(Review originally written at 20 March 2005)

"The Iron Giant" really is a wonderful movie. It's a different kind of animated movie and although it has some comical moments the main essence of the movie are on the emotions and atmosphere. It can be describes as "E.T." with an Iron giant.

The movie really perfectly captures the 50's atmosphere. The animations are not really among the best of the last couple of years but they look more than good enough.

The story is heartwarming and the ending really is superb!

Jennifer Aniston is really good and very believable as a mother but Harry Connick Jr. really was the one who stole the show. His character really is my favorite of the movie and his sense of humor is spot on!

Wonderful animated movie and also one with a message. A treat for young and old.
