Could have been better
31 August 2019 | by jamesroyholdSee all my reviews

Extremely disappointing. The title character does not live up to his potential. With a name like the Iron Claw and possessing a metal hand you'd think he'd use that appendage for some gruesome chokings and beatings and stuff. He doesn't. In fact, the metal hand never comes into play. The heroine does nothing but scream. She's the most useless person ever in any serial. Most chapter plays have some sort of plot that moves along. This one simply rambles trying to fill the allotted time. All in all a waste of what could have been a fine villain.
