Product Description

For as long as humanity has existed, there have been 'Others' among us: Witches, Vampires and Shape-Shifters who are soldiers in the eternal war between Light and Dark. Light Others protect mankind from Dark Others, who plague and torture humans. For over 1000 years a truce has existed, upheld by underground forces: the soldiers of the Light (NightWatch) and the soldiers of the Dark (DayWatch). Ancient prophecy foretells that one day the Great One will arrive and end the threat of an apocalyptic battle between Light and Dark Others. That day has come, and somewhere in Moscow a Nightwatch team race to find and protect the Great One from the DayWatch vampires who seek to plunge the world into darkness. Whoever reaches the Great One first will hold the balance of power in their hands and control the fate of humanity.

if you only make one dvd purchase this year, this is the one an excellent film i cannot praise this enough, i originally watched it thinking just another action film but it is so much more with excellent dialouge, character development, action and special effect quite frankly the greatest story ever told with the most involving, edge of seat plot, the story takes us deep into a forever waged war against the forces of light and dark, good and evil if you will until the two armies formed a truce that no 1 other (the gifted people that aren't just human) can be forced to one side of the spectrum, the dark warriors watched over the night and were called daywatch and the light warriors would watch over the day and were called nightwatch the two get along as they are supposed to until the great events that unfold later in the story.

1 tip for all of you, BUY THIS FILM!

My mum wanted to come and see this with me. However, just the mention of 'apocalyptic battle between good and evil', 'vampires' and 'Russian subtitles' made her think that perhaps Herbie: Fully Loaded was the better option.
Basic plot: there's a big battle going on in Moscow between the Light and Dark Others, who are basically sorcerers, vampires and the like. Our hero, Anton, is a Light Other, and a member of the Night Watch, who keep an eye on the Dark Others. There is an uneasy truce between them. But, of course, there is a prophecy of the coming of a 'Great Other', and whichever side he chooses will triumph in the war.
This film broke all box office records back in Russia, surpassing Lord of the Rings and the Spiderman films, and a sequel is already in production. And I can see why - after all the big-budget formula films coming out at the moment, it's great to have a film which has an entirely unique tone and, despite being a fantasy film, feels so gritty and real.
The film is full to bursting with different stories, elements and characters - so much that it's pretty much impossible to understand it all. At the beginning you see a doll's head on spider legs attacking someone - it's there for a few seconds, and then it's gone. We never find out about it. If that puts you off, well, it happens a lot.
However, I thought this film was great. I liked the fact that the world was so busy and detailed and you didn't see much of anything - it increased the realism of the world it was depicting. Sort of like the Silmarillion for Lord of the Rings compressed into the same film, but with less confusing names.

Format: DVD
A dark comic book style action thriller, with demons!!! Night Watch is the first instalment of what looks to be one of the darkest trilogies that ever graced the silver screen. A medieval tale of dark knights and light warriors set against a modern day backdrop of concrete jungles in Moscow.

"The truce must not be broken. . ." An ancient battle, set to decide the rest of human history, between both sides of the Others, took place many generations ago. With each death, the General of Light wept, and the Commander of Dark screamed. With each army matching their rivals in every form of combat and inner strength, the opposing enemies halted the battle to form a truce to spare the lives of many men. Guardians of the truce were sent to prevent both sides from committing sins on the innocents, and each other. The Light Others brought forward the Night Watch, and the Dark Others, Light Watch. The truce will only be broken when one day, as a prophesy dictates, a chosen one will have the burden of deciding the fate for all of the human race. Which will it be Light, or Dark?

The movie centres on Anton, a Night Watch solider with an dark past, as he bares witness to the beginning, of what could be, the end. We join him on a mission to hunt down a viscous vampire who has broken the truce by feeding on an innocent. On his journey he discovers that an innocent child involved in the crime will decide the fate of the truce. There is definitely enough material to fit into three films, with a deep back story based around the two central characters, a exploding mythology of vampires and religion and main plot of the path of the chosen one. However, this series is on the verge of being too over complex for general audiences.

Forces of light and dark have an almighty fight, realise it isn't really getting them anywhere and so call a truce. But - as is the way of such things - the truce is a tentative one and the two sides set about policing each other. Fast-forward to modern-day Moscow where the truce is becoming increasingly shaky due in no small part to a soon to be realised prophecy that will see one side finally triumphant!
Despite the fantastical premise, do not expect this to be a glossy, action-packed, overblown, live-action cartoon. The atmosphere is dark and very grim. The violence and content are unflinching and the whole thing plays out more like a deep, epic horror movie rather than your usual fantasy fare.
That said, the special effects are stunning, with even the sub-titles being incorperated into the cinematography!
It's also important to pay attention as the characters and sub-plots are numerous, but important, not only to this, but also (I imagine) to the rest of the trilogy (yes, TRILOGY).
The epic scale of this movie will (at least in part) be lost on the small-screen but, this movie being as complex as it is, the depth of the story will be far more accessible with subsiquent viewings. And I, for one, will certainly be watching this again!
