    I love this beautiful movie...I saw it for the first time, maybe 15 years ago now? Not that I appreciated it enough back then.

    About the last scene - I secretly love the warm, fuzzy feeling it gives me, and I think my multiple viewings would be much more difficult without it; but overall, I certainly have to agree with Steve. I was definitely uncomfortable with the way the "happy ending" seemed phoned in. Also, they end the movie right before the conflict that would result when the Giant inevitably returned to Rockwell. He'd probably be captured and experimented on by the government, right? Would his people come to retrieve him and finish the job? I'd argue the Giant's permanent death might actually be the best case scenario for everybody involved. At least it was his choice, and he accepted his fate with dignity.

    I also think the dream sequence isn't necessary. I saw the original cut first and I always liked how jarring the "battle mode" scene was out of nowhere. That's more a question of my opinion than fact, though. There are reasons to include it as well - I won't go into them here, but I will acknowledge them. It's only the ending that unfortunately weakens an otherwise expertly-presented narrative.

    I am so glad that The Iron Giant is not a musical, and I do agree that the last 15 seconds in the end should have been a post credit scene.

    Wasn't a big fan.. probably cause I still had fond memories of the book.. and this is.. erm.. loosely inspired? well.. it was loosely inspired by the musical based on the book.. ..and since its meant to be based on a book, I can't shake the knowledge of the book to really judge It as it's own product.. which it probably could and SHOULD have been..

    I'd suggest watching some war movies, (techically you have already watched some) like Hacksaw Ridge or The Unknown Soldier (The Unknown Soldier a finnish movie so it's also known as Tuntematon Sotilas) they are live action so i dont know if thats the stuff youd like to watch. Hacksaw Ridge is also very brutal and gory at some points so yeeah..

    I'd say the Giant coming back isn't bad... I mean... Plenty of characters circumvent death when their character's point is to die. Big Hero 6 is an example. Heero has to let go of Baymax physically, meaning he has to let go of his brother emotionally. Then Baymax comes back. Then the argument stands, nope, Heero didn't learn to let go at all. He just held on still.
    The Iron Giant ends with the Giant alone. He's not with Hogarth. He's across the planet, picking himself back up. Hogarth even sends the screw on its way instead of having the Giant come back for it.
    We don't see Hogarth ever meet the Giant again. At all.

    A lot of disney movies have are based on much darker n grimmer stories. I know this isn't Disney, but much like them some things in the story are changed. Though unlike disney films, it doesn't make everything into a "do what you want world, void of death and consequence". It did however still follow the trend of happy/positive ending mainly because a childs mind can only process so much about life and death, and doesn't feel the need to depress the audience. I don't think the ending was about having it both ways, and i can give it a pass on the fact that the iron giant wasn't a human, so the rules are different anyway.

    UNDERATED GEM?! not only was iron giant a major character featured recently in ready player one, but the original film was rated 8/10 on imdb, 96% fresh on rotten tomatoes and 85% on metacritic. just because the movie did shit in the box office on release, doesn't make it underated, or a hidden gem. I mean, for fuck sakes...

    I liked the ending because, despite what people say about it "undoing" or "cheapening" the sacrifice (this very idea stems from a fundamental misunderstanding of what a sacrifice really is), it actually adds a very important contextual lesson to it:
    A sacrifice isn't about what _you_ lose, it's about what you're giving to _someone else:_ Hope. A sacrifice is _both_ the act of and the willingness to put someone or something before yourself and your needs, regardless of what happens to you by doing so.
    If you saw a person about the get hit by a car and jump out to push them out of the way, knowing full well that you won't be able to get to safety as well, but the driver manages stop the car just before hitting you... Does that suddenly make you less brave? Does the end result of you _not_ getting hit by the car belittle what you were willing to do for another person? No, it doesn't.
    Let's say there's a couple trapped in a house fire, and one person used their body to shield the other from the flames, granting them some small comfort in the inferno... But they both die as the house collapses on them. Does the fact that they both died make the first persons's act completely meaningless? No, it doesn't.
    If a person who is unemployed and struggling financially sees a homeless person and decides to buy them a meal, then the next day finds out they've been hired for a full-time job. Since they only sacrificed part of their finances, and now that they have a job their finances won't be a problem... Does the selfless act of kindness and hope they performed the day before now mean nothing? No, it still means something.

    This film was a risk, a gamble. It's a treasure now, but animation in America has been trying to shake the stigma of "kid's stuff" for decades. This film, had it been a success, would've been a flagship to a new franchise. Those last few seconds left the door open to sequels.
    They could've done a number of things with the Giant trying to reunite with the boy, having the rest of the robots show up in some form of invasion, and maybe the Giant repelling the other robots only to realize it can't be with Hogarth because the Giant is radioactive from the bomb. There is action, tragedy, character, and the opportunity for merchandise.
    But, the film was considered a failure and they pulled the plug.

    This is one of my favorite movies of all time along with Requiem For a Dream, but there's something very dark that i have with this movie.
    The Giant. I like him very much, but...
    He gave me the worst nightmares that i've had in my life, he gave me phobia to giant things like buildings, airplanes, etc.
    I still love him though, and i love the movie too.

    Steve Reviews, it bombed because WB's last animated movie before Iron Giant failed, so WB didn't have faith in this when it was pitched. They didn't advertise it enough and that's why it bombed.

    I do think that the message about death not always being bad is still a key message in the movie, and, although the ending might feel tacked on in order to appeal to younger audiences, the extended cut (which I hadn't seen until today) can justify the giant's survival pretty well. We see an explosion of a planet, as well as entire cities being vaporized. For the giant to survive events like this, and to bring down vast civilizations with ease, of course he'd be able to withstand a relatively small nuclear bomb. So, yes, he survives, as his nature would justify. But we never really see a resolution to the recovery of his memories, of his nature, as a weapon of destruction.
    I think the giant comes to terms with his newfound memories, adjusts to existence on a planet with abundant life and diversity, and creates a new identity, a new heroic persona, for himself. Even as more clues to his previous existence pop up in his memories and mechanics, and even as he realizes his immense power and potentially immortal lifespan, and even as he tosses and turns in the nightmares of death that haunt him, he remains steadfast in his will to be a kind, helpful, smiling giant and goes on to protect the lives of the people he may have initially been sent to destroy. Despite being the strongest being on the planet, I like to think he continues to choose to be more like the good humans he meets, despite being from a completely different world. He chose, and, after the end of the movie, continues to choose to be a Superman on Earth.
    That's just what I think anyway. I think the message about death is important, but what really impacted me more was what the movie said about identity and free will. I ate that ending up as a kid, beaming back at the giant as the score climaxed, and it still makes me happy.
