through the generations...

This is one of those movies that one can watch over and over. My seven year old has done just that...I have watched it a few times myself and I do not generally watch a movie more than once. This movie is timeless. My son enjoyed it so much that I purchased it for my grandsons, who are jsut a few years younger than my son. That should tell you something...it is one thing to buy a movie once, but it speaks volumes when you are willing to purchase it twice! You will not be disappointed.

Love it!

I am a mom to 3 kids ages 5-16 and I love this movie. I don't know what I will do when the kids leave and I won't have a reason to watch animation anymore. I love Hogarth's name for one and his interaction with the adults is very funny to me. Hogarth is wise beyond his years and shares some of that wisdom with the iron giant he finds in the woods. He is being raised by his mom so he is on his own a lot of the time but he makes good use of it by teaching the iron giant about his new surroundings and trying to find a place for him to be happy. There is also of course a bad guy but Hogarth handles him very well and you will just have to watch to see how it comes out. It is a story that warms your heart and also gives you a good laugh on the journey.
