The Crow: City of Angels

After witnessing a drug-related killing, Ashe Corven (Vincent Perez) gets brutally murdered by an evil drug cartel -- and brought back to life by a mysterious crow. With help from the beautiful Sarah (Mia Kirshner), he exacts revenge on his killers one by one -- only to realize that his enemy, the lethal Judah (Richard Brooks), has found the one weakness that can destroy Ashe. Tim Pope directed this brooding sequel to the 1994 cult hit The Crow.

Motorcycle mechanic returns to life to avenge his own murder. Utterly devoid of shock value. Read the review

Even for teens hooked on the grandiloquence of death-metal masochism, the movie may seem closer to an endless Sunday in church. full review

Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

Stunningly awful. full review

Joe Leydon, Variety

Fans of both O'Barr's source inspiration and Brandon Lee's initial embodiment may want to nit-pick, but this Crow has something to crow about. full review

Richard Harrington, Washington Post

The city of overacting, the city of bad writing and the city of truly dreadful sequels. full review

Jack Mathews, Los Angeles Times

It verges on the misanthropic and necrophiliac; more in love with the absence of characters, their demise, than with flesh and blood.

Keith Simanton,

Comes across as a scattershot video with corny and contrived action scenes. full review

Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle

Little more than a subpar remake of the first outing. full review

James Berardinelli, ReelViews

Utterly devoid of energy and shock value. full review

Stephen Holden, New York Times
