Someone tell me this is some twisted nightmare!
12 December 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I'm one of those people who really enjoy schlocky B-movies (I thought Category 6 was a good film) but this is an insult.

For a start, the movie grinds to a halt in the middle and features 10 minutes of nonstop riot footage.

An infinite number of interesting subplots and ideas are thrown out, and it really feels like the production ran out of money at the end! Watch it, as soon as the jet takes off, the money runs out.

The plot is absurd, and not good-absurd either. It's BAD-absurd!! The characters make bad decisions just to build some suspense, for example: if your house is overrun by bugs, lock yourself in the closet and wait in there for the bugs to come in and bite you. The same shot of the sun is repeated at least 15 times, and "deadly atmospheric firestorms" are little more than (over)actors writhing in bright light.
