The Iron Giant is not only the best animated feature to be released this summer, it's the single best film to hit our screens so far this year.

The Iron Giant has a great heart, and I loved its evocation of the days when good old Superman, as uncomplicated a superhero as ever existed, was the height of cool.

This wonderful Warner Bros version of Ted Hughes's The Iron Man is a first-class achievement in cartoon virtuosity that liberally borrows images from 1950s comic-book art and science-fiction movies to stunning effect.

The movie wears its social responsibility with pride, even if it doesn't always know how to put together a coherent public service announcement.

It is in the best tradition of animation: an ideal tale for children that offers a lot to adults as well.

Lest all of this sound gravely symbolic, be assured that the film is, before anything else, deliciously funny and deeply affecting. And beautiful, oh so beautiful, as a work of coherent art.

It's worth repeating the old complaint that animation isn't treated seriously enough, if only to point out what a shame it would be for The Iron Giant, one of the year's best films, to go overlooked.

a cool, charming uniquely American fable done in accessible yet intelligent mode, which makes it suitable for all members of the family.

The Iron Giant isn't a Cold War allegory so much as an Americana fairy tale.

Great animation, and a great title character will appeal to the kids, while the sharp wit, whacky antics, and kid-friendly messages will appeal to the adults.

A smart live-and-let-live parable, full of glancing, acute observations on all kinds of big subjects...that you can talk about with the kids for a long time to come.

Gentle, poignant and affecting animation that succeeds through understatement and showcases some highly impressive visual sequences.

This is enjoyable in part because of its flavorsome period ambience and its lively and satiric characters.

A cool, unique-looking animated feature (the Ike-era design elements make for great eye candy), director Brad Bird's tale of a small-town boy and his outer-space robot is hip and entertaining without pandering, or condescending, to the kiddie set.

| Original Score: 3.5/4
