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 like this film because it shows true love between friend ship and it was rated 7 out of 10 in the saddest film. I think it is 1 out of 10 for the best saddest film.

    Best Animation I've seen in a while. A heart-warming story of a Boy and his Robot! Incredible voice-acting paired with amazing animation, all elements for a movie still good 15 years after production! Must see Film!
