Trying to cash in on the surprising enthusiasm for small-screen disaster flicks, CBS requires Brian Dennehy, Dianne Wiest, Randy Quaid, Nancy McKeon, and Thomas Gibson to fail to save Chicago from a super-storm and simultaneous power-grid collapse. Almost equally to blame are global warming and some energy-conglomerate greedheads. While not so wonderful to contemplate as the attack wolves in the deep-freeze Manhattan of The Day After Tomorrow, Category 6 nevertheless has a sort of raffish zombie charm, like the Chicago streets after the 1968 convention.
