Review: LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS (2014)
What really sucks is how promising the movie started out -- a nice chase through a big grassy field. But after that, the movie turned in to the most stereotypical slasher you've ever seen. Four main characters. Smart couple, dumb couple. Prude couple, sexy couple. Really?
Let's go ahead and talk about the complete redesign of the Leprechaun, himself. I've never missed Warwick Davis' Leprechaun more than I do right now. Dylan Postl's Lep looks exactly like the Leprechaun in that SyFy movie LEPRECHAUN'S REVENGE.
Some reboots get it right, some get it wrong. This one definitely missed...big time. What kills me though is that there is still great interest in this franchise, so hopefully the producers decide to reboot this thing again...fast. And be sure to release many photos of the Lep to hopefully draw back the audience.
LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS tried, but failed. And speaking of ORIGINS...this wasn't even an origin story, so that's strike 2,578. This could have been a SyFy movie...still not sure it's not.
I usually encourage people to watch a movie for themselves before drawing a conclusion, but just do me a favor and skip this. Forget that even got made. Trust me.
This might be my shortest review ever, and I'm okay with this. I need to get this taste out of my mouth.
