Anton Megerdichev goes dark with this fantasy and Dark World ends up as quite the amusement.
The pace of the story is hastened in the early going and the same can be said about the editing. A number of things are shrouded in mystery, which is fine, but the film becomes a bit difficult to get into. Fortunately, by the time the second half roles around and the fantasy portion of the plot takes over, Dark World becomes a shady mystical thriller that is the attention grabber.
While not exactly heavy on the action, this picture does have its share, and what confrontations do exist between the witches and the so-called evil sorcerer end up hampered by the editing. As for the makeup and effects, they are done pretty well.
Svetlana Ivanova is a fine lead with her mystic character, while Sergei Ugryumov is a suitable antagonist. There are a number of supporting characters, but a bunch of them suffer without much build up.
Dark World does take some time to sink in, but when it does it is an acceptable dark fantasy thriller.
