TV Review - Iron Fist (2017)
Finn Jones (Game of Thrones) stars as Danny Rand, the heir to a powerful company after his parents died in a plane crash. Danny was in that plane crash in the Himalayas, but he survived. He was then raised and trained by warrior monks. They say he's part of an ancient legend called the Iron Fist. He returns to New York City to reclaim his place after 15 years, but everyone has assumed him dead after so long.
What does he do when he gets into Manhattan? He strolls into a high-rise, office building like a homeless person, barefoot and disheveled. When he realizes the people in the building don't believe him because why would they, he doesn't go to the authorities. He doesn't try to get a lawyer or even go to the media. He instead starts stalking the people in the building until they have to lock him up in a loony bin.
Eventually, he does get a lawyer, but it takes four episodes for that stupidity to be cleared up. The series then plunges into a drug plot-line that just feels stretched too thin and not worthy of the time invested.
Running Time: 1 hr. / 13 eps.
Available on Netflix.
