The main character starts off doing well but things start to go a bit wrong as the plot develops. From the start, a Sci-Fi film is revealed.<br/><br/>There&#39;s an annoying blonde in the film who is integral to the story, acting like a nemesis to the main character. She&#39;s fairly wooden in acting ability but also needed to counter the &#39;hero&#39;.<br/><br/>The first half of the film is damn good. Has some decent action, visual effects and a good sense of direction. If the film had stayed on this course, it could&#39;ve quite easily scored 8 or more as it really entertains.<br/><br/>However, the second part of the film is just odd, muddled, and let&#39;s the film down. The point of the plot, characters, etc, are just thrown away. Yes there are more action scenes but they seem to be sprinkled into the film at random.<br/><br/>Overall, this isn&#39;t a stinker as many other reviews seem to point out, but it does suffer from a weak second half.

&quot;A Rough Draft&quot; manages to be a pretty entertaining, highly conceptual sci-fi story. Much like &quot;Night Watch&quot;, the film&#39;s big theme is alternate realities, filled with near supernatural characters who have learned to manipulate and control destiny. It is instantly a fascinating concept and begs of intrigue. I found the film interesting from the beginning.<br/><br/>Although &quot;A Rough Draft&quot; suffers similar flaws as &quot;Night Watch&quot;, lack of depth in regards to character development and a true human touch, the movie gives us a fun ride with cool characters. The writing does hint at cookie-cutter hyperbole, the cast interact with enough comfort to create engaging story development and drama.<br/><br/>The special effects wag between creative high concept CGI elements and mockbuster aspiration. The film is visually stunning with various Moscows showcasing some exciting possible realities. There is some really memorable scenes that almost brings to mind &quot;Inception&quot; level effects, my favorite involves a Matryoshka doll.<br/><br/>Overall &quot;A Rough Draft&quot; is a very entertaining, highly engaging sci-fi action movie with cool effects and stellar cinematics. It isn&#39;t quite as high impact as &quot;Night Watch&quot;, but it is a proper effort. Still the film does lack true depth inregards to connecting on a personal level. The characters don&#39;t completely feel fully drafted. That being said, the movie is worth watching and should be entertaining to sci-fi fans.

Sergey Lukyanenko&#39;s books are a treasure trove of ideas, and should lend themselves well to adaptations. Night Watch was a good one. Chernovik, however, is a mess. Too much has been crammed into a single movie. The visuals are spectacularly, but the numbers of characters, worlds, the weird transitions, the lack of character development or even fleshing, makes it nearly impossible to follow. Paradoxaly, the rhythm lulls several times in the movie, and keeping attention is difficult. Too bad.
