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.

This touching parable derives much of its strength from a striking visual design and a welcome pacifist stance that sticks it to NRA nuts.

For parents tired of taking their kids to slick, superficial animated features, Warner Bros. has got a giant of a cartoon for you.
July 18, 2003
Eschewing song-and-dance numbers and cute animal sidekicks, the film's appeal comes from its winsome characters, its resonant story, and its evocative depiction of New England in the days of Sputnik and “duck and cover” drills.

a first-rate adventure, with plenty of humor and suspense...
May 20, 2003
This is a handsome piece of engaging animation from a studio other than Disney. That in itself is worth a look. The kids will love it.
