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 gave it a 3 star because it was very interesting and well animated.
    My favourite part was when he came crashing down to earth.

    I liked the film because its short, funny and enjoyable. My favourite part was when the squirrel went up the mans trousers. It was a tiny bit boring but most of It was fine. I would love to watch this animated film again.
