RE: Iron Fist...

As someone who enjoys most of the Marvel superhero mythos, Iron Fist is a disappointingly weak series with too many plot-holes and character inconsistencies. The plodding tale can't seem to decide on a plot, frequently setting up scenarios that don't advance the story, make no logical sense and create more questions than answers.

For instance, Iron Fist's side trip to backlot "China" w/o visas via private jet after holds were placed on the family money. The "drunken master" lift was a well filmed action scene, but perfunctory. There are times the series looks like it's trying to be a horror tale, other times a crime story, occasionally martial arts, urban fiction romance, and ...once in a great while... a superhero yarn. Unfortunately, all of these parts don't make up a cohesive whole. Definitely not on a par with other Marvel productions for Netflix.

A much better told story with good character development and much better martial arts scenes is the AMC series "Into the Badlands". I can highly recommend this series.
