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.

    In my opinion I think the film was GREAT, because the iron giant really was a good character. I liked when he zooms into space and grabs the bomb and saves everyone in the town. This film "I think" can be a very emotional film but it can be happy too. Some people may think its boring but in other kids opinions its a good film. by Mia

    This film was good but I did not really enjoy it because it was really childish.
    I would recommend this film to children around the ages 1 and 100000 because it is a family suitable film


    A giant monster zooms down from space like a spaceship and lands in the middle of the sea and scares the life out of an old, drunk fisherman . the monster only eats metal and steals peoples things like tractors and Ariel's. suddenly, one dark night there was a problem at the power station and a young brave boy called Hogarth goes to investigate what is happening and then he sees ,.................................................

    If you want to find out what happens next you will have to watch the brill film on your own TV , tablet Or whatever you happens

    I hate this film because is so boring. There is no sense of adventure. The only deacent part is when the iron giant eats the electric poles. there is no action. The police man should be more daft. They never have fun and take every thing seariosly
