Night Watch (Russia, 2004)

I think this is the first contemporary mass audience Russian film I’ve seen and it yields nothing to Hollywood and, because of its national difference, is more interesting than much Hollywood genre fare. The battle between good and evil is given an interesting twist as it seems the evil ones are the equivalent of the Russian gangsters (one, though, looks like a chav!). Not sure what side Putin is meant to be on.

Some great visual effects and good performances. (DVD) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0403358/
