It's a high-energy blast.
75
Premiere
The crazy fantasy world of this saga is plenty compelling and quirky.
75
While the sequel to "Night Watch" is an imperfect film, it's always interesting.

L.A. Weekly
For all the vampires and blown-up cars, you'll see no sadism for the hell of it, only an oddly sweet-tempered mix of hyperbole, understatement and profoundly Slavic philosophizing about guilt, freedom and responsibility.
67
The sequel is a minor wackjob head trip.
63
New York Post
Though overlong, there are many stunning special effects, including a car chase up the side of a building, as well as the sort of wild animated subtitles that turned up in "Night Watch."

New York Daily News
Putting an entertainingly outlandish spin on "Matrix"-style action, Bekmambetov leans toward flamboyant special effects and operatic overacting.
60
Village Voice
The worst thing Bekmambetov has picked up from his American models is the tendency of megasequels to aggrandize material grown enervated, to compensate for thinness by spreading out.
50
Variety
Bursting with incident and FX, Day Watch will delight fans of its predecessor, "Night Watch," but further annoy those antipathetic to the Russkie-made supernatural franchise.
50
Unfolding in a decrepit, present-day Moscow, Day Watch dazzles and confuses with equal determination.
