Throughout the series, Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) says, "Sweet Christmas," which is Luke Cage's catchphrase 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 »
I've been doing this for 15 years.
But not against the Hand.
I know. You're right. The Hand was a myth drummed into me. I've never met them face-to-face.
So, you're saying I have more experience fighting the Hand than you do?
Well, if you wanna get technical about it...

This series reminds me of Marco Polo. B grade acting at best. However,this series does not contain the amazing and pleasant cinematography of Marco Polo. The characters are not interesting and not worth investing in. The character development is non existent. For example, Ward Meechum is developed as Danny's meaner older brother that teases him when he was a child. So we as the audience are exposed to one scene for about 5 seconds of Danny's past and that is supposed to make him a meaningful character?
These actors and actresses feel like they have been selected at random from a crowds of people with no acting experience. The lead, Finn Jones, pulls of some good B grade acting and hes gives the most solid performance.
Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing is simply a terrible actress. Her lines are delivered sharply and whenever she is on screen it is impossible to become immersed in the story. She does not convey emotion at all.As an actress D rating.
Joy and Ward Meechum are both very dry and uninteresting. Their dialogue always delivers boredom and a sense of who cares in the viewer. Both of these characters receive a C rating for acting grade.
As to the plot of the story the first four episodes are not only acted poorly but the plot does not advance until the fifth episode. Episodes one through four focus on Danny and his rejection by his own company when he comes home. This boring and uninteresting story point is explained in four episodes!
Although I do not want to compare this series to Daredevil ultimately it is inevitable. Daredevil is a tightly run story with incredible acting by some relatively unknown actors and actresses. Daredevil 9.5, iron fist 6.
If your looking to waste your time with poor acting and poorly executed plot lines look no further this is the show for you.
OMG do not get me started on the fighting whats supposed to be epic looks like a Californian surfer dancing, This shows is so horrendously cheesy and horribly acted that it is hilarious.
