Rotten Tomatoes Rating For Netflix Movie 'Bright' Not Looking Shiny

Netflix has become a powerhouse in recent years with the company now producing its own movies. That being said, the company still has a long way to go if it wants to compete with the bigger Hollywood studios out there.

'Bright' is a new film written and directed by Suicide Squad's David Ayer.

The movie stars Will Smith in the title role as Daryl Ward who is a cop and teams up with an orc partner named Nick Jakoby played by Joel Edgerton.

The premise of the movie is about an alternate version of Earth where humans live with fantasy creatures such as orcs, fairies, elves and more. Things get dangerous for the cop duo when a magic wand gets on the loose.

Despite being an original idea, the critics have not been kind to 'Bright' as the movie currently only has a rating of 31 percent over on Rotten Tomatoes.

The average score is a poor 3.7/10 meaning most of the reviews are two stars out of five. The critical consensus can be seen down below.

Bright tries to blend fantasy, hard-hitting cop drama, and social commentary -- and ends up falling painfully short of the mark on all three fronts.

Despite the less than stellar reviews, Netflix has already ordered a sequel with Will Smith set to return.

With the amount of money Netflix gets every year, it has the power to green light a lot of original films and TV shows.

Bright should be available now for you to watch on Netflix. It's possible the general audience will like the movie more than the critics do.
