1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By John S. Ryan on Jan. 3 2004
Format: DVD
In the history of screen adaptations of comic books, Alex Proyas's adaptation of James O'Barr's underground comic _The Crow_ is one of the finest. I like Marvel Comics a lot and I've enjoyed most of the recent adaptations of the Marvel catalogue. But in comics-to-screen-land, I have _three_ favorite Lees: Stan, Ang, and the late Brandon.
(Brandon Lee, as most visitors to this page will already know, died tragically as this film was being produced. That's a terrible loss and it adds an even darker edge to an already dark film.)
Alex Proyas, who would later give us the haunting noir-SF _Dark City_, here turns his directorial hand to bringing _The Crow_ to (heh heh) life. The film recalls all the best elements of Tim Burton's first _Batman_ film and, I think, outdoes its predecessor by quite a bit.
You probably already know the plot here. Rock musician Eric Draven (d'Raven; get it?) and his fiancee Shelly Webster are brutally murdered on Devil's Night (the night before Halloween). Exactly one year later, Draven returns temporarily to life in order to exact revenge on the thugs who murdered them. Which he does, very stylishly.
Dressed in Goth black and with his face painted white, he comes across as something like a vampire, something like a one-man combination of Batman and the Joker, and something like the old comic book hero the Spectre (remember? murdered policeman Jim Corrigan returned from the dead?). The whole thing is calculated, in the old Batman phrase, to strike terror into the hearts of evildoers, and so is Draven's remarkable healing ability: since his wounds close over just about as fast as they're formed, he's all but unstoppable.

One of the best movies I've seen in a while, full of action and characterization from a bygone age when that was key to entertainment instead of more explosions and less clothing. Already a strong movie, it becomes even more awesome when you read up on its history. Definitely worth the money.

Even better on Blu-Ray! Brandon Lee at his very best before his premature passing. His father would have been very proud!

i thought it all looked and felt very cool kind of like a gothic take on the comic book genre of movies. had its own personality and feel to it and held my attention the whole way through. i liked how he came out of the ground like a zombie and was a refreshing take on the revenge genre. good stuff.

If you believe, truly believe that spirits will carry a sole back when something so wrong has happened it needs to be corrected, then this is a film for you. Very good acting all the way around. A nice revenge film. I watch this movie at least a few times a year.

A great movie made even better by Brandon Lee's brilliant ( and ultimitely heart -breaking ) performance, this
Blu - ray looks much better then it did on DVD. I still found it hard to watch at times, the Crow character and what
happened to Brandon are so intertwined but I thought it was his best performance and deserves to be watched.

Excellent movie , very dark , RIP Brandon Lee.

Highlights: Brandon Lee's doomed performance, resonating dread and malice; astounding sets that possibly rank amongst the best in comic book adaptations (except, perhaps, the original Batman and Alex Proyas' later Dark City), non-stop full-throttle energy.
Lowpoints: Over-dramatized bits; lack of decent dialogue.
Conclusion: The Crow, famous for its protagonist's death during the shoot, is a startlingly uncompromising visual experience that will be cherished by fans of dark comic books, such as Spawn, The Punisher and even Alien. Watch it for its groundbreaking special effects, efficient rock soundtrack and possibly the most agreeably gothic atmosphere ever created in a film.
SEE THIS IF YOU LIKED: Spawn, Batman I, II, Dark City, Aliens.
DON'T SEE THIS IF YOU LIKED: Daredevil, Spiderman, or any other PG-13 atrocity out there.
