Rish Outfield's reviews
It's been years since I saw this movie. I can really only tell you two things about it:
1) Warwick Davis is far from scary (he should stay on Endor). Everytime the Leprechaun leaped out, instead of screaming, his potential victims will say, "Oooh, it's Willow, how cute!"
2) This is your chance to see Jennifer Aniston's old nose! Besides that, I don't have much to say. Sorry.

The tyranist's thoughts
Anyone who attempts to take a beloved mythical character and turn it into a horror piece has quite a bit of work in front of them. It doesn't look like that work was really done in this case. This isn't really frightening and really isn't worth it. There are numerous little characteristics of Leprechauns that aren't mentioned again in the series. Not a single one of the main characters dies. And as ugly as the Leprechaun is, he just isn't scary.
