comic book movie made before comic book movies were all the rage. It takes place in a dark, moody dramatized Detroit where it rains all the time and criminals rule the city. The story is about a rock star who is murdered on Halloween, Devil's Night as it is called in Detroit. His girlfriend is raped and dies in the hospital. A year later, he rises from the dead and comes back to avenge his death. Strangely, this film came to represent a number of different things, as it was made in 1994, the year the grunge music movement was more or less put to rest. Also, the star of the film, Brandon Lee, Bruce Lee's son, was killed while making the film. The most memorable quotes from "The Crow" really reflect the character's pain.
"Greed is for amateurs. Disorder, chaos, anarchy: now that's fun!" This "The Crow" quote is said by Top Dollar, one of the main bad guys who our hero character, Eric Draven, must kill to get total vengeance. Shortly after this quote is said, Draven gets his revenge.
"It can't rain all the time…" This is a theme reflected regularly by Eric Draven through "The Crow," talking about the inherent depression synonymous with the weather raining all the time. This quote means that even though things are often bad, they will ultimately get better. They have to.
"Little things used to mean so much to Shelley. I used to think they were trivial. Trust me, nothing is trivial." This "The Crow" quote is said by Eric Draven while reminiscing about his relationship with the love of his life who was killed. This shows his love for her, how much he misses her and what he has learned from her death.
"Take your shot Fun Boy. You got me dead bang…" This "The Crow" quote is said by Eric Draven right before he kills the heroin junkie character Fun Boy, who has a gun pulled on him. Fun Boy shoots and hits Eric Draven right in the chest. The problem for Fun Boy is that Draven is already dead. Things get worse from there for Fun Boy.
"What are you supposed to be? A clown or something?" This quote from "The Crow" is said by Sarah, the young girl who Draven and Shelley used to take care of when they were alive. She says then when she first sees Draven as the The Crow, his face painted, ready for revenge.
