This review of The Defenders contains several spoilers, the first of which you might not want to hear: The long-awaited teaming of Marvel's four Netflix antiheroes-Daredevil/Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist/Danny Rand (Finn Jones)-is a plodding, clumsy and unlikable dud.
With less than 24 hours before the first season of The Defenders debuts, Netflix has released one final peek at the series, and it features quite the menacing voiceover and ominous words of wisdom from Sigourney Weaver as the new villain, Alexandra Reid. The trailer begins by introducing the characters one by one as Sigourney Weaver's villain confronts them in the restaurant. Claire is a huge glue stick that brings the four Defenders together.
It's little surprise that Ritter steals most scenes as Jessica Jones, always ready with a quippy put-down and frequently breaking off from the boys' club to pursue her own leads. "They will disappoint you and if I might give you some advice, the more connections you have, the easier it will be to break you", she says as the heroes' various friends and love interests are shown.
Filmed entirely in the Big Apple, "The Defenders" is steeped in the culture and custom of NY, a real-life backdrop that feels more organic than the fictional cities of Gotham or Metropolis. To which Luke Cage counters with "For all your talk of life, you sure bring a lot of death".
