There have been so many movie reviews about Netflix original film, Bright. It was premiered on the 22nd of December 2017 and starred by Will Smith and Joel Edgerton who played Daryl Ward and Nick Jacoby respectively. They are two regular Los Angeles police officers who just want to do their job. There are three main groups of characters in this film actually, the orc thugs, evil elves and the humans who fought for their survival. As a matter of fact, since the day it was released, there have been various movie reviews written on such topic.
There are negative feedback from the viewers of the film which is actually confusing since the movie is well played and well produced.
In the first scene of the movie, Daryl Ward, Will Smith’s character is shot by orc while his partner Nick Jacoby that’s played by Joel Edgerton grabs burrito for lunch. Both characters have funny and awkward interactions throughout the movie and some serious moments as well.
Orcs in this film are mostly gangsters and they are mostly about their clans. They’re practicing family law and don’t address the authorities. You are nobody to these orcs if you’re not part of their clan. His partner has totally nothing to do with him and every cop on the team sees him as a stunt and not someone supposed to be wearing a badge. This is all rooted to his upbringing and race at the same time.
As we move onto our movie reviews, the partners take a shortcut and cruise along the Elf Town and here you might notice that not all elves are oblivious and rich. In addition to that, there are also three orcs that you’ll find in this scene and these are the one who is wearing a construction vest, the chauffeur and Nick.
Since it’s a typical and blatant theme, the racial overtones aren’t much. It seems that American viewers don’t realize just yet how sad and degrading racism is. Some try to say that this is all in the past whether you believe it or not.
In such movie reviews, it showed that people would not always get it until the time has come that it’s right in front of them. As a matter of fact, this movie isn’t just a way for making a fantasy movie film with stars like Will Smith because the producers and the team have took advantage of it by using this as a channel to show a viable solution to real life problems.
