Grotesquely disappointing
20 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Everything about this mash-up feels rushed, the heroes themselves are pale shadows of themselves(except Iron fist, he's equally bad in this as he is in his own series), the villains are 2-dimensional uncomplicated stereotypes, writing/cinematography and production value in general seems to have been compromised because of time restraint.

Instead of cherry picking the best parts of all shows the creators of this debacle read the description on the back cover of the DVDs and conceived a poor 80s-esque action flick that they stretched out for 8 episodes.

Why don't they take away anything from their own achievements? Daredevil; The amazing fight scenes, overall dark tones, well-rounded villain. Luke Cage; Atmosphere, Soundtrack, Luke Cage style berzerking. Jessica Jones; Mental Struggle, looming but ever present villain. Iron Fist; *Blank* (They took to much from Iron fist actually.)

When you give a great recipe to a sub-par chef on a time-limit the yield is not gonna be fantastic. Give the reins over to someone with a deeper understanding of your already set-up framework.

For the love of god just turn this bad streak around, no more Iron-fist casting or Defenders writing.
