Audience Reviews for Marvel's The Defenders: Season 1

  • 9h ago
    After being built up by four different shows, The Defenders feels slightly disappointing. But the weak narrative is luckily saved by the character's chemistry and the action sequences. It should have probably had some more episodes.
  • Jan 20, 2023
    The show starts off well enough, the production quality is high, and the show uses color in a fun way to help distinguish characters and locations. Unfortunately, the quality consistently drops as the season progresses, and the fun is pretty much sucked out of the show by the end. It feels like the writing was rushed as it is notably worse than the shows leading up to it (except Iron Fist). The titular characters have rather poor chemistry as their edgy personalities aren't different enough, and this is even more true for the villains. So much of the second half of the season consist of characters on the same side bickering to little effect. It sucks that this gathering of unlikely heroes ends up feeling like none of them want to be there.

    UNA MUY BUENA SERIE, LLENA DE ACCIÓN Y UN EXCELENTE REPARTO.
  • Oct 19, 2022
    i love this, hope for another season
  • Sep 18, 2022
    This team up was so dope and this needed to be made out of a movie!
  • Aug 12, 2022
    The mystical parts are not making good to the series, as with Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage we have got to know street-level crime, so the supernatural do not really belong among these guys. The villans and the story are lame, the "heros" and their unique chemistry are the only reasons to watch this 2.5th season of Daredevil.
  • Aug 08, 2022
    The Defenders has flaws and the Hand organization is completely and utterly wasted, but the talent and emotion pays off well. I was digging the plot and the ending was a perfect start to the last season of a masterpiece.
  • Aug 07, 2022
    Wish they made additional seasons. Hopefully they will now that Daredevil season 4 is coming.
  • Aug 06, 2022
    Fun to see everyone ''united''.
  • Jul 29, 2022
    Why do you think Daredevil's story is the main one in Defenders? Simple, because all the other shows were not up to it and gave us a conclusion that should have been much better.
