Do not let anyone tell you this is a poor remake of the original. The film is absolutely beautiful, but if you're one of those closed-minded fans who only like The Crow because of Brandon Lee, you will never give this sequel a chance to prove its self that it could be just as good as the original.The storyline is a good one. Revenging your son's death rather than your girlfriend's is a lot more deep. Sarah is gorgeous and has a dark sense of style. Vincent Perez was also a fine choice to play Ashe.There are some very beautiful quotes in the film too.There really is nothing wrong <more>
with this film. I don't have the slightest clue why people hate it.9.5/10
I found the movie quite interesting, the history is the typical in the crow saga, the movie is complex and raw, better in some aspect than the original. This is one of my favorites; i haven't seen Vincent Perez and Mia performance until this movie, i think their expressions are strong, they transmit the sadness of his character in a very convincing way, the villain are extravagant but i found Iggy's Pop character the best, I from México, and i particular like the way the director present the dead's altar and the way the woman described how we deal with dead and grieve, Mia looks <more>
gorgeous in this movie. I broadly recommend this movie.
this is a surprisingly great movie. in fact, i'd say the crow trilogy is one of the best in the horror/dark action/supernatural genre. all the films are different enough to establish their own personality, but still similar enough in that they follow the exploits of a wronged man trying seeking vengeance. this film does what a sequel should do. while you can't continue the exploits of the eric draven, it brings back sarah from the first movie and continues the story of the crow granting a victim a chance to make things right. the only problem is it suffered from having to follow the <more>
legacy of the 1st crow movie. i thoroughly enjoyed the first crow movie, but i must say this is better in just about every aspect. it is shot so much better. in the first one, they try to make the film dark by washing out all the colors. this one achieves to be more twisted and sinister just by using darker hues and washing out most of the bright colors. it also has a deeper sense of foreboding and impending doom, and makes it villains darker and more mysterious by adding a slight touch of mysticism and perversion. vincent perez is fantastic as the crow, playing a more vulnerable ashe to lee's draven. he provides a more frustrated and frantic feel to his vengeance. he also adds more desperation, remembering his final moments when dispatching his enemies. mia kirshner is excellent as sarah and plays the role with just enough emotion to purvey her pain suffering but also an understanding of the crow mythos. the script is better written, making the film darker without resorting to stripping the film of color. the villains are made more sadistic and the crime to spark the crow more tragic. there is also a tighter feel between the characters by having it take place in what appears to be a pretty empty city except for during the climax. i dont want to ruin it, but the setting within the setting helps the story move along so much better to. tim pope does a superb job directing, adding an extra bit of flair to all the visuals from scene to scene while still the more gothic, medieval feel of the film. the soundtrack is also so much better. it isn't as all over the place as the first and maintains the intended feel of the movie with all of its tracks. it is also masterfully peppered throughout the movie, picking just the right song at just the right moment to add the little extra bit of feeling that help completes the scene. this film has just about all the ingredients of an underrated classic. my advice to you is to go out and rent this movie, but when you watch it forget about the legacy surrounding the crow and just try to enjoy it.
Stop criticising this movie! Surly it's no match for the first Crow movie, but in the long run it's a totally different movie to the first. The Characters are different, The actors are different, the villains are different and technically the story is different, for in the first movie, It's Eric Draven's Fiancée that gets murdered and the "sequel", It's Ashe's SON that get's murdered.O.K. maybe i'm wrong, it more likely is a sequel. But it's not a sequel to the first crow film, it does not follow the same story, it's about a completely <more>
different person.The message I'm trying to get through to you is: "Stop thinking of it as a sequel. Think of it as it's own movie, THEN you'll enjoy it better." Walk down to a video store near you, and rent it out. Just give the damn movie a chance.
Why do people think The Crow and The Crow: City of Angels is the same? (by darkangel6266)
First of all, I don't see why people say The Crow: City of Angels was like The Crow. Okay, so yes there were some similar parts Kali and Skank both got thrown out of a window, Spider Monkey and T-Bird were both blown up, etc. . But it wasn't completely the same! Ashe and his son were killed, not Ashe and his fiancé. Eric didn't fall in love with Sarah. Top Dollar didn't drink the crow's blood and gain it's power and Judah did. The only similarities in the whole plot were the deaths partly and the basic theme a guy and someone he loves gets killed and he comes back <more>
to avenge their deaths . But the point is not to continue the movie and replace Brandon Lee, or am I that misinformed? I think not. The directors weren't trying to replace Brandon Lee, because that would not be easy. He was the best actor ever. Still, why do so many people think they're supposed to be the replacing everyone? Admitedly, the bad guys were a little stale in this movie. Judah and the Sybil were so old! They were like some kind of tribal leaders. So boring. But the whole movie was in my opinion better than the first one. The Crow was way hotter to. And that IS NOT the reason I watched it; that's just a comment. Hey, I'm a sucker for magicians with accents. Sue me. Anyway, it was much more wild. The blood and guts part- I'm not into all that gore, but it made the movie better. Ashe was very manic and driven headfirst into a wall 80 times when he was a kid to kill because of his love for his son. Eric Draven was so emotional. Don't get me wrong, I liked them both. I just think City of Angels better. If Eric had a little bit more entusiasm and rip-your-fu*king-guts-out mania, then we'll talk about replacements. Until then, Jesus settle down kids! It's not trying to play copy-cat!
