  • Summary: In a new miniseries sequel that has "disaster" written all over it, a series of super-sized seismic events (they're called "quake swarms," people) threatens not only the west coast--as in NBC's earlier "10.5"--but the entire United States and perhaps all of the western hemisphere.

    The disaster-movie clich├ęs pile up in 10.5 Apocalypse.
  2. 50
    The sheer brazenness of its borrowed trashiness makes it oddly watchable.
  3. "10.5: Apocalypse," is visually dazzling, relentlessly hysterical and also a sequel, which means that most viewers sitting down to watch it know what they're getting into. That should damp down any untoward expectations -- the appearance of a believable character, for instance, or piece of dialogue, neither of which, be assured, is to be found here.
  4. Everything about the [miniseries] is so lousy, it's difficult to pick just one failure. [19 May 2006, p.65]
  5. 12
    A laugh-out-loud disaster.
  6. 10
    The sheer cheesiness of it all is astounding, and it's bad cheese, not the campy variety that can offer guilty pleasures.
  7. Poorly acted, terribly written and plotted with audacious ridiculousness, "10.5: Apocalypse" is TV junk food that's neither tasty nor filling. It's just junk.
