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 the film and its very funny and exiting but it spoilt it because I have already watched it a few times and I also think, no offence, that its a kid movie.

    Overall it was a brilliant movie, one of the best!

    I loved the iron giant, it was very interesting. I especially loved the part when he got a bit off the sergeant and it started beeping and then the iron giant got fixed together. I would love to watch it again.
