We gave it a B-

Sergei Lukyaenko’s Day Watch, the second installment in the best-selling Russian trilogy, is told from the perspective of a comely witch who has aligned herself with the forces of Darkness. That is, until she meets a handsome Light One.

For Fans of…
Slick action, attractive young wizards, events that threaten the fragile balance of good and evil.

Lowdown
Indigestible chunks of The Matrix, Harry Potter, and Star Wars make this undercooked serving of sci-fi/fantasy stew hard to swallow.
