Netflix’s Bright 2017
Will Smith’s ‘Bright’ had its European premiere on Friday 15th December 2017 at BFI Southbank, London.
It is Netflix’s highest profile movie release in 2017 starring Will Smith, Joel Edgerton and Noomi Rapace.
Last year it was the Netflix’s controversial Okja which premiered at Cannes.
‘Bright’ is quite an essential movie for Netflix, as they are hoping it will help them attract more A-list talent to their film division.
The movie has some great action sequences, the overall acting was on point, but for me, Joel Edgerton who plays the Orc partner human cop (Will Smith) stood out to me. It was truly a fantastic performance.
The world they have created, where you see humans, orcs, elf’s and other magic folks leaving side by side is very much believable.
The movie also explores the cruel world of racial and social inequality, but I am not sure if it was executed properly.
Joel Edgerton’s character Orc cop is always racially oppressed by almost everyone in the film, but he absolutely has no voice.
The film will hit Netflix on December 22.
