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 give this film a 3/5 star because i liked the part when the boy first met the iron giant and the part that I didn't really like is the part when that guy rented the room in the house because that guy was being really mean to that little boy the part that I found funny is the part when the iron giant came into the pool and splashed the other guy that was reading a news paper all with water. i kind of liked this film I might watch it again.

    I love IRON GIANT because it has lots and lots of coolness and loads of action as well. You should not allow this film for children 7 and under because it does get scary at one part. This story is amazing! You have got to watch it!!!

    In the iron giant there was an alien invasion with not just any kind of alien but the alien that came from space was not a silmy one it was metal. When the alien came down to earth he met a boy named Hogarth and he was not just any ordinary child but he was one who was a helper for the Iron Giant because the iron giant got tangled in telephone wires and so Hogarth turned the electricity off.
