While it may not *be* Shadowrun, it's pretty damn close. I am really looking forward to this and hope it response will be strong enough to warrant future productions.

If this does well you guys might want to make just a short live action shadowrun Film :D

Unfortunately, in this medium, I am a consumer, not a creator ;D. There are some fantastic short coming out these days...really like some of the stuff Neill Blomkamp and Oats Studios are doing.

It is pretty close, but regardless of that I'm probably going to watch it because I'm a fan the genre.

I'm a little vexed at the idea of Bright.  I feel the franchise is getting watered down by Shadowrun imitators.  I don't know what's worse.  That it'll be so bad it makes the franchise passť.  Or that it might be so awesome it outshines it.  (Though that would be entertaining)  I'd love for there to be a real and good Shadowrun movie.  Even if it's only a fan made movie on YouTube.

lets see...

Fantasy races set in a modern setting.
Magic. (At least magic wands..  Although that scene with Will Smith shooting with everything else in slow mo gave me a Physical Adept vibe..)

They throw in some cybernetics, and Inter-global Corporations, and I smell an infringement lawsuit...


On a Brighter side, it does look interesting! 
Where am I going? And why am I in a hand basket ???

The more urban fantasy, the better (caveat: GOOD urban fantasy)  ;D
