Those that know me, will tell you that I have a love for sci-fi natural disaster movies. When I heard about CAT.8, I was excited that another disaster flick was going to be on. I quickly DVR'd the movie, and watched it the next day.
Here is my review for this disaster flick:
Using a satellite dish, scientists, possibly the government, attempt to use the power of the sun to deflect NEO's from harming Earth, and also control global warming. However, something goes terribly wrong when the dish triggers a massive solar flare. The solar flare disintegrates the dish, causing it to enter the earth's atmosphere, along with the solar flare. The solar flare, causes massive earthquakes around the world. Fireballs burn towns and city landmarks, and planes begin to fall from the sky.
The solar flare causes disruptions in communication across the globe. As the solar flares continue, it also destroys a space station, which enters the earth's atmosphere, impacting Chicago, Illinois. a civilian, played by Matthew Modine, realizes that the government is hiding something, and races against time to solve the problem, and save the planet.
Scientists have a measurement scale to measure disasters. The scale numbers increase throughout the movie. Going from category 5 to category 8.
Things go from bad to worse, when the sun develops a sunspot, and sends radiation toward earth.
Can earth be saved?
Despite the fact that the movie had an interesting story concept, viewers may be distracted by occasionally shoddy camera techniques. The camera becomes a bit shaky. However, I found that the actors did a satisfactory job in this movie.
As a viewer, I give this TV movie a 6/10.
