For a good hour and change, the film is a big toy box that teases you out of the Gloom.

David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture, 2007-07-07

 

It has a refreshing Old World take on a never-ending fantasy war between vampires and the forces of 'light.'

Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel, 2006-03-03

 

Clarity may be lost, but rare is the movie that grabs viewers by their throats and never lets go. Bekmambetov's Night Watch is one of the grabbers.

Bob Longino, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 2006-03-02

 

The faux mythology may be cheesy, the grandiose plot stretched thin and full of holes, but underneath the recycled story and style is a hint of something troubling and real.

Kerry Lengel, Arizona Republic, 2006-03-02

 

Even though you couldn't call it a great science fiction movie, on the level of Tarkovsky's Solaris and Stalker it's often a great, heart-pumping, blow-you- to-the walls movie experience.

Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, 2006-02-25

 

While the movie's inspirations might be glam-Hollywood action fantasies, Night Watch fairly wallows in damp, post-Soviet decay.

Peter Howell, Toronto Star, 2006-02-24

 

Although it doesn't have Kate Beckinsale, her guns ablazin', vamped out in the latest vampire-slaying couture, Night Watch is vastly more fun than the similar-themed Underworld pics.

Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2006-02-24

 

The original plan was to remake Night Watch in English, and then thought was given to dubbing it. Thankfully both ideas were scuttled, as the film's Russian-ness and its allusions to post-communist fears and frustrations add greatly to its appeal.

Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press, 2006-02-24

 

Night Watch is shabby chic, with hints of Russia's great silent-cinema past.

Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, 2006-02-24

 

As opposed to the dreary domestic dramas that are [Russian] cinema's stock in trade, this one is a full-stops-out fantasia that is often disgustingly gloppy and looks as if it was birthed by the Wachowski brothers and Quentin Tarantino.

Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor, 2006-02-23

 

The punchy, nonstop visual effects crowd out coherent storytelling.

Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, 2009-10-20

 

What a rabid beast is Night Watch. What a pungent Russian fantasy-horror cheeseathon.

Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, 2006-03-03

 

This mostly incoherent, enormously eccentric helping of mayhem breaks into so many fragments that watching the movie can be a bit like trying to assemble the pieces from several jigsaw puzzles.

Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News, 2006-03-03

 

Night Watch was one of the most popular movies ever released in Russia. That just proves there's no accounting for taste, in film or in human sacrifice.

Michael Booth, Denver Post, 2006-03-03

 

Goth thrill-junkies will probably get a giddy charge out of this overheated fantasy. The rest of us can have an equivalent experience by putting our brains in a blender and hitting puree.

Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2006-03-02

 

Though Night Watch is impressive at creating atmosphere, the movie is an impenetrable narrative tangle with plot strands running in every direction.

Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail, 2006-02-24

 

If [Director] Bekmambetov had any skill in actually telling a story, his kitchen-sink trilogy would be something to celebrate. It presently qualifies as a dubious achievement.

Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times, 2006-02-24

 

Night Watch works better as a demo reel for the state of Russian effects work than as a first installment in an epic trilogy.

Peter Debruge, Miami Herald, 2006-02-24

 

Unfortunately, by Hollywood standards, Night Watch is about three Wookies and two Neos short of convincing. All the gobbledygook is in place, but the special effects are minimal and somewhat frustrating.

Tom Long, Detroit News, 2006-02-24

 

Ultimately, it's a formulaic, predictable take on a Hollywood staple: the vampire horror film. That's a pretty tired genre, no matter what language it's told in.

Claudia Puig, USA Today, 2006-02-23
