What happens when you get Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) and The Iron Fist (Finn Jones) together to fight the evil force that is The Hand? Eight episodes of action? Well, kind of. There were some amazing fight scenes, and it was great to see these characters, along with their various sidekicks and the like together, but yet to me, it was lacking something. I wanted to like this more, I really did. And despite not loving it, I really want more. Plus it was great to see Sigourney Weaver in a pretty tops role.
The Defenders was about to be released and I realised that I’d watched three of the four series that come together. I’d better watch the Iron Fist, yes?
Well, it’s fine. There’s a multi-millionaire who everyone thought had died as a child in an accident with his parents until he reappears. Turns out, he’d been living in a monastery on another plane learning mad martial arts skills and developing a fist that glows red when he’s totally focussed. His father’s company is now run by his old childhood friends, and he needs to convince them not only that he is alive but that he is good. But who can he trust?
This was pretty average. There was some good evil villain stuff, but generally it was formulaic and cheesy. But on to The Defenders!
