I honestly don't get what the critics wanted from this movie! Especially that one guy who called this the "worst movie of 2017". REALLY? That's a huge lie...what about The Emoji Movie or The Snowman, or Al Pacino's movie, The Hangman??? Anyway, if you're expecting Suicide Squad...STOP. It's nothing like Suicide Squad, in terms of the acting, the action, the emotional/serious moments and the overall quality. It's much, much better than that movie, for anyone who was comparing to that movie. Now, It's not Hacksaw Ridge or The Godfather type quality, it's a typical buddy-cop set-up in a twisted, yet fun, fantasy environment. Think Lethal Weapon/Training Day/End of Watch meets Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit. Sounds weird, but you'll be pleasantly surprised.The chemistry between Will and Joel is great, the action is great and pretty much anytime Will and Joel have serious moments those are basically some of the most memorable ones out of the whole movie. There are very minor flaws, but it doesn't take away from the enjoyment of the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed Bright and I think audiences will too, I mean, go ahead and google the audience reviews. It's a Netflix movie, if people can enjoy bad movies and shows on Netflix, then people will definitely like this one. It's clearly a "people's movie", not a "critic's movie". WATCH IT and ENJOY!

BOY, did the critics get this one wrong! WATCH and ENJOY!!Reviewed bydfoxxcVote: 8/10
I have never left a review on any website, but after reading the "professional" critic's reviews and then watching the film, I felt I had to respond.
First of all, thank you to all the viewers who have so far given this film a rating it deserves. It is a wonderful mashup of buddy cop films and the Lord of the Rings. The pacing might be a bit off in the second half of the film, but all in all, the movie had everything a good movie should. Fantastic world, funny characters you care about, and awesome action and suspense. Is this an academy award winner? No. It is exactly what you would expect. A fun, action film. I, for one, am glad Will Smith did this film.
As for the professional critics? All I can say is, they kind of missed the point. I don't know whether they were expecting a different movie, or if this is just a backlash against Netflix for encroaching on big Hollywood's Ticket sales. Either way, I think if you take a look at most review sites you will find a huge discrepancy between the so-called "professional" critics and viewer's like the ones that are leaving their reviews here. All I can say to those professionals? Don't quit your day job! Oh, wait! Maybe you should.
Firstly, let me just say regarding the critics score, if you can give The Last Jedi 86% and then give this 28% you have zero credibility. Sure, critics have always been harsh and sometime don't follow popular opinion, but that's just clearly pandering to the big studios so you're not black listed and trying to appear credible by slamming this film.
So, on to the review. I like the premise and really had high hopes, but it was a good movie rather than a great one. Its pretty much a mash up of Alien Nation, Training Day, End of Watch and Artemis Fowl (soon to be ruined by Disney's upcoming film no doubt).
It had all the makings of a great movie to kick start a TV series spin off, however I think it lacks the dynamic that Alien Nation had (dated, but worth a watch if you liked this). It essentially replaces aliens with magical creatures.
The effects and action were all solid and it ticked all the boxes, I just think the dynamic between Will Smith and his partner didn't work (at least in the first half) and where the Alien in Alien Nation suffered some hostility from a few bigots within the department, everyone just seemed to hate the Orc for no reason. I think a few bad apples rather than everyone being racist would have worked better and some work on the script between the two leads would have gained this another star or two, at no extra cost.
Is it GREAT, no, but its definitely worth a watch and I'll give season 1 a chance if they do a series spin off.
