Leprechaun 2 (1994)
Not as good as some of the other "Leprechaun" movies, but better than the fourth and fifth
The plot is cheesy, but hey, the whole series is, so that's one element that hasn't changed. However, some of the acting has gotten worse. While Jennifer Aniston's character was likable by the end of the first film, you can't help but to hate Bridget (played by Shevonne Durkin) throughout this one due to a huge lack of talent. Cody is okay but Charlie Heath's acting can be rather pathetic at some points (ex: "I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE!").
Now here's the good news: Warwick Davis (the Leprechaun) appears more frequently than he does in the original and Warwick's acting is even better. The plot isn't very complicated but not as straight-forward as the first movie.
The Leprechaun has gone through some changes too. He is a lot less childlike, and, if possible, has become even more malevolent than before. Not only that, he gets drunk at a bar, something that obviously didn't happen in the first "Leprechaun".
This is even less scary than the first film, but the gore is still somewhat graphic at times and the kills are more creative.
Out of all six movies, I'd say this one is the fourth-best, third-worst.
MY RATING: 5.8/10
Not amazing, but remains a classic
The first film of the franchise, "Leprechaun" was released on January 1st, 1993. The storyline is a little silly, and visual effects aren't very good, but the acting is, for the most part, quite engaging. I will admit it wasn't perfect and could use some work, but it wasn't all that terrible, either. Warwick Davis (the Leprechaun) does a fantastic job of holding your attention; without him, the movie wouldn't have been the same at all.
This is my second-favourite film of the "Leprechaun" series. The plot is incredibly easy to follow--a homicidal leprechaun wants his gold back and will kill anyone who gets in his way. That simple. Though the Leprechaun is without a doubt the most entertaining character featured in the flick, Jennifer's Aniston's character, Tory Reding, has her moments, such as when she finally stops whining and starts toughening up, along with Alex Murphy, played by Robert Gorman, and his witty remarks throughout, not to mention being the one to defeat the Leprechaun at the end.
But I will be very honest: this is not a very frightening film. For those who are expecting some serious scares, this is not for you. The violence can be graphic, but those scenes are brief.
Overall, I enjoyed it. The only "Leprechaun" film better than this is the third one.
MY RATING: 6.4/10
