The Iron Giant 1999

A giant machine falls to Earth and befriends a boy in a small Maine town.


Something huge is on the horizon. Hogarth Hughes just rescued an enormous robot that fell from the stars to Earth. Now young Hogarth has one very big friend and an even bigger problem: how do you keep a 50-foot-tall, steel-eating (junkyard cars are especially tasty) giant a secret? It's even harder when a nosey government agent arrives in town to hunt down the "alien invader" and the combined land, sea and air might of the U.S. military is sent to demolish the giant. The result: an incredible adventure that's part metal, part magic, all heart.

Some scenes may scare very young children

  • Oldish Warners Bros. animation of the E.T. theme basically. Stricly for kids. I got it out based on the comments, I should have read the ones where they stated how much their 6/7 year olds loved it. Drat!

  • Beautiful, sad, and magical story of friendship and kindness. 5 stars.

  • Great little animated story.

  • This is hands-down my favorite animated film. Brad Bird is a genius.

  • Really fun family movie - directed by Brad Bird of Pixar fame - MUST SEE for all lovers of classic animation.
