Trivia:
When the Giant's hand is "watching" TV, the clip that was to be playing would have been the opening to "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color" (1954), but the filmmakers couldn't secure the rights, and substituted the Maypo commercial instead.See more »
Goofs:
Anachronisms: The nuclear-powered submarine USS Nautilus (SSN-571) is depicted as a fleet ballistic missile (FBM) submarine. However, the Nautilus was a torpedo-carrying attack submarine. Also, the Polaris FBM program was not operational until autumn 1960. Furthermore, the missile being fired is reminiscent of a UGM-73 Poseidon C3 missile, not fielded until 1972 on the Lafayette and James Madison-class SSBNs.See more »
Quotes:
General Rogard:That missile is targeted to the giant's current position! WHERE'S THE GIANT, MANSLEY?
Kent Mansley:Oooh... We can duck and cover! There's a fallout shelter not far from...
General Rogard:There's no way to survive this thing, you idiot!
Kent Mansley:You mean we're all going to...
General Rogard:To die, Mansley. For our country.
Kent Mansley:Screw our country! I WANT TO LIVE!

a masterpiece, plain and simple, 29 December 1999
Author: dpenny (dpenny@nf.sympatico.ca) from St. John's, Newfoundland

I'm 25 years old. I have no children. So why am I praising a 'kid's movie' which nobody saw? Because I have never seen a film pack the emotional wallop 'The Iron Giant' provided.

The film's plot is similar to 'E.T.' - a young boy meets an alien robot from outer space, who is stranded on earth, and runs afoul of paranoid government agents. Not to knock the Spielberg film, but what makes 'The Iron Giant' the better film is that the young boy is the teacher. It is he who has to teach the Giant about the beauty of life, the difference between good and evil, and choices we have to make. The Iron Giant, it turns out, is a weapon, who has to struggle against his own nature. The film has an obvious (and timely) gun control message, but its real message is about the choice we make when dealing with other people. We can use our powers for good or lash out at everyone around us.

I dare not give away the climax. All I will say is that it features a sacrifice absolutely breaktaking and emotionally shattering (albeit somewhat blunted by the ending). The animation is gorgeous, Michael Kamen's score is perfect, and the film beautifully evokes the 1950s.

Sadly, poor marketing kept audiences away in droves. All I can say is, to heck with the box office gross. Despite Warner's appearant desire to pretend the film never existed, the word is getting around about what a magical film this is, and I have no doubt it will join 'It's a Wonderful Life' as a film which bombed in theatres but became a classic over the years. See it now, so you can say you discovered it before everyone else did.
