Movie Reviews – A Different Look at “Bright”
There have been so many movie reviews about 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. 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.
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.
You’ll see in the first scene that Nick Jacoby who is played by Joel Edgerton grabbing burrito for lunch while Daryl Ward, the character portrayed by Will Smith is shot by an orc. 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’re practicing family law and don’t address the authorities. 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 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.
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. 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.
