Hysterical!

Seriously, this is the funniest movie I have ever seen. True, judging by the name alone you can tell it has to be pretty funny. If you haven't lost it by the end of the prologue, you have no sense of humor at all. I mean, the whole scene (not just the concealed items in the fro part) is very comically well done! The movie alone beats anything Robin Williams, Jim Carrey, Adam Sandler, or Chris Rock have ever done. This is the comedy that beats all comedies. It--- Huh? It's supposed to be a horror flick? Huh. You learn something new every day. Well, it's funny, and a fun way to spend a Friday Night with friends who do not take everything seriously.

Leprechaun 5, it's set in the Hood, take my word - it's no good!

On paper this sounds a good idea: Warwick Davis, despite his dubious Irish accent, is very entertaining as the witty, deadly Leprechaun, and I love hip-hop, I've seen Ice-T several times live here in the UK. But sadly this film, apart from a few moments, just doesn't work. The film feels flat, the gore & humour isn't on par with previous episodes, every other word is f*** or muthaf***er, it's too long (even at 90mins) & the Leprechaun rapping at the end is excruciatingly bad. Easily the worst of the first 5 films, next up is Leprechaun 6...

Rather fun entry with a few small problem

Hoping to break into the music business, a rap group inadvertently steals a magical flute from a mischievous leprechaun, reviving him in the process who sets out on a rampage to get it back and forcing them to stop him.

This one here wasn't that bad and had enough going for it to be entertaining. One of the better feature here comes from the absolutely cheesy and somewhat ridiculous storyline in here that really makes no sense why this plays out as it does. Transposing an Irish leprechaun into an urban, predominantly African-American neighborhood makes so little sense on the surface of it that there's a sense of cheesy giddiness at watching this go through the community which takes this one to a wholly different level than the other entries in the series. There's even more to like here with the film's few action set-pieces throughout here which gives this a nice mixture of cheesy action and great thrilling moments for a really enjoyable time here. The opening release of the creature down in the subway room as he kills his assistant before turning to him and gets stopped through circumstance gets this off to a fine start, the actual robbery here comes off in a fine matter with the resulting gunfight to get away being rather thrilling and the encounter in the church where they all stumble across each other and each group fights it out with each other in order to get away, all resulting in in some rather fun and engaging action here that manages to fall in line nicely with the rest of the franchise's action. Along with the nice blood and gore in the kills, these here are enough to make this one enjoyable enough to hold out over the few flaws. The film's biggest issue is the fact that there's a lot of time spent on integrating the leprechaun into this particular environment by overloading the rap genre in here to the point of getting irritating with all the different segments here that features show-stopping moments to get them performed. The incessant gangster talk and rap battles that constantly feature continuous allusions to that lifestyle which eats up so much time here that there's almost no screen-time for the leprechaun's antics. He hardly ever tricks people in what he does, appears more as a straightforward killer with supernatural powers and doesn't really do much here to suggest he was integral to the film when any supernatural avenger would've been inserted into the film without any difficulty. This here is the main issue with this one as there's some problems the film can't really recover from. Despite the few positives in here being quite good.

Rated R: Extreme Graphic Language, Graphic Violence and continuous drug use.
