The Crow was an excellent film from an excellent director. The Crow: City Of Angels was a not-bad follow-up from a different director, but still maintained the dark, gothic appeal of the original.
The Crow: Salvation hasn't got the gothic bit, it's a lame plot with a bad dialogue and script. The cast is awful too.....they all just look stupid. It's got a few familiar faces in it, which makes it worse, the soundtrack sucks.
Picture and sound quality are good. The best bit of the film is when Kirsten Dunst get's her mouth sewn shut!
It really is only worth having if you want to collect all 3 movies, like me, but don't buy it if you're after something like The Crow, but which you haven't seen yet!
This one is about a young man executed for the murder of his dead girlfriend, but he is not the murderer, so the crow brings him back to get revenge. His only clue to his girlfriend's real murderer is that the murderer has some steel bolts inserted under the skin on his left forearm.
The Crow: Salvation introduces new twists to the Crow mythos and some very powerul performances. Ward (Tremors and Tremors 2), Mabius (Resident Evil) and Dunst (Bring It On) are fantastic, Ward easily stealing the show when he appears. The relationship that develops between Mabius and Dunst is well characterised and portrayed.
Well worth getting your hands on even if you were put off by the poor attempt known as The Crow: City of Angels. This one is true to form and shows a little more influences from the comic books that came after the success of the first movie. Truly excellent stuff.
