A bit hypocritical
3 October 2002 | by Gags97See all my reviews

I find it hard to root for the "hero" of this picture when he kills innocent people just to get to his targets--he blows up a police chopper, and later guns down an assortment of cops in a shootout. Granted, the cops in the shootout scene were more than likely corrupt, but it is never explained otherwise.

Perhaps this film was originally intended to explore the effects of revenge (ala the original Death Wish) on intended and unintended recipients as well as the deliverer. The film certainly blurs the line between good and evil with themes such as police corruption, crooked politics, and public bloodlust, giving me the impression that there was a missed opportunity to make this film a much more fulfilling, thought-provoking experience. However, they stick to standard formula and actually play him up as a hero while he runs out into the night slaughtering the innocents right along with the guilty. Is something missing here or are we supposed to accept the fact that it's all justifiable because of what happened to him?

Apparently, this also left a bad taste in James O'Barr's mouth, as he has pretty much disregarded this installment of the series. I can see why, since the concept of justice, which I believe is central to the story of the Crow, goes straight down the toilet. Here you have a character whine about justice for him and his loved one, yet he kills more innocent people (with loved ones who will mourn them) than the bad guys in the film do! So much for that. Just as City of Angels was intended to be a tragic love story, maybe this was intended to explore the destructive element of revenge before Hollywood got its fangs into it, draining it of any substance, and twisting its themes to resemble the formula of the first Crow movie. Unless the films' creators are truly ignorant and careless, that's the only explanation I have for this kind of blatant hypocrisy.
