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.

In the strip club, a woman is seen blinking a nictitating membrane - a third eyelid seen in some reptiles, sharks, and birds. Will Smith's character in Men in Black (1997), an NYPD cop, sees the same blinking happen on an alien he's pursuing (and the catalyst for K recruiting him). See more »
During the shootout. the SUV's windows are broken in scenes where Ward and Jakoby are crouching, and not initially broken when they stand up to shoot. See more »
You're fearless. You always know what to do. What you did tonight, that's what it takes for an Orc to get blooded. An act of great bravery. To me, you're like a blooded human.
I used to be like you. Think you can save everybody and fix everything and... Now I just pretend to be a good dude. You still are one.

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.
