Movie Reviews – Bright

Movie Reviews this week looks at the alternative futuristic sci-fi movie Bright starring the stalwart Will Smith (Indepedence Day).
We join the movie finding out that orcs, elves, and humans all live together in a futuristic alternative universe, where elves are in charge; the bourgeoisie of the planet, humans are the middle class, and orcs are not just the working class but are looked down upon, by both humans and elves. It does a very blatant comparison to any unjust society through any era of human civilisation and for this, it deserves recognition.
We meet Daryl Ward played by Will Smith (Independence Day), who is a cop looking just trying to survive till his pension in 5 years time. He has been paired up with the first LAPD orc police officer Nick Jacoby, played wonderfully by Joel Edgerton (Warrior), who is completely unrecognisable as the honour seeking orc. His personal battles of being a sellout to his race by being a cop, and never being accepted by his colleagues has been playe numerously in many a cop tv show, but not many have tried to apply that in such a futuristic universe as this.
In the routine of an incident, our two protagonists come into contact with an elf, Tikka played by Lucy Fry (Vampire Academy), who has a mythically wand, which apparently can give anybody their heart’s desire, the only problem being only a “bright” can handle it, anyone else who touches it is simply destroyed. What follows is a life and death struggle to preserve their lives whilst the owner of the wand, a powerful elf Leilah, played by the wonderful Noomi Rapace (Prometheus); as well as the LAPD are trying to get their hands on this wand.
Bright can be transposed into our modern world, with many of its themes, and anyone can recognise various political inferences in this movie, and it is an enjoyable sci-fi movie that will gather many fans.
