The Crow: City of Angels | 1996 | R | - 7.9.7

The sequel to "The Crow" has Vincent Perez as a man who dies and comes back from death to set wrongs right.

SEX/NUDITY 7 - Sexual innuendo, two women are engaging in S&M: in bondage leather and one drips hot wax on the other while she writhes. We see many bare breasts, an orgy has people having sex standing up (mostly while clothed). A man masturbates in a peepshow.

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - A man and boy are shot to death by a crowd (we see this scene in flashback many times). Explosions, falls, rioting, people shot with guns -- sometimes multiple times. A man is injected up his nose (offscreen), a man is drilled in the eye (offscreen), a man's eyes are squeezed out (offscreen) and we later see his bloody, eyeless corpse. Fistfights and beatings which sometimes result in blood. Men are impaled a couple of times, a man is nearly hung, various stabbings, martial arts fighting. A woman's back is audibly broken and she's then thrown out a window and becomes a puddle of blood. A crow is tortured to death and lays in a pool of blood. A man dies while engulfed in flames.

LANGUAGE 7 - 25+ F-words, many scatological references, a few mild obscenities and anatomical references.

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.
