Day Watch 

Based on a trilogy of Russian best-sellers, Day Watch, which told of an ancient feud waged between the forces of light and dark, was a huge hit in Russia and went on to make a decent chunk of change in the States. Day Watch dawns with a whiplash refresher course before diving into an inspired set piece concerning the provenance of the Chalk of Fate. This hilariously low-fi magic implement will be sought by hero Anton (Konstantin Khabensky) to thwart the diabolical schemes of Zavulon (Viktor Verzhbitsky), a nefarious, nouveau-riche Day Watcher who masterminds a standoff between the Great Others with the help of a vixen in cherry-red leather. Rad, no? Actually, no. Strange to say in a season of mind-splitting mayhem, but not nearly enough shit gets blown up in Day Watch.
