We gave it a B-

The second installment of the Russian horror-fantasy series that tracks a modern-day war between immortals follows 2006’s Night Watch, which managed Matrix-esque effects on a mere $6 million budget. As we speak, director Timur Bekmambetov is prepping a third film — in English this time — but still sticking with the formula that turned Day Watch into a blockbuster back home. ”Your way is much more expensive.” he says about Hollywood. ”Whatever money we have we make it work — not the other way around.” (June 1)
