Steve Reviews: The Iron Giant

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....

    Every time I see the giant go into his enraged state I get chills. The way they drew it, and the vocal delivery by Diesel of the giant’s gut wrenching rage is awe inspiring. A true representation of what happens when you take away someone’s reason to be a man vs a monster.

    I disagree, I feel the 'happy' ending fits the Superman theme of the story. The Iron Giant takes the role of the last son of Krypton in many of the scenes, wearing the S, saving children from falling to their deaths, posing like Superman when he flies in the air, and for the climax sacrificing himself to save the entire town as he chooses who he is, "Superman". The final shot is perfect for this Man of Steel as Superman is also known for ending his films with a smile to the camera.

    Some of the "flaws" or "weird things" you think the movie has, seem to be really easy to explain. Why didn't the mom think anything of the destroyed forest? There was a big ass storm one day before, a lot of things can be damaged, trees can fall, it's normal. What a coincidence that the kid's house was the nearest to the train crash? Dude, the kid was going home, the giant was following him, they were going to that house.

    Hello there. I am here to ruin the movie. First of all, a general would never have the authority to order a nuclear strike. Never. Secondly, due to the fact that this missile appears to be a Polaris A3, it's not the missile itself that impacts the target but one or more conical warheads that are dropped from low orbit. Thirdly, it is not a button, it is a trigger. E) in the movie the missile was clearly launched by a submarine that was sitting offshore, however the United States did not finish and fully commission a submarine capable of carrying and launching nuclear missiles until 1959, With the Polaris A3 not being put into service until 1964. And last but not least, a ballistic missile submarine, otherwise known as a Boomer these days, would not rig for red in the missile control center during battle stations missile. Rig for red only happens in control while at periscope depth. Mansley would likely have ended up on death row and that general would very likely have been forced into retirement. An unsurvivable level of fallout would have killed off the townsfolk as well. That is, if the heat from the blast didn't fry them where they stood. That missile's payload was, after all, equivalent to quite a few Hiroshima's. As many as 39 Hiroshima's, in fact, depending on the number of warheads on the missile at the time. Except that's actually not how it works at all and there would not be any type of nuclear blast based on an early impact with the missile itself. If anything the solid rocket propellant would have exploded, resulting in a powerful explosion, but a conventional one.

    Tbh it's kinda logical why the robot still lived When it was damage due to the impact with the train it rebuilt itself, The army can't logically beat it because it just fixes it's wounds, and the explosion really wouldn't affect it unless he's completely deactivated so when he went kaboom, he didn't really died since he reactivated himself controling his loosen parts with a smile representing that it's back

    They gave away the ending, really. Not just him wanting to be a hero, that death isn't always a bad thing, but that he could put himself back together. We had no idea that he'd survive the blast, but we knew he could easily fall apart and reassemble. I always thought they were going to make a sequel about why he was sent there, what with the flashbacks of his previous life of war on other planets, maybe his creators send more iron giants to Earth, and he becomes our Iron Savior... but its a great film on its own.

    Wow. I do respect your opinion and I really like your other reviews, but here it just seems to me that you really missed the point in places. Dean is not a creep (and I don't say it just because I think that he's hot), and what were you expecting him to do, leave a kid with a giant machine completely unsupervised, or leave him outside during the cold night, just because? You do have a point with him suddenly freaking out at the Giant, but that actually was explained via deleted scene, basically, he saw the peace of Giant's dream where he remembered being not exactly super friendly on his TV, but after he saw how to hurt and guilty he felt after almost zapping Hogarth he came back to his senses. If you wanna creep, Kent fits better to this description as he constantly acts inappropriately towards... well actually anybody. About Annie, hypothetical situation, you come back after a long shift, find your kid on the street and he tells you about gigantic alien eating metal, would you believe him? Yes, there was damage there, but a robot from outer space is the last examination that would come to my mind and I'm a b*tch who believes in witchcraft. When it comes to the ending, seriously real life is depressing enough so I'll take a sweet twist at the end, thank you very much. Also if the ending was thrown there in the last moment, then why it was earlier established that Giant can put himself back together? This was a foreshadowing as well, besides this would be like killing Superman, you can do it and it can be done very well and have a huge impact... but there's no way in hell that he will stay dead. The last point this movie was still made with kids in mind, it was mature and treated thair audience seriously, which I always love, but have fun explaining why a nice robot died to your bawling 5-year-old. Also, to examples you gave, Bamby's mom and Mufasa were murdered, how in the hell it could be presented positively? Also, also "The Lion King" was specifically about dealing with grief and traumatic past, Mufasa was always within Simba and his spirit made his presence known guiding his son, the whole concept of Circle of Life presenting death as something that is a part of life... I don't really understand how one can miss that. I love "Animals of Farthing Woods", I was raised on them (and I totally am a well-adjusted individual- haha, sarcasm) but everything has to be it.

    I read the book as a kid, found it in a library. And frankly after seeing the movie I just did not care as much of it, since the book had a far more interesting story than just being anti-war propaganda. In the book the giant actually battles a giant sun-dragon, after befriending the kid and winning over humans, to save Earth, and basically defeats him in a contest and proves to him that violence is not the answer. The movie I always felt was way too preachy, and I did not care for the usual "army battles giant monster" twist. The villain was also just a cartoonish idiot, who the fuck orders a nuclear strike on the place HE is in???

    I agree that the ending should have been done in a more vague fashion, like seeing the part begin to flash just before the cut to credits. It would have left room for some deep questions, like "Did the Giant survive, or does the flashing part represent his 'soul' living on?" At the same time it would leave the possibility of a sequel open without being such an obvious cliffhanger.

    Dude, you lost me at Ratatouille. That film has as many layers as an onion. It can be recontexualized as a commentary for the cinema, as the predicted cautionary tale of the direction of Disney as a company, as reflection of artists in general, and it's admirable also for its use of imagery to represent flavor. I LOVE also its ACCURATE depiction of cooking as an art. It's one of the best edutaining films out there. How many films do you know of that teach real facts in its narrative?

    People honestly feel they got cheated with the ending? Seeing that goofy smile brought even MORE tears to my eyes! Even though I know it'll be a happy ending, my heart still breaks every time he brings that line back. "You stay. I go. No following". I suppose I could understand the argument if his regen power came out of nowhere, but it doesn't. Most viewers probably forgot about it after the train scene (I know I did). Being reminded in the end made that scene even more powerful! Maybe it's part of movie critic culture these days to want something more abstract, making anything slightly familiar seem "overdone". But in my book, this is a kids movie with some extremely mature themes and believable characters. The ending doesn't take away from the giant's sacrifice, it mends a broken heart. If anything it made the movie a pleasure to watch that leaves you with a good feeling, instead of a pit in your stomach.

    Let's face this guys. The Iron Giant is no longer a forgotten underrated film. Now, it's has become basically an animated phenomenon. The Iron Giant has received universal critical praise, it has sold millions of copies on DVD, VHS and Blu-Ray, it has been referenced in countless TV-shows and movies(most notably Ready Player One) and has been considered as one of the greatest animated films of all time, alongside Spirited Away and The Lion King.

    In regards to the ending... I understand where you’re coming from, though I don’t entirely agree. The Iron Giant being able to put itself back together was very clearly established, and if it was originally an alien machine of war then it would likely be more than capable of shrugging off a nuke with no lasting damage. And while death not being an entirely bad thing is presented as a theme, it’s not the central theme of the movie, so while the ending may be a bit of an ass-pull, I can’t say I dislike it. At worst, The Iron Giant did the last second “he’s alive” reveal a hell of a lot better than Frankenweanie did.
