Storyline

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 Todd Baldridge

User Reviews

Blasphemous.
22 February 1999 | by simone-16See all my reviews

This movie was a dismal effort to live up to the high standards set by the cast and crew of The Crow. I felt this movie was a bad idea when I first heard that there would be a sequel to The Crow; it was stated by James O'Barr that The Crow was 'a complete story' - does this not imply that a sequel would be simply belittling The Crow?

Beyond the story (which is too pathetic a story to mention), the bad acting, and the obviously overdone effects, the idea of somebody trying to do better than Brandon Lee is atrocious.

Vincent Perez (aka "that french guy") sadly had no hope from the beginning. The Crow was Brandon's film - dedicated to the memory of Brandon Lee. It should have been left at that, instead of this pitiful attempt to better, or even equal, the stunning beauty of The Crow. A story such as this should be remembered as one of a kind, not 'watered down' with imitations.
