Little more than a subpar remake of the first outing.

I highly recommend watching the original, instead of this dud.

The city of overacting, the city of bad writing and the city of truly dreadful sequels.

More than anything I've seen from Hollywood lately, City of Angels smacks baldly of product -- it's a movie with a lousy script but a great look.

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?

Keith Simanton
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.
Susan Lambert
Boxoffice Magazine
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.
Adam Smith
Empire Magazine
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.
Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle
January 1, 2000
Suffice to say, when people think of the moribund, brooding Eric Draven, they think of Brandon Lee, and this sequel isn't going to change that one iota.

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