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 love the film it was brillant !! ♥♥
    The begining was quite boring because it was just a ruined forest.Luckily,it got better and better.
    I really enjoyed thi film but I didnt get into it that much.I think this is an adventure kind of story because it is fiction,it has an iron giant and it is set in the forest mostly in some city!
    I like this film and I hope that if you watch it you will really enjoy it too !!

    I love the Iron Giant which is about a young boy who becomes friendly with an Iron giant that is from out of space. I love the part when the Giant eats metal as I thought this was very funny. I have even read the book but I think the film is better than the book. I think you should see the film.The Iron Giant because it isn't just good, not even great, but in fact it is AMAZING!. Come on, go and watch it as you will love it..
