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 really liked this film. It was a about a boy growing up with his mum working late hours. And then something happens hat night what will it be you will have to find out.

    I did not give this film a 5 star because it was a cartoon and i don't like cartoons that much but you might so tis might be a good film for you.

    I recommend this film for 6+

    I really enjoy this film. But I'm guessing that your not sure why I didn't give it 5 stars that is because I don't really like cartoon films and this film is cartoon but apart from that I really enjoyed this film.
    I would recommend this film to a 5+ because it would be appropriate for that age.
