Trivia

Only film in the series not to star Warwick Davis in the title role. He says he has no clue as to why they didn't ask him to play the part, because he would've loved to do it. See more »

Goofs

When Sophie finds the Irish book about the leprechaun in the cellar she informs the others that 'Tuatha Dé Danann' means leprechaun. The Tuatha Dé Danann in Irish mythology were actually a tribe of kings and queens with supernatural powers that were worshiped as deities. See more »

Someone in charge, please read!
29 August 2014 | by (Tucson Az) – See all my reviews

I thought long and hard about adding this review... After all, I'd be adding nothing that others had not already said: no mythology, no fun, no seeing the creature, poor script, etc. I mean, it says "A horror icon is reborn", and even the title is misleading, "Leprechaun: Origins". With a name like that, you'd think it was a prequel...but nope, all you really get it a movie that feels like it began as a spec script and was slightly tweaked to try and fit the Leprechaun series...which it doesn't. What baffles me is that this is as far from a Leprechaun movie as you can get. No one really expected these movies to be scary, and a large part of their charm was the goofy nature of the films. That's what we wanted to see: a wisecracking midget that would just as soon kill you, and make fun while he did it.

So why am I writing this? My hope, dim as it may be, is that those in charge would read these reviews and think twice before "tweaking" something that didn't need it. There's obviously a desire from people to see these types of films, and there's nothing wrong with that. By changing the nature of the character from wisecracking villain to grunting animal you kill what made it fun in the first place. I honestly haven't been as confused or let down by a movie in a long time.

So there it is, my plea, sent to the Interwebs to anyone that can help.
