[good point]
The message of the work is universal, it is the most important in the world, it comes convincingly.

[Bad point]
The last part would have been necessary to not make it a so-called bad-end, but personally it was better to tell the story that the soul will not die even if the robot dies like a conversation between a boy and a giant.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
I recently watch a couple of adults to enjoy, but at that time I was wondering if this animation would be enjoyable for adults, but was that children enjoyable? I think the iron giant is an animation that children can enjoy.
In the beginning 50 minutes I was keeping a sense of tension, from there to speed to the end all the way speeding up and running through. Giant in battle mode is cool. From a nuclear submarine to a parting scene, I went crying though the solid would be solid. It was a good movie.

As the evaluation of other people was, it was contents of the royal road or solid development.
I felt it classically and I could not enjoy it much.
I also did not like drawing so much and I could not empathize.
However, I think that it is a work that echoes in the middle for the people I like.

Very clean, good work with good meaning.
I was excited about the robot.

I also agree with the opinion that adults may enjoy more than children.
It was a simple and good work. "Is good.

Robot which made original work of Ted Hughes original.
I wonder if "Doraemon's Iron Man Giant Corps" is based on Hughes' work as well.

The giant is pretty, the runaway figure is coolest and cool.
If you are watching a tactical Doraemon movie, you can not help feeling a sense of deceit, but it is easy to understand, it can be impressed.

I do not have any major dissatisfaction, but I wish I could have mentioned more about where the giant came from, its origin, identity and so on.

I can not help it because I misunderstood mistakes in settings that I can not overlook by keeping all the stories, paintings, etc.

At the beginning, since the launch of Sputnik, there is a rocket used for launch which is known to be 1957 and intercontinental ballistic missiles are the same technology and the successful launch of a satellite has already been successful in the development of nuclear weapons by the Soviet Union In response to that it shows that it became possible to add nuclear attacks anywhere on the earth, at that time America was lagging in missile technology rather than the enemy Soviet Union, possibly leading to fatal consequences There is a controversy that the controversy happened, this is called a missile gap, or Sputnik shock, but this work is a scare of unknown things of the United States at the time that its background is important, The fear of having other people (possibly enemies?), Even though they do not have that background, so let's convince the attack against the iron giant To be

Until halfway, the story was typical but too bad, I thought it was not bad Until a missile was launched from a submarine "I have a submarine launch ballistic missile! Well, I do not have a missile gap, so Iron Giant What was the fear to you !! It was ruined! "
After the story of the work was denied all the story, no matter what story was developed, it did not come into my head at all, of course, the shock was too big, neither Pikri nor emotion was moved

There was no submarine launch ballistic missile in the United States at that time in 1957, but there is no problem even if it is SF, but it is a big problem if it threatens the foundation of the story It is a military mania and a science fictional person who is also SF, If you have seen a lot of space depiction, but there is a necessity for lies, if you do not get involved in the main line, if it is not important in genre, if you do not care about it separately I'm just happy, unless it is too bad, Although it is not, this work is different depiction of gimmick's depiction, but I do not know another example of ruining the story itself so far

There are no conspicuous drawbacks other than those mentioned above, but its faults are too serious, bad

Director Brad Bird. Warner. Brothers distribution. Exchanging the minds of an unidentified ironman and a boy, drawing in the American society of the 1950s, 2D & 3D animation

Dynamic expression of waves droplets at the beginning. An emotionally rich character that moves with full animation (especially Hogarth and Manslie are pleasant). Cut connection keeping the continuity of the screen. The adorable performance of the 3D ironman. Smart mechanical design. Long length of panorama. The color of the background and the drawing of the detail. Ironman's handwriting wind 3D and background.Harmony of people's 2D. I think that it is a key sentence (especially, "Duck and Cover" (lie, head hanged) is a key sentence.

First of all, I am gradually attaching to inorganic robots. I guess this is a good performance. And chase with Manslie. This is pleasant. And finally came! Robo of anger burst explosion !!! Poor, but cool This is it. And if you thought 'This is the end at last ...', Hogarth 's proclamation explosion. "It is bad to kill.Guns kill." (It's bad to kill, the gun kills.) "You don`t have to be the gun." (You do not have to be a gun.) "You are who you choose "(You only have to be yourself). I was knocked down. Cried. I regretted oneself who was innocent and pleased with the built-in armored ironmen. But even this does not end. This was a terrible place of this story, is not it ~

The story seems to be Spielberg style Jubnair like "ET" (American country town, dreamy boy, mysterious organization). It is similar to "Nobita and the Ironman Army" in that the giant robot comes at home, in that the boy is caught up in the adult world while not knowing, "Mobile Suit Gundam 0080 war in the pocket" I was thrilled by that alone. In the genre called the gigantic robot with a heart, there are Mr. Mitsuaki Yokoyama and Tezuka Tezuka (I do not know but there was such an owner in America, too) and it is my most favorite genre. Is this really purely for children? Aside from the question of ???? aside, it's amazingly fun and amazing !!!
As it is a movie that has meaning to be set in the United States, subtitle version is recommended

