The Crow: Salvation

2

Kirsten Dunst - now there's somebody who doesn't have trouble paying her council tax. But maybe life wasn't always this easy. What else could explain her decision to appear in this thoroughly un-called-for second sequel to 1994's cult comic crossover?

Perhaps she was limbering up for future superhero glory by playing the sister of The Crow's dead girlfriend and helping the ass-kicking zombie (Eric Mabius) find the killer. Director Bharat Nalluri (occasional helmer of Spooks and Hustle) certainly drags her through the wringer, assailing her with dumb dialogue, music from Rob Zombie and Fred Ward as a bent copper who believes in the undead. It may be better than Crow 2, but what kind of achievement is that?
