IndieWire's David Ehrlich, meanwhile, gives Bright the undistinguished title of "the worst movie of 2017", writing: "From the director of Suicide Squad and the writer of Victor Frankenstein comes a fresh slice of hell that somehow represents new lows for them both - a tiresome and painfully derivative ordeal that that often feels like it was made just to put those earlier misfires into perspective".

Yes, that's right: Netflix has ordered a sequel to Bright, and they've already got Will Smith onboard to come back.

Reviews across the board have been mixed to negative, with the film now sporting a 32 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and a 28/100 on Metacritic.

Bright hasn't even hit Netflix's streaming services yet, but the company is ready to lock down the future of the franchise. And they're coming for theater chains.

Here's what critics had to say about Bright.

"At first glance, it seems admirable to tell a parable of sorts about modern day class structure using orcs as a stand-in for the downtrodden and discriminated against".

Where do you folks stand on Bright?

Edgerton usually makes better choices than this so you have to think the script wasn't a total trainwreck at the beginning.

FILMMAKER David Ayer tackled fantasy with his last comic book movie, Suicide Squad. Though he didn't care for Bright, he promised, "I'll be waiting with fresh eyes for whatever comes next".
