A Steal of a Deal
on December 26, 2007
This DVD set includes both the brilliant urban fantasy NIGHT WATCH as well as the more toned down DAY WATCH.
NIGHT WATCH follows Anton Gorodetsky (Konstantin Khabensky) as he discovers he isn't a normal human and is an Other with magical powers. Anton chooses to join the forces of Light and spends his time hunting vampires, trying to remove a witch's curse, and stop the end of the world from happening.
DAY WATCH continues the story begun in NIGHT WATCH. It takes place two years later and deals more with the internal struggles of Anton as he struggles with the demons of his past while continuing to do the right thing. In the meantime, someone has framed Anton for the murders of Dark Ones. Anton finds himself on the run while trying to locate the mysterious Chalk of Fate that could enable him to reverse the wrong decisions of his life.
NIGHT WATCH and DAY WATCH form the first two films of a planned trilogy and owning them together in one set for the price of one film is a great bargain. Of course, you might just want to wait a few years until after the third film of the series, TWILIGHT WATCH is out and then just get all three.
