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
The original script featured two of the villains from The Crow (1994), Grange and Top Dollar, resurrected to fight Ashe. David S. Goyer was unhappy about reviving Grange and Top Dollar and rewrote the script removing them entirely. See more »

There's a reason why you've been brought back, Ashe.
To find the people who did this to us. To make them pay.

The UK cinema version was cut by 14 secs and removes shots of Kali using a throwing star and a butterfly knife. Video and DVD releases feature the same cut print. See more »
A classic revenge story with a beautiful Aesthetic
It's true that all of the characters in this movie are fairly typical action movie type characters. Judah, the occultish, sadistic leader of the future underworld, Ash and his Son, the perfect family, etc. And yes, the film is Archetypal, a story that has been told and will be told again. This being said I think the script has a basic appeal and the visual aspect of this movie is stunning. Both the violence and the landscape are very stylish. Whether Ash is dropping one of the murderers out a building, onto a car, or in pursuit on a motorcycle and looking overhead, the films maintains a visual richness not found most films, and hardly ever found in most action features I'd give this film a 7.
