  • Summary: This killer-storm disaster sequel to "Category 6: Day of Destruction" runs the risk of being insensitive (with footage of real-life killer storms and their aftermath still being shown daily on the news), but perhaps manages to avoid that label by being completely preposterous.
  • Genre(s): Action & Adventure

  1. Fans of this telefilm's predecessor... will probably enjoy this upped ante of a sequel, though it once again mixes spectacular effects with childish human melodrama.
  2. There's little point in critiquing the acting other than to say this isn't a production that will embellish anyone's list of credits. Nearly everyone here is a caricature trying to make the best of a miniseries that is all about the special effects.
  3. Accidentally ridiculous. [4 Nov 2005, p.69]

    The storms in this production have more personality than the characters who chase, study and prepare for them.

    "Category 7" blows and then some.
  6. To sit through these four hours is to deserve compensation.
  7. 0
    The miniseries is about as enjoyable as toenail fungus or that sickening commercial for its cure.
