From the "You've got to be kidding me" department....
Edward Furlong as the Crow. Really.
Or, to paraphrase Princess Leia, "Aren't you a little short to be an avenging demon?"

GEEZ, I loved The Crow (original) and even had some time for the stylised look of part II. The third one may as well have not been a Crow film but was almost watchable... Wicked Prayer looks weaker still. Damn - way to wreck a decent idea!!

It's just another franchise that they've decided to milk to death. Unfortunately, it's far too common in Hollywood. *sigh*

Blah. A lot of people liked this film. So, I don't know what you all are smokin. And give eddie a break.

1. IMDB users so far have given it a 4 out of 10 rating. Not good.
2. Limited theatrical release. The studio didn't even believe it could bring in money in the theatres. Not a good sign.
3. Edward Furlong. I liked him in his earlier (or earliest) stuff. But he has a very limited range. Most of his characters are whiners. (At least, that's my perception.) And, yes, I've seen a lot of his movies, including Three Blind Mice and Pecker.

Eddie is a very good actor, he acts with deep sensitivity that feels heartbreaking. He is right for that big part in the Crow 4. I can't think of anyone who will suit if not him.

The role of the crow for eddie is really cool. His piercing looks is enough to make him an avenging demon. And of course his acting ability is superb for the whole concept of the movie. This is a great comeback for his career. can't wait to seet this movie. Im really excited.

I like Ed. I think he did the best he could with what he was given. But no sequel will ever live up to the first and that is what everyone keeps expecting. Ain't gonna happen. Can't recreate the magic Brandon started. Don't diss Ed, he wasn't the problem here.Now if you wanna get me started on Tara Reid, there's another story!!!!!!!!!

Loved Eddie in this. Looks, style, acting, the whole of it. (That boy can act!) Can’t imagine anyone better for the part. And the love story was awesome! So sweet... and the two lovers were perfect together. Either you get this movie or you don’t... and I -- and many people that I know that do not bother with the internet -- did. You rock Eddie… Now & Always!!!

I totally agree with you about the original crow film. Brandon Lee was phenominal and i really feel that they should have let that be the ONLY crow film if only because of what happened to Brandon. I HATED the second one, and thought it was trash. the second one i really didnt think was so bad and as for this one, i think they could have done something with it but the actors that they used for this really didnt have the spark and charisma that brandon or alot of other actors would have. I was never too happy about pressman films putting out more crow films but if they could have gotten someone like say johnny depp or maybey heath ledger, who are both fantastic actors and a decent experienced director then i think they could have been great movies. Brandon was and still will be the best though, no matter what.

