This is the story of a nine-year-old boy named Hogarth Hughes who makes friends with an innocent alien giant robot that came from outer space.
Meanwhile, a paranoid U. Government agent named Kent Mansley arrives in town, determined to destroy the giant at all costs.
It's up to Hogarth to protect him by keeping him at Dean McCoppin's place in the junkyard. I'm 25 years old.
I have no children. So why am I praising a 'kid's movie' which nobody saw? Because I have never seen a film pack the emotional wallop 'The Iron Giant' provided.
The film's plot is similar to 'E. Not to knock the Spielberg film, but what makes 'The Iron Giant' the better film is that the young boy is the teacher.
It is he who has to teach the Giant about the beauty of life, the difference between good and evil, and choices we have to make. The Iron Giant, it turns out, is a weapon, who has to struggle against his own nature.
The film has an obvious and timely gun control message, but its real message is about the choice we make when dealing with other people. We can use our powers for good or lash out at everyone around us.
I dare not give away the climax. All I will say is that it features a sacrifice absolutely breaktaking and emotionally shattering albeit somewhat blunted by the ending.
The animation is gorgeous, Michael Kamen's score is perfect, and the film beautifully evokes the s.
Sadly, poor marketing kept audiences away in droves. All I can say is, to heck with the box office gross.
Despite Warner's appearant desire to pretend the film never existed, the word is getting around about what a magical film this is, and I have no doubt it will join 'It's a Wonderful Life' as a film which bombed in theatres but became a classic over the years.

It is based on the novel The Iron Man by Ted Hughes which was published in the United States as The Iron Giant and was scripted by Tim McCanlies from a story treatment by Bird.
The film stars the voices of Vin Diesel voicing the titular character , Eli Marienthal , Jennifer Aniston , Harry Connick Jr. Set during the Cold War in , the film centers on a young boy named Hogarth Hughes, who discovers and befriends a gigantic metallic robot who fell from outer space.
With the help of a beatnik artist named Dean McCoppin, Hogarth attempts to prevent the U. The film's development began in as a musical with the involvement of The Who 's Pete Townshend , though the project took root once Bird signed on as director and hired McCanlies to write the screenplay in The film was animated using traditional animation , with computer-generated imagery used to animate the titular character and other effects.
The understaffed crew of the film completed it with half of the time and budget of other animated features. Michael Kamen composed the film's score, which was performed by the Czech Philharmonic.
The Iron Giant premiered at Mann's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles on July 31, , and was released worldwide on August 6. Despite this, the film was praised for its story, animation, characters, the portrayal of the title character and the voice performances of Aniston, Connick Jr.
The film was nominated for several awards, winning nine Annie Awards out of 15 nominations. Through home video releases and television syndication, the film gathered a cult following and is widely regarded as a modern animated classic.
During the Cold War , shortly after the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1 in October , an object from space crashes in the ocean just off the coast of Maine and then enters the forest near the town of Rockwell.
The following night, nine-year-old Hogarth Hughes investigates and finds the object, a foot tall alien robot attempting to eat the transmission lines of an electrical substation.
Hogarth eventually befriends the Giant, finding him docile and curious. When he eats railroad tracks in the path of an oncoming train, the train collides with him and derails; Hogarth leads the Giant away from the area, discovering that he can self-repair.
While there, Hogarth shows the Giant comic books chronicling the adventures of Superman. The incidents lead a xenophobic U. He suspects Hogarth's involvement after talking with him and his widowed mother Annie Hogarth's father was a U.
Air Force pilot who died during the Korean War , and rents a room in their house to keep an eye on him. Hogarth evades Mansley and leads the Giant to a junkyard owned by beatnik artist Dean McCoppin, who reluctantly agrees to keep him.
Hogarth enjoys his time with the Giant, but is compelled to explain "death" to the Giant after he witnesses hunters killing a deer. That night, Hogarth is interrogated by Mansley when he discovers evidence of the Giant after finding a photo of him next to Hogarth and brings a U.
Army contingent led by General Shannon Rogard to the scrapyard to prove the Giant's existence, but Dean having been warned by Hogarth earlier tricks them by pretending that the Giant is one of his art pieces.
Upset by the apparent false alarm, Rogard prepares to leave with his forces after berating Mansley for his actions.
Hogarth then continues to have fun with the Giant by playing with a toy gun, but inadvertently activates the Giant's defensive system; Dean yells at him for nearly killing Hogarth, and the saddened Giant runs away with Hogarth giving chase.
Dean quickly realizes that the Giant was only acting in self-defense and catches up to Hogarth as they follow the Giant.
The Giant saves two boys falling from a roof when he arrives, winning over the townspeople. Mansley spots the Giant in the town while leaving Rockwell, and stops the Army, sending them to attack the Giant after he has picked up Hogarth, forcing the two to flee together.
