Storyline

He's been in the country side, he's been downtown, he's been to Las Vegas, he's even been in space, now that evil Leprechaun is in DA HOOD! Three young rap artists are looking for a break. They need money to buy some music equipment so they can go to Las Vegas and enter a contest. They meet up with a local pimp named Mack Daddy who agrees to "hook them up", but later declines. The rappers want to get even with him so one night they break into Mack's place and steal a lot of his jewelry, gold, and even the medallion from an ugly looking statue. Shouldn't have done that! Because without the medallion, the statue transforms into the Leprechaun, who goes on a killing spree looking for his missing gold, once again! And the song says it all, "there's nothing' scarier than a Lep' in the hood!" Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

Truly Awful
26 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In addition to being nearly openly racist and incredibly stupid, there is not a single thing about this movie that redeems it.

The only thing I can wonder is, did the people who cast "Star Trek:Enterprise" watch this turkey before casting Anthony Montgeomery? Because if they did, shame on them, the guy can't act, and it painfully obvious watching this turkey of a movie.

Ice T didn't go a bad job in this film, considering he had to keep a straight face reading his lines. Warwick Davis was cashing a paycheck. Can't blame him, it's not like he gets a lot of casting calls.

Again, how do movies like this even get made?
