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…
Skin deep. Not nearly as intense or thrilling as it tries to be.
After coming back from the dead, Eric returns to avenge his late girlfriend and help the people he cared about. Highly recommended.
Really not my thing.
The Crow feels like a movie made for teenage boys who write angry poetry, shop at Hot Topic and harbor revenge fantasies. The villains are all edgelord douchebags of the highest order, the protagonist is a joker-looking dude with a dead wife he must avenge and the city everyone lives in is like Gotham mixed with the setting of Se7en (I know it came after this). Throw in a metal soundtrack and some vaguely explored mythology and you've got The Crow.
I appreciate the production design and the noir-ish cinematography, but the action editing is occasionally clumsy and the script is simplistic. Character development is limited and the film's ultimate message is cliched. It goes without…
A glorious combination of cheesy 80s action movie and gothic fever dream.
Production design and cinematography is an A+.
O clima e visual sombrios, a trilha sonora e a forma como as câmeras se movimentam garantem um charme bastante singular ao filme e são, portanto, as características que mais me marcaram nessa obra, desde que vi há muito tempo na TV Aberta. Quanto à história, um ponto forte é independência das explicações de "porque disso" e "porque daquilo". Esse desprendimento corrobora para o mistério. Mesmo assim é um filme bem simples e direto, o que é bom mas me faz pensar em coisas como "e se focassem um pouco mais na mente do Eric Draven?".
Por ser simples, sombrio e ter faixas de bandas como The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Stone Temple Pilots, The Jesus and Mary Chain entre…
Sad about Brandon Lee. He would have been a cool star. I hadn't seen this movie since childhood, but I can see it had a lasting impression on a lot of people, clothes-wise. Very heavy action and lots of gunfights. I can't say that I was blown away by the plot or compelled by the characters, but the setting and decorations seem painstakingly put together.
Does anyone else find it ironic Brandon Lee fires a gun with foreign objects in the barrel?
entertaining if a little too 80s for a film made in 94
Solo volver a ver la escena del maquillaje y the cure de fondo... se me pone lanpiel de gallina. La pelicula tiene sus miserias: el villano es de broma absoluto, el montaje es bastante flojete, pero da igual, pelicula absolutamenre generacional para muchos de nosotros.
Nota: bluray editado por inopia films a ¿1080i? En serio no hay un master mejor?
yep, this is sort of a watchlist; not immediate or anything, just some movies I hope to see before I…
Exactly what it says, here are 100 (and more) people who made films but died far too young.
