Almost a great film, but the ending lets it down just a bit.
The concept is brilliant: buddy cop + _Lord of the Rings_ sequel. What you’d expect is a somewhat humorous popcorn action flick. Instead, Bright turns out to be quite dark and deep. It’s about racial prejudice, for a start. It’s about police corruption. It’s about hard choices and trusting people you don’t like. And, of course, it’s about good versus evil.
The Orcs are a stand-in for just about any oppressed minority. It’s a clever bit of allegory, if a bit obvious. Less obvious is the portrayal of the Elves, who turn out to be the arrogant, uber-entitled 0.1-percenters. If you always thought the elves in LOTR were a bit snooty, you’ll love this switcheroo.
Will Smith is as good as ever, playing an older and more world-weary version of his character from films like _I Robot_. Joel Edgerton is fine as the Orc, and Noomi Rapace seems to have been born to play an evil Elf.
Unfortunately, after a lot of gritty action superbly directed by Ayer, the ending arrives as a bit of an action-movie cliche. There was so much more meat here, in the characters, in the politics, in the weird magical backdrop. I was hoping for a more character-driven ending, instead of the usual mindless brute-force head-bashing (as superbly exemplified by every DC comix movie of recent years).
Nonetheless, Bright is well worth a watch. It fails in some of its higher aspirations, but reverts to being a very entertaining buddy-cop romp. Which isn’t so bad.
Ninety nine times out of a hundred, whenever I have a varying opinion with critics at large, I understand how we have both come to our separate opinions and move on with my day. About once a year though, there is a movie where all I can think about the vast majority disliking a movie is: “This world is fucking crazy”. The last time it happened was with _Chappie_, and today, it happened again with _Bright_.
_Final rating:★★★½ – I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time._
Bored of the usually Hollywood “blockbuster”?
This is by no means a perfect movie. There is character development and development of the world around the cast of characters that leaves many questions unanswered. Some of these answers are thrown quickly into the dialogue but don’t hold as much weight as they should. It leaves you wondering and asking questions about what is happening, but for a first movie trying to introduce you into the world Ward and Jakoby inhabit it does a good job of providing enough information to leave you wanting more. Bright has been much more than I expected.
Strange and awesome.
Otherworldly and full of action which is why Will Smith took the part. Joel Edgerton is barely recognizable and the story is sort of predictable but it doesn’t take away from the presentation. This is Street Kings for Will Smith. Noomi was a cool villain even though there is more than one. The gentrification was a nice touch since there is magic and sorcery involved it makes sense that there would be different classes of people/species and that it would be very prevalent. The action was relentless and bloody and Smith was a little more level headed and not as over the top as he is in Bad Boys or MIB. It seemed darker than his usual movies which is a good move on his part. Overall I enjoyed this and since a sequel has been announced, I guess I wasn’t the only one. Solid action movie and recommend.
