Let’s be clear, this is not a film you bring your brains along with you to. If you can follow the simple instruction of leaving your brain at home before you watch this movie, you will enjoy yourself.
In the near future, when climate-controlling satellites malfunction and release small disaster-starting pods all over the world, Jake Lawson and his other fellow astronauts head into space to prevent the satellites from programming the small pods into creating a storm of epic proportions.
The action sequences were quite unbelievable especially if you catch it in IMAX 3D. I think the concept behind controlling the weather makes for a pretty interesting story line though quite unreal.
The portions that show how bad our Earth could get with Global Warming does make you worry and wish for a machine like The Dutch Boy.
Now I’m a huge Gerard Butler fan and I knew that in spite of the fact that his character is supposed to be some chief designer / engineer, this movie is just an excuse for another Gerard Butler action film. When he throws the first punch at some poor fella he didn’t like, you know shit was about to get real.
Ok so it doesn’t totally make sense and there are about a million plot holes. I can’t remember any of them because……sorry…..left my brain at home.
Rating 2.5 out of 5 Stars
Go if you’ve got nothing to do this weekend, it might actually turn out to be a pleasant surprise.
