Quotes

[first lines]
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... how the great Jassar's heart could not bear it and he stopped the battle. But once, when the night is longer than the day, a new Great One will come and the world will be plunged into darkness. And nothing can save it, except...

Alternate Versions

The international version was cut by ca. 18 minutes for the worldwide release by FOX. Additionally, a new prologue has been added, summing up the events of Nochnoy Dozor (2004). Here are some of the bigger scenes omitted from the international version:
  • Anton and Anatoly play basketball in the computer room.
  • Alisa visits Galina Rogova's little daughter to find out if she saw Gorodetsky.
  • Anton calls his ex-wife (Yegor's mother) to find out where Yegor is.
  • In the subway, Anton escapes from the pursuing Dark Others by jumping into a running train. The pursuers kill a night guard who tries to stop them.
  • At the party Anton grabs a microphone from a singer and starts singing Communist songs.
  • Yegor is trying to suck out life's force of Svetlana through the needle he put into her at the beginning. Additionally to that, there are many trims of existing scenes and excised lines. Also, there are some cuts for violence, e.g. Yegor pouring a pot of hot sausages over a vendor and Anton's brutal beating by the security guard.

A splendid example.....of self-destruction
24 September 2010 | by Samiam3See all my reviews

Ironically, there is something kind of impressive about the sheer sloppiness of Day Watch (sequel to Night Watch) I would never have thought it possible for a fictional movie to be this big a wreck and still allow me to follow the plot (but barely) Day Watch is ridiculously demanding of an audience members attention and it doesn't give us anything in return. There are no thrills/chills, scares or visual splendour, but there are a few laughs.

Day Watch collapses under the weight of too much content and not enough legitimate story. Regardless of whether this is a noble adaptation of the novel, it cheats a movie goer out of a good time. I approached Day Watch hoping it would enrich the story of Night Watch, which had a cliffhanger ending. What I saw is a completely different ballgame. All the same faces are back but the performance quality is so dreadful that these feel like new people. The ending is the kind that makes the whole thing seem pointless, and by the whole thing I also mean the plot of Night Watch.

How ever much you may have loved the first, is not gonna be enough to make Day Watch a worthy investment of time. This sloppy, overlong enterprise is in desperate need of a redo.
