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 watched the film at Film Club and the characters are a Giant Robot and a little boy called Hogarth. The Iron Giant Robot likes to eat metal and blocks a train and causes an accident. A man from the army comes to investigate but his car gets eaten and he decides the robot is dangerous. Hogarth tries to protect the robot and he hides him in the scrapyard. The film is a little bit sad but also funny when Hogarth is teaching him to do a canon ball in the lake. I recommend this film for everybody over 4 years old.

    The Iron Giant was an average film, not the best film ever but worth watching. My favourite bit was when the iron giant jumped in the lake. Very good and thank you Mr Paton
