Review 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.

Review 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.
