CATEGORY 7: THE END OF THE WORLD
As a deadly Category 6 storm descends upon the Earth, unleashing violent winds, hurricane force pressure, and devastating tornadoes, officials scramble to pinpoint the cause. Though global warming is suspect, beautiful but discredited scientist Faith Clavell (Shannen Doherty, Mallrats, TV's Charmed) realizes that something else is triggering the extreme weather. Teaming up with storm chaser Tommy Tornado (Emmy® nominee Randy Quaid, Brokeback Mountain, Elvis) and Judith Carr (Gina Gershon, Sinatra, Face/Off), head of FEMA, Faith realizes they must enter the storm itself if they hope to stop it. While the country is at its most vulnerable, the government becomes aware that it is the target of a terrorist organization. Now, it's not only man against nature, but man against man as an intensified Category 7 approaches...

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.

I love a good disaster flick, but this one tasted like a child of Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth perspective. The weather CANNOT be controlled by turning off the electricity, and chunks of the mesosphere DO NOT fall from the sky. If it wasn't so politically charged with the nonsense coming from, sadly, a large chunk of the uneducated population in the world, I might have sat through the entire movie. As it was, I had a good book waiting for me.

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.
