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.

    The iron giant w\as a great film, the bond and friendship between a robot and a human could never been so fun. The troubles of the human was helped by the giant and when the world was against the giant the boy help.

    This Ted Hughes book deserves a 5 star

    I really liked this film. It was a about a boy growing up with his mum working late hours. And then something happens hat night what will it be you will have to find out.

    I did not give this film a 5 star because it was a cartoon and i don't like cartoons that much but you might so tis might be a good film for you.

    I recommend this film for 6+

    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.
