The greatest breakthrough in global defense research becomes the greatest weapon known to man and the irreversible catalyst in bringing about Armageddon. After a government experiment to harness endless energy from the sun goes terribly wrong, it's only a matter of hours before the Earth's atmosphere will be ignited. As chaos reigns across the globe, as government officials relinquish all hope, the countdown to the end of the world begins and it's up to one man, to try and save humanity.

"Cat. 8" is a film that would have done well at the theater, with all of its action and energy! Matthew Modine is well cast as the physicist who can save the world and I enjoyed Ted Whittall playing the "evil" Secretary of Defense with just enough meanness!

The explosions and devastation are kept to a minimum for this type of disaster film and though not everything is scientifically credible (getting a special light ray to our Sun would take more than a few seconds - LOL!), just pass on the inaccuracies and enjoy a wonderful three-hour, two-part presentation perfect for the entire family!

I totally enjoy this type of movie, and this one was no exception. The only reason it didn't get a 5 was that there are some logical holes in the science. But I really like it!

It's refreshing to have a "category #" movie that's not about hurricanes, tornadoes or earthquakes. Those are cool also, but at least this one is different. Also, it's a long movie with two parts - I really liked that!

Why 5 *'s? Easy, I really liked it. The soldiers in these e movies look so fake so often that as one of them by proxy, it AlWAYS detracts from the story seeing stupid stuff (iv's the wrong direction, uniforms Inappropriate for the mission, silly acting). But in this movies, it got almost everything right. Restarting the core was NOT explained well, but then I'm a scienc geek and scifi writer. To not detract from the movies plot, the answer is that there was SO MUCH ENERGY INJECTED INTO THE CORE, IT DID WHAT IT DID. The only way to fix it is to light the proverbial tipping point fuse. The story and acting was above par, the girls were MERCIFULLY NOT PORTRAYED AS WIMPS. That alone bought me the movie. I ordered the bluray as I liked it that much... Oh no pirate bay here: Netflix and I add to my collection (over 600 now) movies worth it. Eta here in three days... So, if you like these movies, you will be very happy with it. I hope a sequel happens... Story plot would need to be good, but the cast did really well and got along great. The soldiers acted like such without the stupid cheesy stuff I really dislike. The sneaky bast***s are sneaky and slick! the supporting casts all acted pretty natural. So the whole palate was represented. Well done! Get it.

This movie seemed to have a more "plausible" plot line than most. I did enjoy the supposed "science" behind it all.

Love Matthew Modine. Story line a little over used, but good action.
