"The Iron Giant" tells the story of young Hogarth, who becomes the luckiest kid in the world after discovering an Iron Giant in his Maine backyard. Hogarth becomes the best friend and unlikely guardian to the 50-foot metal-eating Giant, as the military closes in to hunt down the "alien" invader. Through their experiences, Hogarth teaches the Giant what it means to be a hero, and together they discover the true meaning of friendship.

 'Souls can't die.........'

| | See all lascenara17's reviews (97)

Ted Hughes' cult novella was confined to the oblivion of sci-fi, being about two things that kill off ideas of anything original at a first glance: robots and aliens (well, space-dragon-thingies). That was until Brad Bird, future craftsman of Bond homage 'The Incredibles', picked up the book, snipped off the lurid second half and concentrated on the robot itself and its effect on the community at large. Then, in a true stroke of genius, the story was set in a time not only of goverment and public paranoia but also in an era when a new generation of young people were wishing and wanting bigger and more exciting things in their life.
This wonderful cartoon works both ways. The Giant is a fantastic creature, all retro-future stylings with hints of Asimov but with soulful, emotionally reflective eyes and a heart of gold. Voiced with aplomb by gravel-larynxed Vin Diesel the robot is the ultimate Jolly (metallic)-Green Giant.
The human cast are also warm and wittily characterised, from Jennifer Aniston's put-upon waitress 'mom' to Harry Connick Jr's shade-wearing, pseudo-artist beatnik 'Dean' (another subtle reference to adolescent embodiment in the 1950s....). Of course it's Eli Marienthal's Hogarth who pulls the most dramatic weight. He may be the brains to the Giant's brawns but he gets a worse fate come the end, having to watch his best friend die. In those last few words acres of emotion resonate in a way that occurs very rarely in cinema. But that's just one powerful moment in a film full of them.
The animation is simple but solid, and more realistic than most modern productions. And this proves having an A-list voice cast has nothing to do with greatness, if box-office success. This didn't do well anywhere and it's a real shame, it being one of the best animated films of all time and certainly one of the best of 1990s. Fun, funny and at a lithe running time this film has everything anyone could want, from obsessives to the parents being dragged in front of the TV, someone will find something that brings a smile to their face. And that's a beautiful thing.

 hope there is a sequel

A Brilliant film.
Certainly recommend this film, It is such a shame it wasn't advertised massively, the storyline is brilliant, set in 1950's Post-War paranoid America, another film to utilise the combination of 2D and 3D animation, loved it.
Very funny as well

 Just wonderful

Funny, exciting, sad, hopeful . . just about every emotion covered during this film. The styleof the animation is beautiful, just kept nice and simple and the perfect way to tell this story. The voice acting is fantastic coupled with the pacing of the film makes for a great experience for all ages.

 Fantastic

Years after I have first seen it and this film still remains my favourite animated movie of all time. It keeps you entranced from start to finish and the ending is incredible.
