    Default Iron Fist Reviews

    Well, Iron Fist may be the first clunker in the bunch, but personally I'll wait until I see it myself to make a decision.

    Disapointing. I thought Luke Cage was a step down from DD and JJ but was still pretty good. This makes me a bit more apprehensive for Iron Fist
    DC, hurry up and make your own version of Marvel Unlimited!

    The reviews feel like they're pandering to the SJW demographic who've been shitting on this show since Marvel made the controversial decision to cast a white dude ... as a white dude.

    I'm reserving judgement until I see the show but I do have concerns, mostly recycling The Hand, no costume, running away from the mysticism and overall giving next to no new concepts for Iron Fist to work with.

    To an extent yes.

    But when I see complaints of boring, bad action fights, afraid of "going there" with Kun Lun... that is what makes me sad.

    Tumblr outrage won't stop people from watching on netflix. Being boring and shitty will.

    Well this isnt a good sign.... so we have Colter playing a great Cage but we get someone as ironfist who is completely unbelievable in his fight scene apparently. This bromance might be one sided. Have to wait and see it for myself though

    but season 2 of DD was bad and JJ season was slightly too long derailing it's momentum. So this is hardly the first clunker. (I haven't watched LC yet.)

    Screw all that. I want viscous internal auditor battles and epic accrual-based accounting adventures!

    Critically and viewing numbers wise, S2 DD and JJ were a resounding success.

    Review said there is 0 K'un L'un in the first 6 episodes, which is really sad.

    The problem with the fights are that some reviews say they're too choreographed, others say they're not kung fu or choreographed enough. One was complaining the fight scenes didn't involve crouching tiger level wire work. So which do we believe here?

    Both shows had pacing issues, Jones was great until the 'playing house' arc ends then it goes downhill super fast, DD S2 was like they slapped together two seasons worth of content, it just didn't work. Season 2 should have been about the Punisher. They should have given the Elektra and Hand stuff to the Iron Fist show, since he is a millionaire-ess, she'd be a much more suitable foil to billionaire Danny Rand while also being a ninja foil to his kung fu.

    Most people dont think DD s2 was bad. Th problem was the stuff with the hand never lived up to the great stuff John Benrthal did as the Punisher early on. And Jessica Jones did great with critics, though i thought it had the problem of the main character being the least interesting. She was fine but you kept praying for Cage or Killgrave to show up

    Dont agree with Iron fist at all Cage was good. Goes downhill a little when a villians swapped out.for another. Dont wanna spoil it.

    I personally thought Luke Cage was a clunker... I couldn't even finish the season. Considering that I don't like the casting choice for Danny... I'm not surprised.

    I want fighting on a Hong Kong 90's movie level. I will turn my back on it if they try to "walking dead" this thing. Danny Rand's story is trash. Only the fighting matters.
