Excerpt: This is a great story, Brandon Lee's last was his best. Bet I have seen this a hundred times it never gets old.The movies picture and audio have never been better. It's loaded with features. Don't skip this one buy it.
Excerpt: I enjoyed the film on DVD. It was good enough. On a whim, I picked up the Blu on sale. Money well spent. You can see the picture quality from the opening title lettering -- from soft to crisp. Arguably, the reds are a bit too hyped. But overall, a order of magnitude improvement.
Excerpt: I will keep it simple. I own the DVD of this film and sat down to watch the blu ray last night. I was utterly blown away by PQ. I felt like I was watching the film all over again. If you are a fan of this film, get it on blu ray. You will not be disappointed.
Excerpt: A story about a dead man whose come back to life ironically played by an actor who died before the film's release. What irony! Lee turns in a solid performance in what would've been a strong career as Draven and Alex Proyas' delivers visually as he does in Dark City and I Robot, among others.
Finally, a version of "The Crow" you can be proud to own.

Excerpt: Movie: The acting of many of the henchmen can leave a lot to be desired. The plot is fairly predictable and pretty thin, it does feel a little bit dated in some parts. However the mood, the cinematography, the vision- this movie is visually groundbreaking in a lot of ways.
Excerpt: 1994 is a special year for me, cinematically anyways. That year gave me films like The Lion King, Forrest Gump and Pulp Fiction, 3 of my all-time favorites. In May '94, almost exactly 1 year after the accidental death of Brandon Lee, his final finished film The Crow was released.
One of the best movies of the 1990's gets a quality blu ray release wh

Excerpt: The Crow is one of those few movies that I have owned several times. Once on full screen VHS (before I reached the age of reason), once on widescreen VHS, once on barebones DVD and on the special edition DVD that's been out for the past decade.
Conclusion: The Crow is a superb film full of imagination, visual flare and style with a great rock soundtrack. Brandon Lee, while not the greatest actor, is wonderfully brooding as the unstoppable vigilante raised from the dead to avenge his murdered wife.
