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.

    This film was om but I think it was a bit more for boys because girls wouldn't really like to watch movies like this. There was some parts I did like but I didn't like that much of it.

    The iron giant was a very good film.But also sad at the end and this would be a good film for anyone up to 10 years old or over the iron giant was a very nice giant as well you should watch it.
