Consensus: Day Watch is frequently cheesy but it offers enough twists, surprises, and inventive action sequences to maintain viewer interest.

Chicago Reader

Narrative incoherence continues to reign supreme.

Time Out

Madly over-plotted, with overlapping time frames and puzzling sub-plots, it makes no concessions to neophytes.

Although more flashily assembled, pic's relentless onslaught charms less over a running time almost 25 minutes longer.

[Director] Bekmambetov is a reckless and juvenile storyteller with a regrettable knack for empty spectacle.

It delivers more cutting-edge eye candy but defies any attempt at understanding.

A slight improvement on its predecessor mainly because this one knows how over the top and ridiculous this premise is and just runs with it at a breakneck pace… More

At some point, I felt really stupid watching this. I mean it made no sense. But this movie isn't that terrible. Though I don't recommend it to watch.

There was a point around the beginning of Day Watch where I thought it might actually be better than its predecessor, Night Watch. The impressive but… More
