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.
Fresh: Remarkably unassuming, genuinely playful, and superbly executed, The Iron Giant towers over the cartoon landscape.
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.
Fresh: It is in the best tradition of animation: an ideal tale for children that offers a lot to adults as well.
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.
