It should go without saying: if you could replace Taiwan with an alien planet and every single Asian character in your movie (barring one English-speaking, European-accented surgeon) with those mooks from The Fifth Element, and the only problem you’d have is establishing that interstellar travel exists in your setting, you have done a poor job of representing a racial group on the one hand, and a poor job of crafting interesting antagonists on the other.

The fact that most guys’ first response to a woman wanting equality is “SO CAN I HIT U NOW” is sort of terrifying
Like that’s the first thing you’re concerned about? I just want equal pay and you want to punch me in the face? Cool cool
