Storyline

Jimmy Cuervo is a down-on-his-luck ex-con living in a polluted mining town on a reservation that would run him out of town if not for the remainder of his probation. With his time nearly finished, he plans to start a new life with his girlfriend Lily , and leave the town for good. But Luc Crash and Lola Byrne head up a local gang of local Satanists who murder Jimmy and Lily in a brutally ritualistic slaying that they hope will conjure the rebirth of the Antichrist. When the legend of the Crow returns Jimmy from the dead, Jimmy heads out on a one-man path of vengeance that will lead him to El Nino, the leader of the gang that Luc and Lola are in.

What possessed him?!
17 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I adore the Crow franchise... I love all the movies and even the T.V show on occasion.

But lets face it, Wicked Prayer was the worst movie to date. The original was fantastic, as they always are, the second (City of Angels) was passable, but Vincent Perez was great as the Crow. Salvation, my second favourite, made use of some amazing young talent... But Wicked Prayer?! No. David Boreanez is a great actor, I think he did an amazing job as Angel in Buffy and Angel, Tara Reid is great in all her other movies... But so miscast in this it's untrue... The new crow, not too bad, but far too underplayed! Where's the angst? The special effects were lousy to say the least and it seemed the director was too interested I'm piling up the body count than making a genuine love/revenge story that the entire crow fiction centres upon.

I honestly have to steer people away, as only the true die-hard fans would want to see it, for the sake of saying they have seen it. Every one else would be put off the movies for good!
