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.
Brandon Lee is the fucking man.
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.
One of my favourite movies ever. So dark but so brilliant. Brandon Lee's career highlight and sadly his last. This movie is a must watch.
Forever enshrouded in an air of macabre, due to the death of star Brandon Lee during the filming of the movie and the whole premise, The Crow was a great success when first released, and has since maintained a loyal following over the past two decades. Some of that success, undoubtedly, stems from people who became curious about the movie after hearing of the fatal on-set accident, but I like to think that some, if not most, of it stems from the fact that it's a great movie, boosted by a charismatic lead turn from Lee, working at his very best.
Eric Draven (Lee) is a musician and a man very much in love with his fiance, Shelly (Sofia Shinas).…
Brandon Lee is the fucking man.
Revenge can take many forms. Sometimes it's the swing of a punch; a well aimed crack to silence the insult from an enemy's jaw. Sometimes it's the closed door; help withheld when it's needed most. And sometimes revenge takes the form of The Crow: a black-clad, invincible, guitar-slinging goth.
Come for the lipstick, stay for the matches and gasoline.
Dark, great cinematography, quite violent and with a good soundtrack. Too bad Brandon Lee died, because he would probably be a big star after this movie.
The dark atmosphere and the beautiful and sad theme song contributes to the dark tone of this comic book adaptation to the big screen.
I finally got around to watching this for the first time and I have to say I was a bit disappointed. Considering the film's reputation (and three sequels) I expected something better.
I wonder if the film's appeal has been enhanced due to the accidental on-set death of star (and Bruce's son) Brandon Lee; just as Paul Walker's death helped 'Furious 7' and Heath Ledger's death helped 'The Dark Knight'.
There is something of Lee's Crow in Ledger's Joker, with both of them running around town in make up, smashing stuff up and taking out criminals. However the tone here is a bit inconsistent and it might've been better if Lee was more of a tortured soul throughout.
Brandon Lee's final film and most fitting
A great performance from BL and the only negative being the subsequent Emo obsession with this film
In a nutshell it's a revenge/love story
The film that’s an entertaining vengeance story, with a gothic feel and yet underneath all that you can’t help but feel a hint of sadness over what could’ve been for the life of Brandon Lee, who tragically died during the production of The Crow. I like the feel of the sets, even if they would be somewhat dated now, it fits the tone from the start of what you’re going to get from the film, under the steady hands of Alex Proyas direction. The story as well is kept solid with it’s premise of Eric casting vengeance upon the gang responsible, whilst also having the character of Sarah (Rochelle Davis) especially to remind him of the man he once was…
Film 124 of Project365, a project in which I watch a new film every day for a year.
A well-conceptualized film that has proven to be a cult classic.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
