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 liked the iron man because there were a lot of funny moments in the movie my favourite part was when he learned to speak and when he said that he was super man and put an s on his chest and it was very good near the end it is pretty different to the book especially at the end of the movie.there are different charters in the movie than in the book.
