Rating: C+ -- If The Crow is forgettable entertainment, it can stand as an eerie epitaph for an actor who looked like he was on the way to better things. Full Review
As exploitation pictures go, I've seen a whole lot worse. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/5 -- The Crow, starring the late Brandon Lee, is like one long fright night. Even though it was photographed in color, the edge-of-darkness atmosphere descends on the audience like a shroud. Full Review

...[A] dazzling fever dream of a movie....Lee is sensational on all counts in a final performance that brims over with athleticism and ardor...
Rating: 3/4 -- It's a pleasure to welcome The Crow -- a bird of a very different feather. Full Review
This lurid thriller is long on nasty shocks but short on spontaneity, intelligence, and good acting. Full Review
Christian Science Monitor
...Lee has phenomenal presence, and his movements are so balletically powerful that his rampages seem like waking nightmares...

A young rock musician who was brutally murdered a year earlier is resurrected as a vengeful superhero in this stylish noir thriller. Out to avenge his and his fiancee's killings by destroying the city's evil crime lord, the Crow becomes a ray of hope for the city while battling his own inner demons. Based on James O'Barr's dark comic book series, this film features Brandon Lee's final performance.
Legend goes that crows ferry the dead across to their resting place. However if the death demands revenge then the crows will assist the avenging souls. On the eve of his wedding, Eric Draven and his fiancee are attacked by criminals, she is viciously assaulted and both are murdered. Draven, once a loving man, returns to the nightmarish city. With the crow as Charon, Draven steps out of the night as a killer instead of a victim. Exploiting his undead ability to heal quickly, he delivers murderous justice with both glee and bitterness to each criminal who snuffed out his life on the brink of happiness.

- Star Brandon Lee, son of celebrated martial artist Bruce Lee, was killed accidentally by an improperly loaded stunt gun on March 31, 1993. There were 3 more days of his scenes to be filmed, and his stunt doubles, Chad Stahelski and Jeff Cadiente, replaced him in a few crucial scenes. The film crew was placed on hiatus, and the film was reworked to be less violent. A voiceover narration by a young girl replaced the harsh character Skull Cowboy who directs Draven on the rules of the dead. There has been speculation that the "family curse" allegedly responsible for the untimely deaths of Bruce Lee and his older brother had also claimed Lee's son.
