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.

"First viewing - Jan. 1st/2nd I figured after all the times last year that I planned to watch this & wound up leaving it sitting on the shelf I should get it watched the first opportunity I had this month. And so I did. Here we have a visually Amazing film all around, including a nice touch where it makes the subtitles visually interesting too. Never seen that done before & it was refreshing. The acting is excellent too, though it's possible that I was as much impressed by the lack of actors I "

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

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
