Very poor performance, but due to the death of Brandon is considered to be a cult.

Despite the standout performance of Brandon Lee, and the strange events of his death, this movie was like watching a movie made by a 90s grunge band. The most notable offensive monsters were the horrendous sfx and editing.

excellent movie, to bad he died for real in the movie.

It's incredible how they made this movie still so powerful and well structured even after the unfortunate death of Brandon Lee during the filming of this movie. It's got great action, but does the iconic status of how they still finished it given the circumstances and made a powerful movie about a vigilante living life by his own rules mean it's perfect? Noooo... It's pretty boring at some parts, to be honest and I feel most of the characters are pretty one dimensional, but it still is worth a watch at least once.

Loved this movie since it I first saw it in theaters! Brandon Lee was exceptional as the crow. I could accept sequels or spinoffs but this one needs to be left alone. Brandon's work deserves that.

On the plus side: it has a cool, dark atmosphere. Otherwise, it's heartwarmingly so-nineties, and gave some unintended laughs.

One of the best comic book to movie adaptations ever. I doubt they could ever make a better Crow movie than this. Brandon Lee would've been a huge star after this performance.

Visually gorgeous. The dramatic lighting and contrasts of darks and brights is everything you could ask for. A gleeful, menacing, and at times warm performance from Brandon Lee.

Riveting! A coup filled with love and death told marvelously darkened.

Director Alex Proyas (Knowing, Paradise Lost) puts together a tragic love story wonderfully shadowy with the son of Bruce Lee leading the cast to a classic that would generate more dead man walking films to come.

Synopsis: Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) is brutally murdered by a group of men for eviction circumstance. He is then brought back into the earthly world with the help of a black bird in taking revenge to those that did wrong doings.

I had the privilege to watch this film in theaters when it released in 1994 and it was an amazing experience to watch a film display with such sentiment and affection I could feel the hatred and sorrow with contentment closing in towards the ending credits.

Brandon Lee brings out the Raven in Draven with a performance that would have catapulted him to stardom with ease. The action is superb and the cast couldn't have gotten any better for the roles that needed to be played in this vengeful tale of despair. The cinematography could have been a bit more subtle, but the work they put washing out the colors made for a much darker film to view.

Had Iggy Pop played the role of T-Bird, the film would have possibly become a Masterpiece. For reasons unknown, he was unable to do so and would appear in the follow up title "The Crow: City of Angels".

Nevertheless, it's still a classic of its kind and will never be forgotten.

Silly and very '90s but is still a fun watch.

A revenge cult classic with Proyas hitting all the right technical notes and the late Brandon Lee owning the iconic vigilante role. Action packed driven by adequate pathos,‚?®well paced with enough grit and grime to see The Crow triumph.

This is like Bruce Lee meets The Joker (from Batman). This is a dark revenge movie, with some of the best cinematography and personality types of the time (1994). Ultimately, while ending this movie, the main actor dies in real life due to a gunshot. I highly recommend this movie. A+

The Crow is a moody, action-packed revenge flick that's also well shot and boasts a killer soundtrack.
