Overview

Nick Nolte and Ewan McGregor star in the American remake of the thriller Nightwatch presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen. Dimension has done acceptable work on this title making sure that all areas of the picture are clear of dirt and edge enhancement. The colors are all vibrant and clean with the black levels looking effectively solid. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and is also very well done. Directional effects are used generously throughout the film with all aspects of the dialogue, effects, and music sounding clear, concise, and distortion free. Also included on this disc is a Dolby French soundtrack. Extra features for Nightwatch are kept to the bare minimum, including a theatrical trailer for the film, as well as sneak peek trailers for Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead, Albino Alligator, Monument Avenue, Rounders, and The Crossing Guard. While the video and audio portions of this disc are nice, the supplemental features leave much to be desired.

I love this movie (mostly because Ewan is in it). It was the scariest movie I have seen in a long time. I was on the edge of my seat through the whole thing. Ewan McGregor is so great, he pulled off a pretty good American Accent. He is so talented and cute I want to see all of his movies!!!

"Nightwatch" is a 1997 English-language treatment of the original 1994 Danish "Nattevagten", both directed by Ole Bornedal. Same deal as the recent "The Grudge" (Ju-on) by Japanese director Takashi Shimizu. "Nightwatch" is a very creepy movie, with moments of voyeuristic intensity that are repellent to the level of a David Lynch flick. There is some outstanding acting in spots, particularly by actress Alix Koromzay, who plays a prostitute with a forlorn, hopeless sincerity that is excruciating to watch. Despite the previous reviews, Ewan McGregor doesn't bring that much to the movie and actually adds to the overall weirdness with his Americanized accent and puzzled, elfin features. He's a good actor but is either miscast or misused in this movie. Nick Nolte has probably had few scarier characters to play, but has been scarier playing less frightening roles. He does polish up his diction and delivery, but it's still the same whiskey-and-gravel voice that inhabits anything he portrays, and it's hard to see him as anything but Nick Nolte. This film once again reinforces the difference between European and American audience tastes. Despite being as bloody, creepy, genuinely nasty, but far more intelligent and stylish than most better-known thrillers of its type, I assume it sank like a rock when released. That's a shame, because it is well worth checking out, with a lot of interesting visuals and production details. I bet the tall man with flowing blonde hair, seen in a group at the end of the movie, is a director cameo. The picture of the condemned man in the security room is Lewis Paine/Powell, the psycho Lincoln assassination conspirator who brutally slashed and stabbed Secretary of State William Seward. And I'll never again hear the children's song "This Old Man" without flashing on this movie.
