Even after 31 years, the perception of Asian American culture remained stagnant, even in a fictional world.
Finally, a potential Asian American experience brought to the big screen, a blockbuster that would bring it all home for me.
Instead, I like to look at their background as a unique, maybe unintentional, retelling of the Asian American experience.
The ’90s are long gone, but Asian American representation hasn’t gotten much better.
One day, though, hopefully soon, Asian American kids will be able to see themselves in people and not mutated reptiles.
