2 – The Iron Giant (1999)

My Rating: 9/10

Synopsis: In this classic tale, a boy named Hogarth Hughes befriends a giant extra-terrestrial robot from the outer space and protects him against a government agent intent on destroying the innocent metal giant.

Never thought Brad Bird can pull off M:I-4 because his previous fares were of this kind. Ratatouille. The Incredibles. The Iron Giant. He ventured mostly in the realm of animation and in this feature, Brad Bird did an excellent job, he effectively delivered a film about conflicts of perception regarding a certain giant robot while exemplifying and promoting non-violence all throughout. All things considered, this film is a masterpiece in its time and proved to be timeless, as I only have watched it moments ago but felt the significance of the story and its weight. It’s amazing how a simple tale can be so fun to watch yet still can capture your critical mind.
