"DAY WATCH". 2006
Russian premiere: 1 January, 2006
The sequel to the blockbuster “Night Watch” describes the events of the second part of the book by Sergey Lukianenko. But the new film offers not only a story about further development of events and heroes’ relations. It can be called a major step, which brought Russian entertainment cinema up to world’s standard. Creators used all the necessary components: dynamic detective subject, bright and expressive love line, scaled and realistic special effects, excellent work of cameraman, who as if engages you in the actions of the film.
This time it’s really serious. World is on the verge. If you see an Inquisitor on the TV screen, the shaky balance between Lights and Darks may be upset. It’s a big game, and there is no pity for pawns. A member of Night Watch Anton Gorodetsky becomes a small fry in a very high intrigue. But neither manipulator nor his victim expect such a surprising end...
