Sci-Fi/Disaster: A satellite designer tries to save the world before malfunctioning climate-controlling satellites create storms that will merge into one catastrophic "geostorm."
Facing unprecedented storms brought on by climate change, the United States and a number of other countries designed a system of climate-controlling satellites -- collectively known as "Dutch Boy" and controlled from the International Space Station -- that could nip such storms in the bud and thus save countless lives and prevent gargantuan property losses. Built by satellite designer Jake Lawson (GERARD BUTLER) and with his younger brother, Max (JIM STURGESS), getting all of the politicians and countries on board, the system has worked well. But when Jake once again ruffles political feathers, Max -- who's secretly been put in charge of Dutch Boy -- reluctantly fires his brother.

Three years later, weird weather anomalies begin to occur, including an entire town in Afghanistan being instantaneously frozen solid, while chief engineer of the Pacific division of Dutch Boy, Cheng Long (DANIEL WU), barely survives a wave of destruction that damages a great deal of Hong Kong. Under the command of President Andrew Palma (ANDY GARCIA) and specifically Secretary of State Leonard Dekkom (ED HARRIS), Max -- who's secretly dating Secret Service agent Sarah Wilson (ABBIE CORNISH) who's on the President's detail -- is ordered to find his estranged brother and get him to fix the problem.

Living out of a trailer with partial custody of his 13-year-old daughter, Hannah (TALITHA BATEMAN), Jake initially wants no part of this, but it doesn't take much for Max to convince him to head up to the ISS and see what's happening. There, he finds chief scientist Ute Fassbinder (ALEXANDRA MARIA LARA) and they and their small team begin to look for answers. As they do so, more systems fail and those with access to computer systems find themselves locked out, resulting in both Jake and Max believing something nefarious is going on. As they try to figure out who's responsible, they're in a race against time as it's quite likely all of the separate outbreaks of severe weather will combine into one catastrophic superstorm known as a Geostorm.

If they're into disaster films or are fans of anyone in the cast they just might.
For destruction, action and violence.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
