Let’s Talk About… ‘Bright’ (2017)

Netflix’s first blockbuster film Bright is now streaming for the service. Reviews haven’t been too kind to the property, with some saying it looks like it was built by an algorithm so that it will check off every “Because You Watch…” box.

The film does have some decent talent involved. David Ayer (Suicide Squad, Fury) directs the film, and Will Smith stars in it. Netflix has also ordered a sequel, but we’ll see if they will move forward given the reception. This film cost $90M so it wasn’t exactly cheap.

Synopsis: In an alternate present where humans and fantasy creatures—Orcs, Fairies, Elves, Centaurs, Dwarves etc.—have co-existed since the beginning of time, human LAPD officer Daryl Ward (Will Smith) and Orc rookie officer Nick Jakoby (Joel Edgerton) embark on a routine patrol night, only to discover an ancient—but powerful—artifact: a magic wand, that was thought to be destroyed, and encounter a darkness that will ultimately alter the future and their world as they know it.
