    Thanks to reinvigorated fighting and spotlights yielded to the real stars, Iron Fist improves on its first season. ... The show also uncovers a bigger problem. Its lead character doesn’t deserve top billing, and maybe never.

    Iron Fist Season 2 marks an improvement over its well-derided freshman run, but still lacks punch.

    If you liked the first season of Iron Fist, Season 2 improves upon it. If you didn’t like it, well, there’s not much to recommend to you regarding a return. It’s a show that seems like it might be improved by not bingeing it, but it’s so sleepy that once you walk away from it you may forget to return.

    Its fight scenes vastly improve upon the garbage disposal-like quality of jump cuts masquerading as brawls in season one, and the writing has moved away from the mind-numbing exposition that characterized much of season one, trusting the audience to understand what’s happening without dialogue constantly reminding them. However, Iron Fist’s second season isn’t exactly good when in the context of television outside of Iron Fist. Parts of it are still staggeringly clunky.

    Iron Fist's sophomore season isn't able to right the many wrongs from its first. Don't waste your time on this one.

    More so than in any other Netflix superhero show, Iron Fist never figures out how to build an aesthetic that reconciles its naturalistic performances and its dialogue, which tends to fall into one of two categories: no-frills information delivery or failed cleverness.

    I really liked this season of Iron Fist and I think he is going to develop even more throughout the show.

Finn Jones still can't seem to be able to learn choreography which makes the fighting scenes look dreadful. His acting isn't something to write home about either. It's mind-boggling how his acting can make good actors look like bad actors. On top of that it still seems like he hasn't been to a gym once in his life which if you look at Daredevil, Thor, Black Panther, Captain America and hell even Iron Man are being put on a strict training schedule and diet to look the part. Which is not the case for Iron Fist. I'm not saying he's supposed to be as buff as a Thor but at least look like a fighter.

    Another thing that bothers me is the casting of Davos. He's probably the most un-intimidating antagonist I've ever seen. A 5'7 cuddly Indian dude with a British accent. But at least he is more ripped than Iron Fist.

    Now about the show itself. There are so many unnecessary scenes that make the pace of the show slow down so much that my mind drifts off every couple of minutes. When watching a show like Mr. Robot even the scenes where there are no dialogue you'll get information about what's going on. Everything in a scene is there for a reason, like lighting, position of the character, background music and much more. But in this show it makes you aware of the fact that you just wasted 15 seconds on people walking through doors, going up stairs or whatever, staring at nothing. (Not sure if that made any sense lol) What I'm trying to say is that a 50 minute episode could've been cut down to 35 and you wouldn't have missed anything.

    All in all it feels like a chore to watch; which is a bummer because I've liked all Marvel shows until now. (Except Jessica Jones Season 02)

    the female cast is great, and that's what makes the two wet blankets that play lead and villain so cringeworthy. Charisma voids that arethe female cast is great, and that's what makes the two wet blankets that play lead and villain so cringeworthy. Charisma voids that are neither heroic nor menacing. We already knew Iron Fist himself was a bit rubbish but making Davos the main villain? wow, i've seen more imposing boxes of kittens. The character choices make little sense, and it chugs along with grim resolve, let's hope the Punisher is an antidote to this tepid nonsense. Expand

The amount of convenience, plot points that are so foreshadowed they rip you out of immersion, and meaningless fight scenes to break up the tedium. At least in season one the characters had dependable personalities. Even the continuity of season one is completely ignored, so the abilities of the Iron Fist may no longer be around (healing).

    If Misty inappropriately smirks one more time, or Joy does her inappropriate laugh, I think I am just going to stop watching Marvel anything on Netflix. Perhaps binge watching CW quality material is not a good idea after all. I miss the days when Netflix was sparsely offering quality, instead of shoveling quantity.
