Story Synopsis:
In the thrilling sequel to The Crow, Perez stars as Ashe who, along with his young son, is brutally killed by a drug cartel. Resurrected by a hypnotic crow to exact vengeance on his killers, he finds help and comfort in the beautiful Sara (Mia Kirshner) who was young when the crow helped Draven seek revenge on his killers. Fans of The Crow will be pleased with the same haunting music score by Graeme Revell and production design by Alex McDowell. However, The Crow: City Of Angels nearly duplicates the storyline of its predecessor. (Suzanne Hodges)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a sharper and more defined picture when compared to the previously released, non-anamorphic DVD. Viewed alone, the stylized picture is sharp and detailed, with excellent contrast and shadow delineation. Sometimes, images appear softly focused or undefined. Colors are vivid and well balanced within the appropriately dark picture. There are a few scenes that appear slightly digital, but overall, images are quite solid. (Suzanne Hodges)
