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 love this film it is very interesting and kind of sad. In addition, I loved all the parts when Hogarth was very kind. This film is very interesting.Trust me. You should watch it. By the way, I gave it 4 out of 5 because of what happened at the end. This film is very attractive, I would watch it a million time. If you watch it make sure you enjoy it. Just to inform you, Hogarth can be very mischievous and is very mischievous most of the times. But I just want you to have a great time watching it. PEACE!

    I really liked watching the iron giant because the giant was very helpful to Hogarth and Hogarth was friendly to the giant by getting the giant to safety. However , I didn't like the part when the soldiers tried to kill the giant because it was unkind and I also didn't like when the giant exploded but luckily
    he got his body fixed .On the other hand, Hogarth was so helpful by telling the giant new word he didn't under stand but I really enjoyed watching it.

    The Iron giant was a AMAZING movie. I absolutely loved the movie there was so much suspense
    the reason i gave this movie 4 stars and not 5 is because i disliked one bit which was when the iron giant died and they ended up finding his body.

    but other than that i really loved the movie especially when the smart gunk yard owner mad a art piece out of the iron giant so the general wouldn't find and capture him i also liked when the hodges mum got married to the gunk yard owner it was a very happy ending.

    The Iron Giant is a FANTASTIC movie. Whereas, I rate this 3 stars because there were some parts that I disliked. I will tell you my reasons why.
    This movie was an animation(a movie with cartoon characters) and the colours of the different themes really emphasized what was happening.When there was a happy theme the colours were vibrant and beautiful and when there was a sad or disappointing theme, the colours were gloomy and glum.
    I rate this 3 stars because I really enjoyed how brave the young boy was to save the iron giant. It was extremely courageous of him to do something like that. On the other hand, I disliked when the police and army came to try and kill the iron giant. My back up is simple. Why try and hurt someone if they haven't done anything to hurt you? Do you just want the glory of hurting someones dreams?
    This was a exceptionally good film to review about and I hope other people enjoy it aswell.
