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 is a great kid’s film.
    It is about a boy named Hogarth Hugh’s who accidently comes across giant robot Hogarth teaches the iron giant to talk he reads comics to him and teaches him that guns kill. The only problem was that the government was after them and a detective was actually living with a detective.
    My favourite character is Hogarth because he thinks the whole thing is a game and he is very sarcastic.
    I always get tears at the end of this film.
    Hope you enjoy.

    One (direction) of the best animations ever. It is very imaginative but also very moving. Not soppy...


    there is a difference.
