This is an example of a movie that would be better off as a TV series. There was so much information that they had to frontload that by the time you got to the plot it just became explosions and killing people. As a TV series they could really get into the characters and you could more gradually figure out what was going on.
What "nice" racists think of black people. Manifested straight out of the white supremacist imagination where they can have a black stand in for their personal masculinity (a la Will Smith) provided that Black people are then also substituted in for literal monsters. Two notes to self. Illuminates what American cops see when they shoot black people (orcs) and also brings up racial presentation in Lord of the Rings.
I was primed to expect the worst, but "Bright" probably wouldn't have been too bad - if it had come out twenty years ago during Will Smith's box office prime, with a better screenwriter attached. Pairing the buddy cop genre with a contemporary fantasy setting is this film's one big idea, and it has none beyond that except to offer the viewer a ceaseless string of competently-executed shootouts and car chases.
The setting could make this sort of an American District 9 (and with fantasy, where Blomkamp uses classic sci-fi dystopia). Too bad the narrative makes this little more than a cop flick: Car chases and gunfight every 15 minutes, a cop fighting the system, running away from mayhem as much as trying to do the right stuff. Just like the vampires, orks and elves and the likes of it are becoming trivial, even boring.
Ayer, dopo l'ingiustificabile gaffe rappresentata da "Suicide Squad", si ripropone a braccetto con Netflix in una prova migliore della precedente (ci voleva poco), ma comunque molto scarsa. Un ammasso indecifrabile tra Bad Boys, Wolf Among Us e Training Day, che nel cercare di coprire tre generi differenti, finisce per fallire su ogni fronte narrativo. L'idea alla base è pure interessante, il problema è lo sviluppo.
A terrible film. Netflix really churns out some terrible product sometimes and this is one of those times. I would say Noomi Rapace is the only redeeming part of this film, as the rest of the actors, and director phone it in big time. A total waste of my time. Avoid
The concept is really interesting but unfortunately lack smartness and consistency. With few things approached differently i think that this movie wouldn't have been called the worst movie of 2k17.But is not fair anyway to call it that worst. David Ayer seems like is in a bad way lately. 5.5/10 P.S. A sequel is on the way
2/10. BRIGHT attempts at various points to be a gritty crime story, a buddy-cop police procedural, an epic fantasy adventure, and a racial commentary, but fails to deliver on all accounts. There was an opportunity for world building, but the logic of this quasi-magical world feels thin and inconsistent--BRIGHT spends much tile detailing how orcs are people too but Will Smith can execute a fairie in his yard?
