DVD Review
Publisher: Fox Searchlight
US Rating: R

Following up with it’s predecessor Night Watch is the Russian sequel Day Watch.  This is the second novel of Russian sci-fi and fantasy author Sergei Lukyanenko, the third of which Twilight Watch is planned for a film version as well.

Day Watch picks up approximately one year after the events of Night Watch and again brings the hero Anton Gorodetsky, played by Konstantin Khabensky, as the negotiator between the armies of the Light and the Dark.  In this installment a new threat emerges again putting the truce treaty at risk.  While this film had a couple of good moments this in my opinion was a disappointing follow up to the prequel.

Once again the visuals presented in the film, and special effect action sequences are what we stay watching the movie for.  Also the filmmakers do once again use interesting visually entertaining subtitles to convey the dialogue of the film.  A real benefit to seeing this film is to see it on Blu-ray.  The enhanced technology really does this film well and further enhances the audience’s appreciation for the work done to make this film exciting.
