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.

Mind blowing film.....
16 April 2006 | by benblaneSee all my reviews

My first piece of advice before watching this film would be to make sure you see Night Watch first. This certainly isn't a trilogy that you could watch out of sequence.

But for those willing to start at the beginning this is one of the most rewarding pieces of cinema you'll ever see. The CG is awesome, the acting first class and the direction of Timur Bekmambetov is breathtaking (a point not lost on Hollywood with him signing up to direct his first English language film).

The ending of the first film is taken a step further and knitted together beautifully with the second, keeping you gripped with questions and answers from start to finish. In fact the pace was so good I barely noticed the fact that it was 3 hours long.

The only things that confuse me about this film is where can they possibly go with Dusk Watch..... and could it be even better.
