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 really enjoy this film. But I'm guessing that your not sure why I didn't give it 5 stars that is because I don't really like cartoon films and this film is cartoon but apart from that I really enjoyed this film.
    I would recommend this film to a 5+ because it would be appropriate for that age.

    I enjoyed the film The Iron Giant because it had some intresting parts like when hogarth made friends with the Iron Giant. My favroite part of the film was at the end when the giant saved the village but sacrificed himself. I only rated 4 stars because the animation is old because the movie was made back in 1999. This movie is different to other movies because the main character trys to save a giant and the main character thinks the giant trys to kill him but the giant becomes friendly. The movie is about friendship between hogarth and the Iron Giant. The police and army try to take down the giant. The music made it more intresting at exiting parts. When it got towards the end I think it got it bit boring until the giant saved the village.

    The iron Giant had a nice a story to it some parts it was intresting some times i got extremely bored. The story is about a boy called Hogarth and a robot called the Iron Giant it is a story with friendship and honesty this is about Hogarth trying to save and cover up the Giant from the Evil detective. Here are some examples why it was boring,firstly it had two many toilet scenes also it was not exiting.The good parts are,that it got you wondering what is going to happen next and it is really makes some people scared and want to cheer on the Iron Giant at the end. Personlly my favriote part was at the end when the Iron Giant tryed to be the villages hero. The films animation was so out of date it's not like now because it has black outline. I rated this three stars because i got bored and exiting i thought it was an okay film.
