A racist WHITE lie - A dime a dozen poison garbage
theRealChinese | CA, USA | 02/03/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Wow, what an original script. Let's here:Little Chinese woman immigrated from an oppressive nation and then further oppressed by her own people, family, and culture. She yearns to be something different - perhape to become WHITE.Lo and behold, the WHITE KNIGHT in shining armor is here to the rescue. Frees the entrapped, fragile, and obedient Chinese woman from her oppressor that tells her that "She will always be Chinese."Does it occur to any Chinese person that being Chinese is shameful? It is a default for a Chinese woman, in order to shed her shame for being Chinese that she must remedy this situation by running to the WHITE man?Althought this is laughable garbage, but it is none-the-less powerful poison to the impressionable mind - the Asian youths growing up in America. These kinds of garbage from Hollywood and the like poisons our Asian youths to hate themselves, their parents, their culture, their upbringing.THIS GARBAGE HAS TO END. Steven Dunning is a blatant racist and a deplorable human being for spilling such poison.Let me tell you about the heroes of the immigrant Chinese. The brave and fearless parents that came to a foreign land with no money, no connection, no skill, and no English that brings their next generation to forge a better future. They work their hands to the bone to support their kids through higher education. They endure the hate and racism from their OWN KIDS, poisioned by the Steven Dunnings of America, yet still persevered and worked honorably for the better future of their children.Here is challenge to the racist Steven Dunning: shed your wealth and lead your family to Vietnam and see how long you can survive? Steven Dunning, you are truly a piece of human waste.Steven Dunning is nothing more than a two bit racist pig. I will spit in his face if I see him.What a shame for humanity!"
Negative Five Stars
Projek-A | VT, usa | 02/06/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"If you enjoy films that stereotype an entire race of people, then go ahead and blow your $13.48 on this P.O.S. And if you enjoyed this film, may I suggest other timeless "classics" like: "16-Candles" "Karate Kid II" and "Charlie's Angels 2."Otherwise, hold onto your money and use it for something more meaningful and life-enriching. How about a film that that doesn't portray minorities in a negative light?"
Another White Male to the Rescue Movie...
ItsNeverMe | USA | 02/04/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I give this move ZERO STARS!!! I had to rate it something otherwise I couldn't submit this review!
WTF! Yet another movie emasculating Asian Men. Another White dude coming to the rescue of an Asian Women who's supposedly mistreated by her "own" kind. What? You mean to tell me that there are no kind, caring, compassionate, sympathetic, Asian Men? This White-man to the rescue theme has been done over and over again by White controlled Hollywood that it's sickening! Do yourself a favor...SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!"
Stereotypical white male claptrap disparaging asians
ItsNeverMe | 02/11/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"It doesn't get more racist and stereotypical than this. The director tries to justify the "white knight" portrayal that often disparages asian men as well as asian women. The predominate stereotype is that asians are incapable of doing anything without a white hero. Asian men are emasculated as usual in this American media depiction which was created with patronizing white male fantasies in mind. Please watch films by Wong Kar Wai or early Ang Lee for Chinese movies about real Chinese culture. Avoid nonsense directed by individuals such as Steven Dunning because they are skewed in their racial perception. Asian community action groups have been contacted and we will actively boycott this director and campaign against his sponsors."
