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.

A few years ago I saw Nightwatch in theathers accidentally and left feeling confused and not really liking it, but days later still had that movie on my mind. I soon realized why I didnt like it-at first. These movies are probably the most original movies since the early 1980s when Bladerunner, Aliens, Star Wars, etc...popularized the new genre combination of action sci-fi horror. Unlike those films, and the millions that copied them, Nightwatch delivers the same package but in a totally different and selfish way.
Daywatch is a much better movie than Nightwatch. The budget and effects are like night and day between the two respectively. After I eventually appreciated Nightwatch, the only flaw I could give it is that it had low budget feel in terms of production and design. Here Daywatch ramps that up exponentially and also ramps up the action, style and plot exponentially!
I love the originality of both movies and Daywatch must be the best sequel in the history of sequels. The saturation of Russian culture, style and personality into these films is a bit of a shock at first but you get to love it and appreciate the way its done. I've never seen a Russian or Eastern European movie that made me think "hey, I should go visit there" until these movies. I expect more goodies like this from Russia and this director/producer in the future. The cast was also brillant in acting and carried the plot well. I also like the decentralization of the main character. In Hollywood or western story telling everything centers around good vs. bad and good is usually our hero and we follow him/her for 2 hours on the screen whiles him/her try to stop the bad.
In these films good can be bad and bad can be very entertaining!

I really liked the Slavic perspective coming out of Eastern Europe. Though subtitled, I found this a refreshing view of a well-worn genre.

1.0 out of 5 stars tosh
Skip it. Reading the subtitles is painful, but the movie is a bit too esoteric for my taste. Hard to follow the plot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great follow up!
This sequel to 'Night Watch' was just almost as good as the first. It's storyline was a wonderful way for the two movies to connect and come full circle.

5.0 out of 5 stars The fun continues!
A well-told story that not only "ends" the two-film version of the bestselling novels, but also manages to surprise in a nice way!