What was it like stepping into this role of Jimmy Cuervo? Did you go out of your way to make it yours? What's that like for you?
Edward Furlong: It's sort of like a really slow process that Lance Mungia, the director, and I went through. Initially, I was just attracted to the script because it was The Crow and I got to put on some leather pants and kick people's ass.
Me and Lance just went over the script with a fine tooth comb and just really kinda made the character work for me really well. From the initial beginning we wanted to do something different, we wanted to make him sort of more of an anti-hero. I guess you could just simply put it, the pissed off Crow.
Edward Furlong: There's a lot that attracted me to this one... I mean, first of all, I was a really big fan of the first one. Subsequently, I saw the other two afterwards. I really liked that in the beginning it showed... the other Crow movies never really showed the pre-story, kinda like the first act of the movie you actually see the relationship between Jimmy Cuervo and Emmanuelle Chiriqui's character, Lily. There's a lot that attracted me to the idea of it... getting into the character.
What was it like for you... okay let's be honest, this isn't Little Odessa, this is an action movie, what was it like for you to do that? Did you enjoy doing the more physical stuff?
Edward Furlong: Yeah dude, it was like a real first for me. I never had gotten to really play an action hero. It was kinda weird at first because I'm not really built like an action hero in many ways, I guess. The physical part of it was great because I got to get in shape and that was like my job. Which was awesome.
The stunt coordinator was great. Just stepping into the Crow outfit and kicking ass... if that's my job, I can't complain.
How do you go about choosing the roles you play? You do a lot of different kinds of roles? Little Odessa, Detroit Rock City, T2? What is your thought process when you're approached about a movie?
Edward Furlong: I wish I could give like a great answer... I've been lucky to do a lot of great films; some of them not so great. Usually, I'm just simply attracted to the script. Attracted to the character. Or (laughing)... the money's good. I don't know man, it's kinda like a mixture of all of those.
I love the honesty because usually you get a lot of canned responses, but that was a beautiful punctuation mark on what you just said.
Edward Furlong: Thanks man.
Of all the roles you've played what is the one you kind of look at with the most fondness?
Edward Furlong: It's really hard for me to watch myself. Usually, when I'm flipping through and I see myself, I flip passed it. I'm like, "Oh fu*!" and friend who's with me is like "No man, let's watch it!" and I'm like "Goddamnit!". So sometimes I'll watch them, if they're like on cable or something. I'm like my own worst critic these days...
Especially when I watch my older stuff with my prepubescent, young voice. I'm like "Oh my God... what was I thinking?" But I remember jerking off 20 times a day during those days. I will tell you I was pretty amazed, not necessarily just on my performance, but the effect that American History X had on people.
Edward Furlong: I've had people come up to me and say that that movie changed their lives. Like really deep things. I had a lot of fun working on Pecker with John Waters, because I'm such a John Waters fan. I don't know man, that's a tough one.
What happened with T3?
Edward Furlong: I'll just say I was into other things at that time. I wanted to do the film. I'd say I was caught up with things that were bad for me at that point.
I'm an Orange County guy. I grew up in Fountain Valley and have spent time in Huntington Beach... and the look that you have in that film (American History X), and how you played that character was so spot on. How'd you get that look of the young skinhead kid?
Edward Furlong: At the time we were making it, we didn't really know exactly how that movie was going to effect people. There's a lot of harsh things said, just doing the scenes themselves, the dialogue is like "Oh, my God!", it's a little wild. I haven't really seen that movie quite yet. I went on the internet (phone goes dead for a moment)... I mean I'm not a racist or anything like that, but I found out that there's a huge, huge subculture out there of racism. You can go to like army surplus stores and find weird country music that's like useless. I remember I found this song, "My Wife Ran Off With A Nigger". Like, that's really the name of the song. I don't know man, meeting certain people... I just kinda wanted to portray it. That's what the movie is about is hate. I guess that's kind of a feeling we can all understand to a basic degree is hate. Hatred of another race of people. I don't know, a lot of different kind of aspects go into playing a character like that.
Did you listen to the band Screwdriver at all to get prepared for that? I only ask just because as far as like neo-Nazi, racist bands they're like The Beatles in that subculture?
Edward Furlong: Oh really? No, I never listened to them.
What's next for you?
Edward Furlong: I have a movie called The Visitation that I did. Robby Henson directed it. It's hard to say what it's about without giving it away. It's kind of a psychological horror film. Jimmy and Judy which is an independent that I did with this two first time directors(Randall Rubin and John Schroder) that I'm really proud of. It's kinda like a road trip movie that sorta reminds me of Badlands or something like that.
That's a great movie.
Edward Furlong: Yeah, I love Badlands. Those are the ones that I'm excited about. I did another movie called Cruel World. Which is just me running around, chasing hot chicks... trying to kill them. (Laughter) Which is fun. That's about it, man.

Eddie did great in this movie, but i think the writers could have been more creative in writing a better script. I mean dude you could have made it the crow with a new look. Like not the clothes, but like david turning in to satan was just so unbeliveable.

it was interesting to see a crow movie that added a little "supernatural flare" y'know with all the antichrist and whatnot. And Edward made a perfect Crow.

The movie was ok. I liked it but I would rate it at about 5 out of 10. I was disappointed to see the rating of 2.7 at IMDB.

Please say it isn't so, that would be the worst casting of all-time in a comic book movie, even surpassing Daredevil. Brandon Lee was so good in the role, the franchise just needs to be retired on the big screen.

I liked this movie, it's a bit unfair to be so harsh by compairing it to the original cause of course nothings going to come near to as good as that was. But this movie was very good, Eddie did a good job I thought and David is really in his element when playing a evil guy, wish he'd play more bad guys.
