A prison escapee on a bank robbing rampage is labeled "The Bullet Proof Man" by the press. Dressed in a thin, pliable substance that he claims was left behind by a UFO, the ammo just bounces off of him.

Little Respect for the Dead
18 July 2013 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The story is quite simple. A common thug chances on a metal that when struck, literally absorbs the missile. For instance, a bullet is pretty much absorbed. The finder is an escaped convict who tries to turn his find into cash. He goes to a professor's lab and threatens him with a gun. They make a deal, but the professor uses it as a diversion. Unfortunately for him, he fires at the man, hitting the metal and having it ricochet back, killing him. The rest of the episode is about the pickup of the cash as the bad guy explains how he came upon the metal. Apparently it was an alien craft. While the metal is interesting, there is nothing very intriguing about it.
