In an alternate present-day where magical creatures live among us, two L.A. cops become embroiled in a prophesied turf battle.
This is an astonishing documentary that will wring your heart while it bends your mind
I didn’t really have many expectations going into the movie (good or bad), but I actually really enjoyed it. I really liked the characters and the banter between them.
Close shines in drama with strong language, adult themes.
The joyful confection is coated in a sparkly gloss, bright enough to gleam from the darkest, most cynical corners.
Bright is a straight to Netflix film starring Will Smith and directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch). Being a fan of both Smith and the directed and having seing a lot of positove revoews from fans (mostly critics were panning), one was intiguied in watching the film. Having waited several months down after forgetting about this Bright, finally have decided in watching. After so, this film is completely dissapointing in what fans are saying. Seeing many audience reviews staying "critics are wrong", was more intrerested in watching the film.As a film, it starts off decent but eventually drags on and becomes something less than interested and tries hard at being something different as it falls short. As watching, it does have alot of similarities to End of Watch, as well as Suicide Squad, noting the same director. There are elements there but as a whole, Bright doesn't seem to fit. Much of the world where they live isn't too explained, as in how are there Orcs, Elves and other creatures among them, and what exactly year is it.Bright has a unique concept in potential and the trailers did make it look intriguing but overall the story feels quite generic and a mash up of something not great. As a whole the film is quite boring and it shouldn't given the cast and concept. Also a lot of F-bombs within the film, as it feels forced and pushed.Simply put, there is a reason as to why Bright went straight to Netflix as opposed to theaters worldwide. The critics were correct in their reviews and rating. Don't believe these "audience/fans" reviews.
At first, I liked the movie. Not good, not great, but watchable. Then, I watched some reviews on YouTube, rewatched the movie and realized that they were right. There's no charisma between the leads, it focuses too much on racial discrimination (even though that was a great message), and the "Elf woman who stole the wand from the antagonist and met our main characters" is forgettable. SPOILERS THE SCENE IN THE MOVIE THAT I REALLY HATE IS THE ONE WHERE JOEL EDGERTON'S CHARACTER IS KILLED BY FELLOW ORCS ONLY TO BE RESURRECTED BY THE ELF THEY MET. IT WAS POINTLESS!!!!!!!!!!!
I enjoyed the movie and thought it could do with follow up and expansions. Many critics claim that there isn't enough world building and that its superficial. If you are a fan of fantasy you will find that, no it isn't. The story line is great and the actors do well. There is enough hints in the movie as to the history and culture of the people and it covers its bases well. If you are expecting a lecture on the histories of that world, then you missed the point that the movie is made for enjoyment not "education".
Watched Bright with Will Smith(ID4) as Daryl Ward,Joel Edgerton(Midnight Special) as Nick Jakoby , Ike Barinholtz(Sisters) As Pollard , Lucy Fry(Vampire Academy) as Tikka, Veronica Ngo(Star Wars:The Last Jedi) as Tien, Jay Hernandez(Friday Night Lights) as Rodriguez, Edgar Ramirez(Gold) as Kandomere, and Noomi Rapace(What Happened To Monday) as Leilah .I really this Loved it was Buddy cop film with stakes also it blended the fantasy with the real world brilliantly also not to mention the unexpected twist but overall great development of the characters Also great characters and chemistry between Nick and Jakoby I couldve done without some of the Language but overall it was great excited about the sequel. Great Costume Design By Kelli Jones(Power Rangers)and Score By David Sardy(Monster trucks ) ,Cinematography by Roman Vasyanov(The East) and Amazing Direction by David Ayer(Suicide Squad) An Interesting Blend Of Real World and Magic 9/10
