The Crow is a 1994 American superhero film starring Brandon Lee. These The Crow quotes speak to life and death, which is ironic given the tragedy that took place. It would be Brandon’s last performance as he died during the filming of the movie.
Which scene did Brandon Lee die in, and who shot him? Well, there is a part of the movie where Brandon’s character, Eric, is killed after he walks in on thugs beating and raping his fiance. He is shot and killed in the scene, and then later a crow taps on his tombstone. The Crow is born and Eric climbs out of the grave.
Lee had completed most of his filming before this scene, which ended in a horrible tragedy. A previous scene using the same gun had called for inert dummy cartridges fitted with bullets. However, powder and primer were not to be loaded in the revolver. These dummy cartridges provide a more authentic appearance than blank rounds and work well in close-up shots.

Did you enjoy this list of The Crow quotes?
The film’s prop crew created their own dummy bullets due to time constraints. They pulled the bullets from live rounds and dumped the powder charge, before placing the bullets back in the chamber.
However, they accidentally left the live primer in place. During filming, the revolver discharged by accident, and one of those dummy bullets was driven partway into the barrel. It went unnoticed by the crew and prop staff.
In the scene where Lee was fatally shot, by actor Michael Massee, the same gun would be shot at Lee from about 12 feet away. They loaded it with blanks since they didn’t need the appearance of real bullets, unaware that there was a bullet in the chamber. That bullet would hit Lee in the abdomen with about the same velocity as a real bullet.
He endured six hours of surgery before succumbing to his injuries. The movie was amazing, but Lee’s death cast a shadow over the film. It is an action-packed visual marvel you should check out if you haven’t seen it.
