There are countless of movie reviews regarding the 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. The orc thugs, evil elves and humans are basically the three main groups of characters you’ll find in the film and each are fighting for their survival. From the day it was first released, it has accumulated varying movie reviews whether you believe it or not.
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 movie’s first scene, Will Smith’s character Daryl Ward is shot by an orc while Nick Jacoby, his partner which is played by Joel Edgerton grabs a burrito for lunch. Throughout the film, the two characters have these awkward connections but they do have these serious moments as well.
In this film, the orcs are typically gangsters and value their clans the most. They don’t show any sign of respect on the state caps and practice family law. If you’re not part of the orc’s clan, then you are nothing to them, that’s it. His partner totally has nothing to do with him and each and every cop on their team think that he does not deserve wearing their badge. And this is all because of the reason of the upbringing and race Jacoby has.
As we move on in our movie reviews, the partners take shortcut and cruise through the Elf Town, you may notice something and it’s that not all elves are rich and oblivious. You will notice as well that all of them are white and the only orcs in sight are the chauffeur, Nick, and also, a quick glimpse of another orc who wears a construction vest.
Racial overtones are not that much as they’re a typical and blatant theme. It seems that American viewers don’t realize just yet how sad and degrading racism is. And believe it or not, you’ll hear that some are discrediting this, that it was all in the past.
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.
