A father has a recurring dream of losing his family. His nightmare turns into reality when the planet is invaded by a force bent on destruction. Fighting for their lives, he comes to realize an unknown strength to keep them safe from harm.
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

I just watched it and started to look online for more information about the "universe" of the movie, which I wouldn't have done if I didn't like the movie and stumbled over the movie ratings and critics. It's really confusing because the movie looked great and I had fun watching it. The orcs looked fantastic, the elfs were bitchy and Will Smith was Will Smith. The only thing I didn't like was the face Will is doing so much lately. I think the face situation started in After Earth... he needs to shake that off. Everything else was fun.
Maybe the critics hyped themselfs to much by saying this will "end hollywood" and stuff. But instead it is a great action movie sponsored by Netflix with fantasy and social/racial elements in it.
