Day Watch

3

A Muscovite Matrix for horny teens, this intoxicating urban fantasy builds on the Blade-like mythologies of Night Watch. As overstuffed with narrative fuss as the Harry Potters, it follows Anton (Konstantin Khabensky), one of a horde of ‘Others’, who’ve been necromancing hell out of each other since the dawn of time. Set-piece cinema like this works best on the big screen, but as cars mount buildings, shape-shifting lesbians mount each other and cities crumble in CG shrapnel, the goth operatics will make even the most rigid, cynical jaws hit the floor. Minor extras.
