It’s an avalanche of conflicting movie ideas all jammed into one.
They’ve been part of the Earth forever.
Tolkien’s Middle-earth evolved into 2017, you might have the world of Bright.
Instead, the central story is about a police officer named Ward (Will Smith) who is partnered with Jakoby (Joel Edgerton), the first orc police officer in history.
That dynamic sets up a slew of possibilites, and Bright seemingly explores them all simultaneously.
It’s also hinted that Ward was partnered with Jakoby out of spite, and then there’s a backstory about a shooting, Ward’s family is worried about him, internal affairs is on their case, and so on and so on.