Although it is personal subjectivity, he asserts that it is one of the best masterpieces of all animated films.
Interaction between wit unique to animation which makes the era of "Tom and Jerry" ahead of time and a heterogeneous existence reminiscent of the former Spielberg work.
Two things, "nuclear missiles" and "battle weapons from outer space" are mixed in the American countryside where they should have become peaceful after the end of the war, and the adults and the children's feuds over it.
The hero who is absent from the father being studied and being bullied by the skipping class, the robot losing memory while being the strongest weapon, soldier who wields the state power for career advancement etc ... etc ... Simple contrast composition and complexity Realistic elements are interwoven in good balance.
It is remarkable when comparing the comical animation in the water play scene and the overwhelming power in the battle scene, but it is interesting only when it is animation that it is summarizing the complicated contrast composition without discomfort.

Director later Mr Inclusive made Brad Bird.
Iron Giant said that production cost was small and it was hard to work, but the completion of the work is much higher than Mr Incrementable.
At the time of theatrical release at the time of the dawn of animation work using CGI, the iron giant is effectively using CG. Although it is an analog-like visual as a whole, CG is used without discomfort, contributing to raising the completeness of the image.

The last of the movie is not ended with tears but a state that each one (children and adults) grows a little is drawn.
This work may be a work that can be enjoyed by the adult generation whose lacrimal glands loose to the standby bye of Tom and Jerry generation rather than animation for children.

[good point]
Drawing, music, tempo. It was more interesting than Disney or Pixie's animation. It is also the same director Mr.Incredible and Remy's restaurant, but the setting itself is not innovative, but the way to show the tempo is good anyway.

[Bad point]
I think it was a big mistake to finally revive the giant. Because that death, there was a meaning and theme in the story because there was sacrifice, if it was immortal, it makes no sense.

Not only here but it seems to be popular on yahoo ....

"Boy" of an easy-to-understand character hero and the exchange with "robot" like a baby who does not even know even what he is is, stirring of a strawy "dirty adult" Although drawn and drawn together, was there anything particularly new or something? It was honest question.

While listening to the hero who was a voice whose nose was clogged, Kent who was the "dirty adult" was a character that embodied the dark side of humans anyway. (Bitter smile)

To adhere to the giant, I thought that he was leaving so much as he was eating loudly from the great military in the Dean's camouflage, threatening the threat of watching the hero's feet,
After that, I did not even think about it afterwards, and I was fired up to a nuclear missile in order to stop the giant who finally lost insanity. After thinking that I noticed the seriousness of the matter at last,
"I do not want to die something because of a fucking country," even if you try to escape by stupidity ... Ah ... no, surely the Japanese version of CV, Mr. Yoshitada Otsuka is a so-called " Hatred "
I think that I was expressing well, but I said that it was not a good role, Kent was too good to be good. Speaking of Mr. Otsuka, the Tow Tables of Souten route was also unfortunately not suitable, but if you want to put a trendy celebrity as a voice actor, you should do something like this. Even though it is not good to appoint a famous voice actor anything. I think that Mr. Noriko Hidaka who is the mother role and Mr. Kazuhiko Inoue who is Dean's role were performing well in the usual way ........

Despite such Sutemonda, I think it was okay to have the hust of being hoped, but as I repeatedly found it was like the one I saw with other animations and manga, unfortunately what I can appeal is It was not there. I guess that Kent 's "the other side of life" teacher remained an impression in a bad way than that. (Bitter smile)
Unfortunately the evaluation is "very bad" in my standards.

Painting is good.
The thematic nature and the message nature are solid.
Good drama.

[Bad point]
Especially nothing.

It's such a sad, messy work.
The scene that makes the boy and the robot's heart come in are very good.
I like the other than Miyazaki animation.
I can cry frankly.

Evaluation is "highest".

[Good point] A story with a certain message behind the comedy. Easy to understand character.

[Bad point] Short time.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
95 points.
It was a long time ago because it was an anime of the past. However, when I looked at it the other day, various messages were transmitted. Hogarth finds the giant's head with a dent (dent). Because of this I lost my memory .... It is human beings. But when we found a dead deer and a gun on the side, the giant became a weapon (return?), Finally giant who thought "dead" when we looked at fainted hogarth transformed into a complete weapon. At that time, when the dent was corrected, "Is this true form? I could not help thinking. Actions taken by Hogarth who have noticed here .... It is not possible without trust and courage. And that last ... Even if it is said that other people 's opportunisticism, I seemed to cry. It is a masterpiece.

