The Crow | 1994 | R | - 4.7.8

Brandon Lee's last film, about a murdered rocker who comes back to avenge himself and his dead fiancee.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Two women are shown nude from the back. A man's nude torso is shown. A quick shot of a topless woman, several cleavage shots, and a woman in a negligee. A couple of kissing scenes, neither of which lead to sex on screen.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A man's dead body is shown from a distance and a woman is shown writhing in pain and bloody (there are also flashbacks of her being beaten and raped). A group of thugs spend their time tearing places up and then setting them on fire or blowing them up. There are several fight scenes, all of which end in death and are very bloody, while a variety of murder weapons are used: knives, swords, syringes, guns, exploding cars. We see two bloody eyeballs, one being burned, and the other is tossed around. A huge hole is shot through a man's hand, and he actually peers through it. A crow pecks a woman's eyes out. A man is shown impaled after falling from a roof top.

LANGUAGE 8 - The F-word and its derivations are used about 50 times, as well as many scatological terms, anatomical references and milder profanities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Death, rape, incest, drug use, the metaphysical.

MESSAGE - If you love someone and lose them, the best way to remember them is to keep loving them.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
