It had been fulfilling today… Watch 2 good films. The first one was Day Watch also known as Night Watch 2. Watch Night Watch and it was a really ice film about vampires. Day Watch is no more about vampire killing people rather it is more abut the Light and Dark side of a Fantasy Epic. Anyway it is a Russian film. Timur Bekmambetov, director for the movie have a really good sense of visual and style for such a fantasy like film. It is kind of an art house film. However, the “Why like this” “Why like that” reaction of the audience somehow keep us stick to the movie till the end.

Apart from the story which I don;t really understand, the cinematography and set design is really great, part of the reason that keeps me watching though I am lost with the story at times. The CGI and car chase scene make it feels like a hollywood blockbuster, but wait a minute, it is a Russian film. This proves that Russian film industry have the capability to make movie same as those in Hollywood with better visual and unique style. The ending credits was also interesting where the driver drive through the city and credits are shown on buildings neon light. Look like part of the movie and makes the audience stick to the credits till the end.

A long 2 1/2 hour film and my verdict 3.5/5 stars. 🙂
