When The Iron Giant arrived in theaters in 1999, it was hailed as an “instant classic” by Joe Morgenstern of The Wall Street Journal, and the world soon learned that another “giant” had arrived as well: filmmaker Brad Bird, who made his stunning directorial debut with this film and has gone on to win two Oscars, as well as worldwide acclaim for his work on both animated and live-action features. Winner of 9 Annie Awards, remastered and enhanced with two all-new scenes, The Iron Giant: Signature Edition is the tale of an unlikely friendship between an alien robot from outer space (voiced by Vin Diesel) and a rebellious boy named Hogarth (voiced by Eli Marienthal), his bedraggled mom (voiced by Jennifer Aniston), a paranoid government agent (voiced by Christopher McDonald), and a sympathetic beatnik (voiced by Harry Connick, Jr.) all conspire to turn Brad Bird’s The Iron Giant into a gigantic, out-of-this-world adventure.

I Grew up with this Film. One of my favorite so it wasn't hard to drop that amount on it. Everything in the box is good quality the figure is plastic but you can move the arms turn the head n move the waist. I was expecting the figure to be better then what it is but i don't regret buying it. It would be better if it was $50. The movie is a awesome movie of course if you haven't seen it i suggest you do.
BOTTOM LINE: One of the most amazing and touching animated motion pictures ever made. Timeless in its story, morals and heart. It will make you laugh, cheer and cry. Incredible stuff. You owe it to yourself to own this masterpiece of animation. A film that never loses it power to enchant & captivate, no matter how many times you've seen it. 5 STARS

Complications ensue when Hogarth & the Giant are beset upon by a relentless, utterly paranoid government agent.

This is an awesome movie, it's great all around for the entire family. This was a present for my husband for his birthday, he was thrilled; we pre-ordered it and received it in September. It's a movie that has been out for plenty of years, and when we found out about it's blu-ray release immediately we knew it was a must own. It was exactly what we expected, I won't give out any spoilers; but it's a great story with amazing characters. It has some special features that you can read about in the description, nothing out of the ordinary; our family was mainly in it for the blu ray feature. I'm a huge fan of animation and this was great for it's time, as I said I won't give out spoilers like everyone else; but it's really well made and anyone would enjoy it. We've made so much progress with animation throughout these last couple of years, but this is a piece that can still stand its ground; that's saying quite a lot. I would recommend this to everyone, you will not be disappointed; and...
