ReviewSource Variety
Review [Category] The sheer inanity of this monster-hurricane sequel to "Category 6: Day of Destruction" should quickly defuse concerns about the propriety of airing it, given its proximity to recent events. In fact, having the hero not only be the director of FEMA but the sexiest government official ever simply adds to the camp factor in this blustery two-parter, where Paris gets demolished before the opening credits and the science would be ridiculed at an "intelligent design" seminar. It's hard to fault CBS for dipping into the fertile disaster well again, but "Category 7" blows and then some...Although most of "Category 7" proves too silly to be offensive, the exaggerated destruction won't stop some conservatives from feeling slighted by the dismissive attitude toward evangelical preachers and propagandistic global-warming message. That said, Brolin is a bit of a hoot with his silvery mane and white suits, complete with his Reagan head bob...Ultimately, this is really just "The Weekend Before the Day After Tomorrow." Yet perhaps because of the cathartic release they provide, recent disaster epics have proved popular enough to beget more, with NBC's aftershock mini "10.5: Apocalypse" also due this season...Then again, the thirst for escapist mayhem is nothing new, and no one will confuse "Category 7" with CNN.

Brian Lowry, Variety [Apocalypse] As the ne'er-do-well egghead, Langella brings welcome vitality to the proceedings...
Dustin McNeill, DVDActive [Apocalypse] ...a miniseries that mixes realism and camp dialogue together to create a pretty fun experience.
Richard Scheib, The Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review [Category] ...Gershon gives a professional performance...[in a film that throws] in quite a degree of barbed political commentary.
