Product Description

The third instalment of the Crow series, a revenge saga set in a fantastical urban nightmare based upon the dark comic book stories of artist James O. Barr. Falsely convicted for the murder of his girlfriend, Alex Corvis (Eric Mabius) has spent three years on death row insisting that he was innocent. The film opens with his graphically-depicted electrocution, performed on his 21st birthday. After his wrongful execution, Corvis comes back from the dead to hunt down the real killer, helped by his girlfriend's sister Erin (Kirsten Dunst) and the mysterious guardian crow who resurrected him.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE CROW: SALVATION 4 May 2007
Format:DVD
I had bought this with the original THE CROW & THE CROW: WICKED PRAYER. I watched this last night in bed and I really enjoyed it. Its not as bad as people are making out. I admit the make up isn't as good as the original but it still does the job. This was a straight to DVD film so its not going to be that well known or well received but its still a good film in its own right.

Kirsten Dunst (Spider Man) and Eric Mabius (Cruel Intentions) star in The Crow: Salvation - the third film in The Crow series. Wrongfully executed for the murder of his girlfriend, Alex Corvis (Mabius) returns from the dead and sets out to find the real killer. Aided by his girlfriend's sister (Dunst)... and under the guidance of the mysterious crow he unmasks a tangled web of corruption and deceit. Alex seeks not only retribution for his injustice, but redemption for the darkness in his soul.

The Crow: Salvation is better then I expected. Although the straight to DVD feel is apparent during the action scenes. Salvation is a very good sequel in The Crow series.

The violence of course is bloody and gory but this time it actually feels justified like the first time with Eric. Alex uses his healing powers more then they did in the other Crow films, either from actual need to heal or just to be playful. A common aspect in The Crow films seems to be each hero is shot several times by several eople and they then look on in amazement as they die by the hero's hands.

The acting was decent but nothing mind blowing. Mabius seemed to be having more fun doing the action scenes then the heart felt scenes and it shows. Kirsten Dunst is good in her role but everyone else isn't (apart from Mabius).

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than 2, not as good as 1 9 April 2004
Format:DVD
Well - the second film was clearly in no way as good as the first which it attempted to be a carbon copy of. This one, Salvation, puts a twist into it with the murder-mystery element of it and that is good - it saves the film from being another wannabe despite the constraints of O'Barr's Crow universe meaning that this film must be a revenge film. The plot has a little more to it than simply "man-rises-from-dead-and-kills-people" which could be a complaint about the first two films (though not so much the first as it was a more original idea then) Also, this film loses the long hair 'n' leather look of the first two films, which, again, is welcome to prevent it becoming somewhat of a cheesy cliche, know what I'm saying? And there is an interesting twist on the pierot make-up! The deaths of the bad guys are varied though sometimes there was a nagging feeling of, "oh whoop-di-doo, he has killed another person. I wonder how he'll slip the ol' Crow symbol in there this time" that got a bit samey.
I think the performances are more than adequate with the relationship that develops between Dunst and Mabius developing nicely - though their first meeting is a technically a touch dodgy - she doesn't recognise him?!
I would recomend this for ANY fan of The Crow - It does the books and first film justice. And for people who aren't sure about watching the first one, maybe because it looked a bit too gothy - check this one out. It is a self-contained story so you don't need to have seen that one to see this and he doesn't even look very gothy in this.

1.0 out of 5 stars It nearly made me cry 7 Jan 2005
By Simon Daultrey VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Quite simply, it sucks. The reason it nearly made me cry is just that it is so poor.
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad not great 9 Dec 2008
Format:DVD
the biggest issue with this film is that it is compared to the original too much, I've done this myself and thought i'd try and give it a fair portrayal.
so firstly what is good about this film? it's gone back to that dark look that the original had though the colour isn't as washed out, there are some amazing healing scenes that just were not possible to do in original that were fun as well as being graphic.
Dunst's acting was ok as was Mabius and there shared screen time is the only real time you start to pay attention.

Now the bad points and unfortunetly there are a few.
the major issue really is with the bad guys, the acting is below par and to be honest you don't care what happens to them and going back to the original you actually connected with the bad guys you wanted to see them die.
the other issue with really dissapointed me was the fact that alex's powers whent when he thought he'd killed the guy with the scar and he goes a bit mental, as this is a supernatural based film you'd think that alex would have a supernatural awareness that his mission wasn't over and his powers wouldn't go, in the crow eric thought his mission was over when he fought top dollar and only lost his powers when the crow was shot, so this concept apears to be a bad continuity error

based on those issues i would only recomend this movie to people who could honestly watch it without comparing it to the 1st movie.
as a stand alone film it has some brillian special effects, some quirky moments that make you laugh the only down fall is the acting is poor in areas
