This movie has some VERY questionable casting choices, horrid dialogue, unintentionally hilarious scenes, bad science, evil government workers and everything else you'd want from a B-Disaster-Movie. I thought it was a hoot! :)

The end of daze - wow!

"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."
Category 6: The Year of Disasters

"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. It shows a lack of original thinking on the part of the writers, who should have gone to a few more creative writing courses before sitting down to write this movie. In addition, I felt that this movie was a little longer than it should have been. Hopefully, there'll be a little more of a waiting period before we see Category 8, which will be coming our way faster than we can turn off the power."
