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 loved The Iron Giant it'a a great Movie. I recomend this Movie for all Ages. It's on for 86 mins which is farely long. I rate this Movie 5-5. My favourite part is where the Kid find's The Iron Giant. I didn't like the Soldiers because they were trying to destroy The Iron Giant. And as I said already I loved this Movie.

    Definitely not what I expected. Not really that great because it was quite boring throughout most of the movie. I think the fact that it was a cartoon made it that bit worse 2/5
