Another great show from netflix and marvel! the critics have rated it low because it stuck with the comics. I feel like these days people have forgotten the meaning of whitewashing. You can't whitewash a white character; that's ridiculous. The show is extremely diverse and very well made. It has strong female and strong non white characters. I don't understand the fuss. If you go to Rotten Tomatoes, you will see 19% by critics and 88% by audience; that definitely says something. Ignore the critics, and watch this great show.


The professional critics seem to be delusional, or more realistically, more concerned with political messaging rather than actually examining the show with honesty. Iron fist, while not as good as Daredevil or Jessica Jones, is certainly far, FAR, from being as bad as 17% RT gave it. The execution is slugish at times, as is some of the writing, but the show is still quite enjoyable and a fun binging experience.


Watching episode #2 now. First impression: if the Marvel movies are like ivory, this show is like cardboard. The lead actor Finn Jones is great, he's making the show. But so far the other actors just aren't. Sorry. Jessica Stroup is a pretty face that knows her lines, but doesn't demonstrate even the tiniest bit of character depth. It's like she comes to the studio, plays her part, and leaves without giving it another thought. Tom Pelphrey, well I know he's a good actor, he was great in Banshee. But over here, in the first two episodes he's such a superficial character, it doesn't do him justice so I hope that will change as we get further along. Because he needs a character with a proper backstory so he can show his talent. Like the guy he played in Banshee: it wasn’t even a main character really, but even so, he left me wanting and wondering. It takes talent to be able to pull that off. He’s got it. Anyway. Iron Fist. The storyline so far is lame. I won't give spoilers, except for maybe one word: [spoiler]Arrow[/spoiler]. Generally, it gets really cheesy and full of cliches we’ve all seen a thousand times in various movies and series already. [spoiler]Psych ward[/spoiler], really? The lines and story details are lame. Who in the world would not [spoiler]recognize a childhood friend 15 years later[/spoiler]?! Only in Netflix land do these things happen. And you can almost predict what the characters are going to say next, like all the time. I’m doing my best to not give you any real spoilers here, but ffs, no sensei in the world would [spoiler]call themselves a master[/spoiler] and then [spoiler]go out to teach their pupils martial arts by letting them try to mug the sensei[/spoiler]. And a real sensei would never [spoiler]talk down on their students[/spoiler]. What were the writers thinking?!! Choreography... It’s like they didn’t even try to make an effort. Not impressed at all. It's easy to imagine where the jump ropes were used. Camera work.. let’s just say they do use nice color filters. That’s not a compliment. The staff knows what they’re doing, but here it shows in a bad way, like how bored they are after making the umpth Netflix tv show. And finally the set like most of the walls are made out of cardboard. Sounds like it too. Audio quality (from boom mics) is horrible. All in all.. well like I said, I’m only two episodes in. So it might get better. But that being said, it does have a really cheap taste to it. This is not the Marvel I’m used to. It has all the elements except for the most important one: soul. It lacks a soul. So here’s to hoping it’ll get better. Would I recommend watching it? Yes. You might be less critical than I am. If so: great. Hope you enjoy every second of it. After I finish writing this, I’ll do my best to enjoy it too. But I just had to get this off my chest first, and if you agree with my review, it’s time for more of us to start voicing this stuff to the degree that the studios will listen. Because we want quality, but what we get is cardboard box degraded entertainment. It’s not worth ploughing through if this is how it stays, so the rest of the story better be damn good, it’s a Marvel’s show for heaven's sake, not DC Comics! If things stay like this though, I predict that I’m not staying a Netflix subscriber for much longer. Because if there’s any general indication to quality running down hill with them, this show proves how sloppy they have become. Come on, tv show makers, at least try to make an effort, please!


