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.
Disgraced Secret Service agent (and former presidential guard) Mike Banning finds himself trapped inside the White House in the wake of a terrorist attack; using his inside knowledge, Banning works with national security to rescue the President from his kidnappers.
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.
Just after Cheng Long is hit by the car Secret Service Agent Sarah Wilson follows a vehicle down a street with the dome of The United States Capital clearly shown in the background. There are no streets off of Dupont Circle that would show The Capital building in the line of sight. The closest point would possibly be along Pennsylvanian Avenue via Washington Circle Park which is .6 miles away and that would still require looking through The White House and Executive Building Complex.

Everyone was warned, but no one listened. A rise in temperature, ocean patterns changed and ice caps melted. They call ii 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.
