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 is a magical film. It is about a giant robot that crash lands to earth and a boy becomes his friend. this film is funny for all ages including adults. the ending is a bit dramatic and tearful. A Great film.

    It was a great movie. It had really changed from the Ted Hughes book `The iron man`. It was funny when Hogarth's mum was coming up and he pulled his pants down and sat on the toilet when his mum came in. It was a good movie, especially how they added in the government agent.

    I really like it because the Iron Giant was really nice to a little boy. i don,t like the end because. the
    Iron Giant got hit by a bomb and dies. but Hugo had a screw left because that was the only
    thing to remember him by.there was a statue to remember the Iron Giant by. It said in loving
    memory of the Iron Giant.
