Trivia:
The clips of the soccer match featured in the film were taken from a friendly match of national teams: Russia 4-3 Lithuania (the match took place on 18 August 2004).See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: The photographer taking pictures on Yegor's birthday shoots multiple pictures, and you can hear electric sounds of the film transporter. However, the camera bag is of a Zenit camera, and the objective name is "Zenitar-MS". Zenit is a mechanical camera without an electric motor. The photographer takes a series of shots of Anton partying, with one shot per second. However, the flash used on the camera (either a Unomat, or a Vivitar flash) normally needs 3 to 5 seconds to recharge.See more »

Narrator: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...

Tired Of Watching., 19 August 2009
Author: fionagreen1 from United Kingdom

I couldn't tell you why I returned to this saga after being immensely disappointed by Night Watch, but I did. Again I was drawn in by the same misguided hype that surrounded the first instalment.

Who are these simple, easily satisfied cinema-goers that drool over basic gimicks such as the alternative subtitles in Night Watch? What about the convoluted, silly plot, complete lack of interesting characters and vague half-formed ideas? Anyway, enough of the first movie. The second, somehow manages to plum new depths of pointlessness. Again the plot is needlessly complicated in order to direct focus from the fact that there isn't really one.

The characters can never arrest the attention due to the dialogue being translated (badly) from Russian, leaving sub-70's cop show acting. I can only surmise that it was more realistic in it's native tongue.

For a fantasy film there seem to be very little fantastical elements, but rather some vague hints that at any moment now something might happen.

The editing is by far the most insurmountable issue here though, by turns deeply serious then, suddenly, comedic. Absurd.

It's all such a waste that it's hard to tell what the directors were aiming to achieve here. Hopefully it wasn't what we ended up with.
