Netflix's Iron Fist
Initially Ward and Joy rebuke the idea that Danny is in fact, the real Danny Rand. They go so far as to have him committed. The fact that he is carrying a fake passport and explains his disappearance away as being trapped in a different dimension that he can only leave every 15 years.
Eventually Danny builds up enough chi and break out of the mental hospital with the help of…his iron fist. Danny has spent the last 15 years training with warrior monks to defeat a villainous gang named the Hand. (We are introduced to the Hand in the Daredevil series). Danny is now an expert marital arts specialist and can make his fist light up and punch through really hard things (including people).
Danny also struggles to find his way while working at his dad’s old company. Danny is the majority shareholder so he carries the weight when it comes to most of the company’s decisions however he clearly doesn’t have business sense and is quickly making enemies on the company’s board.
The show is hit or miss. Some of the episodes are really interesting however Danny sometimes acts like a teenager in a grown man’s body and it’s hard to see some of the amateurish things that he does. Also, for him to be a trained kung fu master, he gets beat up pretty often and his moves often lack precision and look choppy.
-great supporting cast
-lackluster fight scenes
-less than believable main character
