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. Basically, they’re LAPD beat cops who go to work, get the 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. From the day it was first released, it has accumulated varying movie reviews whether you believe it or not.
There are negative feedback from the viewers of the film which is actually confusing since the movie is well played and well produced.
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. Throughout the film, the two characters have these awkward connections but they do have these 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 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 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’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.
The racial overtones aren’t much because they are 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. 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. Basically, this movie isn’t just a chance to make fantasy movie with big names in Hollywood such as Will Smith but also, the team has used this opportunity to show approach on real world problems.
