They end up drawing a lot of attention to the questionable design of the creatures, to the point that I was almost waiting for the actors to laugh. [Full Review in Spanish]

Bright feels like an ambitious experiment with a noble subtext, which could easily have been made with entirely human characters. Perhaps then it might have felt less laboured and contrived.

A pretty straight retread of Ayer's previous gang-banging work -- even recycling the absolute worst bit of Training Day.

...there's a bunch of shooting and stabbing, explosions, and general bloodiness. It's all very dark (literally) and -- I imagine for the non-geeky -- Bright is as hard to follow as it is to see.

Bright succeeds with its ideas but fails with its execution.

is a hybrid story -- urban fantasy with social commentary -- in which its differents parts never fit together and that never decides which way to go. [Full review in Spanish]

Bright is a flat, generic action film lacking in suspense with a racial allegory that is as off the mark as one can get.
August 28, 2018
It's perfectly happy in being a big budgeted action flick... but it doesn't have the goofy swagger of Men in Black, nor the grittiness of End of Watch, and ends up just wallowing without saying much.
August 26, 2018
Even with an interesting premise, the film never fully capitalizes on its potential and we're left with nothing but a boring film.
June 28, 2018
If the movie had simply aimed it a little lower, it wouldn't have missed so many shots.

Bright uses barely developed magical elements to tell a barely developed story about racism and prejudice in America. On both fronts, it fails.

"Bright's problem is that it creates a very interesting social context, but it will only be used to stage an... entertainment movie without true ambition. [Full review in Spanish]

In "Bright" humanity is as ugly and careless as the filmmakers.
January 22, 2018
The concept of Bright is way more interesting than the execution of Bright...there are lines in the movie where I really said, "that was written?"
January 22, 2018
Bright's failur does not lie in its hybrid nature, which is not without complexities, but in its inability to exploit this potential. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 19, 2018
Bright is a film trying too hard, with an execution that leaves something to be desired.
January 9, 2018
There are some great ideas inside of this sea of mess. Entertaining, yet crashes on execution. [Full review in Spanish]
January 6, 2018
An all-round boondoggle of the first order.
January 5, 2018
[Bright] is a mishmash of Smith films you've already seen, just with a whole lot more explosions and gun action.
January 3, 2018
The story is a mash-up. It can brush up against current events, but not enough for anything to stick.
