Got to see "Iron Giant" here in Chicago on its opening day; we made it a studio field trip here at StarToons. Our personal reviews were all in the superlative. Nobody didn't think it was great.
Let's face it: Ted Hughes' story and Brad Bird's direction made this picture. The animation was awesome ... but nowhere near as tight nor as well acted as Disney's "Tarzan." But the sheer story-telling mastery and Bird's wonderful pacing are what will make this picture a timeless classic.
Nothing but kudos to WB for this effort: well chosen, well managed, well directed, and well executed.
