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.

    The iron giant is a great film! It has a good back story and has a mix of fun, excitment and sadness. If you were going to watch this film i would get some coke and a paket of popcorn and get ready for a bumpy ride!

    I love The Iron Gian.t I love the bond between the iron giant and Hogarth especially how he was so scared when he first saw the iron giant and when The Iron Giant kept following Howgarth.

    I liked it, especially the funny parts. There is an evil detective who frendly or not wants to kill the iron giant. I only gave it three stars because it was too sad and nearly made me cry. I recomend it to people who arnt touchy and sensative.
