Action/Drama that’s just a little slow, a LOT of dialog and slowly unwinding plot. Watchable, but just.
This gritty, action-packed drama follows the evolution of Luke Cage (Mike Colter),a man with super strength and unbreakable skin caused by a sabotaged experiment. After a failed relationship with fellow superhero Jessica Jones, Cage tries to rebuild his life in Harlem, New York, but is pulled out of the shadows and forced to fight for the heart of his city. Along the way, Cage cannot avoid confronting his past, which he has worked hard to bury. “Marvel’s Luke Cage” is the third show in the Netflix-original Defenders series.
