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 this movie was ok and I had seen it once a long time ago. My favourite character was Kent Mansley because no one believed him and that was funny. This film was fine but it wouldn't be my first choice.

    Three stars I've seen the movie before and I've read the book. I don't know if its good or bad and there's not much to say. It's ok but not ok as well.

    The iron giant is as big as the big friendly giant I loved this film the iron giants weapons were so cool and he was a villain but at the end turned out he saved the whole town he even got his Own grave stone.

    I loved the Iron Giant. It reminded me of the BFG a lot. It's nice how it wasn't a normal giant but it was an Iron Giant.