An American animated film. American animation thought that if it is original which is not with original like Disney type, it will be split into whether it is usually a rude trash or a whole Japanese animation pakuri, but this work is American.
The taste was demonstrated with a good feeling, and there was something stunning.
The background of the person is simple, the mechanical design is a retro tiny, and the development is plain, but depiction of heartwarming exchange of robot and boy is skillful. Pull in with the admiration for a boy's robot, catch a glimpse of a human ego, boil it with the power of a robot, there is a modest impression in the last. They were expressed in an easy-to-understand manner within a short period of time.
I think that it is one of the few exceptions recommended by others in American animation.

Scales fell out of the eyes as if American animation had such a work!
There are characters of stereotypes or it is a solid development,
It was a rice cake that was exciting and exciting.
Also, where the commander is going to attack nuclear weapons too much,
Sarcastic against the Cold War era has taken advantage of handling nuclear weapons lightly.
Even so, although there is only a round eyeball and a mouth of a single line, the richness of the expression of the iron giant.

Like an iron giant in the play, apparent appearance is hard to get stuck,
It is a very good work when I go out with each other.

First, how to show it. Direction that giant looks like giant really.
Scenes trying to get their hands through windows, scenes that assimilate and hide in signs,
It is interesting that there are jokes that made use of huge bodies in places.
How to express facial expression using movement of eyes, mouth, neck is also excellent.
The joint is soft, in particular, the movement of the neck is good.

The stage is Maine state. Is not it Pittsburgh?
The era is 1957. I draw casual war.
In a single place, the scene screaming Japanese and jumping into a pond is questionable "Banzai!"
Saipan island hulk crush. Will not you buy this?
I dare not know whether I lose the losing Japanese army?
Iron gauge house. Bear, Mr. Dean.
I have it everywhere. A quirky person.
I wanted you to show me a little bit of a person named "Art".
... Anyway, it is a story like "ET"?
There seems to be other works with similar concepts, but this is satisfied with this.

I showed it in English class at junior high school. Therefore it is full English version.
Pay attention to spoilers.

This is the best made with American-made animation I know.
Speaking from my taste, I like it more than Disney.

Even if America is the stage, it is a good old USA in the 1970s.
The car also decked side by side, the train is also chic. So simple mechanical designs like the Tetsu 28 No. are also cleverly set to look natural.
In the beginning I recall somehow old hero animation, but the scene of encounter between robot and boys is opposite to that in Japan,
Despite the appearance of the robot, the depiction like the "enemy of mankind" has been done.
However, when you notice, the boy and the robot make friends who let you communicate.

If it is Japanese animation, it is only "existence of" control weapon "which is riding or harnessing with a remote control when saying huge robot,
This place is fluffy, American animation. It is fresh to draw boarding as a thing with intention as one "machine" rather than rushing on board.

At one moment I was playing in the space war game, but at the moment I saw a boy 's beam gun toy, the robot' s eyes changed,
Put out the built-in killing weapons and startle boys.
Finally known to the United States government its existence, to introduce all kinds of military strength. However, the US Army who loses without being able to become a robot that has built up numerous unknown weapons. I will finish firing a nuclear missile at last by boiling the work.
The robot that woke up with the words of a boy who was a friend will explode the nucleus while targeting itself as a target. The town where the boy lives is escaped from extinction, and peace has returned.
A few years later, robot parts are delivered as memories. And the parts rolled naturally somewhere.
"I will meet again someday."

After all it is that this movie is fresh, after all, drawing "war", "weapons", "nucleus" from a calm viewpoint, never beautifying.
As for the American movie, like the "Air Force One" "Independence Day", many viewpoints "Japan is strong!",
Iron Giant is a portrayal not made in such live-action movies.This theme is abundantly included,
In various ways it may be said that it does not seem to be a video work of the United States (I can not say anything because I have not seen the Hollywood movie so far ...).

I think that it was very meaningful for me to have this movie showed in class.
I would like to review again soon.

Whether the theme is heavy or not, will not Japanese animation (late night, regardless of children) be offered a more persuasive work incorporating contemporary social problems a little more?
I do not think that light things are bad, but are not too overly light pieces too lightly?

When seeing it is by all means alone, I can cry In public release initially, I did not see it as pacri from "Giant Gog" from the stutti ... ...

A masterpiece of the highest trembling. Really amazing work.
<There is spoiler>

- A mysterious giant iron giant that fell from the sky Giant, a boy, a story of a bond with Hogarth ... a simple and orthodox story.
However, it was fun.
Sometimes characters that are full of individuality were stiffing aside, but again I was fascinated by the friendship between Giant and Hogarth.
What is the answer given by the giant to Hogarth 's saying "You can become yourself I want to be?" The final stage of this shock seems quite problematic.

