Spellbreaker is the sequel to Leapin' Leprechauns!. The films were shot back-to-back in Romania. Some problems that compromised the original installment have been corrected, but new flaws arose, like a tremendous amount of leprechaun politics that will confuse young and mature audiences alike. Like Leapin’ Leprechauns!, this is a movie for children that doesn’t speak to them.
Perhaps the creators forgot what it is to be young. Kids need a simple story. They need color. They need movement. They certainly don’t need people fighting all the time and speaking in squeaky voices. This is an exhausting film to watch. It’s all over the place. It’s the kind of script that needs a storyboard and if there was a storyboard, then it needed a better one.
The boy, who wanders aimlessly for too long, seems unimpressed when he meets his first leprechaun. Each action is compartmentalized in such a way that we can feel every paragraph of the script. Either Ted Nicolaou isn’t owning his film, or someone’s breathing down his neck. Either way, what you end up with is a bunch of adults shouting and acting like fools for over an hour. It’s embarrassing.
