The original movie title was "Nochnoy dozor 2: Mel Sudby" (Night Watch 2: The Chalk of Fate), as the movie is based on two stories from Sergey Lukyanenko's book "Night Watch". A teaser trailer with the title "Nochnoy dozor 2" could be seen on the Russian DVD of Turetskiy gambit (2005). A few months before release, the title was changed to "Dnevnoy dozor" (Day Watch). The end credits reflect the title change to "Dnevnoy dozor", though they keep the subtitle "Mel Sudby". See more »
Near the beginning, when Tamerlan is sat under his horse examining the map of the maze-like fort where the Chalk of Destiny is kept, he traces his finger over the maze and accidentally pokes his finger through the bottom-right hand corner of the map, which results in inspiring his attack on the fort. There is also a hole towards the centre of the map. Later, when Anton breaks into the archives he finds the same map, which now has the hole towards the centre, but no hole at the bottom right-hand corner at all. See more »
Why does the wind come? To cover tracks where we have passed... so no one thinks we are still alive. It was long ago and no one can remember now how the Warriors of Light and the Warriors of Darkness clashed on the Bridge of Justice... how blood was spilled... how the great Jassar's heart could not bear it and he stopped the battle.

I couldn't finish this movie; I got about half way through the DVD and gave up out of sheer annoyance.
I couldn't follow the characters or the plot. Worst yet, I didn't even care about the characters.
Obviously, a lot of people had put money and effort into the movie, so I assumed I must not be "getting it," -- like a dog watching a car being fixed, waiting for a ride to the park.
But the car never got fixed and I never got to go for my ride! For me, the movie was a lot of noise and colors, way too many characters, graphic violence and short snippets of headbanger rock and roll.
But no story that I could possibly keep track of. And no characters that I cared about.
I'll give it a "2" because the production values were good and the acting OK (yet futile)
