Storyline

It was a normal night in Las Vegas, Nevada, all the lights were flashing brightly, until a man with one hand, one eye, and one leg walks into a pawn shop with a statue of a hideous looking Leprechaun. The owner claims it's a good luck charm. The statue also wore a medallion around it's neck. The careless pawn shop owner took off the medallion setting the Leprechaun free, along with his pot of gold that everyone wants and like before, he'll kill anyone who goes near it. Driving into town that night was a young man named Scott who was off to L.A. to go to school. Along the way he meets a sarcastic, but friendly, girl named Tammy. Scott tries gambling but loses everything, so he goes to the pawn shop to pawn his Rolex watch. At the shop, he finds the dead owner and one of Leprechaun's gold coins that grants a wish to its finder. Scott wishes for a winning streak, but what he does not know is that the casino is run by a crooked man who hates to lose. Also in the casino is an ignorant and ...

The Best and the Worst One so far
14 April 2004 | by alexduffy2000See all my reviews

"Leprechaun 3" is simultaneously better and worse than Lep 1 & 2. It pulls this off by have a terrible "Act One" (the first 45 minutes), but an entertaining "Act Two" (the last 45 minutes). I'm sorry, but with the exception of the Leprechaun character, Mark Jones cannot write convincing dialogue to save his life. I felt bad for actor John Gatins (playing Scott McCoy), who as the young college kid was saddled with some of the most unconvincing dialogue... well, ever. It was almost unwatchable, this "Act One". Then the story changes in "Act Two" with "Scott" getting infected with the Leprechaun's blood, and after that it's nothing but a good time.

One cool thing is that this time, Warwick Davis gets to speak nearly all of his dialogue in rhyme, and in "Act Two" he's downright funny at times. Davis really carries these films, without him they'd be unwatchable. With him, the Leprechaun has a destructive charm that's just fun to watch.
