Trivia

The character of Iron Fist was introduced in 1974 in Marvel Premiere #15 by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane. This was around the same time the Kung Fu movie genre was rising due to the popularity of Bruce Lee (who passed away a year earlier). Iron Fist's philosophy parallels Lee's in that one must focus his/her mind (Lee famously said, "Empty your mind and be like water.") in order to control your body and power. An example of this is Bruce Lee's famous "One-Inch Punch" where he could generate explosive power from a punch traveling a short distance. Iron Fist performs a similar feat when he harnesses his Chi to also generate explosive power to get through tough obstacles. See more »

Goofs

Rand commits numerous state level as well as federal offenses, including battery, breaking & entering, theft,kidnapping and passport fraud. Yet by the last episode, he is stated to "only" be facing assault charges against the DEA agents who came to raid Colleen Wing's studio. Even being a billionaire, it's a virtual certainty that his crimes wouldn't have been "forgotten" by the authorities, much less "forgiven." See more »

Quotes

Danny Rand: I've been doing this for 15 years.
Claire Temple: But not against the Hand.
Danny Rand: I know. You're right. The Hand was a myth drummed into me. I've never met them face-to-face.
Claire Temple: So, you're saying I have more experience fighting the Hand than you do?
Danny Rand: [scoffs] Well, if you wanna get technical about it...

Falls short
18 March 2017 | by mmonetaSee all my reviews

Iron Fist falls short of previous Netflix Marvel productions.

The writing was sometimes cringe-worthy and while some blame the actors, there's only so much that can be done with a poor script.

The direction was also lacking, with oddly constructed scenes and action. It felt like the actors had little feedback on their performances, which led to the repetitive silliness.

The fight choreography... well, I'm not entirely sure there was any. Unlike Daredevil (for example), where there was a genuine sense of reality in the fight scenes, in Iron Fist it felt like the scenes in Arrow. Unlimited energy, unrealistic combat, no real damage.

That said, it's not actually horrible, and makes for a good weekend binge-watch. Just imagine you're watching a 13-hour Saturday Kung-Fu movie marathon, and set your expectations appropriately.
