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.

    In my opinion I thought it was a great film but sad at the ending. Apart from that I would recommend you to watch it. Some parts were funny, and if you like adventure film this is one but it is cartoon as well.

    This film was made in 1999 really good starting and the model of the iron giant i really like the end of it even though its pretty short its pretty good and the end is really sad with iron giant exploding and pretty funny at the same time 5/5 touching and basically what a giant made of iron would do to survive in the real world

    I liked the part when the Iron giant got hit by the train and ate the policeman's car.

    I did not like it because it was a wee bet scary at the end and the start.
