of schedule. Now, with the damn thing turning miles of Afghanistan desert into frozen tundra, White House lackey Max (Jim Sturgess with inexplicable hair) knows there is only one man who can get to the bottom of this glitch: his estranged brother Jake, who reticently returns to the International Climate Space Station (ICSS), leaving young daughter Hannah (Talitha Bateman) to fret for his safety and narrate the film for that soupçon of folksiness. More incidents accumulate both on the ground and miles above the earth, including a terrifying ordeal for a lady in a bikini who's cornered by a flash-freeze wave, leading Jake and Max to believe that President Palma (Andy Garcia) might be plotting a planet-wide attack of hellish weather--a "geostorm," if you will--in order to impede Dutch Boy's upcoming transfer of ownership from America to "the world."


What if, in the wake of more than a decade of devastating weather events, we finally found a way to control Mother Nature and the destruction her tirades entail? When catastrophic climate change endangers Earth\u2019s very survival, world governments unite and create Project Dutch Boy: a global net of satellites surrounding the planet that are armed with geo-engineering technologies designed to stave off the natural disasters. After successfully protecting the planet for two years, something is starting to go wrong. Two estranged brothers (Gerard Butler, Jim Sturgess) are tasked with solving the program\u2019s malfunction before a worldwide geostorm can engulf the planet. 041b061a72