I would like to suggest that if given the option, people should see CoA, then The Crow, then Salvation later when it comes out. CoA is an excellent movie in its own right, when you compare it with its source, that being a comic book. It's source is not the original Crow. It's a different movie experience all together.M2c
The movie was decent (by HenshinHero)
Yep. The movie was great and it's in the third place.First of all, Vincent Perez did was really great and he did with his best to play as the Crow.Second, my favorite actress of childhood who used to be as Trini, the original Yellow Ranger in 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.' I was very sad that Thuy Trang died in 2001.Anyways, Thuy did really good job in this film. Keep in mind, she had a very brilliant martial art skills. Sadly, that was her last film. : Rest in peace, Thuy Trang. May the power protect you.Third, the action scenes were amazing. One of the best part was the Crow <more>
chased Curve and apparently, Curve got owned by The Crow. That was great part overall.Last, overall, this movie is very underrated and I give this film 8 out of 10.Very underrated.
If anyone tells you that Crow: The city of Angels is just a poor shadow of The Crow, don't listen! The City of Angels is not just a dark and gripping story of pain and revenge. It's much much more. It complements the first movie perfectly, without messing up the whole point. Ash perez is wonderful as the main character, not letting you forget for a moment what drives him in his revenge. But what amazed me most is that, as Ash goes through his victims one by one, his ways of dealing with them is not just fearsome, but...beautiful. I mean, some of those scenes really catch your <more>
aesthetic eye. And just a look into the girl's eyes takes you into a whole new perspective on things.The Crow: City of Angels makes a dark movie beautiful. And what else do you expect from part II?
"We all have our pleasures, mine is the pain of other's." Surprisingly good. (by poolandrews)
The Crow: City of Angels starts with a kind hearted tattooist named Sarah Mia Kirshner having a dream about a man & his young son being killed & thrown into the sea. For some unexplained reason this makes her travel to a local dock where the dead body of Ashe Corven Vincent Perez comes back to life, rising Excalibur like from the water all overlooked by a Crow... Back in Sarah's apartment she tells Ashe that he has been brought back to life by the Crow so that he may avenge the injustice dished out to him & his young son Danny Eric Acosta who were both brutally killed <more>
after witnessing a murder ordered & overseen by local drug dealing bad guy Judah Earl Richard Brooks . After Ashe remember's the events of the night he was killed & a bit of grieving for his son he sets out to kill Judah & his gang, first up is Spider Monkey Vincent Castellanos as all the mayhem unfolds under the watchful eyes of a mysterious Crow...The Crow: City of Angels is music video director Tim Pope's one & only full length theatrical film & I have to admit I really rather liked it. The script by David S. Goyer based on the comic series & strips by James O'Barr moves along like a rocket & while it's a simple tale of revenge & isn't a massive departure from the original The Crow 1994 I was throughly entertained throughout. There isn't much to say about the story as I've pretty much summed it up already but it does feel a little dream like at times & I could have done without the heavy handed supernatural elements like the psychic & the stupid ending. The one thing that really impressed me about The Crow: City of Angels is it's look & feel, director Pope & cinematographer Jean-Yves Escoffier create a wonderful Gothic futuristic world populated by black & white character's, their either good or bad. I love the lighting, Pope films almost everything in a yellow tint & every shot in this film appears to have been considered & manipulated in some way. There are some great scenes in The Crow: City of Angels in particular I liked the shot of Ashe speeding along on his motorbike with the two flaps of his long leather coat flapping behind him either side in the turbulence like wings of a bird, maybe a Crow? The flashback scenes work less well, Pope uses slow motion, blurriness & hand held jerkiness which come across as cheap compared to the visual excellence of the rest of the film. The stylised comic book inspired production design credited to Alex McDowell is great as well with a bleak run down city overrun by depression & darkness, from Sarah's apartment to Judah's hideout complete with living S/M sculptures & the graffiti covered walls of the filth ravaged streets The Crow: City of Angels looked fabulous to my eyes & a visual treat. The special effects are good with some terrific shots of the Crows flying over & around the city as the camera follows them. The action scenes are decent if a little low key, there's a cool motorbike chase, some good explosions, various fights with weapons like swords & butterfly knives & assorted gunfights. With a budget of about $13,000,000 The Crow: City of Angels is well made throughout & has that Hollywood polish about it, the acting is OK with Perez doing alright with both the action sequences & the sentimental bits as well, Kali the sexy leather clad bad girl was played by the late Thuy Trang & was her last film appearance. I'm not sure about Iggy Pop as Curve as he looked a bit on the old side to be running around with guns & speeding around on motorbikes. There isn't much in the way of explicit violence or gore just a syringe shoved up someone's nose & someone who lands on their head after being thrown out of a window. I am aware that the studio who pumped money into this film drastically re-cut & altered it before it's initial release, according to the IMDb the extra scenes & changes would have made a huge difference to the finished film but that's history & we can't change it, this is the version we got & that's all there is to it. There's no use crying over spilt milk, right? I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed The Crow: City of Angels, I'm not sure it's for everyone but then I don't really care as I liked it & that's all that matters in the end. Personally I think it's well worth a watch if you like dark, violent Gothic action orientated fantasy films!
