Rating 8/10

"People once believed, that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes, something so bad happens, that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can't rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes the crow could bring that soul back to put the wrong things right."

The Crow is a 1994 Action/Thriller based on the comic written by James O'Barr and directed by Alex Proyas and stars Brandon Lee, Michael Wincott and Ernie Hudson.

The director of this movie, Alex Proyas, has a very inventive visual style which is very dark and gothic. He uses this style to full effect in order to get the best out of this film. The plot comes from a similarly dark graphic novel written by James O'Barr, and follows the adventures of a man who along with his fiancée was killed by a gang of thugs and resurrected by a crow to get his revenge.

There will always a bit of mystery about this film as Brandon Lee died while making it. Was it the Chinese Mafia? Was it the Triads? Was it the "Lee Curse"?

"If the people we love are taken from us, the way they live on is to never stop loving them. Buildings burn, people die, but real love is forever."
