Even for teens hooked on the grandiloquence of death-metal masochism, the movie may seem closer to an endless Sunday in church.

Although the setting has moved from Detroit to LA, the stylised urban wasteland, morbid atmosphere and basic plot remain the same.

Fans of both O'Barr's source inspiration and Brandon Lee's initial embodiment may want to nit-pick, but this Crow has something to crow about.

The city of overacting, the city of bad writing and the city of truly dreadful sequels.

It verges on the misanthropic and necrophiliac; more in love with the absence of characters, their demise, than with flesh and blood.

Comes across as a scattershot video with corny and contrived action scenes.
