Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
Real love is forever.
Exactly one year after young rock guitarist Eric Draven and his fiancée are brutally killed by a ruthless gang of criminals, Draven -- watched over by a hypnotic crow -- returns from the grave to exact revenge.
Romantic tragedy turned gothic vengeance flick! The Crow delivers visually stunning cinematography! Dark atmosphere dripping with an otherworldly stench of death!
They're all dead. They just don't know it yet.
The Crow is not an easy film to love and defend as great. Not because there's anything wrong with it, but because of the douchebags that praise the film for all the wrong reasons. They are the type of people that cause others to hate this film. They're also the type of people that make others think twice about praising the film in public for fear of being grouped in with them.
I'm talking about those Emo bastards that "love" the film because the character of Eric Draven is SO relatable to them. He witnesses his fiancée being gang raped, beaten to death and then he himself gets shot…
A very good atmospheric dark comic book film. It's got a horror aspect blended with thrills and action to make a solid revenge film that's different from the rest.
By the late 1990s, I hated The Crow, but not so much because of the movie itself, but because a few of the guys in my inner circle of high school friends worshipped Eric Draven. If they weren't listening to the soundtrack, they were dying their longer than usual hair - black, dressing like Eric, moping around cemeteries like they were reanimated vengeful fiances, and much to my embarrassment, at times, while we were in public...they were fully made up in Eric Draven facepaint. By this point I wanted nothing to do with The Crow and I haven't watched this movie since 1999 (at the latest).
Trying to forget all of that was pretty difficult as I found myself laughing…
The Crow is a dark/gothic take on the hero who is of supernatural origin. While some of the production values were cheap it’s still a memorable film. A film has to be more than special effects. This film has a brutal beginning with an overall theme of revenge. Brandon Lee’s final role was bittersweet since audiences were exposed to his phenomenal acting abilities. I still remember some of the lines from the movie even though it’s so old. “Mother is the name for God on the lips of all children.”
I’m not one of those people who wears black and dreams of razorblades. I enjoy a film for its emotional impact and that’s the center of the story. Our protagonist…
According to my parents, they ended up seeing this film on their Honeymoon. I don't know why, but it's kinda cool knowing I may have been "made" (gross) during a showing of one of the most badass films ever made.
Wonderful adaptation of J O' Barr's graphic novel of the same name
Deliciously dark and very sad,especially as Brandon Lee lost his life during filming :(
imho, the movie is aesthetically perfect for what it tries to make, a really good adaptation of a modern gothic love story.
Love it. Its everything I love about Sherlock Holmes and mysteries and Vincent Price all rolled into one. I think this is a SEVERELY under rated movie.
Watched it for the first time on Blu, forgot how great it is. There's something magical about Brandon Lee's performance that is half hammy-half dedication that is irresistible. The film personifies everything you remember about the 90's (grunge soundtracks, goofy leather outfits, cheesy puns) The Crow has it all! I will gladly rewatch this film every Devil's night because it is insanely fun and memorable.
FIRE IT UP! FIRE IT UP! FIRE IT UP!
Oops I watched it again two days later this will probably be happening a lot because maybe I'm obsessed with this movie? WHO CAN TELL.
Por coincidência resolvi assistir esse filme de novo na véspera do Halloween e a história também se passa nesse dia, nem lembrava disso.
Um filme bem legal e divertido apesar dos clichês e da fragilidade do roteiro, mas a ideia é bem interessante. Mas isso pensando nos dias de hoje, porque pra época ele foi bastante "inovador".
O elenco também é limitado, mas o carisma de Lee compensa. Pena que o ator tenha tido um final tão trágico de sua vida durante as filmagens.
The Crow isn't nearly as awesome as I thought it was when I was a kid, but it still has plenty to offer, not the least of which are some awesome sets and a killer soundtrack.
it can't rain all the time.
