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 watching this film. My best part was when the Iron man, who was quite lonely at the beginning, found a friend called Hogarth Hughes. Find out what happens to the giant that eats steel in this animated film . I hope you enjoy this film, because I really enjoyed the 86minutes film.

    Brilliant film, but it's 1 of the 10th film that I have seen that starts with a sea scene. I love the film. It's my 2nd favorite film. I like animated pictures. The film is about a robot that falls from the sky. Hogarth hughes found the iron giant first. Watch the film to find out what happens next?

    we just watched an amazing film. Hogarth heard a sound he went out to the woods and saw the giant. I loved the part when Hogarth and the giant saw the reindeer. it was sad when the giant saw it dead. I didn't like it when the giant was angry because he hated guns. go and watch this film it awesome.
