The Crow: Salvation ★★ 2000 (R)

Third in the series of films based on James O'Barr's comic book finds Alex Corvis (Mabius) wrongly convicted of murdering girlfriend Lauren Randall (O'Keefe). He's executed on his 21st birthday but returns as the Crow to seek revenge on those who wronged him. Alex convinces Erin (Dunst), Lauren's teenaged sister, of his innocence and they team up. Rather than revitalizing the franchise, this one basically got dumped by the studio, although the performances and the production are worth your time. 102m/C VHS, DVD . Eric Mabius, Kirsten Dunst, Fred Ward, Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, William Atherton, Dale Midkiff, Grant Shaud; D: Bharat Nalluri; W: Chip Johan-nessen; C: Carolyn Chen; M: Marco Beltrami.
