After crash landing off the coast of Maine, The Iron Giant (Vin Diesel) finds himself at a power plant, where he is rescued by Hogarth Hughes (Eli Marienthal). After discovering him, Hogarth practically adopts the giant and helps him evade the public and especially a nosy government agent, Kent Mansley (Christopher McDonald).
This movie was absolutely stunning. It holds a special place in my heart and is definitely a staple of my childhood. The 2-D animation style still holds up today and the music pairs beautifully. No place feels boring or misplaced and the pacing is great. The ending wraps up the whole story arc well and feels you wanting more! I would recommend this movie for grounded sci-fi lovers. This movie deserves a 5/5.