-- DISCLAIMER: THIS BELOW IS ENTIRELY MY PERSONAL OPINION, YOU MIGHT NOT AGREE WITH IT -- - This comes from a Marvel die-hard fan that read comics since he was able to read at all. I follow most current comics Marvel is releasing, I obviously have read and reread all the most famous one and I am watching the entire MCU in the exact timeline events ordered. All these opinions you will read weren't taken lightly and without thought. - ------------- - STARTING THOUGHT: When you're used to the level of the MCU, such as like: Daredevil, Jessica Jones and even Luke Cage, you go in with such high expectations for the next one that it's really easy for them to make simple mistakes. But here I won't be talking about simple mistakes, I'll talk about HUGE mistakes. ------------- - IDEA OF THE SERIES: Danny Rand is the Iron Fist, a child survivor of a plane crash that killed his whole family, gets adopted by mystical monks on the Himalayas that train him in every combat style, armed and unarmed and make him "The Living Weapon" or "The Iron Fist", bonded to a lifetime duty to protect the monastery. You might say: "There's nothing wrong with that", and I fully agree. Iron Fist's background, and development, and history has been one of my favourites to read in Marvel Comics. ------------- - SHOW REVIEW: In this TV show, we get an underpowered, discredited and frankly... with not that much screen time Iron Fist. I started the show, AT LEAST, expecting sick fighting scenes, I mean, these are people trained to become warriors, skilled in every combat art. And what do we get? SLOW FIGHTS. actors CLEARLY WAITING on set for the counterpart attack to resume the fight, almost EVERY fighting scene had terrible choreography. There was nothing put into it other than a few sick jumps and two punches done right using a body double. Really, if you pay attention and put aside the hype of seeing Iron Fist fight, these scenes are all terrible. This story is filled with mental diseases from everyone. Danny seems like a bad version of Batman with rage controlling issues. As I said before he's WAY UNDERPOWERED. He can only light up one fist, break one gun, take down one wall, or one door at a time and then going into the LONGEST cooldown humanity has ever seen. In the comics he punched a helicarrier so hard he made it "land". Ward's character is a mess of... paranoia and frustration, but there was really nothing put into him other than daddy issues, there was no depth to the character at all other than a constant jokerish attitude, making jokes about everything that made him feel uncomfortable, and the stupid ass "drug addict" attitude, not to mention the [spoiler] UNEXPLICABLE hallucinations he's getting for some reason that didn't get explained, and... the murdering rampage, obvious as a blue sky. [/spoiler] Joy's is plain as cardboard as well, same daddy issues Ward's got. The PERPETUAL struggle between dark and light inside of her. Doing bad stuff with her company, and crying and complaining for two straight episodes afterwards. [spoiler] Then, when she gets a possibility to make everything right, to change life, build something she likes, nah, she banters that she feels useless, that she wants to keep the company because it's something she made. After 9 episodes of seeing her cry and conflicted for working that very same job. [/spoiler] Claire and [spoiler] Gao [/spoiler] took the entire first season on their backs and kept it there, if it wasn't for them I wouldn't have kept watching. [spoiler] Gao's [/spoiler] malicious as fuck and the actress like in the other MCU series did a marvelous job. [spoiler] Claire had better fighting scenes in those 10 seconds she did than Colleen and Danny put together for 12 episodes. [/spoiler] Colleen is a mystery to me. Looks like she was placed there to be the girlfriend, that's it. I didn't like the Karate Kid sensei attitude she had, I didn't like her [spoiler] inexplicable idea to go fighting in the cage [/spoiler] after literally one episode before she was bantering one of her students not to. Also... why the hell doesn't she use her katana in 8 episodes? Like... WHAT?! Bushido my ass Colleen. I'm not even going to talk about the other characters, because they were utterly useless, the had no impact at all in the entire season and they shouldn't be mentioned for that very same reason. They were there to say a few words and go out. Yes, I'm also talking about Ward's and Joy's father. The story is very predictable, there's no cliffhanger, no unexpected twist, it's all out there waiting for you to think one second and reach to the same conclusion you will later see. At episode 8 it got so boring I've fallen asleep for a while. Also, some scenes look like they were taken out of the Power Rangers. Sometimes the audio was clearly changed in different recording studios, you can clearly hear the actor's voice changing in echoes and quality. Sometimes it's simply plain and with no effect that should emulate the room they are in, in the episode. Sometimes new b level actors pop up with stupid lines put there just to extend the episode's length, with plain "I'm on camera" looks on their faces. I'm just... blown away. ------------- - ACTORS REVIEW: All MAIN actors aren't that bad really, this was just poor writing, poor character placement and not a lot to work with. There's no synergy, no connection at all between then, this was just terrible. Finn Jones doesn't really get the character to a point where he could just simply take the entire series on his back, just like it happened with Luke Cage. He's got the looks and the chest tattoo, but nothing more. Tom Pelphrey is pretty good I gotta admit, even with his stupid ass character, his acting skills where very emphatic, I felt his fear, his frustration, his rage. And I gotta admit it made me uncomfortable. Jessica Stroup is a beautiful face that couldn't do more than the character they gave her. Jessica Henwick is a mystery to me. Thank you Rosario Dawson and [spoiler] Wai Ching Ho [/spoiler] for saving this entire horrible first season. ------------- - FINAL THOUGHTS: So, all points concluded I gotta vote this series no more than 6. This was WAY below the level the other series put up front. Even whilst Luke Cage lowered that level a lot, this still wasn't as near to it. All considered this seems way more of a... "transitional series" to what will become either a very budget powered Iron Fist or a fantastic Defenders series. We will see.


Opposite of The CW's superhero shows, Netflix and Marvels produce amazing series based on comic books and provide us wonderful excitement. The show is super entertaining. These critics don't know what they are talking about. This show is made for the fans and only the real ones appreciate this more than anybody else. They need to loosen up and read comic books more, maybe we wouldn't have so much hate in the world.


Second season was actually good and the finale left me wanting a season 3. I don't understand why netflix cancelled the show after this season, maybe a weaker season 1 is the reason not enough people gave this one a chance. It definitely had the potential to have a great season 3 and they could have it been the last one.


I am fan of the show, they got the spirit of the story and it is hard to pull of the Iron Fist right but Netflix is doing a great job with Marvel, Daredevil was a hit and I really liked Luke Cage, Jessica Jones was a bit on the darker side but still good. The Iron Fist is a bit on the complicated side because they are still defining who the Iron Fist is, and season 2 will be a bit more established and they can really jump into it. And not to forget they already set it up for The Defenders so all leading characters from the four Netflix/Marvel Shows will be in one which I hope will be an action packed epic show, with a worthy adversary to boot. I hope Netflix keeps up with the great original work they are doing and we want more from Marvel.


I'm not angry that this show was a disaster, I'm just disappointed. No surprise though seeing as "Iron Fist" is not really a compelling(?) character for Marvel. If you want a good(?) better (?) show, go watch arrow. It follows pretty much the exact same plot. I'll just leave this here. The fight scenes are just horrific.


I just finished the whole series and apart from ep 9 and 10 it was amazing! I really liked the story and the fighting, probably one of my fav marvel stories so far. I'm not into the comics so i have got no clue if they stayed true to the story or not. But for a tv show it was awesome


The second season is an improvement from the first. Watched the finale without knowing it's the finale and I was shocked to find myself wishing there were 13 episodes like all the other Marvel shows. Funny it gets cancelled just when I started to enjoy it. Meh. Can't say I'm too mad, though. But good season. I liked it a lot.
