A film's plot comes from its premise, and this premise is backwards and repugnant.
24 January 2019 | by henjkSee all my reviews

The premise of the movie is alarmingly played-out; the whole thing is just a piece of unironically regressive, anti-Asian, "Yellow Peril" propaganda. The whole thing, from the red dress, to the posing of the actors, to the premise of a wicked Asian male being defeated by a white male hero over whom the helpless Asian female victim gets all touchy-touchy in the manner of a cheap romance novel's cover is just gross. Mr. Chai has some soul-searching to do. Could one even imagine a movie where a white woman leaves an abusive white boyfriend and subsequently starts feeling all over a suited black man? Jordan Peele isn't filming spiritual successors to "Birth of a Nation." Neither is Spike Lee. David Chai has some soul-searching to do.
