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.

    This is a film for families becayse anyone can watch it. I would rate this film 4 stars. The film is called the Iron giant. The book is called the Iron man it is published by Ted Hughes. The book is about an Iron man comming and defeating the space bat angle dragon although in the film he saves the world. This is a cartoon so it is not real so please don't go looking for metal monsters in the wood.

    Brilliant and weird because sometimes he loses his head and it gets replaced by a super battle droid from Star Wars!
