May 23, 2020
From heartbreak, rage, pain, love, and even brief moments of humor, Brandon Lee brings all the pathos to the table.

Proyas created a look and feel to The Crow that was wholly unique.
September 25, 2019
The Crow is so stylish and so particularly of its time, it's kind of impossible to resist its charms, even when acknowledging how downright ludicrous most of what happens actually is.

The movie is very interesting, it's very funny, and again, it presents two experiences: The movie and the soundtrack alone. These two experiences are good, and when they are put together it is even better. [Full Review in Spanish]

Unlike many comic-book heroes, Eric Draven is no wiseguy. Nor does he don a balletic costume of capes, tights, boots, etc. A line in the screenplay by David J. Schow and John Shirley describes him aptly: "the mime from hell.''

Despite its hardcore demeanor, there's also a surprisingly sensitive streak weaving throughout the film.

December 7, 2017
Luridly lit, jumpily edited and searingly scored, the film is little more than an extended pop video, the thin plot an excuse for an orgy of destruction and vengeful violence.
April 10, 2013
Alex Proyas's pulp revenge fantasy, based on a comic-book saga by James O'Barr, is dark, moody, and seductively overwrought; it's an amazingly pure expression of morbid adolescent romanticism.
April 10, 2013
This lurid thriller is long on nasty shocks but short on spontaneity, intelligence, and good acting.
April 10, 2013
It's a pleasure to welcome The Crow -- a bird of a very different feather.

The Crow also runs a huge villain deficit.

April 10, 2013
As exploitation pictures go, I've seen a whole lot worse.
April 10, 2013
The Crow, starring the late Brandon Lee, is like one long fright night. Even though it was photographed in color, the edge-of-darkness atmosphere descends on the audience like a shroud.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
April 10, 2013
The movie's central value and its most melancholy tone -- Lee's star presence. It's amazing and it's tragic.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 10, 2013
A stylized revenge fantasy of dark beauty.
April 10, 2013
What's scary about The Crow is the story and the style itself: American Gothic, Poe-haunted nightmare, translated to the age of cyberpunk science fiction, revenge movies and outlaw rock 'n' roll, all set in a hideously decaying, crime-ridden urban hell.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
January 29, 2012
The Crow is a visually immersive, emotionally wrought comic adaptation and one of the best gothic tales ever made.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
April 16, 2011
Stronger visually than thematically, this romantic film noir is utterly seductive
Full Review | Original Score: B+

Style over content, sure, but what style...
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
July 14, 2010
[Features] a heartfelt romantic core and some handsome, acrobatic action sequences that do justice to Lee's undoubted martial mastery.
