Danny Rand returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting his world around him with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist
In Season 1, Episode 9, as Danny is walking away from a conversation with Joy, you can clearly hear a man shouting, "Hey! I'm wakin' here!" This line was famously ad-libbed by Dustin Hoffman in Midnight Cowboy (1969), as he was nearly hit by a car passing during filming. See more »
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 »
It's not good....it could have been, but it's not.
The lead....let me just start with that.
He was the wrong person. It's that simple. Finn Jones was apparently schooled in the art of soap opera melodrama, and badly executed over-acting. Sadly, the cringes were frequent, and lasting. His romantic interest, is OK...just OK.
The other actors in the show were all pretty much spot on, aside from the awkwardly uncomfortable moments with David Wenham's character, Harold. He does do the budding villain well, but at times I felt the uncomfortable feeling that he was a creepy, unstable foster uncle.
As for the show itself, the first season is 13 very long episodes. At least they seemed really long. It could have been a 4 part mini series of one hour shows. They dragged this show out to 13 episodes with so much nonsense, melodrama, whining, moaning, and cliché bad decisions, that it took everything I had inside me, to choke down the whole season.
I am SO disappointed.
The drama....oh my god, the drama. Every scene that was intended to be some meaningful moment...and there was a lot...was like a horse that has been shot in the barn, left overnight to rot, then is drawn out, and beaten over and over and over. And once the corpse has decayed, it is re-hydrated, and beaten some more.
Dear TV show makers...PLEASE, for the love of GOD, stop having the characters make every single wrong decision possible. We are sick of it. And lose the drama...this is not AMC's The Iron Fist.
This was badly done, and I am sure Marvel is not happy. If they let this out, knowing what it really was....then they have only themselves to blame.
One more thing...the fake/paid reviewers on here are getting out of hand.
