“I want me Gold!” [Leprechaun]
on 19 November 2015
This hoky comic horror fantasy set holds 5 discs in slim-line cases.
Leprechaun 1: A cumudgenous Leprechaun [Warwick Davis] counts his gold but when he’s tricked out of it, he’ll trade his soul to get it back. 10 years later and new people move in and unwittingly release the little guy who wants the hidden gold back. Madcap gory fun. *****
L 2. A thousand years ago the leprechaun was cheated out of his bride to be, now he’s back to claim her descendant, but Bridget has a boyfriend, Cody who'll try to stop him. Less gore and more sitcom. ****
L3 When a Leprechaun is released in a Las Vegas pawnshop he soon goes in search of his gold, but he doesn't count on the greed he encounters. Slightly better than the second but more slapstick than anything else. ****
L4 Space marines go in pursuit of a leprechaun, but he wants to be a king and stows away on their spaceship. It’s like ‘Allo! Allo! mixed with ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Alien’, borrowing heavily from all. Silly fun but weak compared to the others and comes across as a bad episode of ‘Buck Rogers in the 25th Century’ but the last half hour does redeem it somewhat. ***
L5 So its almost a return to the Vegas story as the medallion gets removed from the Leprechaun who then seeks his gold in the ‘hood’ as a group of teens make off with the goodies. Lots of swearing, drugs and strife in the hood takes this away from the others reducing it to an unfriendly and not so funny ** let down. It’s basically gangsta hoodies with a leprechaun twist.
All the discs have the same 4 film trailers, play. Hard of hearing or subtitles on/off features. What started on a high note ends up on a terrible low.
