Bright ★★★

Not nearly as bad as the chatter might have you believe, Bright nevertheless never rises above the level of 'just fine'. Perhaps that's down to the paint-by-numbers buddy cop thriller structure. Or better yet, Max Landis' far-too-smart-for-its-own-good screenplay, which presupposes a general audience actually giving a shit about the question 'What if Middle Earth social divisions were applied to our contemporary world?' Yeah, me neither. Still, it's an interesting failure.
