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 Iron Giant

    The iron giant was mad in 1999. I gave it a five star because of the funniness and the talking of the giant. The giant couldn't speak because it came from space. It ate metal for his lunch And his freind was Hogarth because he helped the giant from the electric shock the giant found aloud of food from the scrap place where is 5,000,000 metal there.

    Sorry I couldn't write much because it deleted some how but bye
    and say thanks to Mrs nessa.

    The Iron Giant was about a metal machine that was in space it went to the earth a little boy called Hogarth her mum Annie had to work at night because she had a restaurant she called Hogarth to tell him no watching scary movies, sleep at 8.00am, no going out. Hogarth was watching a movie suddenly the TV broke someone bited off the half. he was scared he went outside with a torch sacredly he got a bigger torch for more light. he was walking through the deep dark woods when he saw a giant it was massive and big then he wanted to eat electric stuff he got a shocked Hogarth ran but then he stopped he wanted to help the giant he tried to pull the switch off he did but he was so scared that he ran he didn't know that the giant was friendly. my favourite part was when they were friends.
