Tara Reid is ridiculous as is most of the cast except for the girlfriend of the Crow.
Annette
If you go into it knowing you are going to watch a really bad movie you may like it(probably not though).
A. goldey
After this horrid film, I seriously hope that there will never be another Crow movie made ever again.

Miramax just keeps beating a dead horse. The original Crow film, forever remembered as the film that would have shot star Brandon Lee to superstardom if not for his tragic death during filming, was somber in it's tone but was an excellent action film and undoubtadly one of the best comic to film adaptations of all time. Not long later, a sequel (Crow: City of Angels) was churned out based soley on the first film's success, and it was an absolute waste of film. The third film (Crow: Salvation) wasn't quite as bad, but marked the first film in the series to be released direct to video, and when watching you can see why. And now, we have the Crow: Wicked Prayer; the fourth film in the series, and the second to be released direct to video. The storyline (if you can call it that) revolves around an ex-con Jimmy (Terminator 2's Edward Furlong) and his Native American girlfriend who are murdered by a Satanic biker gang (led by David "Angel" Boreanaz and has-been in the making Tara Reid), leading to Jimmy's ressurection as the latest incarnation of the Crow. The first thing you'll notice from the film is the absolutely horrible acting from everyone involved, whether it's Furlong slumming through his role to Boreanaz hamming it up in the film's climax as a wanna-be comedian Satan. Not to mention that poor old Dennis Hopper is here as well, but for no real reason. The storyline is devoid of any emotion or conviction, and what has happened to the soundtrack? Every Crow movie, no matter how bad one could have been, would have a great soundtrack, and Wicked Prayer certainly doesn't. I wouldn't even recommend this to the most die hard fan of the series, Wicked Prayer is an abomination of film and it's license, and it should be avoided by everyone.

I couldn't wait to give this film a chance. Being a big fan of The Crow and most of its incarnations.

I must say that after watching this film I honestly believe that any hope for another decent film based on The Crow is gone. I tried forcing my way to the end, mostly because I paid for it. Upon getting to the point where the mexican/native american (never knew for sure which) does the crow dance to heal the bird I was a goner. I had to fast forward it through the rest of the film. I can't believe that someone read this script and said "I'll give away money to make that!"

The acting wasn't overly bad, mostly just a bad story. Edward Furlongs character has absolutely no confidence as The Crow and it showed. You couldn't make out half of his lines in the movie. The romance between him and his gal was totally unbelievable. I honestly could write a chapter on why I hated this movie, but it just isn't worth anymore of my time. Buyer Beware!

PS: The soundtrack was just a waste. What happened to the always cool Crow movie soundtrack to redeem at least a few scenes?

Let me start this review by stating emphatically that this movie SUCKED. It's HORRIBLE. I beg you -- nay! -- I PLEAD with you never, ever to waste a second of your life watching it. The only wickedness here would be if you didn't heed my advice and coughed up a Ballbuster rental fee. The fact that Jay O'Barr, who penned the original "Crow" graphic novel and fought tooth and nail along with Brandon Lee to get it made into a movie the right way, has his name tacked onto the credits of this dreck is truly an insult to that tortured genius. I remember an interview from the original Crow DVD where he equated his idea to a beautiful tree that witless studio executives lined up to p*** on. Well, Jay, it looks like their bladders are still tragically full.

Painful as the subject is (excuse me while I dose myself with morphine....aaaah) I shall now discuss the movie. Basically, this fourth entry (there was a third?) in the "Crow" series finds a reformed ex-con played by Edward Furlong and his honey getting offed by a cult of Satanic-worshipping muscle-car driving baddies led by David ("Buffy/Angel/Bones") Boreanaz and Tara "Psychic Network Here I Come!" Reid, who want to....oh, to hell with it. Who cares? The plot is utter gibberish, basically an excuse to put Furlong in Brandon Lee's facepaint, a job for which this tyke is woefully inadequate, since Furlong is every bit as intimidating as Gumby.

Okay, the plot is nonsense. So what else is wrong with it, the audience asks? Well, unlike Boreanaz's "Angel", I am not immortal, so I'll just stick to the main points:

1)The writing. Dreadful, just bloody dreadful. The writing in the later sequels to the "Friday the 13th" films actually seem like masterworks in comparison.

2) The editing.

First off, for all of you posting reviews and not having seen the film, what are you doing? Ever heard of actually seeing something before you review it?

This review is based soley off the film itself, not the DVD, which is not due out for another month and a half. I recently SAW the movie (unlike the other reviewers here) and here is my review of just the film. I originally rated this film 4 crows out of 5 on my site. But given the fact that so many have seen fit to pre-judge this film and rate it a one without seeing it, I have raised my rating here at Amazon to a 5 star so as to balance things out somewhat.

Finally, after what seems like a lifetime, THE CROW: WICKED PRAYER had its official premiere at the AMC Pacific Place Theatre in Seattle Washington, on Friday, June 3rd. It will play at the AMC Pacific Place for a week, then it will have a direct to video release on Tuesday, July 19th. This review is purposely low in spoilers and scene specific information. It is not my intent to spoil the movie for you, but to give you my overall opinion.

THE CROW: WICKED PRAYER is inspired by the same-name novel by Norman Partridge. The story keeps the desert setting and satanic gang element from the novel, but changes up pretty much everything else. Luc Crash and Lola Byrne (David Boreanaz and Tara Reid respectively) lead a gang called the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse (Marcus Chong, Tito Ortiz & Yuji Okumato round out the gang). They have been individually wronged and together, they seek justice. To realize this justice, they must take the blue eyes of a girl with a Native American heritage and the heart of a killer. Enter Lily Ignites the Dawn and Jimmy Cuervo (Emmanuelle Chrique and Eddie Furlong). Jimmy is about to be free from the shackles that have kept him in town.
