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 thought film was boring and awesome at the same time.The only part of this film that i liked was when the iron giant learned to talk. the part i did not like was when the deer died.It was not my cup of tea. It is very good family film to watch.I would not like to watch this film again. And that is why i gave it four stars.

    I have watched this film thousands of times before and it is always good to watch. I would have given it 5 stars if i hadn't seen it so many times. It is fabulously entertaining, with lots of action and drama. I loved the bit when the giant dived into the pond and Hogarth got stuck up a tree,it was really funny. The story is lovely, about a boy who has no friends and finally finds one. It is a funny and sad film that family and friends can watch together.

    I thought this was a very fasinating movie.
    It is a animation movie, about a big iron gaint who comes from a different planet and finds a boy called Hogarth and he tries to keep the iron gaint out of harm.

    This film is directed by Brad Bird in 1999 he has been in some movies you might of seen,
    The incredibles 1 and 2
    The fox and the hound
    Mission impossible - gost protical
    Ratatouile

    There is also Vin diesel who is in one of my favourite sieries fast and furious.

    I recomend this to familys and children.

    Thank you for reading my review.
