Jake Lawson (Gerard Butler) is a satellite designer who has recently been fired from his job and his younger brother Max (Jim Sturgess) has taken over. Jake was responsible for building a satellite program named Dutch Boy, which controlled the weather around the world.

Three years later, Dutch Boy has started malfunctioning. The system is causing deadly weather patterns, including deadly ice storms in Afghanistan and cyclones in India.

When the team realizes that Dutch Boy is causing these unexplained malfunctions, they decide to bring Jake back to fix the problem. Max has to join forces with Jake to stop Dutch Boy from wreaking havoc across the globe. Unfortunately, Dutch Boy isn't the only obstacle they will have to face.

  • 2 stars "I guess if you want to waste time, it was good to sit and eat popcorn. I was disappointed. It checked off all the boxes for predictability. It was trying to be too much of a mix of the Day After Tomorrow and a who-done-it? and a Sci-Fi/space film. Of course the dad was going to be sacrificing himself to save the planet, but of course that wouldn't actually happen and of course the current captain of the ship was going to be with him right at the moment she would be needed and in her space suit (which btw the clock was at like 2.5mins and he got his whole space suit on and still had 1.5mins to go?!?!?!?!) Of course we are led to believe the other brother's GF/Fiancee might be involved, funny how she is so stern on her secret service duties but the guys says I know thi sis asking too much to do "X" which is completely against any laws and she doesn't even put up an arguement and agrees to it...and does this a few times and each situation is worse than the last!!!!! Strong female character in only the role she played as a Secret Service Agent, otherwise what the bf says, she did without question. I'm sorry I don't see Gerard Butler character as the guy who designed the whole idea and knows it inside and out. He'd be the worlds smartest uber-genius. And really, 17 countries got together and built all that within how long??? Ya right. Some effects were not good. And some were, of course, ironic for the area they were happening...of course desert areas get flooded or instantly frozen and tripical places get the blazing sun."
