So I saw the trailer for Lucy and it seems like a good thing - action movie with a female lead, yay! but then i watched it again and it started to become pretty obvious that it's kind of a 1 step forward 2 steps back situation. i.e step forward: female lead, two steps back: all POC bad guys in an evil asian foreign place

this girl did a good job explaining this:

she also makes a good point that there are very few women in the trailer (which i know it's necessarily representative of the whole movie, but they tend to be) besides ScarJo. There could be bad guy women too you know?

anyways, i wanted to get your thoughts on this oh wise GT
