The Crow - Salvation Reviews
The movie also explores the concept of The Crow a little bit deeper to imply that coming back from the dead to go on a psychotic killing spree may not be such a great thing because a lot of people end up dead, and all of those people have family members. To that regard, the kill count is well in the double digits.
On top of the number of killings, the level of sadism reaches a new high, as a framed man who dies from electric chair comes back from the dead to take on an entire satanic police force. The electric chair is one of the most frightening ways to die, and I found that this movie used that much better than Wes Craven's horrible disappointment, Shocker.
The villain is also excellent: played by Fred Ward. He seems to really enjoy the role and it shows. In fact, there is a real chemistry between some of the actors. While it is clearly a lessor production with a less stellar cast than the original, I think fans of the first story will be pleasantly surprised by this.
Intent on avenging Lauren's death, Alex, as The Crow, finds himself locked into a deadly conspiracy which threatens Lauren's younger sister, Erin (Kirsten Dunst).
Alex, once the victim but now the hunter, races against time to uncover a city wide conspiracy of lethal corruption.
also stars Jodi Lynn O'Keefe, William Atherton, Fred Ward, Grant Shaud, David Stevens, Dale Midkiff and Walton Coggins.
