Trivia

Series showrunner Scott Buck admitted that he was "rather reluctant" to join the series and that what first began to warm him up to the idea of working on the project was seeing just how great and successful Daredevil (2015) ended up being. Basically, he wanted to make sure it was not just a comic book show and that there could be a wealth of character development. 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

Harold Meachum: I have no idea what an "iron fist" is. Sounds like a sex toy.

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.
