I thought this was a great movie but it did not get high, only middle ratings, last I checked a 5.2 on IMDb.
I felt the direction and composition was very well done. Camera shake was NOT THERE when it should not have been. It was used when it can effectively be used.
It brought us into another world like movies should do.
The concept is that the US Government and world governments created a main satellite control station in space with a network of satellites enveloping the globe that controlled weather. It’s systems became hijacked as can be expected in all good vs. evil movies, and the thrill of watching the players try to save earth from catastrophic weather systems CAUSED by the satellite weather control systems allowed for a lot of major destruction to occur while they worked feverishly to reboot the system.
A quick note, this movie was over the top at times with unbelievable scenes, yet in comparing this to San Andreas I felt that these were just a stretch into the creative view. In San Andreas so much of the destruction due to a major earthquake was 100% unbelievable because such damage is just impossible, as was the boat breezing through the debris fields effortlessly.
Here we are in space controlling the weather and when the evil doer recodes the system to cause catastropic weather it’s believable because we see cyclones and tidal waves that could happen.
Sure the instant freezing is a bit over the top, yet it’s actually possible if there were to be such a system as the temperature of space is negative 450 degrees below zero.
I call this a must see movie for a family or friends that can enjoy catastrophe movies to watch together and just have fun with it.
