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.

    The funny bit was when he was eating the christmas tree and I liked when he was building himself at the end of the film.

    Hogarth did not like it when the giant went away and this made me sad.

    I liked it because he sacrificed himself to save the town and it was also funny when the man tried to escape.

    My favourite part was when the Iron Gaint was eating a Christmas tree.
    I also liked the end when he was buliding himself back together again.
    Over all I thought it was awsome and I would love to have an Iron Giant.
