Did you like The Day After Tomorrow?

That’s the central question that needs to be asked to anyone thinking about watching Category 6: Day of Destruction.

That’s because Day of Destruction is a three-hours long, made-for-CBS movie that was produced simply because of that movie. It uses damn near every convention that Day After Tomorrow employed, and features really poor CGI effects to boot. So if you didn’t like The Day After Tomorrow, there’s no freakin’ way you’re going to have fun it. Hell, even if you did like Tomorrow, there’s a good chance you’ll dislike it.

But just I am one for plane hijacking films, I’m a sucker for destruction movies. I loved Day After Tomorrow, and similarly, I enjoyed Category 6.

Since this was a TV movie broadcasted over a two-night period, it’d be silly of me to try to explain the entire plot. With a TV movie comes a ton of characters to keep track of, which here include the retiring meteorology expert (Dennehy), the concerned journalist, the pregnant woman, the storm chaser (a fat and eccentric Quaid), and many more.

The story in a nutshell? An unheard of Category 6 hurricane is going to be created from two converging hurricanes, and Chicago is going to get f’d in the A. Throw in subplots about corruption in the electricity industry, a bank stand-off, and people stuck in an elevator, not to mention buildings and people getting flattened, and you’ve got Category 6: Day of Destruction.

I’m sure that most people will feel differently, but I had a helluva time watching this movie. It’s miles above the other disaster TV movie from last year, 10.5, as far as pure entertainment goes.

Day of Destruction trots out just enough clichés, tense moments, and laughable crap that it was impossible to dislike.
DVD: Just a trailer for the Sci-Fi miniseries Earthsea.
