WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
A team of elite hackers organise a $600 million heist at a coastal US mint facility at the exact same time that a powerful Category 5 hurricane is set to strike. The only people standing in their way are Will (Kebbell), a meteorologist, a Treasury agent named Casey (Grace), and Will’s ex-Marine brother Breeze (Kwanten), who must not only survive the hurricane but must also thwart the team from committing the heist of the century…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Rob Cohen, the director of the original Fast & Furious movie as well as a load of other action movies, seems to have made his own version of Geostorm with this hybrid of a heist and disaster movie that looks just as delightfully silly.
