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.

Some believe that because of the tragic death of Brandon Lee, this movie is responsible for changing gun safety standards in film, ie. in action scenes, the gun is held off to the side and tricky camera angles are used when the weapon is aimed at a character to avoid misfiring or other horrific accidents.

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 »
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.

An absolutely beautiful film that everyone should see at least once.
This film is so amazing, I can't remember how many times I've seen it. You don't have to be interested in a particular genre of film to watch it, because there is something for everyone in this film. Romance, action, gory bits, humour, drama- you name it, The Crow has it. The tragic circumstances surrounding this film and Brandon Lee also add to it's allure.
Basically, it's about a rock star named Eric Draven, his fiancée Shelley Webster and the little girl they take care of, Sarah. When a ruthless gang of thugs viciously murder both Eric and Shelley on the night before their wedding, Eric comes back from the grave to avenge his fiancée's death by going after each member of the gang that killed her, and to say a final goodbye to Sarah.
An extremely moving film that I would recommend to anyone who has a heart.
