Rafu Shimpo reports Olympus Has Fallen features numerous parts for Asian American actors, but all them happen to be bad guys.
“Where’s the reminder that not all Asian people are to be feared and/or hated? Where are the Asian American Secret Service men who try to fight back?
asks Guy Aoki, co=founder of of the Media Action Network for Asian Americans/ “(Director Antoine) Fuqua couldn’t cast even one?”
Aoki says this would have never happened if the movie were about radical Jews taking over the United States, or if the terrorist group had been from an African country.
