5.0 out of 5 starsTerrific film with plenty of energy and action!July 16 2013
By Dee J. - Published on Amazon.com
"Cat. 8" is a film that would have done well at the theater, with all of its action and energy! Matthew Modine is well cast as the physicist who can save the world and I enjoyed Ted Whittall playing the "evil" Secretary of Defense with just enough meanness!
The explosions and devastation are kept to a minimum for this type of disaster film and though not everything is scientifically credible (getting a special light ray to our Sun would take more than a few seconds - LOL!), just pass on the inaccuracies and enjoy a wonderful three-hour, two-part presentation perfect for the entire family!

4.0 out of 5 starsFun to WatchOct. 30 2013
By Margaret C - Published on Amazon.com
I totally enjoy this type of movie, and this one was no exception. The only reason it didn't get a 5 was that there are some logical holes in the science. But I really like it!
It's refreshing to have a "category #" movie that's not about hurricanes, tornadoes or earthquakes. Those are cool also, but at least this one is different. Also, it's a long movie with two parts - I really liked that!

This movie seemed to have a more "plausible" plot line than most. I did enjoy the supposed "science" behind it all.
