There have been so many movie reviews about Netflix original film, Bright. The movie premiered on 2017, December 22 and is starred by Will Smith and Joel Edgerton who played the character of Daryl Ward and Nick Jacoby accordingly. They are two regular Los Angeles police officers who just want to do their job. There are three major categories of characters you’ll notice in the film and these are the humans, orc thugs and elves. From the day it was first released, it has accumulated varying movie reviews whether you believe it or not.
Generally, the film has seen some negative feedback from its viewers which is quite a mystery as the movie is indeed well produced and well played.
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. Nick and Daryl have awkward and funny interactions all throughout the film and of course, they have serious moments too.
Orcs in this film value their clans the most and have a gangster attitude. They don’t show any sign of respect on the state caps and practice family law. You are nobody to these orcs if you’re not part of their clan. His partner has got nothing to do with him and almost all cops in their team just thinks that he’s no deserving to wear the 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’ll notice at the same time that all of them are white and there are just three orcs in the scene and these are the chauffeur, Nick, and also the one wearing a construction vest.
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. This movie is basically not only an opportunity to make a fantasy movie with big stars like Will Smith but also, the producers and the rest of the team have used this as a channel to provide an approach to real world problems.
