Sergeant Albrecht were assigned for the case. 1 year later, Eric awakened from death n climbed out of his grave. he returned to their apartment n had a flashback of what happened back then. he realized he knew those guys, n when he discovered that since he was back from death, he was immune to physical damage. guided by the crow, he set out to find their murderers.
this old film is one of the best Classics, containing the most original Goth ever! so far it was said to be the best out of its sequels, with mesmerizing performance from Brandon Lee. the visual especially, were awesome. it was action packed, dark, somewhat bloody n violent. the additional darkness that was added to this film, was Brandon's death during a gun accident while filming The Crow (1994). it happened when they were shooting that part where he walked into the apartment n saw Shelly being raped. the team was running behind schedule, which caused them to neglect the preparation for a gun shot. instead of firing an empty cartridge, Brandon was shot in the abdomen. he fell immediately. after the director yelled "Cut!" n he still didn't stand up, they realized that he was really wounded. he was rushed to the hospital, followed by a 6-hour operation, n was pronounced dead after. like his father, Bruce Lee (1940-1973), Brandon (1965-1993) died young, but lived forever as a legend.
