Leprechaun movie review
1993’s Leprechaun may well be the movie from 1993 about stealing a pot of gold starring Jennifer Aniston and Warwick Davis in the title role. By that I mean this movie is novel because of its cast and the sheer wackiness that it exudes, but otherwise, it’s a below average flick.
Besides Rachel from Friends and Wicket from Return of the Jedi, we’re also blessed with Ken Olandt, who is best known to me as Jason Vigo on an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation called “Bloodlines,” in which he is rumored to be Captain Picard’s not known to exist son, Mark Holton (the guy who initially steals Pee-wee’s bike in Pee-wee’s Big Adventure as well as Chubby in the Teen Wolf movies) and Robert Hy Gorman, who did a lot of work as a kid, but I always remember him as the little boy who fell off the roof in Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead.
So… you know… strong cast!
For what this movie lacks in body count, it makes up with sheer silliness. Here’s everything you need to know about Leprechaun in less than 10 seconds.
If you’re willing to enjoy some cheap goofiness for 90 minutes, I strongly recommend Leprechaun. However, this movie includes zero scares, suspense and no nothing interesting in the effects department. (The practical stuff is fine but nothing especially cool, the digital stuff is pathetic.) Take it for what it is or skip it all together – only you can make the call!
