Category 7: The End of the World Reviews

  • Sep 18, 2016

    Mediocre TV mini-series that gives you exactly what you'd expect and nothing more: serviceable acting, below par special effects and a thin story. It is watchable for what it is. Gina Gershon could entice me to watch just about anything.

    Average film with some irritating camera work. Watchable and somewhat enjoyable but long and predictable and stupid at times

    Meh. Weak TV movie sequel to "Category 6: Day of Destruction" has the same basic set up of a large cast of semi and formerly famous actors and actresses, including Gina Gershon, Shannen Doherty, Randy Quaid, Robert Wagner, Tom Skerritt, James Prolin and Swoosie Kurtz. The first TV movie had some pretense of trying to educate the audience, but this one is all disaster film destruction and doesn't really offer much more. Natural disasters never seemed so boring.

    Category 7 should have never been made. Director Dick Lowry should have realized before the project got green-lighted that there was no way with his budget that a movie of this scale could have been filmed without laughable CG and effects. Category 7 has some terrible acting (along with some decent efforts) but really becomes a struggle because of it enormous runtime and CG that was just plain bad. The story was pretty ridiculous too but that doesn't mean it should have been this bad.

    The ironic thing about a four movie disater pack full a bunch of miniseries is that they are all disaterous. Wether you like them or not Category 7 is a piece of shit with unlogical scenes, bullshit storytelling and plot holes so big it would take me a week to tell you them all. Lets keep this review under 10 years shall we? This is a sequel to another miniseries called Catagory 6. But there is a problem here. There is no such thing as a Category 7 storm. There are only five categories and thats it. So the filmmakers decided to screw accuracy and tell their epic tale of stupidity and damsels in distresses. The film opens up with a bunch of idiots we don't care about getting killed by a storm in paris. This leads to two storms coming towards the U.S. Probably two category 5 storm and I love how they explain it. "THIS ISNT A CATEGORY 6 STORM! ITS A.............................. CATEGORY 7 STORM! There are a huge ammount of plot holes like how can Randy Quaid's character survive being in a tornado with his car and how does cutting all the power off make the storm go away? Also, these kids get captured because of some religous bullshit. The characters are either brain dead retarded, damsels in distresses or just whiney kids. The acting is so awful Rod from Birdemic was better. The effects are either mediocre or just plain ridiculous. Scenes are illogical that Spock from Star Trek can point them all out. The editing is terrible and I mean terrible. They keep doing all these flashes to show a next scene but why can't they just cut to the next scene? None of the characters are loveable. They just tell everyone "SHUT UP! YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING!" or "YOUR FIREEEEEEEEED!" Unconvincing, Stupid, Illogical, Amazingly Bad. Category 7 is a disater. Literally. 19/100 D-

    Piece of junky claptrap is illogical even within the limited sphere of disaster movies. The only person to emerge with dignity intact is Swoosie Kurtz and only because she seems to recognize what a Velvetta fest this is and pitches her performance accordingly.

    Entertaining & Well-Made Sequel To Category 6, Category 7 Takes Place Just A Few Short Months After The Previous Mini-Series. This Time The Storm Reaches A Category 7 The Most Deadliest Storm Yet, Just Like The Previous One Though Two Storms Collide Over One City This Time It's Washington DC. Predictable But Enjoyable TV Thriller.

    Who *doesn't* want to see Randy Quaid as a storm chaser? How about James Brolin's electrocution while practicing his sermon? This film would be Oscar worthy if they eliminated the poisonous frogs, allowed Gina Gershon to do a pole dance at FEMA and gave more scenes to Sebastian Spence.
