For those who appreciate finer movies

"I'm tired of all the senseless and downright mean Leprechaun bashing. This is a wonderful movie. It has everything that makes good horror flicks. Nudity? check. Decent Body Count? check. A manical villian with a good sense of humor? Double check. When the Leprechaun is reborn from a soldier's penis, you know this is going to be a rock'un sock'um movie.The sub-plots are well thought out, and the movie moves along at a breakneck pace when it needs to. The mad scientist who is all head and part washing machine is almost as evil as the Leprechaun himself. The heroine is a blond cutie who is in fact a 'biological engineer'. She doesn't go topless, buyt the monster rips her pants off in the end and all youcan say to yourself as she runs around in her leotard is "Damn! That's a close shave!"The Leprechaun is the real star though and he is here in all his splendor. He wants the princess (a blond bimbo who shows off her [***] for know reason during a speech that makes NO sense), his gold, and well...that's about it. You can't keep a good man down though. When you got a guy like Leprechaun on the screen pulling the strings, you know you're in for a [***] of a ride. Highly recommended."

"ohhhhhhh, now the frickin leprechaun is in space. oh, ok. how the crap did he get there. with no good acting and a surprisingly funny bit involving a lightsaber, which is the only good thing, this one is a total flop of a movie in a floppy franchise. you also get to see the leprechaun grow enormous then he checks out his huge sausauge. what a waste."
LAMErechaun a PG13 rated movie if theyd just cut 1 pethetic

"The first 3 Lep movies have been ok. But this one, oh man...
Leppy is for some reason living on another planet and he has kidnapped some kind of alien princess who he intends to marry to make himself king and then do away with her once he has the power. But marines come along and wreck Leps day when they blow him away and take his bride-to-be. Leppy regenerates on a space ship of the marines and a science team and starts killing them off in search of his bride-to-be and gold. The marines fight back, blah blah blah.
This movie sucks so badly on so many levels. Firstly the acting. Warrick Davis plays the character just as well as he always has, tho he's been given some really crappy lines to say. But he doesn't fit in well with the bad dialog and speech of the other zany characters. The German doctor is a combination of German stereotypes of a cross between Hitler and Siegfried of Get Smart with a lot of Corporal Clinger or whoever it was from that show. He is just an annoying voice and the actor even lets his English accent slip through quite often. The Marine captain is a joke gone wrong. You cant even laugh at how bad it is, it's just pathetically bad. The other actors are somewhat trying to act, but they're not going to have and future roles offered to them from this movie, thats for sure. I recognized one of them from Jason Takes Manhattan and he must be kicking himself he's been in two stinker horror flicks. The leading roles are a guy and a girl who you just don't care for and wont be admitting they did this movie when people ask them about themselves.
EFFECTS: The effects are terrible. There is no death scene worth looking at here, cause they are all cut away shadow kind of things to leave to your imagination, cause they think its better that way but really it's because they spent all there money on the crappy CGI effects they put in.
I wouldn't even say the special effects of this movie where up to children's television standards. They where REALLY bad effects. The opening scene of them landing on the planet and a thunderstorm is around them as it pans to the cave they are in is super-dooper-BAD effects. I guess in 1997 they could claim there CGI technology wasn't so good... but who are they kidding, these graphics looked knocked up in about 5 minutes. Not to forget pointing out the unnecessary nudity of a women who flashes her breasts (that aren't worth looking at) because on her planet that is how her people give you the there version of the "kiss of death" ... uh-huh, more like brainless producers adding something they THINK will take your mind off the bad acting going on.
Even at the end for absolutely no reason the heroine loses her pants and runs around in a one piece swimsuit... gimme a break, it's just PATHETIC to throw that in for the hell of it. it WONT attract ANYONE but a desperate 12 year old not old enough to by porn and who's parents have net nanny on there computer. it's so lame. IT DOESN'T ADD ANYTHING TO THE MOVIE it takes it away.
No bonus features, thank god. i wouldn't have watched them anyhow. Theres just the trailers of part 1, 2, 3 and 5. This is the worst in the Leprechaun series. This whole movie should have been cut down to an hour and been a TV episode of some lame-horror show they would put on somewhere. Not good enough for the twilight zone or Tales From The Crypt..hell, not even Freddy's nightmares! It wasn't scary and I wouldn't say there is any form of gore anywhere in the movie. maybe they could make it an episode of Goosebumps seeing as how PG rated the whole thing is without the nudity that should be cut out for being the most useless and pathetic scene in the whole film. THATS WHAT GAVE IT AN R-RATING...JUST THAT PATHETIC LITTLE UN-NEEDED SCENE!!!!!! If that scene gets cut, its PG13!
If any of the actors in this film ever caught a leprechaun, there first wish would be that this movie never got made or they just weren't in it.
I cant dismiss it as the worst thing I've ever seen tho, I didn't get tired and want to turn it off, i kept watching it, to see how bad and lame it would get. And it does become lamer and lamer as it goes.
I give it one and a half stars."
Arguably worse than "Plan 9"

"Not really, but it's close. This time, Willow the Leprachuan lands in space. The movie doesn't tell you why or how (and frankly, no one cares) and proceeds to be a low-budget horror which isn't scary, but funny, sometimes unintentionally but not often enough unintentionally enough to make it worth a bad movie fan's time. Most pathetic moment: the nude scene. Basically an alien takes her top off; "Look upon them as you ponder the remainders of your worthless little lives." or something to that effect. Justification: "When (this alien race) shows you their breasts, it's a death sentence." ugh. Watch for the Leprachuan (noted for being tiny) balloon up to about 50 feet at the climactic end. Hopefully this ended the series."
