Night Watch — Fantasy lovers will be interested in this grimy Russian battle — 7*/10

  • Scenario: Very interesting background story and setup, as well as a world with captivating inner workings. Good intro, intrigue and ending.
  • Dialogs: Won't comment on the account of being in Russian. The subtitles have nice animation, making the dialogs easier to assimilate for the readers.
  • Characters: The main one is well developed, the others are simple, but varied and non-stereotypical.
  • Actors: Good work, but difficult to say when you don't speak a word of Russian.
  • Photography: The choppy camera work in combat scenes serves nicely, but is probably there to simplify the edit and cover budget limitations. The grimy sets and decors are very barbaric and well used. Nice costumes.
  • Sound: Nice music and score.
  • Special effects: Acceptable, but mostly covered up in edit to save money, because the few ones that are there in full are not that good.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Who is it for? Mostly for fantasy fans who want to see something different. Others should probably pass.
