Review Leprechaun: Origins :
A crappy and highly unnecessary humor-free "reboot"
Going in to watch this movie the ratings were indeed alarming, at 3.3 one could hardly expect a masterpiece I knew that.
I did think that possibly the low ratings could be due to die hard fans of the leprechaun series being angry with the lack of Warwick Davis and the movie not staying true the story.
And while that is all true, the movie is just completely different in all aspects of the original franchise
Now, I'm not gonna say that the Leprechaun series is a classic, or even good for that matter, they kinda aren't, but one thing that they always manage to do is entertain… This one does not
And while the Leprechaun series playfully played with the silliness of the plot and at many times would be better viewed as a comedy than a horror, the whole comedy aspect is totally disregarded in this "reboot" it takes itself and it's characters way too seriously and that definitely stands in it's way from making this enjoyable
The leprechaun as a character is also completely changed, while Warwick Davis was a witty green faced leprechaun in the original movies, the new Leprechaun can't even speak and he looks more like an alien than the Leprechaun we know and love
He's also a lot taller than the original, the bio says he's 4.4 but he looks average-sized tbh in the movie
The first 45 minutes is bearable but the last 35 minutes is almost exclusive to the cast running back and forward in the woods
On top of that while it's supposed to take place in Ireland, it's filmed in Canada with American and Canadian actors with bad Irish accents
There's really not much good to say about this movie, if anything, even if you look beyond the fact that it's a reboot and watch it as a standalone movie it's still a crappy movie
