My fav thing about tumblr is the complete lack of country music it makes me feel like this is where I should be

Did you or your parents see Lucy? The words written on the wall are there because it's a storage room of an old grocery store. The gangsters Lucy fights are Korean, not Taiwanese. Nothing about the movie suggests that all of Taiwan or Taipei is dangerous writ large and full of crime. The movie does have problems with race, but I think you may have jumped to some extreme conclusions about its portrayal of Taiwan based solely on the trailer.

OK, look. I’m going to be nice because at least you’re not coming in here with whitefem nonsense like ellerhineart did yesterday, but my patience is running low. You are the third person to come to me defending the movie. 

The point of trailers is to let people make judgments on whether or not they want to see the movie. I’ll agree that most of them may not be accurate, but based on the information I had on the movie, I’m not going to see it because surprise surprise, racist, and while I’m not going to say Taiwan is a paradise, it doesn’t have the issues portrayed in the movie, such as drugs or, guns. You know, based on the trailer.

And if you’ll excuse me, I don’t see why I should see the movie if I don’t like what I see in the previews. I don’t see why I have to explain to some random person why I don’t want to see a movie if it looks like it’ll portray a non-Western country, especially the one my family came from, poorly. I think I even addressed on my blog why questions like these minimize the concerns of Taiwanese and East Asians. But I just went and explained to you, because it’s morning and I’m trying to be nice.

Have a good day.

Not to mention, people saying, “But they’re KOREAN gangsters!!” really does not make it better; it’s still a movie with a focus on a white woman shooting asians. For that matter, why would (South?) Korean gangsters be operating in Taiwan? Given that the reaction to legitimate S.K. businesses trying to enter the market there is overwhelmingly negative, I cannot imagine that illegal business would be all that welcomed, either.

Not to mention that ‘Koreans are crooks and gangsters’ is a really, really unfortunate stereotype in certain other nearby countries that -really- doesn’t need any reinforcement by Hollywood.

Right? Like most Americans can even tell the difference between Taiwanese and Korean anyway. Either way, every Asian in this film only exists to serve as a prop. When they created this trailer, they wanted you to perceive Taiwan and the scenes set there a certain way. They wanted you to cheer that Lucy, a delicate white woman, was killing Asians in dirty, scary Asia. That’s how she proves her badassness, her strength, her “I’m so done with this” face. They have scenes in Paris in this film, too, and none of them made it into the trailer. Wonder why.
