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.
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.Read more ›
