Better than The City of Angels (which wouldn't be hard), but only marginally so. Alas, the visually interesting nightmare landscape is gone, although the story a little less derivative. Eric Mabius is not trying to be Brandon Lee, but has very little character even so. Why, oh why, when someone makes a decently original movie, do we find the dsappointing sequels continue? Oh, of course, they need to nurse the cash cow into oblivion! Planet of the Apes, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Matrix, Highlander, Underworld (well, one sequel with Michael Sheen was good), etc. I guess one must just learn to live with disappointment.

A surprisingly good sequel. It was interesting to learn that the movie wasn't even technically finished when they released it! Some SFX had to be polished amongst other things. Eric Mabius was a great "Crow." He was insane and fun. Ashe from the second movie was depressed all the way through, relying on just one particular emotion. Draven in the original at least had a philosophical outlook on life about his character.

'Salvation' had the most original plot of the franchise, even more so than 'Wicked Prayer' which almost repeated the story of the first film. The bad guys are not as intimidating as others in the other movies but they still deserved everything they had coming to them.

Kirsten Dunst plays Erin, the sister of Corvis's dead fiance. She overacts here and is unfortunately not one of her finest performances but Fred Ward's presence makes up for that. Telling you what character he plays would be spoiling some mystery of the story, though.

There is a good blend of action and story in this one, and entertainment wise this one easily beats 'City of Angels.' It may be sacrilege to say, but I would even say that Eric Mabius's performance was on a par with Brandon Lee's. My apologies to those that give Lee the sympathy vote because of his death.

Give this one a watch.

Returning to basics, The Crow: Salvation delivers an entertaining thriller full of exciting action. In this installment, the Crow resurrects a wrongfully executed prisoner so that he can find the true killers of his girlfriend and avenge her. The storytelling is fairly good, and is full of intrigue and suspense. However, some of the directing is weak, and the actors aren't that charismatic. But, the action scenes are well stages and add a lot of energy to the film. Though it doesn't live up to the original, The Crow: Salvation is a solid revenge thriller that stays true to James O'Barr's vision.

Like what a lot of people said, it's better than the second and fourth one but nowhere near as awesome as the first.

I have to confess that I have not (yet) seen the original The Crow movie. The original have gotten quite good reviews in general. The Crow: Salvation is the third installment in the series and didn't fare as well with the critics. After seeing it I think the ratings are a bit unfair. To me it is a quite okay little horror movie. Seeing this one definitely makes me want to see the original. I quite like the basic story about Alex Corvis returning from the dead, with some handy supernatural healing abilities and a nice scary look, to avenge himself on the people that murdered his girlfriend and, indirectly, him as well. There are some cool scenes where the bad guys realize this is not the usual crackpot roaming around. That usually happens just before they die. Eric Mabius plays the the role of Alex Corvis / The Crow quite well in my opinion with a nice touch of insane look when dealing with the crooked coops. Sometimes it get's a bit weird and there's the odd illogical scene where people turn up in spots where there's no real explanation. Especially towards the end where the big bad guy and his girlfriend turns out to be some really weird psychos. At least one scene seemed to be shown out of order as well. You get to see the fake scares being prepared on a arm but the scene where they shoot the guy who's arm they use doesn't come until later in the movie. Bottom line, I quite liked the movie. A nice and not too silly horror/slasher movie with a nice creepy atmosphere and acceptable acting. Actually the acting is quite good for being a horror movie.
