Fresh:

Fresh: Day watch is nonsense. But it's glorious nonsense.

- James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page, Saturday, October 18, 2008

Rotten: Watch's supernatural police and Bekmambetov's rich visual palette give the film enough strength at least to throw a couple elbows to set itself apart from other nameless films with plenty of effects, but little vision.

- Jason Morgan, Filmcritic.com, Tuesday, July 8, 2008

Audience Reviews

3 stars

A slight improvement on its predecessor mainly because this one knows how over the top and ridiculous this premise is and just runs with it at a breakneck pace without looking back. This one has more action, thrills, and humor than the first. It's also not as dreary. The story still makes little sense as it is happening, and the movie still has problems with figuring out what parts of the plot are important and which ones aren't, but this one is more entertaining than the first, mainly because the visuals are better and the eye candy quotient was raised. This series is off the wall craziness mixed with a little horror and humor. If that sounds like your thing, then give them a try.
