    A powerful dark stylish visual feast, stunning, yet haunting gothic comic book adaptation, and one of the best ever made(comic book adaptations). A story about love and revenge. Brandon Lee son of Bruce Lee, got accidentally shot dead in filming this. the soundtrack, the visuals are awesome, atmosphere of the city is fantastic, great directing. Love the cheesy lines and the entertaining bad guys. one of my favorite Action films of all time. Join the Cult. 7 years 11 months ago

    Although this movie had cheesy moments, I think it was not due to Brandon's acting but to the script. Entertaining flick, with action and an unusual style. Rest In Peace Brandon 9 years 2 months ago

    Every superhero movie of the 90s looked like it was shot in Tim Burton's Gotham City. The Crow was no exception. But Alex Proyas' version is like the dark rock version of Gotham, with lots of imagery that could work as album cover art or rock video sequences. This is fitting, as James O'Barr's comic definitely takes its own cues from musicians like The Cure's Robert Smith. The story, I have to say, is slim. A man and his fiancée are killed - she is also raped, and while not graphic, the film returns to that again and again while you cringe - a year later, he returns as a supernatural avenger to kill them all. It goes pretty much where you think it will, and no, Brandon Lee's regrettable accidental death on set does not impact the film, in case you were wondering. Ultimately, it's watchable superhero/horror, with an interesting soundtrack and several memorable images and moments. But the overall design seems derivative and none of the performances really pop (maybe if Tony Todd had more to do). It'll always mean more to people who connect with the specific aesthetic, for the rest of us, it's good, but not awesome. 4 years 3 months ago
