Day Watch: Unrated

If you thought the visuals were cool in the latest Angelina Jolie film "Wanted" then you might be interested in watching this Russian film as they were both done by the same director. This sequel to his film "Night Watch" is again very visual, imaginative, full of style, and interesting special effects.

Fans of action/sci-fi films will be interested in this Russian box office smash hit as director Bekmambetov uses his wild imagination to create a whole new world. It is the battle between good and evil. What you get is a mix of the Holy Grail, vampires and knights. Intrigued? Read on.

The age-old truce between dark and light hangs over the heads of humans without them knowing anything about it. Each of the sides has gained a powerful 'Other' and is headed for an all out war. Once again Anton Gorodetsky (Konstantin Khabensky – Night Watch, Wanted) is caught in the middle of the fight.

Anton's son, Egor (Dmitry Martynov – Night Watch) is on the dark side of the battle and Anton's love, Svetlana (Mariya Poroshina – Night Watch), is on the side of the light. Anton can help neither as he himself is on the run from the law as he has been accused of murder. It seems now like only the Ancient Chalk of Fate can come to the rescue. The only problem is that it was lost long ago and has not been seen for hundreds of years.

Due to the success of the first installment of this film trilogy there was more money available for the second and you can tell that they spent it on special effects. Some of them are quite cool. So much so that you tend to forget that the script is fairly weak and just have fun with the visuals.
