From Amazon.co.uk

Because of his tragic death on the set of The Crow, we'll never know if Brandon Lee would have turned one successful film into a popular series. But one look at this tepid sequel suggests that not even the charismatic Lee could have rescued The Crow movies from the burden of a lacklustre screenplay. Based on the popular comic books by James O'Barr, this sequel finds Vincent Pérez as a man named Ashe, who is murdered along with his young son by a gang of drug-running thugs under the employ of slimy kingpin Judah Earl (Richard Brooks). Ashe is resurrected with the help of a tattoo artist named Sarah (Mia Kirschner), whereupon he begins a campaign of revenge against his killers. More a rehash than a sequel, the film repeats the grungy, dark look of urban decay from The Crow, but its combination of violence, heavy-handed symbolism and tacky sentiment make this a film strictly for nihilistic teens. Then again, no movie in which veteran punkster Iggy Pop plays a slimeball can be considered a total loss. -- Jeff Shannon, Amazon.co.uk

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical dark moody revenge thriller 28 Jan 2005
Format:DVD
I can't remember the first crow film (been almost 10 years since I saw it) so I can't say how it compares to that.
Ashe is man who was murdered with son. Sarah a tattoo artist who, despite living in a very rough part of town still has her idealism intact. Jedah is the head of the criminal organisation that killed Ashe. At his side is a woman who has powers of her own.
Sarah starts having nightmares about Ashe's death. Strangely enough a crow is around when she's having them. When Ashe is resurrected Sarah becomes one of Ashe's guides.
Character development of the Ashe and Sarah is reasonable but the others are more or less cardboard cut out caricatures (with the possible exception of "Curve", one of Jedah's subordinates).
In the end the atmosphere is reminiscent of Daredevil but it's a lot bleaker in general outlook. In some places it goes overboard on depraved sex to show how terrible the members of the gang are.
It's an OK film but nothing brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pretty good sequel - if slightly gruesome! 4 Jan 2004
Format:VHS Tape
The sequel to the '94 cult classic, sees another soul brought back to take his revenge. Ashe (Vincent Perez) and his son were murdered after witnessing something they shouldn't have. This time Ashe is aided not only by The Crow but also Sarah (Eric and Shelley's friend from the first film), who has had visions of him.
Again, it follows the same general theme as before - revenge and eternal love. Slightly more violent than the first, and we find out more about The Crow's power of resurrection.
Overall a good sequel - a wonderfully deranged performance from Iggy Pop as Curve (one of the murderer's) and a small cameo for Ian Dury as Sarah's friend Noah - all help to make this for an enjoyable, if slightly gruesome, movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars City Of Angels 3 Aug 2002
Format:DVD
Although this film was assaulted straight away by critics and crow fans alike i think it was mostly ok. This film was not done justice in my opinion, The lack of Brandon Lee from the first film gave it bad write ups which is unfair. Complaints about how the film was a rehash of the first is also unfair, There's quite a limited way of showing how a man comes back from the dead to avenge his murder. The film in my opinion is a good attempt at bringing the Crow back. The film's downfall is however the fault of Miramax. The movie was edited to Make the main character Ashe Corven a nice guy, in the unedited version he was unkind and gave up on his mission, not allowing himself to rest in peace. Overall i liked this film. As in the previous Crow film the soundtrack does it justice.

3.0 out of 5 stars CROW IN A HEADWIND 1 April 2013
Format:DVD
This for me was A) a wasted opportunity and B) a bit of a disapointment.

Firstly in an attempt to defend it , having to follow the original , this flight was always going to get shot at BUT it does not help itself. There were some good scenes ( strip club being 1 - not for the reason you may think ) and the storyline had potential to pull different heart strings as this was a single dad and his son rather than fiancees.

The main reason in my personal opinion is the choice of lead NOT THE GREATEST, you can hardly understand him at times , he was actually better in scenes where he was not talking.

Another thing that bugs me is when they attempt to put in celebs who are not actors into films in this case IGGY POP , who you just want deaded asap.

Overall this is watchable but in conparison to the original NO MATCH.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does Not Soar Like the First Crow 1 Sep 2011
By Gigoer
Format:DVD
Many argue whether or not this film should be compared to the first movie, but for a concept as original as The Crow, it's impossible not to.

In this follow-up, Vincent Perez plays Ashe who along with his young son, accidently witnesses a murder on the street by a gang of thugs. To ensure there are no witnesses to the crime, they are then murdered by the gang & dumped in the river. A Crow resurrects Ashe from his watery grave to take his vengeance & leads him to Sarah (the child from the first movie who is now a young woman with psychic abilities and therefore knows of Ashe & his son's fate.) With her past experience with Eric Draven in the original, she paints Ashe up as the Crow & guides him through his quest.

Despite many of the film's flaws, Vincent Perez makes for an excellent crow character here; the brutality of his murder is amplified by his desperate pleas for mercy for his son & his absolute horror when he awakens from the dead & realises what has occurred. Where Brandon Lee dispatched the bad guys one by one with a satisfying coolness, this Crow brutally kills his victims with uncontrollable rage and it's refreshing to see such a justified anger in the character. And yet in one poignant scene, he weeps for his son showing the tender side of the man that once was. Perez carries all of this off in style & he is indeed the best aspect of the film.

However, there is little script development or subplot here as the Crow literally bounces from one killing to the next without regard for other characters, which is a pity as Mia Kirshner plays a mysterious Sarah whose character potential is left unexplored, while Richard Brooks completely overacts in the role of Judah, the big cheese this time.
