When Alex runs along the overhead beam there are 10 or 15 cops firing at him. But all they manage to hit is a few of the lightbulbs on the underside of the beam, not the beam itself or the roof above it. See more »

If there was a wrong thing about this film, it was the fact that it did not go out into theaters. The Crow Salvation stars Eric Mabius as Alex Corvis, the totured soul who play the crow, Kiersten Dunst as Erin Randall, the sister of Alex's girlfriend, Jodie Lynn O'Keffe, who plays Alex's girlfriend Lauren Randall, and Fred Ward who plays the Captian of the police. The film's story centers on the murder of Alex's girlfriend for which he is accused of, and is eletrocuted on his 21st birthday. He is brought back to life by the mysterious powers of the Crow, and is guided by the crow to seek out the real killers of his beloved. The killers are crooked cops that run prostitution and drug rings out of a strip bar. However, Lauren's father is in on their scheme, and it ultimatly led to her death, and Alex's framming by the cops. This film delivers the goods of the first film in a new style. It is a murder mystery and action/horror piece rolled into one. It delivers a more non yellow colored film, unlike the Crow City of Angels. It is also full of action that keeps an excellent pace for the film. However the violence is very bizarre, and bloody for a crow film. The story lags with certain gaps about the villains, and the Captian of the police. His knowledge of the crow's power is only sketched at best. The crow character played by Eric Mabius is passionate and very well played out. Not like Brandon Lee, but still good. Kiersten Dunst is cheesy but good in the end. Fred Ward is excellent and ruthless! All in all a better the City of Angels film, but not better than the first. 3 stars out of 4!
