Storyline

In Los Angeles, humans live with orcs and elves in a world where fantasy creatures do exist. LAPD police officer Dayl Ward is the first human cop having the orc police officer Nick Jakoby as a partner. When Ward is shot by an orc and Jakoby does not capture the shooter, he questions whether Jakoby lets the fellow orc escape. During a patrol, Ward and Jakoby arrest a man that tells that there is a prophecy and Ward is blessed. Meanwhile, Internal Affairs press Ward to find the truth about the escape of the shooter so that they can fire Jakoby. The magic department of the FBI interrogates the man that belongs to the terrorist Shield of Light group which protects brights so that they can prepare for the return of the Dark Lord that will destroy the world. Ward and Jakoby are summoned to attend a disturbance and they stumble upon a Shield of Light safe-house where they arrest the elf Tikka and bag her magic wand. Soon they learn that Tikka is hunted down by the evil and powerful rogue elf... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Bored of the usually Hollywood "blockbuster"?
22 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

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.
