The Iron Giant


Everything was very serene in a little town called Rockwell, until buildings, tractors and metal fixtures are vandalized by something that seems to be taking a bite out of their property. These bizarre incidents prompt a nine-year-old boy to investigate one night when his television antenna goes missing and he discovers big footprints leading into the woods. He discovers that a mysterious robot from outer space has landed on earth and they became friends.
The government became aware of the giant, and their agents wanted to destroy it...

Ian Douglas: Basically a kiddies version of King Kong. The animation is more comic-book than what we are used to from the likes of Disney. The kiddies should enjoy it.

John Harrison (22): This is a truly brilliant animated feature. Ian, to say that your point of view is misguided would be an understatement.
