Sequel to the Russian fantasy thriller, 'Night Watch'. Over a year has passed since the denouement of the original film. Anton (Konstantin Khabensky) continues to fight the forces of Darkness while simultaneously attempting to find and save his son (Dmitry Martinov), who has become a great Dark Other, from those same forces. But when Dark Others start mysteriously being murdered, and Anton is framed for the killings, he must put his goal on hold and try to escape the Day Watch who are out looking for his blood.
The dizzying supernatural Russian epic started in Night Watch continues with Day Watch, in which once again the battle between the forces of Light (the Night Watch) and Dark (the Day Watch) threatens to crack open the world as we know it. The plot centers around Anton (Russian superstar Konstantin Khabensky), an Other (one of many beings with varied supernatural powers) whose son, Yegor, has joined the Day Watch, who are grooming him to be their superpowerful savior. Anton's protégé, Svetlana, also has high-capacity power, and if Yegor and Svetlana come into conflict, the resulting devastation could shatter everything. The key to success seems to lie with the Chalk of Fate, a simple piece of chalk that can rewrite reality.Day Watch is full of plotholes and underdeveloped story points (at one point, to keep him safe, Anton's consciousness is switched into the body of his Night Watch colleague Olga--but mere moments later the Day Watch knows what's happened, before any suspense could be mined from it; as a result, this promising plot twist seems only to exist to allow for some girl-on-girl action), but it's forgivable. As with the first film, Day Watch bubbles over with its wildly imaginative world, its ravishing style, and its fantastic visual effects. If a Hollywood blockbuster had half as much creativity, it would be praised to the skies and be the hit of the year. Don't let the subtitles put you off (particularly since even the subtitles reflect the movie's wit and imagination)--Day Watch is a cinematic feast that any movie fan should devour. --Bret Fetzer

1 (cover: face with birds) is the original in Russian with COOL English subtitles that fade away and Add to the films enjoyment (I believe that this is the one that Ajeigh would watch) And is definitely the best and deserves 5 Stars.
If you watched Nightwatch recently on Channel 4, this is the one.
2 (cover: Black and White/Blue with title across the middle on Red background) is a dubbed version which is absolutely dreadful because of the dubbing.
3 is the 'sunglasses cover' "English for the hearing impaired" subtitles with continual information like [THUNDER RUMBLES], [INAUDIBLE DIALOG] and [YELLING]. Great if you're deaf or hearing impaired but not for the rest of us.
So I would recommend that everyone watch the version of Day Watch which has the guy in the green jumper on the cover, but it is currently only available in REGION 1 from the US!
Would you agree Ajeigh?
If you saw the film in the cinema then be thankful because you've seen the best version of it, if you didn't have the chance to see the film in the cinema then feel free to buy this DVD in ignorance of the quality this film should have been.
The 2-Disc Nightwatch DVD contained not only the original film with the animated subtitles, but also alternate versions of the film without the animated subtitles, dubbing, and a good range of special features. This DVD however, although it still contains the optional dubbing (if you happen to like that), normal subtitles and also a 'making of' featurette, BUT the thing that actually made this film stand out from others and added an extra element to the film which really made a difference to the veiwing by ebglish speaking audiences is NOT INCLUDED. I am of course reffering to the animated subtitles which seemed to be such an integral and enjoyable addition to both Nightwatch and Daywatch alike. As I have said, if you saw this film in the cinema then you will most likely be dissapointed by this DVD, otherwise feel free to buy it since it is still an excellent film. Why the animated subtitles have been removed from a film that relied so heavily upon them I am unable to fathom, but it has crippled what in my opinion should have been one of the best DVD releases this year.
Anyway, I finally got to see it and it was a worthy sequel and fairly close to the book. There were some good effects - I especially liked some of the effects with the vampires and the gloom. The story unfolds gracefully and all the way through you are wondering what is going to happen to Anton and his son, right up until nearly the end.
I recommend both Night Watch and Day Watch movies and all three books (book four is out 2008)
This was an insult to the wonderfully deep and rich world that Lukyanenko created in his books. In fact it would have been less insulting if, instead of making this film, the director just filmed himself piling up the four books in the series taking a huge dribbly s*** on them! At least it would have been shorter.
Avoid at all costs.
What has happened to the third chapter of this promised trilogy, though, I wonder ?
Great follow up, shame the subtitles aren't the animated ones that were shown at the cinema but a good movie none the less. Like Nightwatch the sound is better than the picture transfer but it's still a great disc.
