Will The Negative Reviews Stop You From Watching Marvel’s Iron Fist?

Has Marvel lost its perfect track record with the Marvel Netflix series? On this week’s episode of the Temple of Geek “ToGCast”, we discussed the negative reviews that ‘Iron Fist’ has received prior to its premiere. Are they justified? We don’t know because at the time of this writing, the show is not yet out.

On the podcast, we reviewed the site Metacritic.com and learned that the show has a Metascore of 35. If you look up ‘Iron Fist’ on Rottentomatoes.com, you will find that the show has a 14% critic score. Why the low scores? It appears that the biggest complaint is that the story does not seem to be up to par as the previous shows have been. Another complaint, is that the fight sequences are not that great. Have they not seen the teasers for this show?

The critics obtained the first 6 episodes of the series to review. Did Marvel give critics enough of the show to watch and review properly? I don’t think so. Especially when dealing with an origin story that needs to be developed across the entire season. The critics should have been given the entire show or nothing at all. For a powerhouse like Marvel, these early reviews hurt the show at the start. They do nothing but give fans a reason to go into the show with doubt and possibly not give the show a chance.

The show will debut on Netflix March 17th 2017. I will be there binge watching it this weekend and will form my own opinion of the show. Did any of these early reviews give you doubts about the show? We want to hear from you. let us know by commenting below and also, why don’t you listen to Marcus, Jonathan and I discuss this topic on this week’s episode of the “ToGCast“!

Danniel Slade

Slade started Temple of Geek in 2012 with his friend as a podcast. Since then, it has become a lot more. His obsessions are Transformers, Star Wars, Classic Video Games, Superheroes, and comedies. Slade's life was turned to the Darkside when his father gave him a gift in 1985. He was presented with the leader of the Decepticons, Megatron. Since then, Slade has become a collector of the robots in disguise. The only other thing that comes close to Slade's love of Transformers is Star Wars. He has met a few of the cast over the years. Slade's one goal in life is to meet with George Lucas and just discuss movies with him.
