Product Description

Hot stars Kirsten Dunst (BRING IT ON) and Eric Mabius (CRUEL INTENTIONS) star in THE CROW: SALVATION -- the third exciting motion picture in THE CROW legacy! Wrongly executed for the murder of his girlfriend, Alex Corvis (Mabius) returns from the dead and sets out to find the real killer! Aided by his girlfriend's sister (Dunst) ... and under the guidance of the mysterious crow ... he unmasks a tangled web of corruption and deceit! Alex seeks not only retribution for his injustice, but redemption for the darkness in his soul!


Clean-cut kid Alex Corvis (Eric Mabius) is framed and executed for the brutal murder of his girlfriend (Jodi Lynn O'Keefe). He is revived by a crow spirit guide to hunt down the corrupt policemen who committed the crime, and ultimately to unmask the mysterious scarred man who ordered her death. The macabre noirish spin James O'Barr's original graphic novels put on the superhero mythos translated reasonably well for the original film of the series, directed by Alex Proyas in 1994 and starring the late Brandon Lee. But the premise had already worn thin by the first sequel, 1996's The Crow: City of Angels, and this entry simply rehashes the same story (tragic hero in clown greasepaint avenges beautiful dead girlfriend by eliminating outlandish villains) without adding anything new to the mix. Mabius brings nothing to the role except boyish good looks, while Kirsten Dunst is wasted in a supporting role as the murdered girl's sister. The supporting cast includes career cad William Atherton as Dunst's red-handed dad, and Fred Ward as a police captain with a taste for recreational surgery. Director Bharat Nalluri (the minor U.K. cult pic Killing Time, 1998) ably handles the action scenes and faux postindustrial atmosphere but seems at odds with how to pace or stage dialogue scenes (not that X-Files scribe Chip Johannesson's script provides any worth the effort). Gore effects courtesy the KNB Group and a Sturm und Drang soundtrack featuring Kid Rock, Hole, and others will help hold the most loyal fans' interest. --Paul Gaita

I don't know what to tell you, for whatever reason this movie only got a token release in theaters and that alone will turn a lot of people off of this movie, but I could find little fault in it. THe plot has Eric Mabius playing young Alex, a man framed for the death of his girlfriend who is executed by electrocution on the eve of his 21st birthday. He claims his innocence and proclaims the involvent of a man with a scarred arm (shades of the Fugitive) but the cops can't seem to find him. Imbued with the power of the crow, Alex returns and with the aid of his lawyer and his girlfriend's sister, he sets out to unravel the conspiracy surrounding his girlfriend's death, running across crooked cops and sordid sex clubs. The DVD is a fairly good buy, the commentary is interesting and although most of the featurettes are under 10 minutes and mostly fluff material, they are informative, once. The DVD presentation is pretty decent, there is a little shimmer around the edges of the screen, but nothing serious and, although dark, the picture is clear. THe sound, possibly the most important facet of this music driven series, is clear, crisp and beautiful. I recommend this to fans of the series, but to others this might be a rent first type of movie. Still, as a fan of this series, I think that not releasing this movie in wide release was a true injustice to the filmmakers and the fanbase but this DVD is a step toward redeeming the studio. Enjoy.

...but regardless, this is still a relatively good movie. The third addition to The Crow series, this film does something which the second one (The Crow: City of Angels) failed to do - it does something different. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of The Crow. I've read the comics and the novels, I've sat through the syndicated television show, I own all three movies. Because of all these factors, many people would probably expect me to go into a rant about how horrid this film is, that it disgraces the memory of Brandon Lee and whoever responsible for it should experience a slow and painful death.
I'm not going to say that. Because, what some of these other reviewers failed to notice about The Crow franchise is that it's a very universal concept. Anyone who's been wronged can be resurrected through the mystical powers of the enigmatic crow. The last thing I wanted this movie to be was another rehash of the original. I didn't want to see yet ANOTHER guy with long, dark hair, an affinity for leather, and goth appeal oozing from every orifice. I wanted to see something different. In my mind, Salvation accomplishes this. The lead character has short hair, and he's dressed in prison fatigues. Right there, it breaks one major stereotype of The Crow. And that leads into my main complaint about fans of the series. Some (not all, mind you) don't want The Crow films to be a rehash of the first film. Yet, they also rant and rave if it's different. So how, praytell, do you expect it to be an original film if it's not allowed to be different from the first film?
Brandon Lee was simply marvelous in The Crow. That much is a given. Anyone who's watched it, even if they didn't like the film, they enjoyed his performance. He was truly born to play that role.

I absolutely loved the first "Crow" movie. It was a tragic, gothic romance that absolutely moved me enough to buy it. This sequel to "The Crow" isn't without it's flaws, but is better than the lousy second sequel.
In this sequel, a man is wrongfully executed for a murder he didn't commit. Of course, when one is wronged through death, the crow comes back and brings him back to avenge his death, yeah, you get the picture. This time, the murdered girlfriend's sister, Kristin Dunst, is a major player in this movie as well as a couple of other actors you will be surprised to see.
Whereas the second Crow closely resembled the first, (and badly, I might add,) this one is different. It resembles a movie that can stand on it's own rather than a sequel. No one from the first or second movie is in this. However, it is more gory than the first two. One word: taxidermy.
Do I recommend this? Only if you're a die-hard fan. It's not bad, it's just for preferential taste only. Plus, you have to have a tougher stomach as well (considering one of the scenes has Kirsten having her mouth sewn shut rather than just taping it to keep her from screaming.) You'll appreciate the effort made with this one rather than the appauling second. Think of it like "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" apologizing for "Temple of Doom." Although unfortunately, it's not THAT good. But better.
Die-hard fans will probably like it, not necessarily buy it -- new viewers go get the original instead.

I was (and still am) a big fan of the original "The Crow," but since it's sequel "The Crow: City Of Angels" failed to impress me, I never bothered with this installment, "The Crow: Salvation." However, I recently saw this available for purchase at a dirt cheap price, and seeing the lovely Kirsten Dunst on the cover (who I'll watch in anything), I figured what better time than now. Having now seen it, I can tell you that I made a mistake in ever passing it by. "Salvation" gets it right. Whereas the previous movie was a redundant remake of the original, this installment goes a bit darker and bit edgier. One thing's for sure, it's a lot meaner, even going further than the original did at times. The first 10 minutes alone contain so much dramatic impact that it could be a movie in itself. Right from the get-go, this movie sucks you in and grabs your attention. Without hardly any exposition, we manage to make an emotional connection and an investment in our main character, Alex Corvis (played by Eric Mabius).

Alex has just been wrongly executed for the murder of his girlfriend, the love of his life. Since this is a "Crow" movie, Alex gets to come back from the dead and find out who killed her, and why. With a little help from his good-guy lawyer (the only person who believed him all along) and the sister (played by Dunst) of his girlfriend, he tracks down the people involved in the murder, in an effort to find the one responsible. It plays out in typical fashion really. I'm not gonna say the movie is unpredictable. Quite the opposite. But the difference here is how intense the situation is. The actors all portray their characters very effectively and make us love them and hate them, just as much as we should. The story is engrossing, and moves along quite swiftly.
