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

Good Pacing and Entertaining modern fantasy dust up, set in a urban Los Angeles area, mixed within the racial aspects is the corrupted cop vs fair cop storylines. Its good, with well developed pacing.
But aside from a mostly solid effort, what really is instrumental here, is this is the biggest release of a movie that Netflix has done, thinking about this the other day, there are so many middling solid, but otherwise uselessly released movies to the theaters every year, failing to find a solid audience, usually because its not one of the more solid blockbusters. These movies could all be released direct to stream instead.
This really is the future of Cinema, those that jump on it, will do themselves a favor.
