Storyline

A poetic guitarist Eric Draven is brought back to life by a crow a year after he and his fiancée are murdered. The crow guides him through the land of the living, and leads him to his killers: knife thrower Tin-tin, drugetic Funboy, car buff T-Bird, and the unsophisticated Skank. One by one, Eric gives these thugs a taste of their own medicine. However their leader Top-Dollar, a world-class crime lord who will dispatch his enemies with a Japanese sword and joke about it later, will soon learn the legend of the crow and the secret to the vigilante's invincibility. Written by Don Hoffman

Did You Know?

Trivia

In the scene where T-Bird, Fun Boy, Tin-Tin and Skank destroy the arcade, T-Bird says, "You know, Lake Erie actually caught on fire once from all the crap floating around in it. I wish I could've seen that." Something like this did actually happen, but it wasn't Lake Erie, it was the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, Ohio (which feeds into Lake Erie). See more »

Goofs

In the flashback showing how Eric died he's stabbed as soon as he walks in the door, then shot twice (we hear 2 gunshots), and finally thrown backward through a window. As he's putting on his makeup the lightning flashes and 5 bullet wounds can be seen in his back, but moments later when he puts on his shirt there are only 3 holes in his back. When he turns around in addition to the stab wound on the right side of his abdomen there are various other cuts and wounds on his left side. Since he went through the window backward and landed on broken glass the cuts should be on and all over his back (there are none) not on his abdomen (where there are several.) See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Sarah: [voiceover] People once believed that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes, something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can't rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes, the crow can bring that soul back to put the wrong things right.

User Reviews

There must be an angel ...
23 August 1999 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I approached this film after reading the hype and controversy surrounding its making and release, not really expecting very much. Surprised to find it an intelligent, beautifully-filmed, engrossing and touching thriller. I'd recommend it to anyone who has a fondness for weird gothic mythological stories. I didn't find the horror aspect overdone - in fact it was believable, and the script was superior to other films of this genre I've seen. As for Brandon Lee, this really was a superb performance and it is a terrible tragedy that his life ended so abruptly. This film is a fitting memorial to what could have become a major star.
