Night and Day

The sequel to Russian blockbuster Night Watch is ridiculous fun.


Today, Day Watch, the sequel to the Russian blockbuster Night Watch, begins playing for a week at the Neptune Theater. Having let the film sit with me for a week, I’ve come to the conclusion that it was ridiculous, preposterous and often hard to keep up with. But, it was also quite fun to watch. I’d say that I liked Night Watch more, but Day Watch continues the story better than I would have imagined and the CGI is incredible for a relatively unknown effects house. Also notable are the incredible subtitles. Both Night Watch and Day Watch have the best subtitles I’ve ever seen on film because they are environmental and change with what is happening on screen. For example, a man swings his sword and he cuts through the text. Bottom line: If you liked the first one, check it out. Otherwise don’t bother. Read the full review by Nathan Lee HERE.
