Netflix “Bright” Review

Booredatwork’s “Thunder E” shares his thoughts on Netflix‘s upcoming movie, Bright. The film stars Will Smith (Ward) and Joel Edgerton (Jakoby) as LAPD officers in a sci-fi version of Los Angeles filled with orcs, elves, and minotaurs. Ward and Jakoby are cops with completely different backgrounds. Jakoby is an orc who is hated by other orcs for choosing to be a cop while Ward is a human that, like all other humans in Bright, despises orcs for choosing to fight alongside an evil dark lord hundreds of years ago.

Bright follows this duo as they go on a routine patrol through Los Angeles one night and encounter a darkness that ultimately alters their future and the world.
