How to take a stupid idea and make it progressively more moronic.
perhaps even worse than the first two
If "Leprechaun" 1 and 2 are clunky, why expect this one to be even as good? It isn't.
Leprechaun 3 continues in a big location, making it pretty fun. Las Vegas is a great setting for a killer leprechaun movie. It allows the film to play with themes such as greed and temptation in an appropriate setting. The leprechaun is kept busy for a while as we are introduced to other characters. The film conjures up some new mythology and magic, keeping it fresh if a little contradictory to the films before it. Now leprechauns are like werewolves, as our hero starts to turn into one after a nasty bite. The real highlight is a partnership that really should be remembered as one of the great buddy acts. A loan shark and his heavy share such chemistry and warmth it is genuinely funny and endearing. A great continuation, even if the familiar parts drag.
The Leprechaun (Warwick Davis) returns to find peoples' unlucky sides in Las Vegas. There are some funny deaths with a magician act, a sexy robot girl and a facelift operation. It's almost as fantasy as an Elm Street movie. I wish they showed some more famous landmarks of Vegas on our tour.
The only reason why I'm giving this movie 3.5 stars is because it was so damn entertaining! Really this movie should get 2 stars,but I couldnt help myself. The acting in this movie is soooo bad! The main dude in this is so horid, so much so that I was laughing my ass off! One redeming quality in this film is the eye candy in Lee Armstrong.There was this scene when we ALMOST see her boobs! Come on show us the good stuff,so yeah this movie teases us a bit.There was one scene of nudity that was quite comical. That scene of course was when the stripper came out of the tv set haha,so over the top this movie is. So bad,yet sooo funny! If you like cheesy horror films this is for you!
The end was hilarious! He went flying through the air (on fire) kicking his little legs. Oh my god, it was so funny.
A terrific plot, hilarious one-liners, and a leprechaun killer! What else could you possibly want from a horror/comedy? After the original, this is easily the best of the entire series. The deaths are also really good, and gory!
When I saw this I cannot believe somebody actually put this crap out for the public to view. The first 2 flims are great but after that it gets down right stupid.
This again was a great movie, all the " Leprechaun " films are well done and the lil bastard is really funny!
this movie sent the most chills down my spine and left me wonding who was going to live and who was going to die...
After getting the Leprechaun trilogy as one of my gifts for Christmas, I decided to watch them all right away, because I had been dying to view the first. Leprechaun 3 was just overall so much more enjoyable than I expected it to be. The cast and crew just had so much fun with all the material and since they knew they weren't going to make a star-studded masterpiece, they went with the best option and created a hilarious and exciting "camp gem", unlike the second one which took itself too seriously, and look how that turned out. Leprechaun 3 is just non-stop laugh out loud entertainment. With rhymes like the leprechaun makes in this one, you can't help but laugh your tail off at how cheesy and humorous the whole film is. Also, I guess since the acting wasn't as low as you can get in some movies of this caliver, it made the movie even more tolerable and likable, and since the leprechaun was more lovable, the film was more lovable. Plus, the main guy in this film is not too bad on the eyes, such as eye candy Jennifer Aniston in the first. Overall, there has got to be something anyone and everyone could like about this film. It deserves higher appreciation than the first and second put together for being so incredibly fun and humorous, like I have already mentioned, and is worthy of any positive reception it receives in fact, in honest my opinion.
Leprechaun 3 is just as bad, and poorly constructed as the first two entries. Honestly the series should have been only three films. Unfortunately, there would be three more stupid, pointless and absurd sequels in this series. After two films dealing with a murderous leprechaun you'd think that three films would be enough. This third entry in the series offers little entertainment. The film suffers from a poor cast, poor acting poor directing. The comedic elements don't work, and it makes an irritating comedy horror flick. This is an odd film that tries too hard at being an effective comedy horror film. The humour is so over the top it's not even funny, it's tiresome, and it falls apart quickly. The film tries to do too many things at once and it just doesn't work. By third sequel, the Leprechaun franchise was already showing signs of scrapping the bottom of the barrel. This film third entry doesn't do anything interesting. The ideas are poorly expressed and the film is a vehicle of mediocrity. An awful comedy horror film, Leprechaun 3 misses the mark, and it's just another sequel in a franchise that never should have been. I'm all for cheesy horror, but there's something about these films that don't do it. Leprechau8n 3 should have been the last in this series, and this is yet another sequel that is stupid, poorly thought, one that doesn't do anything to really entertain. Once the notion of the killer leprechaun wears off, and it does, you realize these films really are a waste of time. Third film is like all the others, boring, stupid and dull.
A third installment of the Leprechaun franchise was unnecessary to say the least. Our not so favorite little green guy is back with absolutely no explanation of how he is alive again or how he came to Las Vegas. There is an unexplained magical medallion in the mix that only adds confusion to the story. For the first time the series begins to incorporate the concept of granting wishes. It seems odd the wishes come from possessing a coin, rather than the leprechaun himself granting the wishes. Once again the acting is atrocious and the plot is flimsy. Luckily this is the first movie in the series that acknowledges that these are bad movies and comes off as more humorous than anything. I appreciated how they celebrated the cheesiness with more jokes and a lighter mood. Even though they embrace the humorous side this is still a poorly made movie and not a good investment of time.
Leprechaun goes to Las Vegas and does nothing new but makes this franchise get more and more pathetic. I'm sure that this could be appreciated in some entertaining fashion but I never dug this series aside from the first and even that is so-so.
Leprechaun 3 is more of the same and at this point has lost most of its muster. Warwick Davis stills portrays the evil leprechaun with gusto but the writing is cheesy and the rhythms forced. With nothing original to add to the story Leprechaun 3 isn't as good as the original but keeps the formula working and on the same par as the sequel.
