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 loved this film it was action packed and has some twists thoughout the movie. It is about this boy who goes out exploring by him self and then finds a big iron eating Iron giant.

    It can be quite sad at moments but other than that if your into Japanese animations and action packed movie I would highly regomend this film to you!

    I liked The Iron Giant because there was lovely friendship between the boy and the giant.
    It was also good because the giant robot was good at the start.
