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!

"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!

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 is such a great Sci-fi movie. There's a few clichés, such as the really bad man who is head of National Security...he was a little too evil for my taste. But every other aspect of this movie was phenomenal. I have seen it several times since buying it here last year. I highly recommend it.

I didn't realize this movie was so long when I bought it, so I actually spent two nights watching both parts. I thought it was awesome. If you are the kind of person who picks movies apart like saying " That's not right" or "That could never happen" this may not be the movie for you, but if you enjoy twists and turns and action, you should buy this movie.

I've given this movie five stars because it is so heroically bad that you just can't look away. True, I did have to run to the kitchen a few times to slam my head in the freezer door, but that aside, I laughed myself to the point of incontinence for most of the three hour running time.
Forget the astonishingly ridiculous 'science'. Dismiss the special effects that make the original Thunderbirds look cutting edge. You can even forgive the attempts at sort of acting. What cannot be overlooked, and the reason why I am sporting ten stitches in my head, is the script. It is so atrocious, so mind-numbingly dire, that it should be used to fight world terrorism. Fanatics the world over would be sent running after just five minutes of this utter bilge.
I forced myself to finish this movie as a bet with myself. I now feel dirty and stupider than I was three hours ago.
Highly recommended.

My son is a die hard sci fy natural disaster guy. He has aspengers and has loved these types of movies ever since he was young; so, we purchase A LOT Of these movies and I don't think there are too many that we don't own. And I look forward to more coming out. If you are into natural disaster movies, look into these ones.
