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.
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.
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…
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.
The end credits read, "No animals were harmed during the making of this film".
Yeah...no animals, just our lead actor. Oops.
Brandon Lee could have been great. He had charisma, acting talent and the physical attributes to have been an action star that would have cemented the legacy started by his father. His untimely death during filming cast a shadow over a film that should have led to brighter and bigger things.
Gothic horror, supernatural revenge flick or B-movie classic? Probably all of them. A film that tells the story of a murdered rock musician and his fiance that returns from the dead to avenge their deaths, this doffs it's hat to both Tim Burton and Ridley Scott. Stylized violence galore and with a penchant for exotic death scenes this was a movie with a dark edge and stunning visuals. Action…
Feels more and more dated, especially storytelling-wise. But I won't deny that it's still quite fun to watch the crow wreaking havoc.
Saw this in the theater introduced by Bai Ling. Great movie with a great soundtrack.
Watched in theaters last night at a screening that Bai Ling introduced. One of my favorite movies and always great to see on the big screen.
"The Crow" is one of those movies that I never get tired of. I have no idea how many times I've watched it but it never gets old.
The story follows Eric Draven as he returns from the grave to avenge the death of himself and his girlfriend one year after the fact. In a black, rainy, industrial city everything is controlled by gangs and thugs with Top Dollar running the show. Draven begins killing his way to the top through the seedy underbelly of a corrupt and dying city.
Though not without its flaws and marred by the on set death of Brandon Lee; "The Crow" blends horror and action together seamlessly. Paced perfectly; there's never a dull moment…
The story is about a man comes back to life after being brutally murdered to kill the people that murdered him and his fiance. This movie is awesome and dark as well. Brandon Lee role in this film reminds me of heath ledger role in the dark knight as the joker.
The Crow; what can I possibly say about it that hasn't already been said?
Well, I can say that I really enjoy this movie. It's dark, it's iconic, it doesn't take itself too seriously despite it's somber story of murder and revenge. It has a killer soundtrack. It's got Winston from Ghostbusters!
I know it is a tragic (possibly cursed) film as it's lead Brandon Lee was killed during production, but I don't dwell on that fact. It's sad that happened, but he did a great job as Eric Draven and I don't let the fact that he died affect my judgement of the movie. I like it regardless of this fact.
I know that Hollywood has been attempting a…
If you ever want to remember what the early nineties were like...
All elements of this film are seductive as hell, from Brandon Lee's pure charisma to heavy Goth visual to fluid camerawork to effective score. But it almost loses me completely in stretches where it attempts any long action scene, being repetitive and tedious, especially the big shootout near the end. That seems endless and is hard to make anything out. Alex Proyas would bring his great visual flair to a more worthy story in Dark City. Still, The Crow has its own kind of charm, whether in campy or horror mode, and glimpses of the love story coupled with Lee's performance gives the film's ending some real emotional weight.
Buena, óscura y morbosa.
