Based on critical and fan reaction, I was expecting a dumpster fire, but - and I realize this is damning with faint praise - "Iron Fist" is honestly not that bad. The action, while far from noteworthy, proves adequate compared to most direct-to-DVD martial arts flicks, and David Wenham is terrific as a wild card villain. The surprise highlight is the ambient, almost Vangelis-like electronic score by Trevor Morris.
All Marvel's Netflix series has the problem of going too far into the character's psyche and self-doubt and this is especially true for Iron Fist where the hero seem to question every single punch and move he does - something that probably also made it a hard watch for fans who wanted a full-blown, fast-paced fantasy martial arts adventure, which this ain't. It has some great female characters though.
Gets better towards the end of season 1, but undoubtedly the worst of the Marvel Netflix series. David Wenham was the best thing about it, but he's out. I'm glad to see it cancelled, the whole show was a series of boring missteps.
