About the Movie

Something humongous is among us! A young boy rescues a huge robot which has rocketed to earth from space - and tries to protect the genial giant from a nosy government agent and the military. A captivating animated feature that's part metal, part magic and all heart.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A smart live-and-let-live parable, full of glancing, acute observations on all kinds of big subjects...that you can talk about with the kids for a long time to come. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: This is not exactly standard children's fare, but kids (and their parents) should be smitten by its wit and wisdom. – David Ansen, Newsweek, Aug 12, 2014

Fresh: The Iron Giant is not only the best animated feature to be released this summer, it's the single best film to hit our screens so far this year. – Paul Tatara,, Aug 4, 2013

Fresh: It is in the best tradition of animation: an ideal tale for children that offers a lot to adults as well. – Ted Anthony, Associated Press, Aug 4, 2013

Best Movie


i really liked this movie

i used to watch it all the time when i was a kid.

My Favorite Animated Film

I hope this film does not go unnoticed by iTunes shoppers, because is one of the best. Brad Bird (you know, Ratatouille and The Incredibles) wrote and directed it, so you know it is an amazing movie. I seriously doubt if he has ever made a bad one. With the Iron Giant, Brad takes standard animation to a whole other level. As Roper put it: "It works as a lot of animation does, to make you forget from time to time that these are moving drawings, because the story and the characters are so compelling." I completely agree! If you enjoyed films like Titan A.E., Ratatouille and War of the Worlds; this film is for you.
