"Heart and tenderness are rare in cartoon movies. But in an age of frenetic children's fare, the new animated adventure The Iron Giant dares to show a lot of both, and it comes up a winner."- Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"One of the best films of the year thus far."- F. X. Feeney, L.A. Weekly
"One of the best children's movies in years. Spunky, inventive and filled with life and wonder."- Shawn Levy, Portland Oregonian
"Both a step back and a step forward from the trends of modern animation, it feels like a classic even though it's just out of the box."- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"An animated tale equipped with heart, humor, blazing action and not a sappy song in earshot."- Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune
"Not just a cute romp but an involving story that has something to say."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
