And I will say that the movie wasn't actually as bad as I had initially feared it to be. Sure, this wasn't by no means a milestone in cinematic history, but it was better than I had anticipated it.
Granted, the storyline told in the movie made little or no sense at all, and there were just so many plot holes throughout the course of the movie. Not to mention the stupidity of the actions performed by the characters in the movie. So yeah, in terms of a proper script and plot, then "Hatched" was a less than mediocre movie.
Visually then I found "Hatched" to actually be a surprise. The movie definitely had much nicer CGI renderings of the dinosaurs than I had thought it would have. But the CGI could only do so much for a movie that lacked a proper script and storyline.
The acting in the movie was a bit of a mixed bag of nuts so to speak. Some of the performers actually put on adequate performances with whatever little they had to work with, while others put on lukewarm or amateurish performances.
Directors Scott Jeffrey and Rebecca Matthews just didn't really manage to come up with an overwhelmingly interesting movie here. It felt like a "Jurassic Park" movie on a very, very tight budget. But hey, at least it wasn't as bad as the dinosaur movies that is churned out by The Asylum.
Ultimately then "Hatched" is a semi-watchable movie, albeit not an overly interesting or entertaining one. I am rating it a less than mediocre four out of ten stars. This is, however, not a movie that I will be returning to watch for a second time, nor is it one that I will run out and encourage people to rush in to watch.
