Movie Reviews – A Different Look at “Bright”
There are countless of movie reviews regarding the 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 basically LAPD beat cops who simply want to get their job done and go home. There are three major categories of characters you’ll notice in the film and these are the humans, orc thugs and elves. As a matter of fact, since the day it was released, there have been various movie reviews written on such topic.
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 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. Both characters have funny and awkward interactions throughout the movie and some serious moments as well.
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 are not an orc and not a member of the clan, then you are just nobody to them. 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.
Furthermore in our movie reviews, the partners take an alternate route on Elf Town where you might notice that not all elves living there 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.
Racial overtones are not that much as they’re a typical and blatant theme. 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. 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.
