When the network of satellites designed to control the global climate starts to attack Earth, it's a race against the clock for its creator to uncover the real threat before a worldwide Geostorm wipes out everything and everyone.
Several cast and crew, even extras, noted that lead star/producer Gerard Butler did not appear to know many of his lines.
President Andrew Palma:
It's *GENOCIDE*, LEONARD!
Leonard Dekkom: *YOU SAY* Genocide! *I SAY* Pre-emtive First STRIKE!
The weather control web is presented as a spherical mesh surrounding the earth, with the space station, also in orbit, just above it, with little if any difference in orbital velocity. That part of the mesh, probably its equatorial region, would correctly remain in orbit. The mesh's rotational speed could be offset slightly from orbital speed and the difference in forces could be compensated for by the structural strength of the mesh. However, no matter how fast the mesh was spun, its spin poles would not be held at altitude by any centripetal force and would have to be supported above the earth only by the structural rigidity of the rest of the mesh. This is far, far beyond the strengths of any materials we know of.
Thunderclaps can be heard in the background of the opening logos, which lead to the opening scene of the film, in which a hurricane is approaching Shanghai.