They initially evade the military by using the Giant's flight system, but the Giant is then shot down and crashes to the ground.
Hogarth is knocked unconscious, but the Giant, thinking that Hogarth is dead, completely gives in to his defensive system in a fit of rage and grief and attacks the military in retaliation, transforming into a war machine and making its way back to Rockwell.
Mansley convinces Rogard to prepare a nuclear missile launch from the USS Nautilus , as conventional weapons prove to be ineffective.
Hogarth awakens and returns in time to calm the Giant while Dean clarifies the situation to Rogard. The General is ready to stand down when Mansley impulsively orders the missile launch, causing the missile to head towards Rockwell, where it will destroy the town and its population upon impact.
Mansley attempts to escape, but the Giant stops him, and Rogard has him arrested. In order to save the town, the Giant bids farewell to Hogarth and flies off to intercept the missile.
As he soars directly into the path of the missile, the Giant remembers Hogarth's words "You are who you choose to be", smiles contentedly and says "Superman" as he collides with the weapon.
The missile explodes in the atmosphere, saving Rockwell, its population, and the military forces nearby, but seemingly at the cost of the Giant himself, leaving Hogarth devastated.
Months later, a memorial of the Giant stands in Rockwell. Dean and Annie begin a relationship. Hogarth is given a package from Rogard, containing a screw from the Giant which is the only remnant found.
That night, Hogarth finds the screw trying to move on its own and, remembering the Giant's ability to self-repair, happily allows the screw to leave.
The screw joins many other parts as they converge on the Giant's head on the Langjökull glacier in Iceland , and the Giant smiles as he begins reassembling himself.
In addition, Ollie Johnston and Frank Thomas voice the train's engineer and fireman, briefly seen near the start of the film.
Johnston and Thomas, who were animators and members of Disney's Nine Old Men , were cited by Bird as inspirations for his career, which he honored by incorporating their voices and likenesses and perhaps even their first names, due to fact that the engineer, who resembles Johnson, said to the other one, who resembles Thomas, his first name Frank into the film.
The origins of the film lie in the book The Iron Man , by poet Ted Hughes , who wrote the novel for his children to comfort them in the wake of their mother Sylvia Plath 's suicide.
In the s, rock musician Pete Townshend chose to adapt the book for a concept album ; it was released as The Iron Man: A Musical in He created a story outline and character designs but Bluth passed on the project.
In late , while developing the project on its way through, the studio saw the film as a perfect vehicle for Brad Bird , who at the time was working for Turner Feature Animation developing Ray Gunn.
Animation studio to direct The Iron Giant. The Maine setting looks Norman Rockwell idyllic on the outside, but inside everything is just about to boil over; everyone was scared of the bomb, the Russians, Sputnik — even rock and roll.
This clenched Ward Cleaver smile masking fear which is really what the Kent character was all about. It was the perfect environment to drop a foot-tall robot into.
Ted Hughes, the original story's author, died before the film's release. His daughter, Frieda Hughes , did see the finished film on his behalf and loved it.
Pete Townshend, who this project originally started with and who stayed on as the film's executive producer, enjoyed the final film as well.
Tim McCanlies was hired to write the script, though Bird was somewhat displeased with having another writer on board, as he wanted to write the screenplay himself.
McCanlies decided to have a brief scene displaying his survival, stating, "You can't kill E. McCanlies was given a three-month schedule to complete a script, and it was by way of the film's tight schedule that Warner Bros.
In the letter, Hughes stated, "I want to tell you how much I like what Brad Bird has done. Bird combined his knowledge from his years in television to direct his first feature.
He credited his time working on Family Dog as essential to team-building, and his tenure on The Simpsons as an example of working under strict deadlines.
It's almost as if the audience has the remote and they're going to change channels," he commented at the time. Newton's first assignment on staff involved being asked by Bird to create a film within a film to reflect the "hygiene-type movies that everyone saw when the bomb scare was happening.
The financial failure of Warner's previous animated effort, Quest for Camelot , which made the studio reconsider animated films, helped shape The Iron Giant ' s production considerably.
Although the production was watched closely, Bird commented "They did leave us alone if we kept it in control and showed them we were producing the film responsibly and getting it done on time and doing stuff that was good.
They hoped to accurately reflect its culture down to the minutiae; "we shot store fronts, barns, forests, homes, home interiors, diners, every detail we could, including the bark on trees," said production designer Mark Whiting.
Bird stuck to elaborate scene planning, such as detailed animatics , to make sure there were no budgetary concerns.
Bird was eager to use the then-nascent software, as it allowed for storyboard to contain indications of camera moves. The software became essential to that team—dubbed "Macro" early on—to help the studio grasp story reels for the film.
These also allowed Bird to better understand what the film required from an editing perspective. In the end, he was proud of the way the film was developed, noting that "We could imagine the pace and the unfolding of our film accurately with a relatively small expenditure of resources.
