It was alright as an action movie, but from a science perspective, there was SOOO much wrong (particularly with the time scale). Furthermore, the plot was very predictable. PS: weather is NOT a timed bomb.

Stupid movie, if the thing was going to blow up anyway why risk your life to turn it off? Stupid

Plot holes, cheesy scenarios, death and destruction, and Gerard Butler scowling and growling his way through the film abound in this disaster-fest from director Dean Devlin, who's had a hand in this sort of film on several occasions in the past. Abandon all logic, ye who enter here.

I could have done without the brothers backstory. The focus should have been on the action.

very straight to tv like. CGI was less then spectacular. Story took no time at all to develope any reason to care for any of the characters and the SCIENCE of it all is so way over the top even if you DID understand what genuises they are supposed to be you still wouldnt believe it.

Designed for a gullible audience. Mad Magazine has to make a spoof on this one!

Didn't need most of the domestic scenes, the younger brother's over acting, melting-street CGI from the 2009 John Cusack "2012" and fast-and-loose subplots. However, good entertaining for disaster movie fans and appreciated the root premise on climate change, a possible solution, heroic scientists and evil politicians. (The Asian actor Wu, Yanzu or Daniel Wu looked familiar. A little search noted that he was born in Berkeley, raised in Orinda California and starred in numerous Asian and Hollywood films.)

There were huge holes in both the plot and the science behind the weather control space station. Should I mention the clichés? I cringed to see these mostly good actors mouthing the lame dialogue, but it was entertaining in an action, edge of your seat thing. And it was pretty much what I expected. I have seen a whole lot worse from some supposedly better productions.

Could have been a good movie, the movie had many good actors, but the script was so bad..really bad..

Opening narrative:
Everyone was warned but no one listened. A rise in temperature... ocean patterns changed and ice caps melted. They called it extreme weather. They didn't know what "extreme" was. In the year of 2019... hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and droughts unleashed a wave of destruction upon our planet. We didn't just lose towns or beach fronts. We lost entire cities. The East River swallowed Lower Manhattan. A heatwave killed 2 million people in Madrid in just one day. But in that moment facing our own extinction it became clear that no single nation could solve this problem alone. The world came together as one. And we fought back. Scientists from 17 countries, led by the U.S. and China worked tirelessly not as representatives of their nations but of humanity.

A geostorm. Simultaneous catastrophic weather events triggered all over the globe. Once they pass the minimum threshold, the storms will start
causing new storms. Like a chain reaction until they merge together.

Think of it like I'm going on a vacation for a week or two.
-To a place 250 miles straight up? And negative 450 degrees? Some holiday.

SPOILER ALERT:
I've given you an opportunity, Mr. President. You should take it.
-An opportunity? ...Let him go...It's genocide, Leonard!
You say genocide, I say preemptive strike.
-You've lost your mind!
Tomorrow, the sun will rise, all our enemies will be gone. Wiped away as if
by the hand of God!
-Why would you do this?
Because no one else would. I'm turning the clock back to 1945... when America was a shining city on a hill... not just a bank disguised as a country.
-By playing God?
What the hell is Dutch Boy if not playing God? Ask Max, he knows. Science is all about playing God. Sometimes, God doesn't play so nice.
