Horror Movie Reviews: Daywatch

Updated on January 29, 2014

Daywatch Reviewed

Daywatch is the second and final instalment of an intended trilogy in the series as I researched a bit on why there was no third instalment I was presented with the reason that Fox the company that funded the trilogy project wasn't really prepared to do so, but I could not categorically find out the true reason, but suffice to say that Hollywood likes to do this now and again to show it's authority, anyway back to the film at hand

Whilst re-watching the film to review it I should have realised that the writers had wrapped up the storyline at the end and gave it a rather abrupt conclusion, but a satisfying one that brought some sense of ending to the first film Nightwatch.

Although like the first film Nightwatch there are some usual cultural foul ups that don't translate very well and maybe in a little speculation was the reason why funding could have been pulled for the final instalment and instead we got this condensed film.

There are hardly any gory moments really in this film, but there are a few action scenes filled with some good special effects and that I suppose is what set it apart from it's predecessor Nightwatch and it tries so very hard to up the action, but just when it gets started it well ends, the promise and the potential of some good fights are squandered and let slip for some comic moments that don't really work.

As usual the film is in Russian with english subtitles, so concentration is needed to follow the complex but so so plot, Like Nightwatch there is some pointless dialogue between some characters that when you think about it, it doesn't add anything to the story and you feel a little mixed up about the focus of the story and the villain still acts a bit camp.

All in all I think that this was a rushed project that only served as a way in for the director to make some Hollywood movies for American audiences, whilst it had some neat ideas along the way it also had it's fair share of dull and not very interesting parts.

Watch it for the thrill ride in small doses and for some of the artistic action scenes and also because it adds to a piece of that huge world cinema market.

Daywatch is slightly better than Nightwatch, but only by a hairy whisker!

      Cheers Ixxy! this was the sequel to Nightwatch and there was no third instalment which is why I thought this was rushed to condense the film into one like they did....oh well!

      A remake would in this case be a brilliant idea...cheers Skyfire!

      Yes it is a shame as the ideas that were presented would have made for a better film project in 3 equal parts of the intended trilogy, but alot of the story wasted time with the boring bits more than the exciting parts that could have been explored more.

      Films from around the world make up a good amount of variation to take a break from the usual blockbuster.

      That sounds so frustrating, that they had to combine the second and third movies and rush them. It probably would've come out better as a trilogy.
