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.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a sharper and more defined picture when compared to the previously released, non-anamorphic DVD.

Reason #92 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Widescreen Review is the only home theatre magazine that puts the reader first. All magazines must cater to advertisers to stay in business, but at WSR you never feel that this article or this review was generated because advertising needed a little boost right now. WSR also provides the depth that I like in its reporting and analysis. I still have every copy that I purchased and that's testament to my feeling of the statue of coverage of equipment and movies for the home movie enthusiast.

Some of us do truly appreciate your dedication to doing it right. Thanks for producing an excellent magazine.
