Not a bad little show...
Verified purchase
Not wanting to subscribe to Netflix for various reasons, this series did pique my curiosity. Danny Rand/Iron First has always been a second-tier player in the Marvel pantheon of heroes. I am old enough to remember his debut in the mid-70's when Kung Fu movies were all the rage, but looking back he may have (sadly) been a knee-jerk reaction to the slightly more popular (and deifinitely Asian) Shang-Chi, Master of Kung-Fu. It's also possible the original comic creators went with the whole white rich kid survives plane crash in the Himalayas, is rescued by mystical martial artist monks who groom him and train him to become a living weapon (the "Iron Fist" of the title), and then disappear into another dimension (read: alternate universe - this is Marvel Comics y'know...). In fact, I want to say Iron Fist made his debut in a Marvel Team-Up with Spider-Man. Of course, I no longer have that issue, but I vaguely remember him being mistaken for a bad guy by Spidey and....NOT SPEAKING A WORD. At first you couldn't tell where he was from (other than the colorist making him Caucasian), and I don't think he spoke until the end of the story. His basic look (and I apologize for not knowing the proper terminology) was a dark green tight-fitting body suit that stopped just below his knees and elbows; it was also open over the chest showing a black tattoo of a dragon and I want to say it had yellow labels and collar turned up. He then complemented the look with a yellow doo-rag with "Spidey-like" eyes that came down over his nose, and was tied in a "ponytail" in the back, a yellow sash/belt around his waist, and dainty little yellow slippers over bare feet that barely covered his toes and heels. Despite the contrived look, he was a bit of a bad-a** and kicked criminals' butts all over the comic panels. Like Danny eventually is able to do in the TV show, he could concentrate his energies into his fists which glowed and crackled and left contrails in their wake. He later joined up with Luke Cage (another minor Marvel deity) to form Heroes for Hire. Apparently when he made the debut, he was shaven bald under the bandana, but as the stories progressed, the artists began drawing in blond hair (as it grew back). By the time he "unmasked" he had a full head of blond hair (though nowhere near as curly as Finn Jones' coif in the show). And eventually he stopped wearing the bandana/doo-rag altogether.

Unfortunately I've only gotten through 3 (of 13) episodes. My Region 1/A Blu-Ray player decodes the "region-free" discs quite nicely and the subtitles are fairly standard, and not that obstrusive if your're like me, and either have slight hearing issues or watch the show later at night when the rest of the household sleeps.

A few corrections (in my opinion). Finn Jones is not that bad of an actor. It's a superhero show. While it's nice to show some emotional depth, this isn't high art cinema. One disadvantage I noticed is he occasionally has a hard time maintaining an American accent (being Welsh and all that). He also appears to be relatively young compared to other "superhero" actors, and there is the slight possibility that he's downplaying the character a bit to "grow" into the role as the series progresses. I also have to give him props for walking around the sidewalks of NYC (where the show was filmed) in bare feet, and they are quite filthy looking when he shows up his soles. As somone else snarked here, "dude doesn't get shoes till the 5th episode" - that's not true, he's wearing sneakers by Episode 3, but the character is a master of martial arts - and in most dojos I've ever seen, the students. instructors or senseis do not wear shoes (perhaps tabi socks at times but generally go barefoot).

And as for the Meachums. Well, again, this is comic book territory so a little artistic license must be granted for their outrageousness (to make the audience not identify or root for them I'd say) and stubbornness to acknowledge Danny's birthright/identity. Sometimes you have to twirl the mustaches along with the snazzy repartee.

Let's just say I've been pleasantly surprised with the show so far. I may need to revise my opinion as the series moves forward but for now, I've seen worse. (Titans, anyone? Doom Patrol???)

Bad writing and casting needless gender swaping
I did like the first two episodes, but it went off the rails pretty quick and I haven't gotten past 6 episodes. Tried to watch season 2 but it had the same problems.
None of the leads have any martial training. Danny hits thugs multiple times before they go down. Colleen is a real annoying b!tch. Her main contribution is to say "wait!,what?! in any episode she is in, I just fast forward through her meaningless cage fights and girl chats. The once opulent epitome of the ironside laywer, Hogarth is now a lesbian, one of the many women Danny crawls to for help. Still waiting for him to learn how to use a shaver, maybe some lady can teach him.

