“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

How bad is it? It's a pretty good film, with bad special effects. Should you see it? It's worth the time.
Roger Corman, knowing that Jurrasic Park was going to be released, made his own dinosaur movie and got it released before it, so every review that says they ripped it off is slightly wrong. They did however, steal the monster-bursting-from-stomach from "Alien" and not much of the film is original. The plot has a genetically engineered virus infecting chicken eggs, which causes women to give birth to dinosaur/human hybrids that will wipe out humanity as we know it. Everything else is by the numbers, but done fairly well, except the T. Rex is very cheap looking. The sequel is much higher budget and more competently done, but even more derivative; the third film is dull.
