The Crow Reviews

Alex Proyas's pulp revenge fantasy, based on a comic-book saga by James O'Barr, is dark, moody, and seductively overwrought; it's an amazingly pure expression of morbid adolescent romanticism.

It's a pleasure to welcome The Crow -- a bird of a very different feather.

As exploitation pictures go, I've seen a whole lot worse.

The Crow, starring the late Brandon Lee, is like one long fright night. Even though it was photographed in color, the edge-of-darkness atmosphere descends on the audience like a shroud.

The movie's central value and its most melancholy tone -- Lee's star presence. It's amazing and it's tragic.

What's scary about The Crow is the story and the style itself: American Gothic, Poe-haunted nightmare, translated to the age of cyberpunk science fiction, revenge movies and outlaw rock 'n' roll, all set in a hideously decaying, crime-ridden urban hell.

The Crow is a visually immersive, emotionally wrought comic adaptation and one of the best gothic tales ever made.

Stronger visually than thematically, this romantic film noir is utterly seductive

[Features] a heartfelt romantic core and some handsome, acrobatic action sequences that do justice to Lee's undoubted martial mastery.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A gorgeous black valentine that captures the essence of adolescent misery, coupled with a wildly romantic vision of the power of pure love to overcome all obstacles -- even the grave.

A seamless, pulsating, dazzlingly visual revenge fantasy that stands as one of the most effective live-actioners ever derived from a comic strip.

Visually, it's a treat; characterisation is sharp, particularly the nicely defined villains; and the action scenes, though soft-pedalled, still pack a satisfying crunch.