I know that women make up at least 50% of tv watchers, but that's no reason to swap out 50% of the male characters which long time readers have grown to know and care about. Especially when the original comic was one of the first superhero books to feature a diverse cast to begin with. Inspired by Eastwood's "play Misty for me" I wanted to see him fall in love with Misty, not settle for Coleen just because he is stuck with her.

Also the pace is slowwww, unlike daredevil where every episode feels like its 15 minutes long, Fist stalls out several times per episode with character studies which go nowhere.

Waiting for the new Netflix series Moby Dick that starts with... Call me Isabel, maybe she can talk the Captain down from his obsession, turning a lengthy book into a half hour after school special.

Great Character Work, Interesting Themes, & Epic Music
While not as technically well-made as Daredevil, Iron Fist is my favourite of the Marvel Netflix series and I highly recommend it to any Marvel fan. The writers and actors did a great job of adding depth to an otherwise generic comic book character (I love the source material too but the character never had much going on) and all of the supporting characters get genuine impactful story arcs over the course of the season. There's also some surprising twists with a few of the characters too which elevated the series and Claire Temple gets more to do here than in any of the other series.
The actual fighting in the early episode may leave a lot to be desired but the back end offers some truly memorable sequences with the 3-way battle between Danny, Colleen, and Davos against a group of thugs being a standout.
What really impressed me is the series' exploration of the abuse of parental figures, with all of the main characters dealing with some sort of influence from a mother or father figure, as well as issues like mental illness, anxiety, and addiction.
Oh, and the music is AMAZING. Honestly my favourite TV soundtrack since LOST.
Iron Fist is the only Marvel series I've rewatched immediately after finishing it and I think I've watched it 5 times now. It just really clicked with me.

Another enjoyable Marvel Netflix show.
Of all the characters in the Marvel Universe who congregate in New York, and as a lifelong comic fan, Iron Fist is the character I probably had the least, previous experience with. Other than the broad strokes, I was unfamiliar with the character and his background, other than being the partner, and subtle opposite to Luke Cage, his comic book partner.
So I guess I started out not expecting too much but knowing it would likely be good, as all the shows in this shared universe are.
It has a great cast, the actor who played Ward Meachum really stood out to me and I will look to see what other things he's been in as well after this. There were many surprises and plot twists, great action and martial arts, and humor as well. I really enjoyed this, and look forward to season 2.

Writer Can't Follow their Own Rules of Reality
What bothers me about this, is the total lack of realism. I define realism a little bit different then others when watching a fantasy or science fiction show. When I say realism, I mean that whatever the writers, producers, directors, etc who make the show state that reality is, that they follow their OWN rules of reality. This show doesn't even follow its own rules of reality, and that is the part that is extremely disappointing about it. To me there is nothing more disappointing then when the writers make all the rules, and they still can't follow the rules that they wrote themselves on how reality is suppose to work in a given book, television show or movie.

For example, in the very last episode of the season, and I won't spoil anything by saying the name of the person that he is attacking. But the Iron Fist is trying to kill someone on the top of a roof of a building, who is using a gun. He runs into the person and kicks him to the ground. He had the person at his mercy, and this was the person who he was trying to kill. So he could of and if the show followed its own rules of reality, he should of kept on pounding on the person until he was unable to fight back. Instead he runs away from someone he knocked to the ground. Yeah that made a lot of sense.

Next, there is a saying that a zebra can not change it stripes. Some shows, like this one, the writers will to the point of making it not even fit reality, add conflict that makes zero sense whatsoever. Where characters who would NEVER ever behave a certain way, they change their behavior, just to add silly conflict that makes no sense whatsoever. I like shows that actually make some sense in terms of my idea of reality. The writers write all the rules, so they should follow their own rules. Unless a person is brain washed, or something similar to cause them to behave against their personality, it makes no sense, and it is totally unenjoyable when it makes no sense whatsoever and fits nothing resembling realistic.

