Jimmy Cuervo is a down-on-his-luck ex-con living in a polluted mining town on a reservation that would run him out of town if not for the remainder of his probation. With his time nearly finished, he plans to start a new life with his girlfriend Lily , and leave the town for good. But Luc Crash and Lola Byrne head up a local gang of local Satanists who murder Jimmy and Lily in a brutally ritualistic slaying that they hope will conjure the rebirth of the Antichrist. When the legend of the Crow returns Jimmy from the dead, Jimmy heads out on a one-man path of vengeance that will lead him to El Nino, the leader of the gang that Luc and Lola are in.Written by
Rather great original telling of the crow mythology-Furlong was amazing in the film...
By no means a perfect film although by far the most amazing in the series bar the first. There is something about Wicked Prayer that is so cool, an i think id have to say it is Edward Furlong. This guy really does make a good crow. Maybe because unlike the other previous Crows, he doesn't pretend or act like Brandon Lee, instead we have a much angst an angry Crow, who doesn't go out of his way to b nice to someone that isn't guilty. It makes for a difference in plot and story. Okay Boreanaz was alright up to a point, then just started to act a bit too Angelous(don't get me wrong i love Angel, an think Boreanaz is great in his series, its just that he overacts in this as Angelous). Dennis Hopper was awful, over-acting every word and statement he had to make. Sure it didn't help him that his dialogue was fairly crap and to a certain extent pointless and Tara Reid just can't act. The story its self is rather entertaining and adds originality to the crow story instead of it just being the usual re-telling of the 1st, like city of angels. I would just love it tho if the love theme from the awful third film made it into this, then at least you wouldn't have such an amazing theme linked to an awe-full film. Oh well, the music wasn't that bad, tho nor was it good. Anyway, moan the furlong, this film has certainly made me a fan of his. He was amazing, in a hugely under-rated film. I'd advise any one to watch this cause it was actually a great film.
