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. And the sound is comparably that much more defined.
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. Before there was Batman Begins and the Dark Knight, this was among the few dark, adult, R comic book adaptations out there.
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. It's gothic before goth was mainstraim. It's "emo" before that phrase even existed. Then there's the whole drama surrounding Brandon Lee's premature and sudden death.
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. Very ironic as his character in the film, Eric Draven, comes back from the dead exactly 1 year after his death to avenge the murders of him and his fiance.
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. That was until this past week when I finally got the chance to own this modern day classic on blu ray. To say I was the target demographic for this movie when it was first released would be a gross understatement.
