Iron Fist: 10 Reasons It's A Massive Disappointment

10. Badly Directed & Edited Fight Scenes

Considering how integral action sequences are to a show called Iron Fist, it's majorly frustrating how poor most of the series' fight scenes are.

From the first episode to the last, the majority of the battles are sloppily directed, with unimaginative framing and, worst of all, horrendously choppy editing that makes them more annoying than entertaining to watch.

There are a few good fights scattered throughout the series, but they're massively in the minority, and most are simply either boring or visually repulsive.

Given how well the other Marvel Netflix shows have delivered action (especially Daredevil), it's surprising how little care has gone into staging the fight scenes here. By the end of the show, you'll probably be sick of seeing fights in hallways.
