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 am not giving this film 5 stars because it is a very sad film, especially at the end, so I am giving it 4 stars. The main character is the Iron Giant who is very defensive when he gets threatened. The hero is the Iron Giant because he saves everyone from the bomb but luckily he can reassemble all his parts, but does he die or not?

    This film was very sad but at some points boring because of the talks. The best part is when the giant saves everyone from the bomb.
