    The Crow imbues its comic brutalism with emotion and satire. Too raw and pulpy, it probably shouldn't be regarded as a memorial to Brandon Lee. But as an obsessive rock 'n' roll comic book movie shocker of loony intensity, it stands, or flies, by itself.

    If he had to die so soon, this movie is the best and most appropriate sendoff Lee could have hoped for.

    It is a stunning work of visual style - the best version of a comic book universe I've seen - and Brandon Lee clearly demonstrates in it that he might have become an action star, had he lived.

    If the arrival of The Crow - a visually dazzling and hyperkinetic action movie - is an occasion to mourn the loss of Lee, it is also ample reason to celebrate the protean gifts of its director, Alex Proyas.

    It is a dark, lurid revenge fantasy and not the breakthrough, star-making movie some people have claimed. But it is a genre film of a high order, stylish and smooth.

    Brandon Lee's swan song is a kinetic, pounding, adrenalized feast for the senses, if not the psyche. Bursting with startling images, eclectic staging, and gorgeous neo-gothic set design.

    It succeeds in bringing O'Barr's comic-book vision to life, but there's little else going on behind the graphic razzle-dazzle and the moody, ominous soundtrack.

The Crow 1994 "O Corvo",é fenomenal sombrio e épico. Brandon Lee está fenomenal com uma atuação tipo Coringa Heath Ledger nos anos 90's.
    Michael Wincott está excelente como o antagonista.Rochelle Davis e Ernie Hudson estão ótimos como a pequena garota e o policial colega do corvo respectivamente.
    Ótimo Filme.
