Bright – The movie starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton was released on Netflix on December 22, 2017.
The plot is fairly simple. The earth is inhabited by different races: humans, Orcs, Elves, and Fairies. Will Smith (Officer Ward) is paired with an Orc officer (Nick Jakoby).Ward gets shot with a shotgun by an Orc robber and Jakoby fails to catch him.
The movie which might seem kids friend is not. And underneath the whole magical atmosphere really lies racism.
The Human police officers are not thrilled to have another race as a peer. Likewise, Fairies and Elves are hated upon.
This isn’t anything new as we see racism and these type of behaviors on a daily basis and the other aspects of the movie do not bring anything that hasn’t been filmed before. Overall, Bright is just another movie starring big names but that delivers a little.
