Bright - D. Ayer 2017

Will Smith is acting a very classic tough-guy cop in a very classic buddy-cop movie set in a very classic futuristic Los Angeles, surrounded - finally! something out of the ordinary! - by creatures from the Tolkien bestiary; elves and orchs mainly.

This combo did not exactly made my mouth water. Rather, I was prepared to sit this one out ("take one for the team" as I believe they say) as generally I do when the others watch superheroes or any action films.

It was a pleasant surprise, therefore, to find the beginning of the film much more interesting than I had anticipated! I watched almost all of it. Once the classic cop-hunt was on, however, it all turned into the same film you have all seen a hundred times before and so I took up my reading again. It didn't take much concentration to follow the plot.
