The Crow Reviews

Simply more of the same gritty superhero nonsense that appeals to depressed 15-year-old boys. And it's not done all that well, either.

I liked Lee in the title role. He just deserved to be in a better film.

This lurid thriller is long on nasty shocks but short on spontaneity, intelligence, and good acting.

[The] film is much more interesting visually than in story, which is merely a superficial excuse for the violent dispatching of bad guys.

A paper thin story supporting a lot of rain and moody lighting.

It succeeds in bringing O'Barr's comic-book vision to life, but there's little else going on behind the graphic razzle-dazzle and the moody, ominous soundtrack.

If The Crow is forgettable entertainment, it can stand as an eerie epitaph for an actor who looked like he was on the way to better things.

The Crow also runs a huge villain deficit.

A stylized revenge fantasy of dark beauty.

It is a stunning work of visual style - the best version of a comic book universe I've seen - and Brandon Lee clearly demonstrates in it that he might have become an action star, had he lived.

The Crow allows no room for the viewer to take a breath, as it blazes with breakneck speed from scene to scene.

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.

Follows an entirely predictable path, but does so with style and intensity.

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

A testament to the lost potential of the late Brandon Lee.

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

Certainly overwrought, but its images have a surprising durability.
