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.
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.

Gen-X Horror: The Crow (1994)
Where my Todd Gaines challenge ends, my 2016 Hoop-Tober begins. What better than to do that than by watching The Crow, a dark-fantasy starring the late Brandon Lee. This was just incredible, it's everything I would want from a comic-book adaptation. It's dark, gritty, stylish, hard-hitting and action-packed from beginning to end.
Set in the ghastly underworld of Devil's Night, Lee is a rock musician named Eric Draven who along with his fiance Darla, is murdered in his apartment by a group of punks led by T-Bird, who works for big-time crime lord Top Dollar. 1 year later, and Eric rises from the dead as…
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.
THIS FILM SAYS "IT CANT RAIN ALL THE TIME" EVEN THOUGH IT ACTUALLY RAINS ALL THE TIME IN IT.
WHAT THE FUCK
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…
The look on T-bird's face as he realizes who Eric is + the music during the scene T-bird dies + the fire forming the symbol of the crow = 👌🏿
The best "dark" comic book movie.
Task #31. A film that takes place on Halloween but ISN'T in the Halloween franchise.
Can't rain all the time...
Before the visual styles of Nolan and Snyder, there was the crow, a movie that changed the style of genre filmmaking and set the standard for all action films to follow. That style which is created through breaktaking art direction, cinematography, and costume design alone make this film worth a watch, but the stakes never feel real as the film's lead character is literally invincible. The plot doesn't really go anywhere, which is why this film doesn't get a glowing reckon fathom from me, but Brandon Lee and the rest of the cast do a terrific job and I'd still recommend checking it out.
This is an Amazing film with a mesmerizing performance. The music was great, the visuals were appealing, and the acting was superb. Brandon Lee gives a phenomenal performance that's Oscar fucking worthy. It's a tragic what happened to him and he will always be missed. I'm sure I watched this film over 50 times and I'm positive that number will keep growing. I love the Dark and Gothic feel of this film. Everyone should at least see this movie once in their life time.
"Can't rain all the time"
Is it a good movie ? No.
Are the grimy, moody atmosphere along with the cheesy script and cliché characters a fun watch ? Hell yes.
A true artifact of the 90s.
Should be known for much more than its unfortunate legacy. The Crow is a fascinating showcase for Brandon Lee's talent in addition to some tremendous cinematography that predates Sin City and Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy by well-over a decade.

A visually and acoustically stimulating movie. I could clearly see where Heath Ledger got his inspiration for the Joker.
I love that we are following a rather evil character, who is out for revenge. Still, his actions are justified because he is hunting bad guys and he is nice to cats and kids (the old "save-the-cat" movie trick always works).
Also throughout the movie, I was wondering if it inspired the death-mental music or if the death-metal music inspired it?
It's a very dark movie but has great comical relief that is placed masterfully.
It's like Tim Burton and John Woo collaborated on John Wick.
So it's quite visually stunning, with some cool stylized action.
