"Yes, I read comics & watch movies of them. I'm ok with that."
Comics, a cool scary hero, Detroit on mischeif night...what's not to like?If nothing else, go see this for Brandon Lee. He kicked total ass. And, macabre as it may be, it's fun to watch on video to try to catch scenes they had to use a double in.
But first, a summmation of events: Eric's gal pal/wife to be is beaten and raped and killed on their wedding night because he won't evict for some evil underlord. He dies too. He comes back for revenge a year later. He's got all kinds of cool powers. He's also got a sidekick little girl who needs him. Anyways, he goes after all the people who were there that night, plus their boss. He gets them all, he makes his sidekick's life better, and badaboombadabing, he goes back to where he once belonged. Why they made a second one of these is beyond me. I wouldn't go see it because in my mind no one but Brandon could be the Crow...but do they listen to me? noOOOoooooo.
Needless to say, Brandon Lee is wonderful. The plot is as flimsy as can be expected, but it's clear-cut revenge. You can't really go wrong.A great action adventure. 4 sporks.
