A Different Crow Takes Flight: A Review of The Crow: Salvation

2024-03-30

“The Crow: Salvation” (2000) is a sequel to the cult classic “The Crow,” but with a twist. This time, the Crow is Alex Corvis (Eric Mabius, not Brandon Lee), a man wrongly convicted of murder and resurrected by a crow to solve the real crime and avenge his girlfriend’s death.

The movie takes an interesting approach, weaving together elements of action, crime, fantasy, and mystery. While it lacks the raw emotional punch of the original, “Salvation” offers a unique spin on the revenge narrative. The supernatural elements are toned down a bit, with Alex appearing more self-aware and even cracking jokes at times. This may not resonate with fans who loved the brooding intensity of Brandon Lee’s portrayal.

However, the film does have its merits. The mystery element is engaging, keeping you guessing about the true culprit. The action sequences, while not overly elaborate, are satisfying. The performances are decent, with Kirsten Dunst providing a sympathetic turn as Alex’s love interest.

Overall, “The Crow: Salvation” is a decent sequel that tries to carve its own path. It won’t surpass the original for many fans, but it’s worth a watch for those looking for a slightly different take on the Crow mythology.
