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>

Goofs

If the Leprechaun was turned to stone in the 1970s and was not reverted to normal until present day, that would make the events of Leprechaun, Leprechaun 2, and Leprechaun 3 impossible, as the Leprechaun would still have been stone (this time line error does not affect the events depicted in Leprechaun 4: In Space, as that movie took place in the future).

Quotes

[first lines]
Leprechaun: Death to he who sets a Leprechaun free. Steal his gold, it will corrupt your soul, you see. For many a moon the legend has grown, death toll increases, solution unknown. Beware the evil wanderer in search of his loot, lest you suffer the wrath of his golden flute. Flee while you can, the future's not good- for no one is safe from a Lep in the Hood!

Fair little green man movie...
18 March 2007 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 3/17/2007 - 3 out of 10(Dir-Rob Spera): Fair little green man movie with him getting involved with rappers this time. Ice-T's character encounters the green guy in the 70's, steals his magic flute, keeps him entombed in stone by keeping an emblem around his neck and then goes on to fame and fortune. The movie then comes to the current day where a group of wanna-be rappers try to get on the good side of Ice-T's character but it doesn't happen. So instead, they try to steal his loot and unlock the evil Leprechaun by removing the emblem and they also steal the flute. The rest of the movie the rappers are on the run from both Ice-T and the Leprechaun and doing different things to try and elude them until they can make it to Las Vegas, where they hope to compete in a rap contest. The Leprechaun has a little more personality in this one and he's back to his rhyming one-liners but the movie doesn't deliver much in the fright area and there's no real lesson learned here either for the young rappers. So what we end up having is the green guy doing some killing, the rappers doing some killing, Ice-T doing some killing, and bits and pieces of rap music throughout as well. The final scene has Warwick Davis as the Leprechaun doing his own rap tune which is kind of a hoot and probably the best part of the movie, but we have to wait 90 minutes for this, though. The wait wasn't worth it.
