Tammy, Tammy, Tammy, Tammy, Tammy,
This review is from: Leprechaun 3 (DVD)
"Leprechaun 3" is the second sequel in the series about a hideous little leprechaun who likes to kill those who take from his pot of gold. This one's set in Las Vegas and features a young dude who gets infected with the Leprechaun's green blood and starts to morph into a (taller) leprechaun himself.
Although "Leprechaun 3" plays it pretty straight it's nigh impossible to take seriously due to the cartooney leprechaun; consquently, the film is more comedy than horror. In fact, it's not horrifying at all. But it IS entertaining, and that's the name of the game.
The first two "Leprechaun" movies were mildly entertaining, but nothing special. "Leprechuan 3" makes up for that by somehow hitting all the right notes.
As my title blurb would suggest, "Leprechaun 3" is well worth watching or owning for the character of Tammy alone, played by the magnificent Lee Armstrong. It's great to have an intelligent, winsome female protagonist with actual and natural curves, rather than the usual too-thin blondes with chicken legs and fake breasts. Lee blows them all out of the water and her outfit here only accentuates her appeal.
Too bad she left acting behind the same year "Leprechaun 3" was released (1995), but at least we have this film to remember her awe-inspiring beauty.
The film runs 90 minutes.
GRADE: B (but Tammy/Lee Armstrong rates an A+++)
