“Despite the visionary brilliance and hip brutality, THE CROW — whose closing dedication reads, ‘For Brandon and Eliza’ — is saying that love never dies. We’ve heard that before. It’s Lee, with probing intelligence and passionate heart, who moves us to believe it.” (Rolling Stone)
“Filled with style and dark, lurid energy, THE CROW is an action-packed visual feast that also has a soul in the performance of the late Brandon Lee.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
