"Blu-Ray Disc, Beyond High Definition."
Only one thing stands between peace and Armageddon: the supernatural agents of Day Watch, who fight to control the armies of light and darkness. When the son of a senior Day Watch officer turns to the darkness, forces beyond the imagination are unleashed and the fate of the world hangs in the balance!

Like The Matrix, Day Watch combines cutting-edge digital effects and mind-blowing action to create a stunningly original world.

"There's a little bit of everything that makes modern film exciting...offbeat characters, epic action, a genre-spanning story line, and genuine romance.  Gabriel Powers, DVDActive
"...rivals anything on display in Lord of the Rings...louder, faster and meaner than 300.  IonCinema.com
"...a sci-fi action extravaganza that's faster, funnier, and more original than any summer sequel since Batman Begins.  Jim Hemphill, Reel.com
"Bursting with incident and FX, "Day Watch" will delight fans of its predecessor...  Leslie Felperin, Variety
"A dazzling mix of visual effects and amazing action sequences.  New York Magazine

Editor's Note
This sequel to the Russian film NIGHT WATCH centers on an epic battle between forces of good and evil. An uneasy truce has kept the armies at bay for centuries, but that peace is about to end, and it will pit vampires, psychics, and witches against one another. Both factions, the Day Watch and the Night Watch, have beings of extraordinary power called "Great Others," and if these two people meet, a supernatural war will begin. Anton Gorodetsky (Konstantin Khabensky) finds himself torn between his son, the dark side's Great Other, and the woman he loves, the champion for the Light Others.

DAY WATCH (DNEVNOI DOZOR) explodes in the mind-bending space between THE MATRIX and UNDERWORLD. The Russian film boasts the same visual verve as THE MATRIX, and it's just as revolutionary. Director Timur Bekmambetov is operating on a completely different level of creativity than most of his peers, fashioning a unique world and jaw-dropping set pieces. The fate of the universe hangs in the balance, but DAY WATCH doesn't take itself too seriously. From humor in the subtitles themselves to jokes at the expense of the Russian bureaucracy, there's a lot of fun to be had at the dawn of the apocalypse. Though NIGHT WATCH was an enjoyable experience, Bekmambetov ups the ante with this sequel, improving on the original in every way. DAY WATCH may clock in at an epic 140 minutes, but it's a tight film filled with action and style.

Uncut

Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "Timur Bekmambetov confidently assembles the complicated plot....It's a rich film....The major achievement is that it establishes its own tradition." 11/01/2007 p.56

Commentary Track 10 of 10
Naming sequels that are better than the original is a favorite movie lover trivia game. I have a new movie to add to that select group now, the splendid Russian fantasy Day Watch. Deliriously inventive and absurdly entertaining, Day Watch is a sequel to the merely good Night Watch...Night Watch was largely concerned with introductions. Introducing the audience to the characters, and the characters to each other to set up the story...Day Watch opens with a brief reprise of the prologue and a briefer recap of the events from Night Watch, but after that it never slows down for introductions or explanations...Story and characterization in Day Watch are frequently developed through fantastic (in both senses) action set-pieces. The art design, costumes and effects are wonderfully imaginative and the film is the equal of a Hollywood blockbuster in technical achievement. Day Watch kept me in a state of excited anticipation all the way to its very satisfying conclusion...I can't end without a tribute to the absolutely amazing subtitles. Words in a line of dialogue appear on the screen in sequence to capture the rhythm of the spoken line. Excited words literally pulse. Words of anger and passion become red and engorged. The subtitles continue the visual aesthetic of the film and reinforce the dramatic content. - Helen Geib

Dreamwatch Total Sci Fi 6 of 10
It's probably a good idea to see the original movie, Night Watch, before coming to this sequel, as from the very start the narrative moves at a breakneck speed, thrusting you right into the action without explanation...The initial hour of Day Watch is actually quite entertaining as the seeds of an intriguing story are planted. A strange mix of buddy buddy police thriller and sweetly played romantic comedy, it's a promisingly humorous and irreverent start...Sadly, as the narrative unfolds, it becomes a rather excessive, noisy action romp that drops story and character in favour of overly stylised visuals and flamboyant but empty action sequences. Day Watch serves to prove that it's not just Hollywood that can deliver spectacle without content...At just under two and a half hours in length, this sequel is also too too long. The story seems to be building towards a big climax which, unfortunately, never really materialises...Despite its flaws, fans of Night Watch will probably find much to enjoy. The effects are impressive, with scenes of a car blasting across the side of a building and time stopping and starting shown in exquisite detail, and the novel way that subtitles are displayed is still creative and witty...It's worth a thousand Underworlds, but ultimately Day Watch is as hollow as it is beautiful. - Jonathan Wilkins
