The Iron Giant (quick movie review)

This is one of those movies that everybody loved but nobody went to see in the theater. The Iron Giant is the feature film directorial debut of Brad Bird (Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, The Incredibles – both great movies you should see, by the way) based on the book The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. The movie has stunning visuals, fluid animation, tons of laughs, an excellent story… everything is great and I will hear nothing negative about this film. Voice actors include Eli Marienthal (yeah, I don’t know who he is either, although I did sit through Mystery of the Batwoman, which was… OK, I guess…), Jennifer Aniston, Harry Connick, Jr., Vin Diesel (who has very little dialogue, but does a fine job at pushing humanity through the voice effects), Christopher McDonald and John Mahoney. The screenplay is witty and tight – I believe this is the sort of movie that actually has something for everyone: heart, comedy, action, drama… you name it.

Stop reading this and go watch The Iron Giant!
