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!

Amazon.com

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.

As with many Crow fans, the first movie is one of my favorite films of all time while the second left a somewhat bad taste in my mouth. The reviews I had read here had given me hope that this Crow film would be better than the second. Unfortunately, it's actually worse.. It is basically a made-for-cable style vigilante movie that attempts to cash in on the Crow name. You've got everything here you would see on any generic late night cable movie..unnecessary gratuitous strip club scenes, plenty of gun battles, a thin plot, and an overabundance of lifeless acting.
You basically start off with Eric Mabius as Alex Corvin, a generic hero whose happy-go-lucky demeanor and undeveloped character make any attempt at displaying emotion appear completely fake. As in the other films, the hero is back to avenge his dead girlfriend. We have the usual Crow movie flashbacks..although in this case, thin acting and a lack of chemistry give the appearance that they had been together for about 2 weeks before her murder... There is simply no sense of anger or pain..or anything for that matter...
Then we throw in Kirsten Dunst, who just isn't given much to work with here as the victim's sister who tries to help Mabius. Fred Ward's made-for-cable impersonation of a bad guy was obviously a bad choice for the film. To complement the acting, we also are give a thin script full of obvious plot twists that just ends up being filler between the beginning and the rather obvious end of the film.
On the technical side of things, the filming and editing have completely murdered the sense of darkness from the first film that even ocassionally appeared in the second. The use of computer effects on cutscenes gives the film all of the substance of a music video or a screensaver.
In short, watching this film was like watching any generic made-for-cable action/suspense movie. If you're a fan of the Crow series, you may find that this film falls way short of your expecations.

The legend that is the basis for "The Crow - Salvation" claims that when a person dies, there are times that the emotional burden they carry is too much to bring into the land of the dead. In these cases, their souls are returned to the land of the living by a crow and reunited to their bodies, so they can tie up the loose ends. This premise is a wonderful setup, with many opportunities for variety, emotion, and even a little action.
When the major character in the film has returned from the dead to take care of unresolved emotional issues, you would expect a film with heart. You would expect soul-searching, pain, anguish, and redemption in every corner. Indeed, this is what made the original "Crow" such a wonderful film, and the potential is here, as well. The final film, however, appears to be the result of conflicting visions.
Chip Johannessen's screenplay has all the emotional potential of the first film, in all of its painful beauty. When, at one point, a character wishes to be dead, the hero uses one of his special abilities to show just what it would be like, telling her that this is not what she wants.
Quite often, though, director Bharat Nalluri seems to downplay all of this, shooting it as if he didn't care, using the crude and gritty hand-held camera when slick and atmospheric would have definitely been better to create the feeling of pathos. Instead, he turns his attention once again to the action, where "City of Angels" also got lost. Why is it that Hollywood is less afraid of bullets than it is of tears? What is worse is that Nalluri barely even can choreograph a decent fight scene, so the impact is entirely lost there, as well.
