Iron Fist on Netflix review: Avoid it


Iron Fist on Netflix review

There are multiple production companies on this series by Netflix and it shows. More money spent on set rental and designer clothes than editing. Lot's of splash and hard cuts to make up for Finn Jones lack of martial skill. Finn is a very good actor but the episode and a half of him stuck in a psych ward will leave you sleepy.

Jessica Henwick has some good scenes but you can see her acting. It's hard to watch.
Daredevil should have been their marker. This doesn't come close. Danny Rand's character is all over the board. He's a peaceful David Caradine type living in the park, then an angry rich boy yelling in a restaurant, not Iron Fist the defender of kunlun. Doesn't make sense nor does it carry the plot.

The fight in the Dojo will make most viewers cringe

The villains are weak and feckless, the foreshadowing is vapid and predictable.
I was really looking forward to this as a call back to my youth with the build up to Iron Fist, Power-man team up.

Sorry man, I just cannot suspend my disbelief on this one long enough to ignore the shortcomings.
