When a system designed to prevent natural disasters goes awry, the whole world is put into danger!
To stop the planet becoming decimated by natural disasters, the world’s leaders come together and agree on a project to build a series of advanced technological satellites.
These satellites will be able to control the world’s weather ensuring the population of Earth remains safe.
But this is a Hollywood movie so you know what’s coming next! Yep, the satellites are malfunctioning and are causing the worst storms of different kinds the world has ever seen.
Gerard Butler stars as Jake, a scientist who, along with his brother, Max, played by Jim Sturgess, is tasked with solving the satellite program’s malfunction.
If the “end of the world” theme feels familiar then you may not be surprised to learn that this film is the directorial debut of Dean Devlin, the writer and producer of the Independence Day films.
I don’t know about you but as an ageing nerd, I think I’ve had enough of all these big “end of the world” spectacles. 2012, The Day After Tommorrow, haven’t we seen it all before?
