Bright (2017) Review


Bright is a 2017 American urban fantasy action film directed by David Ayer, written by Max Landis, and starring Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Édgar Ramírez, and Ike Barinholtz.
The film is set in an alternate present in which humans and mythical creatures co-exist and details an LAPD police officer and his orc partner confronting racism and police corruption while protecting a magic wand and the elf girl who wields it.
Principal photography began in November 2016 in Los Angeles. The film was released worldwide on Netflix on December 22, 2017. While it has received largely negative reviews from critics, it has become one of Netflix's most streamed movies ever.
Humans coexist with other sentient races, notably orcs and elves. While Magic is known to be real, its practice is illegal. Rare magical artifacts known as the magic wands exist, but only a very few individuals called "Brights" can wield them without dying.
In Los Angeles, veteran LAPD officer Daryl Ward has been involuntarily partnered with Nick Jakoby, the nation's first orc police officer, equally detested by his brother officers for his race and other orcs for being a policeman.
Ward's relationship with Jakoby has been awkward since Ward was wounded by an orc armed robber that Jakoby failed to apprehend and the LAPD's Internal Affairs division suspects Jakoby let the robber escape on purpose.
