Product Description

The Ultimate Superstorm is Back -- And This Time it's Deadler...The hair-raising sequel to the highly-rated TV event, "Category 6: Day of Destruction".

Amazon.com

Who doesn't enjoy watching big things fall to pieces? Category 7: The End of the World wreaks havoc on the Eiffel Tower, Mt. Rushmore, the Pyramids, and a midwestern trailer park, among other things. More or less a sequel to Category 6: Day of Destruction (presumably the latest in a series that began with Category 1: Don't Forget Your Umbrella), Category 7 offers the reassuring sight of Gina Gershon, skilled with disasters like Showgirls, taking control of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Confronted with city-destroying weather, she calls in rebel meteorologist Ross Duffy (Cameron Daddo, star of such classics as Pterodactyl and Anthrax), who runs the Extreme Weather Lab and harbors theories that threaten the political status quo. Ross brings in Tommy Tornado (Randy Quaid, the sole returning actor from Category 6), Faith Clavell (Shannen Doherty, Charmed), and Col. Mike Davis (Tom Skerritt, Alien) to gather data...which isn't the most dramatic of activities (even when it involves souped-up cars and superjets), so the movie adds a subplot about a religious zealot (Nicholas Lea, The X-Files) who wants to unleash the plagues of Egypt so that everyone will realize it's the End of Days. What does it all add up to? A lot of over-the-top hooey (and that's not including the assorted family turmoils), but pretty entertaining nonetheless. It's like a lesser Michael Crichton novel: Take an inflammatory vaguely scientific premise, add two-dimensional characters, cheesy but spectacular effects, and a full-throttle if nonsensical plot, and presto! Over three hours of silly yet utterly watchable television. For added fun, drink a shot every time one character tells another "You're the most important person on the planet right now." --Bret Fetzer

I've always been open to watching these disaster movies. Volcano, Twister, Day of Tomorrow ... all good films in their own right, despite what the movie critics say about them.

Category 7: End of the World was a very entertaining movie. I think too many entertainment fans spend too much time over-analyzing movies that are made by the entertainment industry instead of enjoying it for what it is, quality entertainment. While I haven't seen the previous film, Category 6, I plan on purchasing the movie to see how this series started.

While it's not too impossible to believe, such events as what is seen in this film could very well become true. With the rising cost of oil and the fact that the greenhouse effect and global warming are impacting our enviropnment, this movie does have a very moral lesson to show anyone who watches this movie. We must protect our environment before it starts to react to our presence on this world.

It was refreshing to see Shannon Doherty and her authentic talent coming to the surface. She had been released from Beverly Hills 90210 and Charmed because of her attitude with producers and directors but it was refreshing to see her performing true to her nature and having a role that was written just for her. She is a wonderful actress and it's time more and more roles were written specifically for her. Randy Quaid is also the consummate actor who always seems to manage to steal every scene he's in.

But, I was disapponted that the US Government and the politicians that are portrayed in this movie seem content in facing the ultimate destruction of Mother Nature and protecting the interests of the large corporations, oil cartels and special interests instead of safeguarding the lives of the people.

After Hurricane Katrina, I was a little worried that our Federal Government might not be quite up to the task of saving me and my family should devastating floods threaten the foothills of Colorado where I live. But after watching this movie, I am breathing a lot easier. Evidently, FEMA has been handed over to a woman who certainly looks like she knows what she's doing. She also looks pretty hot. Plus, she has a team of cool cyber-scientists working for her, so what could be bad? Michael Crichton's neocon peanut gallery will be pleased to learn he was right about the global warming hoax he described in State of Fear. The actual cause of world-terminating weather is falling "chunks" of supercooled mesophere (or something like that) colliding with thermal updrafts caused by overworked blow dryers and iPod recharging stations. Once major cities are cooled down to 79.2 degrees, expect clear skies and smooth sailing. Then we can all pitch in to clean up the overturned SUVs, make a bunch of sandwiches, and get laid. Once again, the world is saved by can-do high-tech and the indomitable American spirit. Whew! What a cliff-hanger. But as in the real world, everything works out in the end. I found this an existentially powerful filmic experience.

This is the kind of movie to sit down and enjoy on a stormy day, or when you just don't feel like getting out and doing anything else. It is by no means, high art, but who cares?

Though the box says Randy Quade and Shannon Doherty are the stars, in reality, Gina Gershon is more the star here as well as Cameron Daddo. They get a lot more screen time. However, Quade and Doherty are the bigger stars, so they get top billing.

It was kind of eerie to see Randy Quade doing his kind of crazy bit here, as he seems to be doing it in real life right now. I sure hope whatever he's going through gets straightened out so he can get back to making movies, because he is one of those characters that I just love to see, especially in movies like this.

I won't even attempt to justify the science behind this movie. What's the point? It's not about that anyway. It's about a big disaster, and having fun surviving it. There is, of course, the evil Dick Cheney-like government character that tries to stop the heroes every step of the way. Then there is the seemingly evil bureaucrat that ends up helping them in the end.

The special effects are not too bad, though on the fringe of corny b-movie bad, but still what I would expect out of this type of movie.

As long as SyFy keeps pumping out movies like this every Saturday, I'll keep watching. Seeing as how their regular weekly fare is degenerating into things like wrestling, I'm starting to wonder if they are going to end up like MTV, which used to stand for Music Television, but hasn't had any music on it in several decades.

But I digress.

Category 7 is a great popcorn flick for a lazy Saturday afternoon. Just don't look too deeply into the science and you can have a lot of fun following the quirky characters and a multitude of sub-plots. Highly recommended.

Format: DVD
Disjointed, sloppy, and like the storms of the story, chaotic. There are far too many scene discontinuities, incomprehensible and underdeveloped story additions, and simply atrocious special effects - some of the worst ever filmed - to keep this film above average. Which is a shame considering the fairly impressive cast that includes Gina Gershon, Tom Skerritt, Kenneth Walsh, Shannen Doherty, Robert Wagner, and the always entertaining Randy Quaid.

Basically, a professor who is not Dennis Quaid has predictions about storms destroying the world. He's widely disregarded by smug politicians. Massive hurricanes collide to produce the heretofore unseen. Storm chasers who are not Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton shoot rockets into city-destroying twisters to collect data. Tom Skerritt mails it in as a jet fighter pilot who flies into tornadoes; it's essentially his role from Top Gun, but older. Meanwhile, Gina Gershon is completely overwhelmed by the role and responsibilities of FEMA director Judith Carr.

Perhaps the best way to describe this movie is with the sad tale of Kenneth Walsh. In The Day After Tomorrow he is the Vice President and ignored advice that could have saved millions of lives; in this movie he's Chief of Staff, and he ignored the advice again. `Nuf said.

In every possible way this movie is a generic rip-off, and there are even a few poorly done reenactments from scenes in the original; except, in this one, the Statue of Liberty is plastic and the flipping cars are of the Matchbox variety. Some of the hurricane footage is less believable than footage from the Wizard of Oz. To make matters worse, some stock footage is blatantly used twice, a slap in the face to any intelligent viewer.

Any subtitles?
As a French buyer, I am positive in the fact that there are no subtitles of any kind (English, Spanish or French) in this bluray serie. It's the same thing for Apocalypse 10.5.

But the sound of visual effects is good : it's a compensation.
