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
Although he has made a variety of many different films, Vincent Perez's portrayal of Ashe Corven still remains his most iconic role in his career. He once stated that even while still filming on set, he used the late Brandon Lee's character from the previous film as a reference in order to intensify his role. Fans of the franchise were pleased with his performance and made him a cult favorite. See more »
(at around 31 mins) When Sarah is talking to Noah in the tattoo parlor she is wearing one outfit but when Curve bangs on the door, she is wearing a different one. See more »
Are you okay?
It stings a little.
Well, that's why they call me the mistress of pain.

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 »
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.
