Interesting

Not as action-packed as I expected it to be, but it was very interesting. The main theme of the movie is captured perfectly by the character Gesser: "It is easier to kill the Light within oneself, than to scatter the Darkness that surrounds us." The sub-title effects were pretty awesome. Some parts of it could have been executed better to provide a sense of urgency that was missing. This movie had... read more

Quite possibly one of the most darkest, surreal and disturbing movie of modern times, Nightwatch also happens to be the greatest Russian movie I've seen so far. Come to think of it, it's the only Russian film I've seen so far but something tells me I will be checking out more Russian flicks soon. As seeing how brilliant the movie was, I kinda regret it because it's based on a book, although loosel... read more

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really curious to check it out. First of all, I had the misfortune to watch an English dubbed version which kind of sucked but, you know, sh*t happens... Honestly, I thought it was one of the most messy and chaotic movies I have seen for a long time. As a result, the whole thing was rather confusing and I'm not sure I understood the whole st... read more

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.

Honestly, I thought it was one of the most messy and chaotic movies I have seen for a long time. As a result, the whole thing was rather confusing and I'm not sure I understood the whole story but I guess it was also the charm of this feature. Still, it remains a visually fascinating flick with some pretty impressive special effects. Furthermore, I enjoyed also that the movie was taking place in Moscow without any Hollywood stars and I found this rather refreshing. As said before, in my opinion, the plot was a mess but they developped some interesting mythology. Still, there is such” read more

As seeing how brilliant the movie was, I kinda regret it because it's based on a book, although loosely and it was only after finishing the movie twice I got to know this and frankly speaking, I don't like watching movies before reading the books as it always obscures my views. Now I will read the book exactly how I saw the movie but I think I'll manage. Anyway, this is a positively brilliant film and deserves to be called a masterpiece but too bad this is the only film I like (so far) by Timur Be” read more

Emo characters in movies... (9 movies items)

"The character of Anton Gorodetsky in "Night Watch" struck me as pretty emo, all things considered. I think Yegor (the boy) was at risk of becoming an emo if he hadn't gone dark side. Which is ironic. "
