This is arguably one of the best animated films of the late 90's. An instant classic! A must-see for anyone who can truly appreciate the ingenuity of an animated film.

Great new classic for children.

on 9/17/2012

My 2-1/2 year old loves this film. Because this is not really a film for such a young age, we always skip the somewhat violent part at the end which depicts the missile attack (sorry for the spoiler), but he is memorized by relationship and bond between the giant and the boy in the film and watches it over and over again. I have to say that I have enjoyed watching the film with him as well. Great animated film. Read More

Editors Note
Note Based on poet Ted Hughes' 1968 children's book, former SIMPSONS producer Brad Bird's adaptation proves to be a work of art the family can enjoy together--simple and visually captivating enough for kids and sharp and touching enough for adults. Hogarth is a young boy in 1950s Maine. When he finds a kind and very large robot (of unknown origin), a strong bond of friendship is formed between the two. It isn't long, however, until a government agent is on their trail, wanting to destory the robot. A beautifully rendered fable.
