Pretty lame, but I can think of far worse ways to waste my time
11 April 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

After seeing Locusts out of curiosity, I have to say that I didn't find it great or terrible. My general reaction was that it had moments, but pretty lame on the whole. The scenery is great though, and the photography is not too shabby either. Lucy Lawless and Mike Farell try their best too, and both are decent. However, the script never feels as though it is naturally flowing and a lot of it sounds cheesy, and the story is unsurprising(the ending is one of those that you can smell a mile off), often ridiculous and the suspense factor is simply lacking. The characters are clichéd and don't have much personality, and while the acting isn't dire as such it is no great shakes either. The effects I have seen worse around, but they have a campy and artificial look to them that hinders seriously any scene that has them.

In conclusion, I can certainly think of worse movies I've seen but I can't say I recommend Locusts. 4/10 Bethany Cox