Starts out ok, then gets dumb and dumber - the center is missing
Two admissions: 1. I am bad at names and did not bother to find out the names of the actors. Apologies. 2. I started watching this on Netflix, and, about halfway through the season, I began to fast forward. I looked at the beginning of the first episode of the second season, but I decided it was just a waste of time.
Ok. Where to start? I like Luke Cage and Jessica Jones - we're not talking about Friday Night Lights or Mr. Robot or The Wire - but they're fun. So I thought I'd try Iron Fist. It's a kind of a mixture of Lost Horizon and The Arrow. The Rand family - parents and son Danny - fly over the Himalayas to get from NYC to China. Their plane crashes, and only little Danny (about 8 or 9) survives. He is found by the monks of Kun-Lun - a venue from another dimension that intersects with ours from time to time. For the next decade or two, Danny is trained (they beat him a lot) in fighting - martial arts. Finally, through sheer determination, he wins (by competition) the role of the Iron Fist - when he focuses his "chi", his right hand lights up and he can punch through anything. His duty is to defend Kun-Lun from "the Hand", an evil organization dedicated to running large corporations and selling super-heroin. What this has to do with Kun-Lun is not explained, any more than is its purpose. Having become, at last, the Iron Fist, Danny, of course, returns to NYC. No one recognizes him - no one thinks of DNA. He makes friends with the lovely woman who runs a dojo. His family corporation - Rand Co. - a multi-billion operation, is being run by the two children of his late father's dead (not really) children Ward and Joy, who used to be his best friends. Their father turns out to be alive, living in the Rand Tower Penthouse (no one knows this) following the orders of The Hand who have (has?) brought him back to life. His son, Ward, is the only person who knows this and follows his father's orders no matter what they may be - at one point he has to dismember a guy his father killed and sink the body parts in a swamp. The middle floors of the Rand Tower are run by and occupied by The Hand under the rule of the centuries-old Madame Gao in as stereotyped a role as you are likely to see. (Still, she's kind of fun.) No one seems to notice that whole parts of Rand Tower are missing. Danny is finally given his due due to the brilliance of a very well played lesbian lawyer. He owns 51% of the shares so what he says goes. He closes a factory that seems to be giving people cancer. The Rand Board of Directors is outraged and fires Ward and Joy (and presumably Danny), though how they have the right to do so makes little sense. Ward goes through addiction to pills and then some of the heroin that The Hand is pushing. The actor gives a good performance. Anyway, every episode has a plethora of martial arts fights, many of them so much in the dark that it is impossible to tell what exactly is happening. Bunches of guys with automatic weapons are taken down in seconds without a shot being fired. (The Hand must have the most incompetent thugs in history.) Ward finally stabs his father to death and dumps him in the swamp, but weeks later the father crawls back out, apparently brought back to life one more again to serve The Hand. There are betrayals and re-betrayals. Danny and the sensei (who have become lovers) follow Madame Gao to China and then decide to go back to Kun-Lun. After they climb the Himalayas, they find some dead Hand thugs and Kun-Lun has disappeared! Danny says, "It's all my fault." Here we have the crux of the program's problem; Danny is too much of an indecisive doofus to be the Iron Hand or the Iron anything. He is just annoying. The second season opens with Joy (who was one of the few positive characters) plotting Danny's death. I bailed. I always want to find out what happens next in anything I start, but I just didn't care any more. Even though there is an excess of plotline, nothing happens next - things just more or less stay the same.

Intended for teenagers or younger.
Marvel continues making money by doing the Batman plot of letting the bad guys survive over and over and over. And the good guys never wise up and notice this pattern repeating itself. Over and over and over.
I watched the first hour long pilot and it doesn't even conclude the episode. It is just 'to be continued', to be continued, to be continued. Anyone else notice the pattern.
It is a fun good guy fighter, albeit dense in the head and can't learn even though the same pattern keeps happening. Young kids will like it, I guess. But I've watched too many Marvel and similar series and movies. I'm done with them.
