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

Memo to Edward R. Pressman: Gloomy Goth teens like the Romeo and Juliet stuff, not parental devotion from beyond the grave.

Stunningly awful.

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

Vincent Perez is game, but he--nor anyone involved in this sloppy production--can erase the fond memories of the late Brandon Lee.

| Original Score: 2/5

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.
February 27, 2001
Why didn't the producers save all the money they spent on these great sets and brilliant special effects for a script worthy of them?
| Original Score: 1.5/4

Little more than a subpar remake of the first outing.

January 1, 2000
It verges on the misanthropic and necrophiliac; more in love with the absence of characters, their demise, than with flesh and blood.
January 1, 2000
Despite poetic overtones, this film is a hack job--an overlit, underdirected, barely scripted longform music video celebrating violence and bastard amber gel.
January 1, 2000
A pseudo-spiritual rock video for the symbolically challenged.
January 1, 2000
What really stymies this sequel is the lack of the melancholic air of loss and mourning that bolstered the cartoon histrionics of the original.
January 1, 2000
This dark and brooding sequel is an absolute pain to watch.

Substitutes brutal violence and gore for character development, probably hoping audiences won't notice what a confusing nightmare this whole mess really is.
