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.

This is a terrific debut for Pope, and City of Angels is the perfect antidote to the increasingly fluffy Batman films.

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.

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.

Worst of the Crow franchise, which should have ended with Brandon Lee and the entertaining first film.

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?
