The Crow: City of Angels

release year: 1996
genre: dark action/martial arts
viewing setting: theater, September 1996
what I expected: a passable sequel
what I got: one of the worst sequels ever made

synopsis: The avenging spirit of the Crow is back for more, as the girl from the first film has grown into a young lady who's in a lot of trouble.

impressions: No plot. Little action. It's not Vincent Perez' fault - he just got dealt a shitty script.

acting: Perez did okay as the Crow. Iggy Pop was one of the main bad guys. Everyone else barely registered.

final word: Unless you wear all black and paint your face like the Crow, you don't need to waste your time with this.

rating: D
