Bringing to life the much-loved story by British poet Ted Hughes, The Iron Giant takes place in a quiet American town in the 1960s. The tale begins when a young boy named Hogarth follows a trail of huge footprints leading from his house into the woods - and finds an iron giant from space! Instantly the two form a firm friendship, and when the army try and destroy this enormous visitor, Hogarth does everything he can to protect his giant pal. Beautifully animated, this is a film with lots of wit and a huge amount of heart.

    This movie is very good I was quite surprised that I would rate this film 5 stars it was cool when the iron man got electrocuted it was funny when a detective looking for the iron man raged at the phone and I liked this movie because there was funny parts and there was action in this movie and I highly recommend it.

    My opinion of the film was that the book was better than the film but the film was full of action and fighting! I liked the giant and loved the ending but I won't tell you what happens

    It was not the same as the book but if I had to pick out of the movie and the book my opinion would be the movie because it has more experience and more funnier. The iron man listens to Hogarth and if anyone fired a gun at him he would fire back and it is a good movie.
