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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
