Editorial Reviews

Like The Matrix, Day Watch combines cutting-edge digital effects and mind-blowing action to create a stunningly original world. This Unrated Edition takes you on an even wilder ride with more intense thrills and incredible effects.

Only one thing stands between peace and Armageddon: the supernatural agents of Day Watch, who fight to control the armies of light and darkness. When the son of a senior Day Watch officer turns to the darkness, forces beyond the imagination are unleashed and the fate of the world hangs in the balance!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable sci-fi flick-great action and tension October 31, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was a highly enjoyable movie. Now, mind you, it has little to do with the book series outside of the same characters - it was (very, extremely) loosely adapted from the latter part of the "Night Watch" novel, so don't expect it to at all relate to "Day Watch" the book. Like the first movie, there was a lot of great action and watching Anton get his butt kicked all over the place - which hey, that's why we love him, right? Not to mention the whole scene at Yegor's party. But you'll have to watch it to see that - it's just a good thing the old witch wasn't holding a grudge after her 12 years in the zoo as a toad (definitely HAVE to WATCH IT *grin*).

We watched it in Russian with the subtitles. They weren't as much a part of the movie as the original - but they still occasionally were created so be a part of the scenery.

(EDIT): After watching the added features, I am even more impressed with this movie. The birthday party scene was filmed in a most unique manner. The director simply rounded up a bunch of people (if I recall correctly, it was a business conference) and gave them free food and drink. After a couple of hours, when everyone was nice and buzzed, they started filtering in the actors and filming. This sort of off-the-cuff manner of filming was an enormous risk but it paid off brilliantly - most of the people in that scene, in the background, are really just people at a party, doing what people at a party do. I was VERY impressed! (/EDIT)

Fans of good sci-fi/action/thrillers will enjoy this, as will people who enjoyed the first movie. If you haven't yet read the books, do watch the movies FIRST; which is pretty much good advice for any movie adapted from a book. But still a high rating from me for this movie!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Story, Good Movie, Bad DVD November 4, 2007
Format:DVD
I loved Night Watch and I think this film is a great wrap up to everyone's story arc. I saw both in the theater and bought the DVDs as soon as they came out. However, for me, the animated subtitles are about 1/4 of the fun. It makes it feel like a comic book and just gives it that edge. So why oh why did Fox not release that version for the DVD? I find it baffling that someone made the decision to not include them even as an option. Fox DVDs have been a mixed bag as of late and I think I will stop buying them sight unseen and rather rent them first to see if the DVD is good. It is unfortunate that Fox is so inconsistent in the quality of their releases.

3.0 out of 5 stars DVD Flaws April 18, 2008
Format:DVD
As it's already been mentioned many times before, I felt that Fox made a huge mistake releasing this movie with the plain white subtitles. One of the first draws to Night Watch for me was the subtitle play. The fact that they were actively incorporated in the film itself was really cool. I saw the sequel in the theaters in the first week and walked away feeling that it was even better than Night Watch. For one thing, it developed many of the background characters much more thoroughly. For another thing, the subtitles again were really fun to watch...almost advancing the plot themselves.

Then...I saw the DVD. Had I seen this on DVD first, there is no question about it...I would have probably HATED this movie. The plain white subtitles really took a LOT from the movie quality. I may also be mistaken that other things were removed (though I can't think of any example).

That said...wait to buy this version. Eventually Fox will want to suck more money from people by releasing the "original theater release" version. Wait for that before buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but note May 19, 2006
By Jazz
Format:DVD
Very intersting looking movie with very original special effects. Unfortunatly unless these discs are pirated, the legal Russian release does not contain and english dub or english subtitles. There are plans I've heard to bring the second movie in this trilogy to America, now only if they'd release Final Watch in Russia. That'll probably happen summer 2007 I suppose.

4.0 out of 5 stars subtitles different December 10, 2007
By Nick
Format:DVD
I just want to point out that the English subtitles on this DVD are not the same as the ones in the theatrical release. If you saw Day Watch in the theaters, you probably remember the animated subtitles. This DVD doesn't have them for some reason. I don't know why, since the DVD of Night Watch has the animated subtitles. This isn't a huge drawback, but you should probably be aware of this before buying this DVD.

I still love this movie. Besides the visuals and effects, what makes this movie so great is its sense of humor. I love all the satirical elements. For instance, the dark others wear trendy clothes and look like the Russian mafia. Critics seem to miss the fact that this movie is often supposed to be funny.

Then there's the themes of love, parenthood, and responsibility. This film has so much. It's not for everyone, but I highly recommend this film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Movie Good, FOX Bad November 23, 2007
Format:DVD
I saw Day Watch in the theater and thought it was better there. There isn't any difference in the dialog or the length of the film between the DVD and the theatrical release. The big difference comes in how the English subtitles are delivered. Unlike its predecessor, Night Watch, and the theatrical release, the DVD does not have subtitles that are integrated into the film. Instead, they're an option you must chose and they appear as normal subtitles. This is very disappointing, as the integrated subtitles allow the viewer to see more of the action when reading the text. Subtitles aside, the plot is pretty solid and the cinematics are amazing. Russia holds the next generation for special effects.
