      Critics Consensus

      The Crow: City of Angels is a sloppy pretender that captures neither the mood nor energy of the original.

      Mali R Turned it off after 15 minutes because the main actor was making me cringe in the original Brando Lee done a fantastic job of being serious and emotional while also making the character funny and badass while acting out his revenge he's easy to route for you can't help but fall in love with Eric but in this there's already a shadow cast over the movie due to the tragedy that occurred with the first one and not only that but the actor that portrays the main character doesn't hold a candle to the acting capabilities of the first crow movie and due to this being the sequel it's going to be compared and I understand that compared to the first anything less than great would not have been acceptable but they could've at least attempted to make it watchable the only improvement this movie made from the first was the actor who played Sarah but that wasn't hard anyone who is able to display an emotion is an improvement on the original actor as she just looked bored the whole movie Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review Honest D This movie has no redeeming value whatsoever. A cynical attempt to cash in that failed utterly. The fact that this movie just plain sucks is one thing but the extra added issue that it was a sloppy unimaginative attempt by the greezier side if Hollywood to make money that they did not deserve should be enough to change your mind if your actually considering watching this. I'd rather eat a poop sandwich then ever see this movie again. I watched it so that you don't have to. Your welcome. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/20/24 Full Review Arc G I saw this before seeing the first crow, so where most people saw this as a lane sequel it was my starting point which made the original a chefs kiss Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Starts out heavy but delivers a letdown ending. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review christopher c. m It was at least creative that they created a new person to become the Crow instead of coming up with a dumb reason for Draven to come back. That said considering the tragedy connected to the first movie and this came out only 2 years after Brandon Lee's tragic passing, it feels like a heartless cash grab. Trying to recapture lightning in a bottle. That said some of the villains were a tad over the top acting wise. But it was kinda of cheesy, over the top cheesy fun. As cold as it was for the studios to make this so soon after Brandon's death, it is worth checking out. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Unfortunately still the best of the sequels Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Even for teens hooked on the grandiloquence of death-metal masochism, the movie may seem closer to an endless Sunday in church. Rated: D Jul 6, 2010 Full Review Joe Leydon Variety Stunningly awful. May 3, 2007 Full Review Time Out Although the setting has moved from Detroit to LA, the stylised urban wasteland, morbid atmosphere and basic plot remain the same. Feb 9, 2006 Full Review Emilie Black JoBlo's Movie Network Visually, it’s still a stunning film, the soundtrack still rules, but the acting and cgi are not on point and they hurt the film as a whole. Rated: 7/10 Sep 21, 2023 Full Review Tom Cassidy Common Sense Media It's a story that never takes flight, while the constant "cawing" of an actual crow in nearly every scene only adds to the irritating experience. Rated: 1/5 Nov 16, 2022 Full Review Gena Radcliffe The Spool The most important thing you need to know about City of Angels is that it's the exact same movie as The Crow.
