A Movie for St. Patrick's Day
18 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

Adrian Pasdar plays the world's most inept corporate troubleshooter as he gets sent to Ireland in this Hallmark Channel mashup of THE QUIET MAN and LOCAL HERO. His corporation wants to build a copper smelter. The local leprechaun certifier says there are leprechauns on the site and they clash and fall in love along the way.

There are, as I have indicated above, some issues with the way Pasdar's character is written early on, but director Kevin Connor handles the film lightly enough that by the time matters start to settle out it's all good, even the stock Oirish characters. Cinematographer Peter Robertson shoots the landscape in a handsome if nondescript fashion -- I can't tell if those woods are shot in Ireland or somewhere in Canada.
