Among normal humans live the “Others” possessing various supernatural powers. They are divided up into the forces of light and the forces of the dark, who signed a truce several centuries ago to end a devastating battle. Ever since, the forces of light govern the day while the night belongs to their dark opponents. In modern day Moscow the dark Others actually roam the night as vampires while a “Night Watch” of light forces, among them Anton, the movie’s protagonist, try to control them and limit their outrage.

Film Review

Timur Bekmambetov's 'Nochnoy Dozor' (a.k.a. 'Nightwatch') is one of Russia's most expensive and highest grossing films. For a film that mostly relies on special effects, this sci-fi fantasy comprises fresh ideas. However, as enjoyable as it is, it's full of holes. In many places, the story loses focus and seem to delve towards areas without going far enough to explore them properly. The story lines are kind of muddled which is the result of Bekmambetov trying to say too much in too little time. The director does confirm that the second movie (it's part of a trilogy) will develop the stories introduced here. 'Nochnoy Dozor' is also lacking in humour but at the same time some sequences are unintentionally funny. Moreover, the climax felt weird (even melodramatic to an extent).Bekmambetov's direction is quite stylish and the film has plenty of energy. There's some fine cinematography. The special effects aren't always first…

Night Watch (the movie) completely disregards the subtleties of the book(s) which lend the story its magic.Actually, the trilogy is less about black and white, the fight between darkness and light, but about how blurry and arbitrary the distinction actually is at times. The books (contrary to the movie) depart from cliché notions (such as vampires being vulnerable to light). They are surreal and twisted, rich and deeply human, and for the most part take a much slower pace, allowing them to explore the depth of the characters.If you're in for an action flick, I suppose the movie(s) will do. If you're in for the modern epic of Night Watch, Day Watch, and Twilight Watch, go for the books.
