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.

    It was not the same as the book but if I had to pick out of the movie and the book my opinion would be the movie because it has more experience and more funnier. The iron man listens to Hogarth and if anyone fired a gun at him he would fire back and it is a good movie.

    I enjoyed seeing the film version of the iron man but I was disappointed that there were things missing such as how the giant put itself together and it's fight with the angel dragon. There are lots of fight scenes so boys will like this

    It was great and it is one of my favourite films ever! The two main characters were the Iron giant and Hogarth, and my favourite part when the Iron giant fell of the cliff and flown up into the sky. My favourite character is the Iron giant.

    It is a good film my favrote charter was the iron giant because he can fly his friend is Hogarth. The iron man eats metal his favrote place to be is the scrap yard. I think it is a good film because it is funny and the iron giant is so big. I think it is a good film for a family to watch.
