Others are those wizards, sorcerers, witches and shapechangers among us, locked in combat between those dedictaed to the Light and Dark. Generals Gesen and Zavulon command the forces of Others dedicated to Light and Darkness, respectively. On a bridge, the two armies meet, and a truce is struck to prevent to annihilation of all Others in that combat. Both sides wait for the birth of an Other whose choice of sides will decide the end to their struggle.

In 1992, Anton, a mild mannered man, meets a modern witch in her apartment to have her cast a spell to retun his lost love to him. She warns him that his love is now pregnant with another man's child, and that this child will constantly draw Anton's love back to the other man, unless it is also destroyed. However, the witch will only attempt to destroy the child if Anton agrees to accept the responsibility of that act. In the botched process of casting the spell to destroy the unborn child, he awakes to the uneeen world around him, becoming an Other.

In 2004, Anton has chosen the Light side, and is hunting vampires and other Dark siders in Moscow, using his special Gift as a Seer. Ironically, he lives next door to a vampire, and they share a wary but friendly relationship. Interestingly, the Light is in the habit of providing special licenses to Dark siders, allowing them to kill/feed/convert/etc., but each side polices the activities of the other to make certain that the Truce is never broken. During an intervention, Anton kills the vampire lover of a young girl, recently "turned", saving a young boy in the process, but effectively violating the peace. He also encounters Svetlana, something "much worse than a vampire", but who is wholly unaware of her role in apocalyptic events about to unfold.

I had stumbled onto the trailer to this epic about two years ago by accident when I downloaded it off the internet. Immediately I was stunned by just the short clips I saw and was even more amazed when the credits flashed at the end and they were written in Russian! A movie that encompasses several genres with no big Hollywood names or actors/actresses attached and showcases some of the most original cinematography I had ever seen? How can this movie not be good? I waited and waited...1 year had passed and still nothing...small tidbits filter back that this movie was smashing all records over in Russia, beating North American glam movies like Spiderman and Lord of the Rings... everywhere I asked or talked about it no one knew what the hell I was talking about...then I hear that the studios are translating it over for a North American release ( the first thing that went thru my head was they are going to screw with it too much and end up butchering it..)

FINALLY IT ARRIVES!!!!!! I can honestly say its been forever since a movie got my blood racing just off a preview but this one did and then some. I went to Nightwatch opening night and as the movie started I began to freak out because the first lines from the narrator are in English and not Russian!! Noooo they dubbed over the Russian actors voices and it won't be subtitled, but much to my relief they did indeed keep the original actors voices and it was subtitled ( This is a huge annoyance when studios voice over instead of subtitles, if they wanted it in English they would have filmed it in English!)

This movie destroyed any and everything that I had seen in the last ten years.

"It is easier for a man to destroy the Light inside himself than to defeat the darkness all around him."

"Night Watch" is the closest any film has come since "The Matrix" to completely knocking me on my ass on the fisrt viewing. There is so much awesomeness in this movie, that you can almost feel the rest of the trilogy building as this first installment goes on. The story is so well crafted, the action so exhilarating, and the themes and concepts put forth so fresh that the few flaws are easily brushed aside in favor of total immersion into this new world. The story centers around the war between light and dark. The light side has a special organization, Night Watch, who monitor the dark ones even as the dark side's own Day Watch monitors them. Both sides have the goal of maintaining peace and order as each man and woman is free to choose which side they will follow. Needless to say, the truce between the two sides is tentative at best. Each member of the supernatural light/dark battle is referred to as an "Other" and they include in their ranks witches, vampires, shapeshifters and all of the other usual horror fare. They all have the ability to slip into an alternate dimension known as "The Gloom" which makes them invisible to the real world except for their reflection in mirrors. This is used to create some mind-bogglingly awesome and creepy shots. The characters are many, interesting, and instantly accessible. Each has a great story behind them, but most are sorely underdeveloped. This, I'm sure, will be remedied in the next installment. I mean, how could you not want to see more of a villain who pulls a sword out of his own spine? Then there's the sexy were-tiger girl (don't blink or you'll miss her awesome tranformation) and a pop-diva who doubles as a Day Watch warrior.
