The Crow / by Rollie Agado

Sunday Nights are always a pickle for me…  I have a hard time falling asleep and it didn’t help that I didn’t get around to watching my movie of the day until 10pm.

The subject of “the Crow” had come up a few days prior to me seeing the movie again… I had a conversation with my friend Ted who said to me that he hadn’t seen it yet.

This surprised me because the film (backdrop of story) is set in Detroit, Michigan.

I can’t remember the last time I saw the from start to finish but I’m thinking it had to have been around 12 or so years…   I was really curious to see if it held up almost 20 years after its theatrical release.

Much to my surprise the look of the film felt pretty good.  The city depicted in the movie looks nothing like Detroit but I found myself enjoying the soundtrack all over again.

The movie is about a guy (Brandon Lee) by the name of Eric Draven, who was murdered on Halloween night in his loft with his fiancé. He’s come back from the dead (with the assistance of a Crow) to get his vengeance against everyone whose wronged him.

Eric Draven, quickly learns that he must right a number of wrongs (6 or 7 people total?) while he’s back in our dimension.

He get’s a little help from Ernie Hudson (the Black Ghostbuster) along the way too…

If you haven’t seen this movie, I highly recommend you check it out.  Especially Ted.
