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's 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's malfunction before a worldwide Geostorm can engulf the planet.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Lacking impressive visuals, well-written characters, or involving drama, Geostorm aims for epic disaster-movie spectacle but ends up simply being a disaster of a movie.

Tons of CGI disaster/sci-fi mayhem; eye-rolling story.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Geostorm is an action/disaster movie starring Gerard Butler and Jim Sturgess about a global superstorm that threatens to wipe out the planet. So you can expect tons of large-scale death and destruction (whole cities wiped out abruptly, etc.) -- as well as a fight, a shootout, a car chase, and a character dying after getting hit by a car -- but nothing particularly bloody/graphic. There's also occasional mild language ("s--t," "goddamn," etc.). Younger kids could be scared by images of people instantly freezing to death, but no suffering is conveyed. While the messages and characters are both pretty thin, the movie does portray women in multiple positions of skill and power and a young girl who's scientifically adept.
