Consensus: The Crow: City of Angels is a sloppy pretender that captures neither the mood nor energy of the original.

Vincent Perez is game, but he--nor anyone involved in this sloppy production--can erase the fond memories of the late Brandon Lee.

The Crow: City of Angels suffers from the greatest sin in movie making; too many hands in the editing cookie jar. Had the film that Tim Pope shot been allowed… More
