Inhabitants of the City of Angels live within a gothic nightmare orchestrated by a despotic psychopath. Single father Ashe (Vincent Perez) loses his own life and that of his son under the murderous regime, but is allowed the chance of revenge when he is resurrected by a mysterious crow. He is guided on his path by a young psychic woman, Sarah (Mia Kirshner), who saw the crow's mighty powers in action once before when her friend Eric Draven was brought back from the dead.
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

+ intensive moments of despair (retrieving his sons dead body from the pier)
+ uses sons paints for his face mask in remembrance.
+ Iggy pop as a villain was cool!
+ liked the lost spirit who doesn't want to leave story/angle
+ the crow riding a motorcycle (for obvious reasons) but it reminded me of blade...
+ when he goes full lunatic on the house instead of the villain (who is pretty thrown off by this!)
- The ringmaster voice wasn't for me (at one point he sounded irish?)
- token girl scene was a bit uncalled for/weird, would have been better if he cut to the chase = boo, you killed my son!
- so many naked people in the underground club (what was this films story about again?)
If you are as big a fan of the first as I am, then I wouldn't watch this one. As I said, if it were a stand alone film, then it would be a lot better.
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.
But people do not let that cloud your judgement to this film. This film is a view into the dark mind of what happens when a person becomes the crow it lets you see that crazy side the dark side.
The film is artistic and has a fantastic soundtrack, it is worth getting and watching because to be a fan of the crow films but rag about this one is a crime.
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.
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.Read more ›
