The Raven was very creative and kept you watching. It was more chilling than gruesome or gory. I recommend this movie for anyone who loves Edgar Allen Poe.

Reminded me of the Sherlock Holmes reboot only with more blood and less plot and characters. It's simply middle-of-the-road thrills here - nothing stands out but nothing is utterly terrible. If you're bored and nothing else looks good, you may as well check it out - just don't expect to be riveted by the performances or story.

what if the end reveals the murderer as a presence of ruin in all writers life, and after fleeing america, he takes another form, to go and destroy what a writer composes. and so on... the real ending is dissapointing, on the same line with all the movie.sad!

The Raven - A Mystery Not Worth Solving

'The Raven' is a mix of fact and fiction that uses some of the known elements of Edgar Allen Poe's last hours and pieces of his actual literary career as a basis for this complicated mystery. The story itself is pure fiction. Set in 1849's Baltimore, the film shows an erratic and nearly destitute Poe looking to milk every last benefit of his celebrity even though he has clearly worn out his welcome in most quarters. A string of unusual murders appear to tie in with several of the writer's earlier macabre stories, and he finds himself drawn into helping the police catch the perpetrator by deciphering the clues intentionally left behind.

Director James McTeigue ('V For Vandetta') helms 'The Raven', and he does a respectable job of trying to capture the look and feel of the mid-19th cent...
