When the first The Crow-film was released it was extremely hyped, mostly as a result of the death of actor Brandon Lee during filming, something which surrounded the film with a powerful mystery, especially the creation of James O'Barr's tragic super hero. What's more, the film stands out as one of the most successful attempts at transferring the stylized and violent city scenery - with its pitch black, undefined metropolis with gloomy contours and coarsely hewn characters from comic-strip action series - to the screen. It may even be a cinematic equivalent to Frank Miller's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, with its sombre depiction of schizophrenia and obsession, rather than the Batman films themselves. Furthermore, it succeeded in manifesting one of the 90s most perfect of super heroes with its ''the Crow'', a mixture of rock star and angel of death.
