'Iron Invader' 2011 on the Syfy ChannelLast weekend the Original Saturday Night movie on the Syfy Channel was Iron InvaderIron Invader involves a meteorite that hits the Earth, bringing with it it bacteria that brings metal objects to life and when alive, the giant metal objects can kill humans with a mere touch by draining the metals from a person’s blood supply.

Iron Invader cast included some familiar faces from other Syfy Channel series:  Kavan Smith (Stargate Atlantis, Eureka, Red: Werewolf Hunger), Paul McGillion (Stargate Atlantis, Sanctuary), Donnelly Rhodes (Battlestar Galactica, Hunt to Kill, Tron: Legacy), Chris Gauthier (Eureka) and a few others.  Very few others.

If you’ve read my reviews you know that I look at a project as a team effort between writer, director and actors.  This movie was directed & written by Paul Ziller (Ice Quake, Stonehenge Apocalypse) and I don’t know what went wrong. The movie came across as if this was the first cut and no one was going to let the editor do more than a once-over to prepare it for the telecast.

Kavan Smith came off flat and stiff and the acting was just a bowl full of predictable, Saturday night movie acting.  And here I had started thinking that the movies were starting to get better for this particular medium!

There’s trouble in paradise, or […]
