The student of university Dasha leads usual life of the Moscow girl, without suspecting that powerful Devoted, conducting continuous fight against the Dark World, already took notice of it. The influential ancient Sorcerer plans to destroy a portal blocking a way to Shadows, absorbing vital strengths of people. And only Dasha possesses sufficient forces and love to stop approaching accident.
Specially for the film the new, eighth Stalin skyscraper was thought up. In it the HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTION in which Dasha and her acquaintances study settles down
The first thought which comes to mind after the completion of viewing new «The dark world», it is difficult to formulate words, but emotionally it is very simple: we (and I mean now both the audience, and the people connected with a cinema directly or indirectly) by all means should undertake something to stop vicious practice of manufacturing in parallel the feature film and television series. In recent years such projects on the Russian media space there was a set, but any of them did not work at cinemas how it is necessary to the real, big, strong cut out cinema. "Spy", «Burnt by the Sun 2», recent «Three musketeers» – all these feature films looked the ridiculous cripples deprived of an important internal, wrongly cut out, lifeless or tasteless. «Dark world: Balance» is a catharsis, the apogee of a bad whim to sit on two chairs. The film here is ruined by series. It is killed, buried and forgotten.
Founders of the film very much wanted to show the respect to the "Night watch" which has made on them a great impact, and invited for this purpose in Alexey Maklakov’s who has played in due time in "Patrols" picture
And after all the picture had potential, and potential quite good. Having completely rejected the first film which has left in 2010, the scriptwriters, the well-known science fiction writers Marina and Sergey Dyachenko constructed the new world, set new mood, occupied the "dark-world" Moscow new heroes and built up with new buildings. They made it with soul and an invention, with obvious love and a keen interest is is felt. And for the time being everything looked more than decently – yes, is simple-minded and, places too fondly, places very conditionally, but the general spirit was very even fighting. However in the middle of the film the series "got the best".
How? Very simply. Authors did not think up anything more intelligible, than to make the film of two series of future 12-serial teleproject. Into the film entered the first and, probably, final series episodes, and other teleliver was passed through a meat grinder and pressed in the five-minute "cutlet" more reminding cutting what use in sauce «In the previous episodes of series …». Yes, here directly so, it is plain, the musical clip showing the summary of series is inserted into the middle of the film. To tell that this focus kills the film, it not to tell anything. Imagine itself watching a final episode «In all heavy» or "Dexter". Who all these people? What occurs? Where all run? Approximately in the same situation there is audience of «The dark world». Certainly, the general outline is clear – a plot, frankly speaking, not Newton’s binomial, but it is impossible to hate the audience so.
