Ole Bornedal's American remake of his own 1994 Danish hit 'Nattevagten'. A law student (Ewan McGregor) takes a job as a hospital nightwatchman, just as a serial killer strikes the city. All the evidence points to the student's culpability in the murders, so he burns the midnight oil in order to prove his innocence.
Ole Bornedal's thriller about a young law student who takes a job as a night watchman in a creepy morgue is long on style but comes up a little short on quality of storytelling. Bornedal sets things up in high style as Martin Bells (Ewan McGregor doing an American accent) makes his rounds in the middle of the night, with only corpses and his own paranoia for company. When bodies start coming in, the prostitute victims of a grisly serial killer, the imposing detective on the case (a hulking Nick Nolte) begins to suspect that Bells is the killer, as all clues start pointing to him. Coscripted by Steven Soderbergh (Out of Sight) and adapted from Bornedal's 1994 Danish thriller, Nightwatch forsakes out-and-out thrills for a more moody approach with flickering lights, menacing shadows and echoing footsteps down long hallways. If only there was a little more energy before the highly effective denouement, which does get scares, even after the killer is revealed. Still, McGregor is supported by a stronger than average cast: in addition to Nolte, Josh Brolin does an amusing turn as McGregor's out-of-control best friend, Patricia Arquette fares well in the standard girlfriend role and the always creepy Brad Dourif makes the most of a sinister and funny bit part as the on-call doctor. You won't jump out of your seat but by the end of Nightwatch you will find yourself remarkably tense. --Mark Englehart --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The power of this version is its ability to shock, to take you unawares. It's intrinsically dark, and, be warned, definitely not for the faint-hearted.
To tell you anything of the plot would ruin the whole effect of the film. Let's just say that murder, necrophilia, and a drunken bet are at the heart of the story.
My advice is simple, turn off the lights, pour yourself a stiff (no pun intended) drink , and prepare to be scared witless. Oh, and another thing, don't even think of watching this film on your own.
On first watching it, I initialy felt disappointment as the movie felt slow to develop or to display much of a focused plotline.
But that does change.
The movie is very cleverly done - one of the most atmospheric and unnerving I have seen in a while. The clever use of setpieces and camerwork come together to provide some particularly uncomfortable scenes: ones where you are justing waiting for that something to jump out at you.
It's really hard to give you a rundown of the storyline as it's quite complex but also this would give much of the movie's secret away.
It is, as the last reviewer said, one of those movies that I can't get out of my head.
If you want something not run of the mill; something with a bit of character and depth - this is defintely one worth veiwing.
Its cast is far superior than the remake, and watching the US version first makes you appreciate how good Bornedals original is. The three central characters are far superior in wit, talent and execution, and are unforgettably charming. The black sense of humour contrasted with such effective and intense chills leaves you gobsmacked.
It is unforgettably frightening, with a conclusion which leaves you talking as the rest of the film so aptly does. You must see this phenomenal picture.
Martin Bells (McGregor) is a college student who is hopeful to make some money for himself by taking a job as a watch man at the old city morgue. What he originally believes to be an easy job for easy cash, soon proves to be much more difficult than first expected. A mysterious serial killer has been murdering prostitutes, before he kills them, he makes them play dead. Now, the murderer starts to stalk Martin on his night shifts by playing sick mind games with the dead corpses. It is all very creepy, sometimes quite funny in parts and Ewan McGregor and the rest of the big name cast are excellent in their roles.
I have yet to see the original Danish version of this film. However, if it is even better than this 1997 remake, I really should.
