    8.0/10. I love to see all these Marvel heroes team up and work together. once it gets past the first 2 painfully boring episodes, it gets so much more epic.
  • Jul 15, 2021
    The show wasn't good, but after years with the characters, it gets two points for content and conclusion. I'd have been more interested in a story about the four of them being attacked by ninjas while buying groceries by the end.

    Besides Daredevil this show was pretty slow , cringe and awkward , only watched for daredevils story
  • May 23, 2021
    Between the one liner dialogues and slow pace of storytelling, I woulnd't waste the time. It is obisous that it hopes to replicate the success of the Avengers. Stick with the Daredevils series. The only reason I wateched it was to follow the storyline for Daredevil. This series is a complete failure.

    It's the closest we are going to get to a Power Man & Iron Fist adaptation.

    I really like it when multiple heroes team up to fight against a greater evil. The Defenders is a good series. I loved seeing them interact with each other and hearing their banter. I liked every action scene. Great combat choreography as we've come to expect from the Netflix Marvel series. I also think the pacing was good, I don't remember ever being bored. There are also some twists in the story. One of the main criticisms of this series was that the Hand was a boring and underwhelming villain. I don't think that. They weren't the best villain, but they weren't bad by any means.

    It's not The Avengers and it's certainly not Daredevil, but THE DEFENDERS is good in its own right, though greatly lacking in what its potential had to offer, including a possibly great but sadly squandered villain by Sigourney Weaver.

    Daredevil is the best out of these characters
