After all, the ‘70s TV series it’s based on wasn’t very good and there have been some downright ghastly bigscreen adaptations of decades-old television shows (anybody remember 1999’s "The Mod Squad"?). Well, surprise – the "Charlie’s Angels" movie turns in to be delightfully in on its own joke. It’s a lot of absurd good fun, with gorgeous women and lots of action of both the pyrotechnic and martial arts varieties.

title: The Crow: City Of Angels function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Miramax/Dimension Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Vincent Perez, Mia Kirshner, Richard Brooks, Iggy Pop release year: 1996 film rating: Two and a half stars sound/picture: Three and a half stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein 'The Crow: City of Angels' is a follow-up (calling it a sequel implies a continuity that barely exists) to the 1994 action/fantasy-thriller 'The Crow.' The original film, whatever its merits and drawbacks, is still known principally for the tragic on-set accident that caused the death of star Brandon Lee. The new movie lacks its predecessor's bad karma, but it also is missing most of the earlier 'Crow''s sense of purpose. Indeed, 'The Crow: City of Angels' is a lot easier to appreciate if it's viewed as a long music video with a narrative thread than an actual movie with a fleshed-out plot.

title: The Crow function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Dimension Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Brandon Lee, Ernie Hudson, Michael Wincott film rating: Two and One Half Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren The Crow is a modern, gothic tale of a man who comes back from the dead to avenge his and fiancé's brutal murder. Somehow, he is brought to life by the spirit of a crow that follows him around. Once back from the dead, The Crow goes around after his killers one by one, killing them as gruesomely as he can imagine. Of course, they don't go down without a fight and they beat the hell out of him. In fact, our hero is stabbed through the chest with a sword, cut up by knives and shot approximately a million times, but since he is already dead, he can't be stopped. In the end, the bad guys all die and he goes back to the grave with his beloved.

title: The Rock (Criterion Edition) function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: Criterion Collection MPAA rating: R starring: Sean Connery, Nicolas Cage, Ed Harris, Michael Biehn, William Forsythe, John Spencer, Tony Todd, David Morse, Vanessa Marcil release year: 1996 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren 'The Rock' was one of the best thrillers of 1996, surpassing 'Mission: Impossible.' But Michael Bay's next film, 'Armageddon,' was so awesomely awful that it's easy to forget how entertaining -- if improbable -- 'The Rock' is. It's usually remembered for the spectacular, but over the top, San Francisco car chase that comes early in the proceedings. This terrific DVD set from Criterion will remind everyone what a fun time can be had on 'The Rock.'

title: Highlander Endgame function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Dimension Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Adrian Paul, Christopher Lambert, Bruce Payne, Lisa Barbuscia release year: 2000 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein I have a confession to make: I enjoyed the theatrical version of "Highlander: Endgame." Yes, the fourth "Highlander" feature film is a bit messy and there are places where its budgetary and time limitations are all too apparent, but it has a surprising amount of heart to go with a number of extremely varied, vigorous action sequences.