- A word of amazing.
The scene where the giant flying in the air in the late stage, the scene which turns into a murder weapon and rage is no longer impressed.

Voice actor.
Noriko Hidaka, Kazuhiko Inoue, Yoshitada Otsuka, Masaru Ikeda and others were luxurious.
More than anything, Daisuke Rosato was good as a giant role.

last scene.
- I think that it was good for such an end.
"I will see you again one day"
I was touched by thinking so suggested.

I thought that American animated cartoon can not compete with Japanese animation now, but I saw this work and realized that the idea is wrong! Contrary to my first expectation, this animation is wonderful in content Well, I liked it very much.

The suddenly flying object from the other side of the universe is actually a huge robot made of metal, the robot appears in some forest in the US and eats iron pole poles and cars without eyes, but by chance I became acquainted with the boy who witnessed Houmansu,
It was a story to the middle stage that the robot realized that it would not be dangerous to eat iron artifacts eventually.
The setting of the world view of this animation is America in the 1950 's and 1960' s, is not it, is not it? ... I felt like I was watching it. Although the unique name of a huge iron robot does not appear in the play, as the title "Iron Giant"
I guess it is OK, maybe. So after that, I write a giant iron robot as an iron giant,
Iron, giant is an appearance (this is on purpose, but) Iron with an old-fashioned retro design.
The movement of the giant is very real and fast so I felt a bit eerous as I was watching it. At first it feels very uncomfortable if you are familiar with Japanese animated TV made with Japanese movies with smooth movement and trees of background as well as characters. But the movement of the character and visual beauty are distinctive and gradually became likable, but ........
Character design of this animation is totally different from Japanese animation with feeling such as American made anime indeed.
However, it reflects fresh on the contrary.

Iron.Giant seems to be unable to move unless you continue to eat steel buildings and vehicles, and at first it is hidden in the warehouse of Hogans' home at the beginning so as not to be found by the surrounding people, so Hogans knows Although he will take him to the scrap artist Dean's home, of course Dean refuses! However, Hawgan's persuasion finally broke and finally got an iron and giant on the condition of only one night, but that promise eventually was being rebelled It was. Hogans is a nice guy, but he is not a well-behaved child who always protects his promise with a mischievous child. However, Dean who took out the troubles was also a bit of a strange man and Iron Giant used it for his own scrap art production. But,
Playing with the gun of a toy playing It looks at the hogans, the defense function automatically works and the iron that fires the beam I change my mind when I see the giant ....... Iron, a government official who is tracking the way the giant is traveling Kent. Although Mansley was a villain and a bad guy in this animation, villain characters appearing in American animation are mostly Kent, like guys like Mansley I feel that. Kent. Mansley crashed into the home of Hogans in order to locate the way of the iron giant, knows where the iron giant is, but Horgans and Dean rushed behind Mansley and rushed with Mansley and his report Iron, who realized that he was a disturbant, I realized that I was a nuisance, but since the giant moved to an urban area, at last the existence was bald to people and the army was ironed.If the giant landed, the sea started attacking from the sky at the same time! But, there was a dead scene of a grand iron attack, a giant 's total attack version, and that was outraged by that. Also, Iron and Giant can fly the sky ~!
That was truly a masterpiece. Just like an iron giant seemed like a perfectly superhero. Actually Iron Giant thought that he was a superman, but he showed us the cartoon magazine that Hogans had ... ... Iron, the total attack version of the giant, or when the defense function is fully rotated, it changes to such a weird and terrible shape ...... That then, even with the latest equipment of the US military, the teeth do not stand at all Yes. However, Kent who is silly and insufficient, Mantle's folly finally seems to be blown away from the nuclear missile from the submarine, but the city is about to be blown away, but the iron who regained its sanity giant is a missile to save the people of the city far beyond He rose to the rocket jet and finally attacked the missile and bombed it suicide! But it is not over with this ...! I think that this animation ends with a tragedy, actually a happy end is prepared Although it is being done,
I am looking forward to seeing it. This animation was a wonderful workmanship betraying my expectation.
I think that it is a masterpiece of animation movies.

Speaking of huge robots, I will do it in Japanese arts, but it is a work I was wondering how to cook this motif Hollywood.
In conclusion, although tribute smell of Japanese animation etc is considerable, it is quite well digested. It does not come out of the framework of children's work, but it is well organized.

There are elements of antinuclear as well, but it is somewhat of a good thing to make consciousness not to come around here. Changes to weapon mode are pretty cool, and the last is like an atom. I could not go to where I could cry, but I enjoyed it quite a while.

Incidentally, Watasu has a Mook book that explains this animation, but when reading this, the officials in Japan have an atmosphere called a mitter, which is a pretty good robot animation. But after all this work, there was never been made like Japanese robot animation. I feel lonely like being happy.
