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.

    HOGAAAAAAARTH!!!!!! I loved this film because of the mix of emotions, the adventure and the comedy. I think it adapted the book very well in a child friendly fashion which I personally like. My favourite part was when Hogarth sat in the car and got the Iron giant to spin him rapidly and when the Iron giant jumped in the pool and splashed everyone because it lets out the adventurous and comedic aspect to the film. I would highly recommend the film to people over the age of 7 because as I said it adapted the book in a child friendly fashion. Hopefully you like it as much as I do.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! The iron giant ,this movie is really good because the iron giant jumps in the river and then... all of the water goes flying away on the main road
    I actually think that this movie should be made for children over 5 year old because this film is a bit dramatic and there is a such a sad part when then the iron giants friend dies
    Don't remember to watch this awesome movie
    DON'T FORGET!!!!!
