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 some pretty good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. First of all, even though it was pretty neat that this movie was broadcast on one of our Dutch channels, for some reasons, they went for an English dubbed version and it really sucked (a few years later, they would also show the sequel, ‘Day Watch’, and this time around, it would be in Russian…... 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.

"Fuerzas del mal y el bien luchando por siglos ahora vuelven para luchar en Rusia post soviética. Esa sinopsis iba bien hasta que te meten de historia a un cuck que planeo un aborto y todo se va al carajo. Momentos incoherentes y ridículos con sobre edición."

500 Essential Cult Movies (502 movies items)

" A breakout Russian blockbuster horror film by yet another Roger Corman-discovered director. With a style reminiscent of Blade and The Matrix, but more daring and in-your-face than either, Night Watch provides and exciting, varied visual feast despite the sometimes confusing narrative. Highly recommended for those who like their vampires to be brutish and stylish. "
