Rotten: What a rabid beast is Night Watch. What a pungent Russian fantasy-horror cheeseathon.
- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, March 3, 2006
Fresh: ...better than most of our domestic product...
- Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: uses fantasy, horror and gobsmacking special effects to explore the greyer areas of contemporary life.

Such a weird movie and almost incomprehensible at times, but that's kind've why it gets good after a while. The comedy is just sort of odd and everyone acts really animated and lively, it seemed like there was a style emerging. I think this movie is just so bloated and out of control that there was no way to make it easy for someone to grasp. There's a lot of mythology and prior knowledge that seems to be necessary before watching.

A Russian modern-day vampire film, very stylized and similar to Blade. There was a war between two sets of vampires centuries ago, and they made a truce with each other. Now in modern day Moscow, these two groups monitor each other for adherence to the truce. That's the general story. There is also a specific story about Anton, who is an "Other". This film had its moments, but I guess I'm a traditional vampire kinda girl. Plus, this got confusing towards the end of who was what and what they were doing. And who knew that a film about vampires could turn into a support message for the Pro-Life cause.
