Bright is one of the biggest and most important Netflix releases to date. Featuring a mega star in Will Smith, an accomplished director in David Ayer, and a reported $90 million dollar budget, the big question facing Bright is whether it can succeed in providing a blockbuster theatrical experience from the comfort of your couch. The short answer to this question is, yes. Bright is an urban action-fantasy-crime film that looks and feels like it fits alongside some of the year’s biggest studio releases. While the film has several flaws and doesn’t come anywhere close to being as good as Netflix’s other big 2017 release, the Oscar-worthy Mudbound, Bright is further proof that the streaming giant is just as capable of providing compelling theatrical experiences as their major studio competitors.
