Default Movie Review: Bright

Well, I guess Bright is the closest we will ever get to see Shadowrun on screen. I do think a pure Shadowrun-series would have been more interesting, but it would have taken much more world-building.

I liked the movie. Was good action, and most stuff for the world-building was done. They could have done more though. Especially concering the status of Brights.

I really liked the villaneous elves. They kicked ass. Especially Noomi Rapace as Leilah.

Will be interesting to see where they go with the sequel. I think unless they decide to go the Lethal Weapons-route (which I sadly think they will do), they will have to ramp up the fantasy-elements.

What I didn't like though, was the way the orcs looked. Neither did I like the way the faeries looked (they looked like something Jeff Easly would draw. Meaning they looked chaotic stupid). Also I am not sure casting Will Smith in the lead was such a good idea. He is too two-dimensional as an actor, and it didn't quite fit in the gritty setting.

I enjoyed Bright. It had a few pacing issues, and I wasn't fond of the orc design either, but the action was fun and the story was well put together. It had enough worldbuilding to easily support a sequel (or Netflix series) which I'd watch gladly, but the reviews were mostly atrocious. Not sure how it performed with viewers, or even how Netflix measures such things.
