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 film was really good and I loved the bit when the iron giant was evil, and then the boy saved him and helped him to talk and be nice.:-)I felt a bit sad when the iron giant sacrificed himself to save the kid.BUT!?! Some how all his pieces reconnected and boom he was alive.I would recommend a boy to be watching the film, I don't think that girls would like it much
