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.

    What I love about this film is that it was emotional at the end when the iron giant blew up and the little boy named Hogarth was crying because the giant was his best friend .But in the middle, when the giant saved two little boys, because when they were using their binocular the saw the giant on his own and one of the boy leaned forward and fell, but then he grabbed on to his brother ,but the binocular was hanging onto the wood, they couldn't hang on anymore and fell, but luckily the giant came to the rescue and saved the little boy. when the giant stood in the middle of the road, everyone was surprised because they didn't except to see a metal giant coming to save the little boys. I REALLY LOVE THIS FILM!

    First of all, the Iron Giant was an animated movie about a metal giant who made friends with a boy called Hogarth. In my opinion, this movie was really good because it was really interesting and it got me really emotional because of the sacrifices made in this movie. This movie was a really good movie. I really loved it because the people and things in this movie were really, really loved by the people around. It just touched my heart. Lastly, I would like to say this is the best animation movie I have watched.

    In this animated film, a giant alien robot crash-lands near the small town of Rockwell, Maine. Exploring the area, a 9-year-old boy, Hogarth, finds the robot and forms an unexpected friendship with him. In my opinion, this movie (The Iron Giant) is an incredible movie. In addition, I love this movie, because the giant alien robot risked his own life and died for everyone in Rockwell, Maine. Furthermore, the person, who made this movie should be very proud of themselves. On the other hand, the person, who made this movie could've improve it by adding another giant alien robot to make it exceptionally enjoyable to watch. I would recommend it to all of my friends and little cousins, who will enjoy it, because i wouldn't want them to miss out on it. Last of all, I give this movie an 8 out of 10, because it was very interesting, but it needs a little bit of improvement.
