Critic Reviews for Marvel's Iron Fist: Season 1

All Critics (59) | Top Critics (18)

The other three instalments of the franchise each had a distinct identity but Iron Fist feels like a spin-off rather than its own entity. There's no sense that it knows what it wants or needs to be.

Iron Fist is as creatively flat as a Jessica Alba Fantastic Four in how much it feels like a product, but even those movies have B-grade elements that offer some sort of escapism.

If you love Netflix's previous Marvel adaptations, Iron Fist probably will feel like homework in advance of The Defenders. The pacing is reminiscent of the leisurely vibe of the 1970s series Kung Fu, to which it has some obvious parallels.

...not a complete mess, but it's a significant step down in quality.

A relatively drab patch in that endless Marvel tapestry.

I can think of no reason Iron Fist would have been worse off for giving the part to an Asian actor. I also have no hope that would've made this show comprehensible or exciting.

There's a lot to like about Iron Fist, not least of which is Jessica Henwick's second-fiddle as Coleen Wing. Unfortunately, as a complete package it is not a success, and a lot of that blame can be laid at the feet of lead actor Finn Jones, but the lion's share goes to showrunner Scott Buck.

The writers really screwed this up.
