No heroism to be seen at all in this movie
1 April 2015 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Even when taking into account that it's low budget and that it's not to be taken seriously, Iron Hero is inexcusably bad and with no entertainment value.

It looks bad for starters, the photography is washed out and enough to make one dizzy, the sets are incredibly simplistic in how they look and limited in number(they all don't look anything like what they're meant to be), the costumes are of second hand fancy dress-quality and the special effects while wisely not excessively used are artificially cartoonish. The music is sluggish, generic stuff that's only there for the sake of it without adding to anything that's happening. The muddied sound quality doesn't help.

The movie is dreadfully written too, with a script with a lot of talk that a lot of the time goes nowhere, being only there to pad out the running time, and peppered with ham-fisted and awkwardly paced dialogue. The story is incredibly tedious and is barely existent, with nothing thrilling, fun or suspenseful in sight and with clichés that would fill a whole novel. Don't expect good action sequences, the action here is very lazily choreographed that makes the worst SyFy/Asylum action sequences seem professional in comparison and so choppily edited that it is not always easy to discern who's who. The (very) stereotypical characters range between annoying and bland, and less said about the acting the better, with a lead hero that is boorishly uncharismatic and as stiff as a board and a lead villain that takes camp to uncomfortable extremes.

All in all, very bad and inexcusably. 1/10, and that is solely for the cool DVD cover. Bethany Cox
