Some time ago, Ashe Corven and his son Danny were killed when they stumbled across a pack of drug dealers murdering a fellow dealer. The dealers work for Los Angeles drug kingpin Judah Earl. Local tattoo artist Sarah, who has great knowledge of the crow legend because of what happened with her late friend Eric Draven, has been having dreams about Ashe and Danny. One night when a crow leads her to the scene of the murders of Ashe and Danny, Ashe appears before her. The crow has resurrected Ashe, so Ashe can go after Judah and his right hand man Curve. With the guidance of the crow, Ashe starts killing off Judah's men one by one, on his way to Judah. Written by

cast: Vincent Perez, Mia Kirshner, Richard Brooks, and Iggy Pop.
plot: Sarah (Mia Kirshner) is now all grown up and living in Los Angelus. She has dreams of another man returning from the dead with the powers of the crow. Enter Ashe (Vincent Perez), who is murdered along with his son by a group of thugs into drugs and the occult. He rises to seek revenge with the help of a mysterious crow and Sarah, who he has a psychic bond with.
the bad: Iggy Pop is not that great of an actor and the thugs don't have as much depth as the ones in the original.
the good: This is a sequel that has it's own story, a different revenge plot, different villains, and a slightly different atmosphere. People do not understand that City of Angels is a separate story and call it a disgrace to Brandon Lee.
This has an atmosphere of a post-apocalypse-like Los Angelus that shows a yellowish air, which is still pretty cool. The only connection this has to the first is the character Sarah (who I love) and how she still has Eric's tragedy mask, his cat, and his engagement ring. It was nice to see reference to Brandon Lee's last great character.
