Rated R · 2006
Many centuries ago, the forces of ultimate light and ultimate darkness, embodied in supernatural beings called "Others," squared off against each other atop a large bridge. It ended in a truce, with the light forces forming the Night Watch to keep tabs on the dark ones, and the dark ones similarly forming the Day Watch. Cut to present-day Moscow. Our hero, if we can call him that, is Anton (Konstantin Khabensky), a reluctant psychic, who discovers that the inevitable prophecy about a Chosen One may be about to come true, potentially tilting the balance of the struggle forever. If there's a weakness to Night Watch, it's that there are just too many supernatural beings with too many supernatural powers to really get a handle on, and no explanation for why they have the powers. The mythology is probably spelled out more clearly in the original Russian novel by Sergei Lukyanenko. But this is just part one of a trilogy. Though all may not be clear yet, there's enough to make you curious about the sequels.
