Movie Review The Iron Giant

This movie is a classic but not a lot of people know about it. It is about how a giant robot from another planet comes to Earth. A little boy befriends the giant and teaches it to speak. But the government are after it. The setting is during the cold war in the 1950s in a small little town. The boy tries to hide the giant from a man from the CIA. He then meets a man who lets the giant eat scrap from the dump. It also has some anti war symbol. The giant is actually a death weapon but he only fights back when he sees a gun. In the end the CIA member then decides to call in a nuke. He then realizes that the town will be destroyed and everyone will die. The boy snaps the giant out of a war trance saying “You don’t have to be a weapon.” Spoiler The giant sacrifices itself so that the people can live. He dies while saying “Superman.” It is very sad and will make you cry. But in the end he gets his own statue. But also in the end you see his hand crawling towards his body. I would give this movie a 9 out of 10.Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 2.31.07 PM
