Just came out on DVD a few days ago. Part one of a trilogy. Won best Russian film of the year, and the sequels will be released in the states soon.. A very unique movie that's definitely worth checking out...

i loved this one too, day watch looks even better from the previews, and dusk watch should be interesting.  I should really get the books to see what was left out of the movie.

what does that say about the american movie industry when russians create a better dark fantasy than some of the illustrious producers living here?

I'm in agreement Jordyn, and am looking forward to the sequels. Night Watch was surprisingly unique and well made.. I see why it was one of the highest grossing Russian films ever..

I waited and waited for Night Watch to make it's theatrical debut here....it never did *sigh* So, I ended up just purchasing it outright when it was finally released, as I will more than likely do with the sequel, Day Watch.  I'm a little antsy about the third installment though, the Fox company co-financed, which means that it was filmed in English.  I'm gonna miss the unique subtitles.

that's the problem with foreign movies in america, they're always select theatres...we didn't get it either.

What? theyre gonna film it in english? WHY? The original language gives it sort of credention, and I dont remember that there was such a movie made by USA.  I think that it was produced by some american producer even for the first two, so I dont see the reason to make the third different.

I just cant wait to see the third part, heck, I didnt even know there was a third part anyways. And I must addmit I saw the first two illegaly, and it was in theaters here for merely couple of weeks. Im so sorry I didnt catch that... cause I would rather give money for the whole atmosphere, If you know what I mean....

Because of the movie, i am reading the novel now.  It came out last July in English.   Personally i cannot wait to see the rest of the films.  Even though they added somethings in the movie that were not in the book (as always), but at least the changes helped the movie plot.

I heard that the last movie was filmed in America,  I assumed that they would keep the language Russian though, because the movie is such a good example of Russian films.
