(This review may contain spoilers).
This is another film I originally saw quite a long time ago. While it does borrow heavily from Romeo and Juliet, I think the movie is well-made and with an original twist on the old story.
I liked a lot of the characters in this movie. My favourites were probably Mickey and Sean. I thought that Mickey had a lot more depth to him as the movie went on.
On the other hand, I didn’t think Jessica had a lot of depth to her. There wasn’t enough detail about her character outside of the romance with Mickey. I would have liked her more if she’d been allowed to develop more through the course of the movie… and hadn’t come across as a two-dimensional character.
I enjoyed watching Jack’s interactions with Seamus. I thought there were some really amusing parts to them… though not as amusing as Seamus’ interactions with his wife. I really liked Mary. I would have liked to see more details about her and her relationship with Seamus. It was also pretty cool to see her bonding with one of the ‘enemy’ characters later on.
There were some really nice fantasy elements in this movie. I would have liked some more details about the different types of supernatural creatures there were, but what I did see, I liked.
I thought it was interesting to see the contrasts between the Trooper fairies and the Leprechauns. I liked the fact that they were rivals, but actually seemed quite similar under the surface.
I recognised quite a few of the actors in this movie. And there were a lot of comedy moments in this movie. I didn’t much like Kathleen at first, but she did grow on me as the movie went on. I also thought her brothers were amusing at times. I would have liked to see more depth to them.
There were a lot of sweet moments in this movie and I liked the different romances, even if I didn’t like Jessica as much as some of the other characters. There were also some really beautiful scenes in this… and I especially liked the music in this.
I did enjoy watching this movie and I would probably watch it again in the future.
