DVD review: Nightwatch team bring amazing visuals to The Interceptor

23 February 2010 5:19 PM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

If you placed the silent fury of Bourne or Quantum of Solace's James Bond in an otherworldly setting, chances are you'd end up with something a little like The Interceptor.

The film hit the big screen in its native Russia last year. It didn't get a cinema release in the UK but is out here on DVD and Blu-ray this week.

This intriguing, surreal and rather abstruse sci-fi adventure - with English subtitles - has visual effects from the same team that worked on Timur Bekmambetov's Nightwatch/Daywatch series.

And the influence of that FX crew is very visible, with some stunning sequences involving physical stunts, fight scenes and computer-generated phenomena.

Directed by Konstantin Maximov, and adapted from the hugely successful series of novels by sci-fi author Vasily Golovachev, it begins with several screens of metaphysical text as a prologue for the fantastical journey that follows.
