Storyline

Brothers Jake and Ethan witness something crashing to earth and discover that it is a satellite of some kind. Being broke, they collect it and sell it to the local scrap dealer, Earl. Earl, meanwhile, has built an 18 foot "Golem" out of scrap iron to be used in the local town parade. The satellite is infected with some type of space bacteria which feeds on metal and also causes said metal to become animated. The result is that the Golem becomes infected, comes alive, and begins killing people by sucking the metals from their body with just a touch. Jake must find a way to defeat the Golem and save the town. Written by Hubert Jassol

The people from the bar use high proof alcoholic beverages to kill the alien bacteria. Yet when they pour these very flammable liquids on the burning pieces of the blown up sculpture the fires go out. The fires should have gotten bigger instead of being put out. See more »

Not so bad coming from SyFy, but not particularly good either
21 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A vast majority of the time, I intensely dislike SyFy's output, but there have also been some surprisingly tolerable if not great projects. Fortunately for Iron Invader, it falls into the latter category. The acting while not great is decent, likewise with the special effects with the Golem creature actually quite good, and the film with a somewhat intriguing concept starts off quite well. Sadly, the film loses it at the halfway mark, with the camera work becoming increasingly dizzying, the limited production values becoming more obvious and the pace becoming sluggish. While intriguing and starting off fine, the story is too thin to sustain the running time, the characters are rather shallow and the script is laughable in places. In conclusion, not good, not awful, just alright. 4/10 Bethany Cox
