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.
A boy haunted by visions of a dark tower from a parallel reality teams up with the tower's disillusioned guardian to stop an evil warlock known as the Man in Black who plans to use the boy to destroy the tower and open the gates of Hell.
Mortal hero Bek teams with the god Horus in an alliance against Set, the merciless god of darkness, who has usurped Egypt's throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict.
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.
Hannah in her narration says that the satellite system was called Dutch boy after the boy who put his finger in a dam. In the novel 'Hans Brinker, or the Silver Skates' by Mary Mapes Dodge, the boy puts his finger in a dike to stop the ocean. A dam is across a river. See more »
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 ...

An average disaster flick which could have been lot better
Unfortunately this had potential to be one of the greatest disaster flicks but it failed in many ways.
scenario had serious questions as to why things happened and many questions answered not until the very end of the movie and still the reasons given for the motivation of the main villain of the movie was at least ridiculous.
The most important flaw though was that we never saw what we should see in a disaster film until the last only 20 minutes or so in the movie.
last 20 minutes were the best part of the movie answering the questions and watching the great effects and disaster scenes BUT more than first hour in the movie we mostly got bla,,,,bla...bla.....and nothing more.
If u are a fan of disaster movies then u will like the movie but not anything past that.
it's not one of the best....not one of the worst either.
so watch it and judge for yourself.
I am a fan of this genre and own more than 50 disaster movies and many of them are b movies direct to DVD.
geostorm although a theatrical big budget release was not so much better than those movies like category 6 and 7, night of the twister...etc....excluding the S.E but it deserves to be in my DVD disaster collection.
