Looking On The Bright Side of Movies

Movie Reviews – A Different Look at “Bright”

There are countless of movie reviews regarding the Netflix original film, Bright. It premiered December 22, 2017 and it was lead by Will Smith who played Daryl Ward and Joel Edgerton as Nick Jacoby. Basically, they’re LAPD beat cops who go to work, get the job done and go home. 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.

The movie is well produced and well played which is the reason why it is so surprising how it got bad reviews from its viewers.

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 are mostly gangsters and they are mostly about their clans. They do not care on the cops of the state and practicing family law. If you’re not part of the orc’s clan, then you are nothing to them, that’s it. 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. And this is all because of the race he has and his upbringing.

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. 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.

Since it’s a typical and blatant theme, the racial overtones aren’t much. Well, this shows that up to this time now, the American viewers don’t realize how racism is so saddening and degrading situation for any person be put into. Some try to say that this is all in the past whether you believe it or not.

In this movie reviews, you’ll see that there are some who just do not get it until the time comes that it is laid out in front of their eyes. 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.
