The Crow: Salvation (Special Edition) : DVD Talk Review of the DVD Video

the crow special edition review

A movie with a poorly executed story is made even harder to watch when the star of the movie couldn't act his way out of a house with no walls therefore no roof, think about it. Especially those who love the movie! The question still taps away at all our doors, namely would the film be the cult classic it became without the Brandon Lee tragedy? If Brandon Lee hadn't died during production, this film would be regarded as nothing more than an amusing goth fantasy - and not the goth cult classic it seems to have become. Whether its the scene where he embeds a crow-like design in Tin-Tin's chest, or leaves behind a fiery calling card after sending T-bird to his death, Brandon Lee left his mark. The style evokes the rapid shot changes of comic book reading, better the The Hulk ever did with its artsy cutting style. The artwork is dated, but beautifully so. With the Special Edition, the things that were added made the story easier to read since it was choppy the first run through.

Although he died, he is brought back to the world to have his revenge on the the group of criminals who caused his death. I'm a fast reader but with The Crow I waned I saw the movie for the first time when I was 12 years old. So what are you waiting for, got the movie yet, don't forget the popcorn to go with it. Alex Proyas did an excellent job of transferring this feeling from the book onto celluloid. Sofia Shinas, is very good as Shelley, however, she didn't have much screen time, but was great when on screen.

The Crow: Special Edition

the crow special edition review

The Crow, is the figure of revengeā€¦. The tragic circumstances surrounding this film and Brandon Lee also add to it's allure. You don't have to be interested in a particular genre of film to watch it, because there is something for everyone in this film. I don't want to go into detail about how because that would utterly spoil everything. As for one of the ending pages before some art, it has a German poem? The director has given a great comic book and fine actor a movie to be proud of. I never considered myself a big fan of classic comic book heroes.

Book Review: The Crow Special Edition

the crow special edition review

The characters really aren't fully written and some of film's dialogue seemed rather cliched and lacking in interest, originality and intensity. Better than The Godfather, better than The Matrix and better than Die Hard! James O' Barr put together a story of anger, pain, and love and Alex Proyas turned his vision into a masterpiece. Sadly the footage of the Skull Cowboy scenes was not included on the disc, but the storyboards were. And by far the most interesting of the lot - Profile of James O'Barr. Without a doubt one of the worst films I have ever seen.

The Crow: Salvation (Special Edition) : DVD Talk Review of the DVD Video

the crow special edition review

Most people usually look away when experiencing something negative, but I am always driven to understand it and appreciate it if nothing can be done about it. The Crow is my favorite comic book film. James O'Barr is a master of his craft. The author includes a forward and an afterward speaking about his process and his need to write this particular story. I would highly recommend this film because it will keep you watching from beginning to end.

Crow: Collector's Edition, The

the crow special edition review

The plot of this film is so universal. Special note should be made of the films soundtrack. The buildings tower high over the urban streets, overlooking a sad foundation without law, justice or order - you know everything about this world with one shot. With his combination of modern musical instruments and foreign instruments and his tasteful and original use of synthesizers, he will always be one of the most talented composers. Have you ever lost someone you loved? Stone Temple Pilots, Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine, The Cure, and more are featured.

The White Crow review

the crow special edition review

Being brought back from the dead not to avenge yourself, but to avenge the death of your loved one. While living in Berlin in 1981, O'Barr began work on The Crow as a means of dealing with his personal tragedy. And the artwork is just as go The Crow is an example of how truly amazing something can turn out if you put your heart into it. Brandon Lee did a great job as an actor like everyone else, but the story about his death is totally insane, which made me worship the movie even more. I'll be reviewing the three discs in order, starting with The Crow tonight.

The Crow: 2 DVD Special Edition : DVD Talk Review of the DVD Video

the crow special edition review

I really feel terrible writing this review, especially seeing everyone else raving about how great this movie is, and also, knowing about Brandon Lee's infamously tragic death on the set, but I must write on. However, it's engrossing from start to finish and had me close to tears in places. The film is certainly different in many ways than the second film - where that was more of a fantasy-ish landscape, this seems at least somewhat more grounded in reality, even if it is a rather grim version of it. I simply regret watching the unspeakably pathetic and inappropriate sequels. I was initially put off the idea of the movie as i am a big fan of the graphic novel and there was an awful lot of hype around this film on its release. Eric anguishes, remembers the good times, kills some bad guys; repeat as needed.

The Crow: Special Edition by James O'Barr

the crow special edition review

James O'Barr is an accomplished artist and writer, best known for creating The Crow. I think people should read this for simple fact it hits a lot of it's marks. Brandon Lee delivers his lines to the point they were instantly memorable after seeing the film only once. As for Brandon Lee, this really was a superb performance and it is a terrible tragedy that his life ended so abruptly. Brandon Lee did an excellent job of playing Eric Draven, one of the most complicated comic book characters ever. The production design and cinematography combines to create an atmosphere in a society without hope, accentuated only further by a Middle-East inspired score by Graeme Revell, and choicy tunes by Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, Stone Temple Pilots and My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult. The Crow is an adaption of a then-little-known graphic novel of the same name by James O'Barr.
