Interesting film. Anybody see it? I know it's huge in Russia (where it was made), and gaining popularity in other countries, but I don't think many people in the US have seen it. Shame, because it's so unique. And we rarely get any Russian movies imported, so I have no idea what the films are like over there. Anyway, I'm waiting for Day Watch to come out on DVD... October 30th, I believe (Amazon.com).

And I know what everyone says about a movie based on a book, "the book is better." whatever, I don't know where to find an English version of the book. And even if I did come across it, I'm not much of a reader.

So if you have seen Night Watch, share your thoughts.

Yeah I own it, I didn't think it was fantastic though, it was kind of lacklustre.

I really want to see it. I work at Blockbuster and we only have one copy and it's always out whenever i'm working. If I ever see it thats mine.
#5
well, id hardly consider this to be the best movie ive ever seen. im just eager to see the next one. its a good movie, not great. i still consider it worth discussing because, like i said, we dont get many russian imports in the US, so i have no idea what films are like over there.

Yeah, I saw it a while back. It's alright. I'm not really a fan of CGI vampire films.

yh watched it ages ago. really cool film, good music too. i think we need to see more films from different countries rather than just American and English film IMO.

No, we don't; those films need to stay out of the mainstream. There's plenty of foreign (and fantastic) cinema out there, you just have to look for it.

English and American cinema has nothing on French cinema.

It was ok - I thought Day Watch was already out though?


Oh, and I did think the book was better.

At least it breaks the stereotype of Russia being an underdevelopped country with no CGI in their films and polar bears roaming the streets.

We now know that russia is an underdevelopped country with reasonable CGI effects in their films and vampires roaming the streets. And a guy who pulls out his own spine and uses it as a sword.

I loved Night Watch. Best film out of Russia which used fancy special effects.

I saw Day watch about two years ago in Russia, and I tell you. It is AMAZING!!!

Can't wait for Twilight Watch!!

I've also read all four books. Definitely a good read.

Ive seen night watch and day watch. Very good films. However i did'nt like the ending of day watch that much. Still great film. Also, the third is not called dusk watch its called twilight watch.
#24
have they started filming Twilight Watch yet?

i just saw a trailer for a movie called "Wanted" and i thought it looked interesting. reason i'd bring it up on this thread is because of the movies director, Timur Bekmambetov. the director of the Night Watch trilogy.

here's the site http://www.wantedmovie.com/ , watch the trailer and tell me what you think.

I loved nightwatch and daywatch. Got both on dvd. Konstantin Khabensky and Galina Tyunina are both fantastic actors. I dont think twighlight watch has been started yet but I've heard rumours it is going to be filmed in america, with american actors and that kindof puts me off the film.

Night Watch was pretty good.

I liked Day Watch a little bit less because the version I saw was dubbed and didn't think they'd dubbed it particularly well.

They're strange films because very little actually happens in them.
#30
Saw Night Watch; but haven't seen Day Watch.

I saw a few trailers about it, and expected it to be epic; but upon seeing it it was rather boring and extremely confusing.

It had a few good action scenes and some good overall film-making; it just didn't make much sense and didn't draw me in.
#31
I tried to watch it once, found it extremely confusing and quit after about twenty minutes.

#32
it's not confusing at all... unless...you did remember to put the subtitles on right?

I've read the first book and to be honest it is the only time its ever happened to me but I actually preferred the films. The books are too...magical.

It was alright. Not as good as I thought it might be. The ending is also wank. I spent the whole time thinking "come on man, how easy is it to explain that?" instead he fumbles around on his knees.

And what was with the bad guy practising on the PS2?


Still want to see Day Watch though.

Might be filmed in America... or just internationally. That's all I know for sure.

Yeah, I didn't think much of the dubbing this time around. It wasn't as good as Night Watch.

^Not with Night Watch. The dubbing was very well done. This time around with Day Watch... not so much.
