For a TV movie, then "Locusts" wasn't too shabby. Sure it is a fairly generic jab at a genre that is flooded with mediocre and less than mediocre movies of the same type, and with only a handful of movies that really manages to distinguish themselves.
There isn't really anything new or innovating to be seen in "Locusts". The story is fairly standard and straight off the writing copy and paste board of these type of movies. A swarm of genetically altered insects, in this case locusts, are accidentally released into the wild, where they breed at an alarming speed, and soon become a threat to the fauna, flora and people alike. The swarms become a national threat in no time, and with time running out, scientists and military alike are trying to come up with a solution to deal with the marauding swarms of locusts.
The characters in the movie were well portrayed and had enough depth and personalities to become interesting. But truth be told, then I am sure that 95% of all people who acquire or watch this movie do so because of Lucy Lawless, just as I did. And although she is the main attraction in the movie, the other performances by most actors and actresses were good as well.
There is a good production value to the movie, and it is a nice addition to this particular genre; a fresh jab at the genre and nice to see something that didn't bear The Asylum or SyFy Channel logos, which tend to be common for this particular genre.
If you enjoy movies of this type, then "Locusts" is well worth giving a go. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and it is a good enough movie in overall.
