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.

    I love the Iron Giant which is about a young boy who becomes friendly with an Iron giant that is from out of space. I love the part when the Giant eats metal as I thought this was very funny. I have even read the book but I think the film is better than the book. I think you should see the film.The Iron Giant because it isn't just good, not even great, but in fact it is AMAZING!. Come on, go and watch it as you will love it..

    it is a very funny film, at the end it seems sad but it is not (trust me) I think it is nice that the iron Giant learn to talk just by listening to the little boy .

    I'll give it five star because there was lots of action and lots of emotions. Also because the giant sometimes turnes into self diffence. I like the Iron Giant because it's a mix of amotions. Its quite sad when the iron giant gets killed by the bomb but it's quite emusing when dean gets flooded with water and washed into the middle of the road.
