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 loved the film, despite the fact it is quite old. I love science fiction movies, as they normally have a great plot. The film was very funny and I'd recommend it to any one looking for a disney-like animated film.:)

    I liked this film, especially when the boy became friends with the robot. I didn't like the army trying to trace the robot down to blow it up! Overall, this was an emotional film!

    It was quite a heart warming film. I also felt very moved by it. I don't normally cry at these films but this one got me. I hope there is another film like this at film club! 4/5

    I think we could have known a little more about everyone in the end and it could have been a little more exiting or scary. In the end I struggled not to cry and it was reasonably great film but it didn't make me laugh once. 3 stars

    This was an enjoyable film. It was good to see how the relationship developed in the film and I also liked the way that the film ended so that there might be another one!
