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 thought this film was quite sad.It was ok but would not watch it again. I would recommend the film certificate about 5 years and up. Hogarth goes from being a normal child to owning a metal eating robot.

    I really enjoyed the film. My favourite part was the start but I really liked the whole film. I think you would enjoy this film too because it is an animated film. This is perfect for kids and some adults would still enjoy it!
