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.
A recent LB review gave The Crow half a star and equated it to raver pants, oh the indignity! I was rightly outranged by the suggestion that this movie wasn't the timeless classic I remembered from my teens.
I will now locate this review and eat my metaphorical hat by reluctantly awarding a retrospective 'like'.
While not nearly as bad as that chap made out, the nineties nostalgia hit isn't enough to hide the fact that, in 2015, The Crow is simply not particularly entertaining. Its many problems; pompous dialogue, grimy colour scheme, endless strobe lighting and lack of decent action is offset by the excellent band of supporting character actors and cool grungy tunes. Brandon is a good choice…
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.
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…
I really wanted to like it, but I didn't care about any of the characters at all, so I didn't enjoy the movie as much as I probably could have. My sister actually wanted to turn it off halfway through 'cause she hated it lol.
A bit of a wild ramble, kind of like Jarmush's Ghost Dog. I don't know if the film would get as much recognition if Brandon Lee hadn't died in the filming of it.
The Crow is a brilliantly dark, and well executed 90s thriller/horror/suspense film, the likes of which seemed a bit ahead of its time. Borrowing from previous comic based movies like Burton's Batman movies and Raimi's Darkman, The Crow is not afraid to let it's lead character be dark and brooding.
Its amazing, watching this movie almost 20 years since its release, and seeing how movie making has changed over the decades. A reboot ( like most other hit franchises from the past are being "blessed" with) has been in the pipeline for quite some time, but I doubt it will be able to fully capture the style and persona of this film. It will deffinately not get an R rating,…
The Crow is a noir-ish mishmash of violence and vengeance. Brandon Lee gave a decent performance, and it's a shame what happened to him. In the beginning, I was a tad confused, just since the movie starts and has no information on anything. But as the movie went on, I finally understood things, but it seemed to take forever to get to that point. I can see why this is a cult classic, but I don't necessarily think this will go down as a "classic" film. The Crow was a decent vengeance film but isn't spectacular.
βροχές και σκοτάδια και τσιτάτα
Its very of its time, but that doesn't make this gothic rock romance any less entertaining. Its a gorgeous and operatic film with a good performance by Lee.
This is a fantastic film that holds one of the saddest on set deaths, this movie is a cult classic and a personal favourite of mine. It's a story of revenge and proves that love carries over to the other side, and nothing can stop his revenge.
Enjoyable comic book film. Brandon Lee's death adds to the eeriness of the film.
It reminded me a bit of Darkman. Another great action movie with an anti hero.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
