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

Quotes

Daryl Ward: All right, look, I got the wand, but I need something.
Kandomere: You need forgiveness.
Daryl Ward: If I give you this wand, and let's just say, I don't know, somebody accused me of some dumb shit, like killing a bunch of cops, a man like you could fix that shit, right?
Kandomere: If you were protecting a weapon of magic from, let's say, corrupt individuals, there would be no charges.
Daryl Ward: That's exactly what happened... hypothetically.

Was so much better than I thought it would be
22 December 2017 | by boggie4758See all my reviews

I twist on buddy cop movie. Will Smith and the Orc play off each other perfectly. I could see this is how it would be if Middle Earth got pushed into our present day. The acting is good and the make up is excellent. Ok I loved the Orc and laughed at his one liners..If you want to watch something different then this is the movie for you. I liked it a lot.
