Added DiffLines:

* {{Glurge}}: The flashbacks of Eric and Shelly's love are so overly romanticized it makes them more caricatures than characters.


Added DiffLines:

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: The film has not aged well, especially in comparison to later superhero films like The Dark Knight and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

* WhatAnIdiot: [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Crow_%281994_film%29#Death_of_Brandon_Lee Lee's tragic death]] was a result of a simply ''staggering'' array of horrible coincidences, any of which could and ''should'' have been averted. The crew attempting to ''make their own dummy bullets'' (by prying the bullets out of live magnum rounds, emptying the powder, then reinserting the bullets) because they didn't have time to acquire professionally-made ones was probably the most egregious, right next to sending their firearms specialist home ''before'' filming the scene where Eric is shot to death and delegating responsibility for the guns to a clueless prop assistant. They were probably lucky to escape a criminal negligence case!

* {{Narm}}: Some of Eric's dialogue in both movie and comic can fall flat, particularly when he starts going really off the deep end after the Gin Mill. Of course, he is pretty nuts, so this might be the singular case where Narm is a JustifiedTrope.

* DesignatedVillain: Gideon, whose only crimes are being an opportunist (it's not as if ''he'' killed all those newlyweds off of whom countless criminals pawned wedding rings) and trying to stop a weirdo with a painted face from intruding on his property late at night. But that doesn't stop Eric from vindictively torching his pawn shop with gasoline.
-->'''Eric:''' Each one of these...is a life. A life you helped destroy.
** It's even worse in the comic, where Eric [[spoiler:cold-bloodedly shoots Gideon dead with his own Walther handgun]].
** Gideon does, however, clearly know that people have been robbed, beaten, raped and possibly killed for all of these items. His reaction to spotting blood on the purse one of the villains sells him is only annoyance that it makes it obviously stolen and impossible to sell. He may not do the killing, but he clearly enabled the killers and was at best indifferent to their crimes. Tin-Tin also calls him a child molester, but we don't know if that's true.

Added DiffLines:

* CrossesTheLineTwice: The Crow's jesus joke, not helped by the fact that he's saying it to Funboy while the latter is high on morphine and shooting at him to no effect as The Crow movies in for the kill.
--> '''The Crow:''' Jesus Christ? Stop me if you heard this one. "Jesus Christ walks into a motel. -gunshot- [[MajorInjuryUnderreaction Ow,]] he hands the inkeeper three nails and he asks -gunshot-.
--> '''Funboy:''' Don't you ever fucking die!!?
--> '''The Crow:''' Would you put me up for the night?!"
