My Review Of "The Crow: Wicked Prayer" (I felt compelled to share)

Just watched "The Crow: Wicked Prayer" on Netflix... (Ugh!)

That said... my viewing experience compelled me to immediately pen a review about it and I wanted to share said review with you:

"I was definitely torn as to whether to give "The Crow: Wicked Prayer" 2 or 3 Stars.
On the 2-Star hand: I didn't like "Wicked Prayer" even remotely as much as its predecessors. And, sure, perhaps TC:WP does delve more deeply into the native mythology of The Crow than those earlier films, but (and it's a Big "but"): The editing sucked. The flashbacks would have helped to make more sense of this mishmash if they'd appeared earlier in the film. As it is, the viewer is left with little idea of what - if any - relationship exists between the main characters until halfway into the film. Also, I'm a girl who LOVES a well-choreographed and expertly shot fight scene featuring skilled actors. That said, the fight scenes in TC:WP... sucked. And the acting?  Well... you get the picture.

On the 3-Star hand: I Love The Crow (Brandon, may he Rest In Peace, Rocked). From what I could tell, Boreanaz did the best he could with what he had to work with - which wasn't much - but he definitely had all of the best lines of the film (he plays a charming villain). Tara Reid was gorgeous, but her acting was... er, flat (Apologies). Edward Furlong is interesting to look at, but should've taken acting lessons ("Acting Is Believing" is a great book for acting students, IMHO).

Check TC:WP out IF you're Really Bored and in desperate need of a distraction AND you can't - for the Life of you - find anything better of interest. (9/28/11 - SFSK8r)"
