Steve Reviews: The Iron Giant

  • Published on Jan 18, 2019
  • This week on Steve Reviews I look at the beloved classic, The Iron Giant. This is actually a film I had never got round to seeing beforehand, but I had seen it getting requested many times, so decided to see for myself what all the fuss was about....

    The Iron Giant is my all time favorite movie. I’ve been watching it since I was probably 5 years old and I will never get tired of it, it’s just so good and happy 😭🤖
    Edit: 10:38 this HAS to be a deleted scene, I’ve never ever ever seen this part of the movie before where the giant dreams...I am shocked wtf this is brand new to me and I’ve been watching the movie for 14 years 🤯

    I don;t know if you've already done it but might you consider reviewing I Robot? I feel like it's very unpopular despite it's quality because of the super vague trailers and competitions

    my brain had completely erased that part of the giant coming back to life
    i swear, after all these years, i had thought it just ended with the small screw flashing or whatever and that's it
    i'm kinda disappointed now lmfao

    Fun fact: There is a deleted scene called "The Iron Giant's Dream".
    It's really interesting

    Edit: Okay it's not a deleted scene, it's a new scene. Added about 17 year later!

    Can someone please tell me if agent Ken got fired or at least in jail since he almost killed so many people's lives. Cuz that would be awesome to see that douchebag rot in the movie.

    This movie was awful. I hated this movie specifically because Cartoon Network Aired it over and over AGAIN for 24 hrs 3 days straight. No other shows came on. It was a nightmare.

    The mom didn't believe him because she comes home to a kid who clearly stayed up late watching scary movies (lying to her earlier saying he wouldn't) and then he's wandering the woods ranting about a robot. Clearly something he just saw in the movie and let his imagination get away with, HE saw the destruction and trail through the trees, SHE didn't.

    I liked the happy ending as a child, and so I can't not love it now for nostalgia's sake.

    This movie has literally my age, it was one of my favorite movies as a kid, (if not MY favorite), saw it many times, loved it. during that time i was interested in the topic of robots with soul/humanity in them, and it fitted perfectly.

    I remember the trailers for this movie being horrible. I think that's why so few people saw it in theaters. The trailers made it look like a generic ET knockoff, with really hokey jokes.

    Just because the giants sacrifice is a sad heroic act of love & bravery doesn't mean the film has to end on a quieter note. Sure, it might have been forced in by Warner Bros, but I like it. The phrase "souls don't die" is key here. We don't know everything about the giants background or if he is a living being or created with advanced technology developed into its system. Personally, I love an ending that leaves you with more questions than answers.

    Hard to believe you know the term Fireman in rail terminology, most people I know confuse Engineer (Driver) for Conductor.

    The robot isn’t really made out of iron. Clearly the Iron Giant is made out of a foreign metal so dense that it can survive tank blasts. He also survived what would have fried any tech with the power of a generator. Of course the Iron Giant could survive an atom bomb. It’s not Iron. No one could possibly tell what he’s made of.

    • Haku chan

      Well, just like the iron man suit isn't made of iron neither, at least in the cinematic universe, stark describes the composition of the armor being made of a gold-titanium alloy despite the people comments calling him iron man, it suggest a more symbolical purpose than a practical one, (iron wouldn't be aerodynamically viable, for example), i think this is the same case regarding the iron giant, It isn't so much about whether it is iron or not, but what it represents. When you have to reffer to something that is made out of metal and is very resilient to damage the most common material in wich you could think, is iron, because is available practically for everyone and is more accesible than other rarer metals like titanium, so, it`s obvius that most of the people could identify those properties to that specifc type of metal than any other else first.
      So , in summary, i agree with you that being alien and all it probably isn't made of iron, people just like to call it iron because it's kind of easier/convenient to reffer.

    The dream sequence was added in the anniversary rerelease and I think it takes away from the film. It shows you what he's potentially capable of before the actual freak out scene. In the original, his freak out is so surprising because that's the only view we get of it.

    The ending of the movie actually links to the talk the Giant has with Hogarth about Death. Yes the scene shows that death isn’t always a bad thing. But it also explains that the Giant has a soul and that souls don’t die. The Giant surviving at the end is a representation of that message.
