Default Re: Night Watch (Timur Bekmambetov dir.)

Well put Maxivida, I'm hopeful for the future episodes - they cant be any worse than the Matrix sequels which really didn't grab me.

I didn't really go expecting the story to be anything new, so wasn't too dissapointed there. I did think that the whole prophesy, vortex, virgin bit was unnecessary though. It was a kind of add on that didn't seem to tie in withh the rest of the story at all although I suppose it may be returned to in later films.

It was the filming and the atmosphere that really got me. It was a bit like Sin City, but not as stylised, and in full colour, and it really felt like the dark underside of the Moscow in my head - as unfortunately I've never been.
