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

Goofs

When Ward and Jakoby first encounter Tikka at around 35 mins into the movie, as she falls onto the ground she is holding and using the wand, it's in her hand and glowing brightly, Ward yells "What is that, drop it!" after she shoots a car with it, then they take the wand. (If you look closely, Tikka is wearing gloves at the time the car explodes outside the safe house, so Daryl and Nick Assumed the wand set off the explosion just by being dropped by Tikka.)

Much later in the movie after running from everyone who wants the wand, she picks it up and uses it again, and Ward exclaims that it would have been very useful to know earlier that she could do that. See more »

Quotes

Daryl Ward: Let's give this motherfucker the wand.
Nick Jakoby: What?
Daryl Ward: Look, we're gonna get everybody in here killed, and then he's gonna take the damn wand anyway.
Nick Jakoby: I'm not giving that guy the wand. Over my dead body. He's gonna have to kill me first.
Daryl Ward: So you want to die, in a gunfight, in a nasty-ass titty bar? That's what you want?
Nick Jakoby: I don't wanna die anywhere.
Daryl Ward: Well, you know what? Now I do. Fuck it. I wanna die. Let's do it right now! We're gonna titty-bar-gunfight die! Let's do it, right here, right now! Are you ready...

A different take on the age old Buddy Cop movie
22 December 2017 | by gratto007See all my reviews

Just finished watching this movie on Netflix. I have to admit I actually loved it. It plays out along the lines of a buddy cop movie but with a new twist. The fantasy angle is quite good I thought and the humor was just right. If you have some time give it a shot, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
