The Crow is a 1994 horror film directed by Alex Proyas and starring the late Brandon Lee in his first and final lead performance.[1] The film follows a man who's brutally murdered as he comes back from the dead.

During production in 1993, Brandon Lee was on the set filming an action scene. In the middle of a stunt, a gun that was loaded with blank cartridges suffered a malfunction. The spent blank casing from an earlier shot was jammed into the barrel. Upon using the gun again, the second blank went off and propelled the cartridge from the earlier shot forward, which hit Lee. He was rushed to the hospital and died later that day.[2]

His death was caught on camera and was allegedly destroyed under the insistence of the director. However, some of the cameramen claim otherwise, including one who even claimed to own a copy of the death footage. This footage has never been released or seen, and no legitimate stills from the footage have been found either, which suggests that these claims may be fake.

I believe the photo in question turned out to be either a fake or taken from another movie he did. Besides, wasn't Lee shot in the chest and not face, so why would blood be covering his face.

Comment from the old wiki (I don't usually lurk there, I just remembered this from a while ago): "That photo was debunked years ago, it's from a production still of the film Legacy of Rage, merely cropped and rotated. "

Why didn't they use NERF guns or something?

That is actually a good idea, plus they could get sponsored.

I'm just picturing this gritty action movie where everyone is firing nerf guns around, and people getting pelted with sticky darts in slow motion lol
