I have just been to the site and seen the trailer. Now I am highly psyched to see this film. Does anyone have any info on the film, besides what you see on the site?

Synopsis: Set in contemporary Moscow, “Night Watch (Nochnoi Dozor)” revolves around the conflict and balance maintained between the forces of light and darkness – the result of a medieval truce between the opposing sides. As night falls, the dark forces battle the super-human “Others” of the Night Watch, whose mission is to patrol and protect. But there is constant fear that an ancient prophecy will come true: that a powerful “Other” will rise up, be tempted by one of the sides, and tip the balance plunging the world into a renewed war between the dark and light, the results of which would be catastrophic. “Night Watch (Nochnoi Dozor)” is the first installment of a trilogy based on the best-selling sci-fi novels of Sergei Lukyanenko entitled Night Watch, Day Watch and Dusk Watch.
I merged your new made topic with this one.
And you can read here, that Diceman and I was kinda disappointed about the movie.
I’ve seen Night Watch 3 times. The narrative of the movie was very tough to follow… everything happens at 90 mph and you have to on your own after the movie is over and on repeat viewings piece together what happens and why. The visuals and cgi of the movie are interesting… but overall the blood sequence and the overall nihilistic noncommercial choices of the movie kept me engaged… and did I mention the blood sequence is awesome? Sadly, the hype for this movie is far better than the movie itself.
IMO they tried to tell and show to much differend stories at the same time. What do you think about this?
