Without the weight of exposition, Iron Fist seems unbothered.

Sep 20, 2018 | Full Review…

To its credit, the idea of Colleen being the real star of the show isn't an idea "Iron Fist" doesn't seem to hate.

Sep 10, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

...Iron Fist is a straight-up chock-socky beat 'em up, and that's fine.

Sep 5, 2018 | Full Review…

The cast of the series is very diverse, but the storyline itself is only intermittently progressive.

Aug 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Full of enjoyable action, mostly enjoyable characters and a simple plot that's great to see unfold.

Feb 3, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

After a terrible first season that swung wildly and lamely, a deeply revamped Marvel's Iron Fist... finally packs a real punch.

Dec 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Iron Fist's second season is infinitely more aware of the property's inherent narrative snagging points than the first, but rather than avoid them altogether, it makes a valiant effort of actually trying to mold them into something.

Nov 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Much like our hero, it's clear that the series still has its share of growing pains to work through, but Season 2 at least marks a step in the right direction.

Nov 28, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

This Iron Fist ain't immortal, he's got a real short shelf life.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Everything you hated about Iron Fist season 1 is gone and the remaining elements are tightly reconstructed into a superhero thriller that ups the ante for every Marvel television franchise.

Audience Reviews for Marvel's Iron Fist: Season 2

  • Aug 29, 2019
    Awesome show, like all Marvel shows however, I wish they would've killed off Colleen in Season 1. I've never been so angry at a TV show before in my entire life. Almost couldn't watch Season 2 because of her nagging character. Whenever she is on screen it is impossible to become immersed in the story, because as a fan, you want your superhero to be strong on his own, independent vigilante finding his own path. But Colleen is the ol' ball n' chain for all of Season 2. Of course we all know where that leads. I hoped for so much more for Iron Fist...

    Serious improvement over season 1.

    i could not even finish this season it felt even worse then the first no character development no interesting characters

    This series as all the other Netflix marvel hero series has a certain vibe to it that mixes very well with the genre. The story and human character connections are down to earth and kept realistic even though the show has mystical and magical elements to it. The actors all did an amazing job delivering their complex characters, and combined that with the great writing and no plot armor or plot wholes script delivers an overall great story. The shots of sequences often breaks immersion but it has a feel to it which is unique to the Iron Fist. The cinematography can be appreciated for it's originality alone. The music and sounds create more immersion and entertainment value.The conclusion on the other hand was messed up and gave no satisfaction or closure at that. It was a build up and a mystery that will never be explained due to the show being cancelled. Overall it's a good TV series which could have been very good if the show writers haven't messed up the ending.

    It's significantly better than its debut season with good pacing and somehow I feel that 10 episodes is a tad too short by ep8, I really wanted more of it. Better character development for Danny and Colleen's character is awesome as usual.
  • Apr 28, 2019
    'Iron Fist' Season 2 is more consistent in quality than its last entry, but it hits with lower highs alongside its higher lows as well. The stakes feel underwhelming, but also not personal enough to compensate as the simplistic conflict between Danny and Davos (Sacha Dhawan) just doesn't measure up as an investing narrative. Though Danny feels a bit better as a character, the best the season really has going for it are Colleen and Misty's all too brief Daughters of the Dragon team-ups, and even then, the action choreography still doesn't feel near being up to snuff.

    Much improved over season 1. Good enough I was disappointed when it was canceled
  • Feb 24, 2019
    Better than the first season. You get to see him without the fist. The siblings are not as annoying and you can be interested in their stories. The last minute of it is the most interesting and makes you wish it had not been cancelled.
  • Feb 21, 2019
    Season 2 did a really good job on convincing that the protagonist who was trained for his whole life to become The Immortal Iron Fist doesn't deserve its power
  • Jan 28, 2019
    Way better than Season 1, worth a watch.
