Flexibility is most quickly developed by building strength in extended positions. For this, you need full range-of-movement strength exercises (hamstring and adductor pulldowns, flies, etc) and isometric stretches (also called PNF or CRAC). When you sufficiently develop flexibility in your kicking antagonists (the muscles which resist during the movement), you should focus on building strength in the agonists (the muscles which contract and lift the leg). In a reverse crescent kick, these include the hip flexors and abdominals. Simply practicing the kick slowly (1/2 to 1/4 normal speed) will do for starters.

A video of the op attempting the kick would be quite helpful.

Stretch- take your time and relax
it will come with time and practice- if you want to do it quickly in the near future you should increase your flexibility.
you will get there

Try improving your back kick and being able to kick with it.
It helped a little for me, and I got better at it.

lift your knee , make sure u dont start kicking until your hip is about 15 degrees off target then your hip will allow your leg to go in the right direction and height. you should post a vid of u doing the kick, then we could see your mistake within it.

Chamber it with your knee above your belt and use a snapping motion as you turn, in my experience it's more effective as a set up or defensive maneuver than a strike. Thats just me though.
