"Bright" was interesting. The first part laying the groundwork on how the Orcs were disdained by the humans and the distrust of Orc cops reminded of TV shows in the 60s and 70s where black cops treated badly by the force and thought as 'Uncle Toms' by their community. I felt like I was having flashbacks of watching shows from my childhood.

I agree with more context to the story. My wife and I were sometimes lost in the story. Once the main storyline developed, it was rather enjoyable. Wife and I both agreed that the volume of 'colorful metaphors' was gratuitous and didn't lend much to the story. A little is fine; too much becomes white noise.

All in all, it was decent story and I would like seeing the sequels.

Agreed, the Orc leaders made a choice 2000 years ago to follow the dark lord and lost the war and thus Humans have hated the Orcs since and they live in poverty pretty much, some humans live in poverty also while the Elves live in luxury, Orcs hate the cops and then You have that one Orc who is a cop and is hated by his own also.

So it made for a good movie, cannot wait for parts 2 and 3 or even a TV series.

Just watched that Tom Cruise movie The Mummy, it was another movie slammed by the critics, so I assume there wont be a part 2 to it now :(

I thought it was pretty good.
