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.

    Hogarth is very bold-hearted as he set of on his quest to make sure the evil businessman does not find out about the Iron Giant (Iron man.)

    I love the film it was brillant !! ♥♥
    The begining was quite boring because it was just a ruined forest.Luckily,it got better and better.
    I really enjoyed thi film but I didnt get into it that much.I think this is an adventure kind of story because it is fiction,it has an iron giant and it is set in the forest mostly in some city!
    I like this film and I hope that if you watch it you will really enjoy it too !!
