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 movie was quite good because I thought the bad guy was silly and just wanted to kill the giant rather than help it .

    I liked this film because the Iron Giant kept hiding which was difficult because he was so big. He was really nice and wanted to look after human beings, but many men thought he was an enemy.

    The Iron Giant was incredible because he saved people and he was looked after by Hogarth. The film showed how adults can be silly by not trusting the giant, thinking he was an enemy and soldiers shooting at him.

    I found it exiting. I was not like any other I've seen. I wouldn't read the Iron Man book.

    I enjoyed this film because they was a Giant who can put his self together again. I find the film sad and boring. It didnt remind me of any other films. I like the animation. I would have liked to read the story. I liked when he turned into a massive gun.

    I did not like the film because it was boring.It was not like any other films i have seen. I would like it better if the actors wear real.It does not make me want to read the iron man.the best bit was when the army came.
