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 absolutely loved the film and there are so many good features that I can't explain them otherwise I might give away the plot line and I love it that it is really different to the book which has a giant monster in it!!!!!!

    The Iron Giant is amazing and is about a boy ( called Hogarth) who finds an giant made out of iron.
    He has a tough job protecting it but has an even tougher job when the government find out.
    I really like this film and would like to see it again.
