Anton Gorodetsky (Khabensky), a member of the Night Watch - an ancient order charged with enforcing a truce between the forces of good and evil - is framed for murder. Meanwhile, Dark Lord Zavulon (Verzhbitsky) schemes to use Anton’s alienated son to start an apocalyptic war.
It’s perhaps a shame the series was wrapped up inside two films - though there are loopholes for further adventures. It relates to Night Watch the way X2 relates to X-Men: you need to have seen the earlier film to have a hope of following the plot, but it’s a bigger, deeper, more exhilarating ride.
