A good movie

Way before becoming a major player with Pixar and even becoming a successful action movie director with the Mission Impossible franchise, Brad Bird started his career with this little seen animated gem. Since then, it has reached a decent cult following but when it was released, it was unfortunately barely seen, even myself I saw it much later when it was broadcasted on TV. It is one of the hand-... read more

Nope, not good.
The same giant: Laputa
The same story: Transformers

it's just a bad combination of both...

the animation was well done though.

Brad Bird has directed two Pixar films; The Incredibles and Ratatouille. Both of these are big favorites of mine. Browsing through films, The Iron Giant caught my eye. I could only hope that I enjoyed this film as much as I did Ratatouille or The Incredibles. The verdict is that the film wasn't was good as either Pixar films, but is more than exceptional entertainment. In fact, this is one of the ... read more

In this animated adaptation of Ted Hughes' Cold War fable, a giant alien robot (Vin Diesel) crash-lands near the small town of Rockwell, Maine, in 1957. Exploring the area, a local 9-year-old boy, Hogarth, discovers the robot, and soon forms an unlikely friendship with him. When a paranoid government agent, Kent Mansley, becomes determined to destroy the robot, Hogarth and beatnik Dean McCoppin (Harry Connick Jr.) must do what they can to save the misunderstood machine.

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1036 movies items)

" It wasn’t a big hit, when it was in theatres, but VHS sales and rentals helped to garner a wider appreciation. That and it’s a heart warming story, about a boy and his robot, with great animation as well. Bonus: It was also, the film that introduced us to Vin Diesel."

Outstanding on all levels!

“The Iron Giant was a beautiful, funny and touching movie, that is one of the best non-Disney animated movies I have seen along with The Prince of Egypt, The Secret of NIMH, Watership Down and Castle of Cagliostro. There wasn't a single thing I hated about the movie, for me it was outstanding on every level. The animation was absolutely gorgeous, with stunning colourful backgrounds and brilliant character animation especially on the Iron Giant himself. The music by Michael Kamen was consistently excellent, and never overpowered the story. In fact at times it even enhanced the drama. And the film has a beautiful message not to mention a sweet story. The characters were delightful, Hogarth isn't annoying at all and the Iron Giant isn't scary in the slightest. Strictly speaking he has to be on” read more

Lindsay's Top 11 Favorite Films (Detailed Version) (11 movies items)

""One of my favorite plot archetypes is the 'A Boy and his X' or girl as we'll in a minute. It's probably a result of watching ET like 500 times between the ages of 5 and 11. Uh, this movie. I don't know if I would say it's a more sophisticated version of ET but it's definitely one that's more tied in with its history. And it's also the movie that sunk Warner-Bros Animation." (Lindsay sarcastically claps) The Iron Giant "I've seen criticism against the political undertones where they use "
