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 two 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.
This film tells the story of a network of satellites that controls weather. When the satellites fail, the world is in for apocalyptic weather that will end humanity.
The trailer appears to tell people that "Geostorm" is a natural disaster thriller. The explosions in Hong Kong are breathtaking, and the tsunami in Dubai is very convincing that it looks real. Just the extreme weather scenes are quite impressive already, but what the trailer doesn't tell you is that there is a major conspiracy subplot in the film as well. The conspiracy keeps you guessing what is happening, and maintains a heightened level of suspense and thrill. The interaction of the two brothers is very good as well, as they go from being estranged to reaching resolution. It is very touching. I thoroughly enjoyed this film, and it's an unexpectedly calendaring natural disaster and political thriller.
