(Non Spoiler) Review of Netflix’s Iron Fist…

After a weekend of binge watching Iron Fist it is finally time to break down the show… Iron Fist has had a very hard time when it came to the critics. The show was bashed pretty hard about being boring, the lead being uninteresting, and the lack of action sequences. I will be tackling my thoughts without giving any spoilers, but I will be giving a full spoiler review later next week. 

As I mentioned in my first half review, the show had a fairly slow start compared to the other Netflix Marvel shows. Daredevil and Luke Cage. both had a very action filled series from start to finish. Wether the action came from the lead characters or if the action came from the criminals in the shows. Iron Fist on the other hand had a very low amount of action. The show was more based around Danny (Iron Fist) finding out what happened to his family and company. 

If you’re going to watch Iron fist… You need to go into this show to learn more about Iron Fist/Danny as a character. Do not go into the series looking for crazy action sequences. I’m sure that will come later on in later seasons, but for now it’s to purely learn why Danny is the Iron Fist. I still am surprised on the very low rating that season 1 received being 18%. The show has a good way to make you feel for the characters, and you really do understand their relationships with one another. Overall I did enjoy the show. I would give it a 6/10. Good enough to watch if you’re interested in the marvel universe. Unlike Daredevil and Luke Cage… I probably wouldn’t rewatch the show, like I have already for Daredevil, but it was a good watch!

I will be giving a spoiler review coming up next week. I will cover everything possible about the show. Hopefully the non Spoiler review will help you decide wether or not to view the first season of Iron Fist! If you have seen the show let us know what you thought @TheNerdChambers on Twitter! 

Iron Fist Season 1 Rating: 6/10

First Impressions of Netflix’s Iron Fist… (NON SPOILER REVIEW) 

The excitement for Marvel’s Iron Fist has been surreal… This is the 4th part to Marvel’s collected series for the upcoming super hero mash-up show The Defenders. Out of all the Marvel’s Netflix shows Iron Fist is the character I knew the least about. So I was very excited to experience a brand new super hero, and learn everything about him through the new Netflix original… Let’s get to the impression!

I have made it half way through the season so far, and I am very surprised the reviews are as bad as they were.  On Rotten Tomatoes the show was given a dishonorable 15%. Shows like Daredevil (98%), Luke Cage (96%), and Jessica Jones (93%), have all had great critic success. Iron Fist did not see the same love. The first few episodes had a very slow pace to them. I will say that, but it made sense. We had to learn about the character, and why he is what he is. Around episode 4 is where the action begins to pick up, there are a lot of fighting scenes from episodes 4-7. If you can get past the slow start of the show it will be a very enjoyable time. Iron Fist has a very Arrowesk atmosphere with lost boy/turned billionaire/turned incredible fighter. 

Other than the action sequences there is also a very good emotional connection between the characters. You can truly tell they care for one another, and they will do whatever they can to help each other succeed. I would definitely recommend any comic book/super hero fans to give this show a shot.

I will give a full spoiler review of the show once I have finished the show! Make sure to check in at all The Nerd Chambers social media outlets: Twitter/Facebook/Instagram! Go tweet us and let us know what you think of Iron Fist!
