Overview

The lovable animated feature The Iron Giant is given wonderful treatment by Warner Bros. in its DVD release. The film is presented in both widescreen and standard versions, and boasts animated interactive menus. Biographies and filmographies are provided for the eclectic cast, as well as for director Brad Bird and the original book's author Ted Hughes (the book was named The Iron Man). Also included is a section called "Alien Encounters," where viewers can find a 22-minute Making of Iron Giant documentary (hosted by Vin Diesel, who provides the giant's voice), as well as a theatrical trailer and a two-minute music video (basically comprised of scenes from the film) for the song "Cha-Hua-Hua" by Eddie Platt. The one shortcoming of the disc is that subtitles are available only in English; otherwise, it's a great package and wholly satisfying for fans of this endearing and overlooked film.

Very entertaining for small ones and for parents. My 2 year old daughter has probably watched it 30 times. Even for the smaller children the visual images will keep there attention. Even at age 2 my daughter did takeaway that we can 'choose who we want to be' and that 'guns are dangerous'. We also bought a copy for my 8 year old nephew who also loves the movie. Parents can enjoy it as well!

One of the most heartwarming, hilarious, and fun animated movies made in years, this movie was the victim of one of Warner Bros. worst marketing blunders ever. Most people were barely aware of it but those of us that saw it came out of the theatre either speechless or jabbering like excited 10 year olds. This story about a boy and a giant robot that doesn't remember what he's supposed to be, is the perfect example of what an animated film should be like. A wonderful adventure, crazy antics, and a story of true friendship. Fun for the whole family!

I'm not big on cartoons anymore, since i have reached my later teenage years. This movie is still a favorite of mine however, and i really look forward to purchasing the DVD. Any child with a sense of humor and imagination will love this movie until they become older and pass it on to their children. It's a timeless classic that hasn't yet been known to the world as one. I really hope everyone takes the chance to get this great DVD about an alien giant who no longer remembers where he is from, and has befriended a young boy who shows him the ropes of the Earth in the late 1950's.

It's June 2003 and The Iron Giant is an incredible movie. It teaches so many things like love, emotion, kindness, friendships, etc. Mostly, I love that it teaches guns are not safe. I have 4 yrs boy/girl twins and it's hard in todays world to find a movie that teaches violence is not good. They both loved the movie so much! Please share this heartfelt movie with your child. It's a must see with your family!!!

This movie goes beyond discussing good and bad, weapons or no-weapons. It strikes at the very heart human nature: are we as a race/species able to control our feelings and opinions just long enough to look at the larger picture to understand what is really important? YES that is a very heavy question found in a children's movie! But the movie is well worth it - regardless if you watch it for entertainment or a discussion of ethics. Side Commentary: Get a group of adults together and watch this along with the movie Ice Age (yes, another children's movie). I think I can promise a discussion like you have never heard before will emerge from the group.