Lead animator Bazley suggested this led to a sense of camaraderie among the crew, who were unified in their mission to create a good film.
It was pivotal; there was an undeniable feeling that we were really tapping into something," he recalled. He opted to give the film's animators portions to animate entirely, rather than the standard process of animating one character, in a throwback to the way Disney's first features were created.
He made sure to spread out the work on scenes between experienced and younger animators, noting, "You overburden your strongest people and underburden the others [if you let your top talent monopolize the best assignments].
The art of Norman Rockwell , Edward Hopper and N. Wyeth inspired the design. Whiting strove for colors both evocative of the time period in which the film is set and also representative of its emotional tone; for example, Hogarth's room is designed to reflect his "youth and sense of wonder.
Animators studied Chuck Jones , Hank Ketcham , Al Hirschfeld and Disney films from that era, such as Dalmatians , for inspiration in the film's animation.
The score for the film was composed and conducted by Michael Kamen , making it the only film directed by Bird not to be scored by his future collaborator, Michael Giacchino.
Bird's original temp score, "a collection of Bernard Herrmann cues from '50s and '60s sci-fi films," initially scared Kamen.
Bird opted to produce The Iron Giant in widescreen —specifically the wide 2. He felt it was appropriate to use the format, as many films from the late s were produced in such widescreen formats.
Bird later recalled that he clashed with executives who wished to add characters, such as a sidekick dog, set the film in the present day, and include a soundtrack of hip hop.
Family Entertainment banner, the logo for which featured mascot Bugs Bunny in a tuxedo as seen in the film's teaser trailer. Bird was against this for a multitude of reasons, and eventually got confirmation that executives Bob Daley and Terry Semel agreed.
Instead, Bird and his team developed another version of the logo to resemble the classic studio logo in a circle, famously employed in Looney Tunes shorts.
The Iron Giant primarily deals with the concept of existentialism , as well as the nature of humanity. This is exemplified by Dean's statement that "You are who you choose to be", which Hogarth later relays to the Giant.
When he began work on the film, Bird was in the midst of coping with the death of his sister, Susan, who was shot and killed by her estranged husband.
In researching its source material, he learned that Hughes wrote The Iron Man as a means of comforting his children after his wife, Sylvia Plath , committed suicide , specifically through the metaphor of the title character being able to re-assemble itself after being damaged.
These experiences formed the basis of Bird's pitch to Warner Bros. And that plays out for the rest of your life," adding that films can provide viewers with a sense of right and wrong, and expressed a wish that The Iron Giant would "make us feel like we're all part of humanity [which] is something we need to feel.
He doesn't make the Army pay. Certainly you risk having your hip credentials taken away if you want to evoke anything sad or genuinely heartfelt.
The Iron Giant was a commercial failure during its theatrical release; consensus among critics was that its failure was, in part, due to poor promotion from Warner Bros.
This was largely attributable to the reception of Quest for Camelot ; after its release, Warner would not give Bird and his team a release date for their film until April Bird remembered that the studio produced only one teaser poster for the film, which became its eventual poster.
They nearly delayed the film by several months to better prepare. After criticism that it mounted an ineffective marketing campaign for its theatrical release, Warner Bros.
The Iron Giant was released on VHS and DVD on November 23, ,  with a Laserdisc release following on December 6.
All of the initial widescreen home video releases were in 1. Cartoon Network showed the film continuously for 24 consecutive hours in the early s for such holidays as the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving.
The Special Edition DVD was released on November 16, But they want a bare-bones disc. I want better," and encouraged fans to send tweets to Warner Home Video in favor of a Special Edition Blu-ray of the film.
The Iron Giant received positive reviews from critics. The website's critics consensus reads, "The endearing Iron Giant tackles ambitious topics and complex human relationships with a steady hand and beautifully animated direction from Brad Bird.
Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times called it "straight-arrow and subversive, [and] made with simplicity as well as sophistication," writing, "it feels like a classic even though it's just out of the box.
Both Hollywood trade publications were positive: David Hunter of The Hollywood Reporter predicted it to be a sleeper hit and called it "outstanding,"  while Lael Loewenstein of Variety called it "a visually appealing, well-crafted film [ That is, until I saw The Iron Giant.
The Iron Giant opened at Mann's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles on July 31, , with a special ceremony preceding the screening in which a concrete slab bearing the title character's footprint was commemorated.
It opened in 2, theaters in the U. Stanley of Brandweek cited it as an example of how media tie-ins were now essential to guaranteeing a film's success.

The Iron Giant boasts a great cast of varied voice talent, and they brilliantly bring these characters to life.

The film is tailored to anyone that enjoys a fun, entertaining picture that is beautiful to look at and is engaging from start to finish. This is a great movie, one that should be enjoyed by anyone that loves a solid animated feature.
