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 liked this film because it was action packed,funny and full of different emotions. My favorite character is the Iron giant because he was a bit like a big toddler (and i mean a very big one)
    because he didn't know any words but then he learnt some. he was also my favorite character because he was very kind.My least favorite character was the person who was trying to get rid of him. my favorite part was when he fixed him self cause i thought he died but he didn't!
    I rate the film 4/5 only because iv'e seen it before.

    I liked the iron giant because it had really good characters.I love the part when the boy and the iron giant became friends and when they had fun together.I think the iron giant is the best film so far.
