Day Watch, the sequel to Night Watch, continues the battle of the Light and Dark as lead character Anton tries to find a way to correct everything that has gone wrong. That is the base plot line as this movie, just like Night Watch before it, actually has a lot of different things going on all at once, with a ton of characters that are, at times, hard to keep straight. Day Watch is longer than Night Watch, clocking in at 2 hours 25 minutes. The special effects are still there, though they are fewer and less effective here. This movie is not quite as dark as Night Watch, which makes sense, and focuses more on romance and emotion (at times).
It slows at times and at 145 minutes it can be a test to stick with the film, but the last half hour of this movie is simply outstanding and worth sitting through the slower stuff in the middle. I liked the movie a lot, though not quite as much as Night Watch. I recommend it, but only if you have seen and understand Night Watch as this one builds a lot on what happened in that film
