    Yes, I enjoyed it 100%! I thought the iron giant was wicked, he became evil and he was packed with weaponary! My favourite part was when the military attacked the iron giant and he became evil and war took part. I didn’t like it when the iron giant bloow-up in space. I’d recommend it to people of all ages.

    its called the iron giant and he eats metal, it looks like hes going to be a villain but hes a hero.the funny bit is he thinks hes superman.the sad bit is when you think hes dead, but hes really alive.

    The film was about an iron giant who disrupted a boy’s life and started a war between the council and the the iron giant and the boy. The film made me think about the world, and i think the moral is that we can all live in peace even if we are all different we can still like each other.

    I loved the film 100%. It really showed me how outsiders can really be accepted, no matter what or who they are.

    It was called the iron giant i did not like the bit where the giant had to leave but i liked the bit where he came, and came back to life some of it was wicked and some of it was sad and happy but i think they could of been together a bit more most of it was excellent. From bonnie.

    The Iron Giant was a sad film when he was bombed. I really liked all the characters especially the Inspector and the Iron Giant.

  • Tommy T

    I enjoyed the story as it was action packed and the iron giant is by far the best character. My favourite part was when the army were shooting at the iron giant. I least liked it when the iron giant flew up into space to get the missile because it made me feel sad. Yes I would recommend this film to others it is a good watch.
