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 »

Completely Unexpected production of The Russian Cinema
I saw Night Watch some time ago and I thought: Humm... What a nice movie. Interesting. Than I went to see Day Watch on the day of the premiere. Tickets had to be bought 3 hours earlier in order to get some. There was a crowd was so packed that even visiting the toilet was impossible. When the movie was starting I thought: well just the next over-talked-about movie, nothing special, BUT What I saw just left me astonished. I could never think such thing could happen. It is comparable by grandiosity to Titanic, and to StarWars by excitement, to The Matrix by plot. I have not seen such a thing yet. It combines Comedy, Action, Drama, Triller, Sci-Fy, Fantasy, Horror in such a manner that they bond without arguments. It's a MUST SEE!!!
