There was a time when you could count the big, blockbuster action films starring women on one hand. In a stunning reflection of how things are changing in Hollywood, now you’d probably need to use two hands—and in fact, we’ve progressed so much that women can now lay claim to an extremely problematic, culturally fetishistic shoot-’em-up of their very own.

Yes, on September 10, Netflix will release Kate, which stars Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’s Mary Elizabeth Winstead as an assassin who is poisoned during her final mission (when else?) and has only a few hours to hunt down her killers before she up and dies (this is one of those special movie poisons that apparently leaves you with no ill effects until it kills you). It looks incredibly cool—Winstead, an actress I adore, seems to have taken to the action genre with relish—or it would, if the trailer for the Japan-set flick wasn’t slathered with the kind of Orientalism-bordering-on-racism that I thought we’d left behind in the early ‘90s, when Japanese businessmen stopped being treated as shorthand for a threat to American dominance in every movie.

From Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, the director of the second Snow White and the Huntsman movie, Kate looks like a frenetic cross between John Wick and Crank, and at least as entertaining as recent Netflix female assassin film Gunpowder Milkshake, but it’s a real warning sign when your film’s baddie is referred to simply as “the Yakuza,” ever the reliable East Asian Boogeyman in movies for Western audiences. Maybe the final result won’t reduce an entire country to a series of tropes, I dunno. Given the director calls it his “love letter to Japan,” things could really go either way.

Here’s everything else coming to the streamer this month, including a new He-Man animated series (Sept. 16)—a different one this time—and additional seasons of streaming favorites like Love on the Spectrum, Nailed It!, and reality sensation, The Circle.
