Very weak
19 August 2017 | by tomobedlamSee all my reviews

20 minutes of plot stretched out to 8hrs.

It succeeds in taking Iron fist, one of my favourite Marvel characters and cementing him as the most 2 dimensional and irritating characters ever. Can we just remove him please? It didn't redeem him from the cardboard cliché that he was in his own show.

The fight scenes were repetitive and dull. It's been 18 years since the matrix, 35 since Enter the dragon. Why is the fighting so boring?

Best thing about it was the punisher trailer at the end. Poor show.
