Did we miss something on diversity?

Great story WRONG telling of it

LOVE the story and the adventure BUT it’s a movie that treats Dr. Chase as pretty little thing. Sure Cage was the headliner of the movie but its not okay (now or then) in how he deals with her … spoiler alert he gets the girl in the end. Again super fun story and an enjoyable movie just not well written/directed, Also not a good depiction of the few black and brown cast members who have limited roles.
