BRAVE THE STORM.
In the near future, a system of satellites controls the global climate; after several serious, catastrophic accidents, the system’s creator (Gerard Butler) is sent to the space station to investigate. A 3D throwback to the disaster movies of the 1990s, directed by one of the men behind Independence Day (1996), but the efforts to save it after a troubled production history were for naught. We’ve seen all the disaster scenarios before, the acting is uninspired and the story ludicrous, turning into a silly whodunit.
2017-U.S. 109 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Dean Devlin. Cast: Gerard Butler (Jake Lawson), Jim Sturgess (Max Lawson), Abbie Cornish (Sarah Wilson), Ed Harris, Andy Garcia, Richard Schiff.
