Critic Reviews for Leprechaun 3
The directness with which this went to video is apparent in nearly every single element.
If "Leprechaun" 1 and 2 are clunky, why expect this one to be even as good? It isn't.
perhaps even worse than the first two
How to take a stupid idea and make it progressively more moronic.
Audience Reviews for Leprechaun 3
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.
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.
