  • 1999
  • US
  • 1h 26min

  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Jennifer Aniston, Harry Connick Jr, Vin Diesel, Eli Marienthal, Christopher McDonald, John Mahoney

Animated film adaptation of Ted Hughes' classic children's story about a boy who befriends a 50ft robot from outer space. The action is transported from rural England to small-town America in the late 1950s. The resulting film is a fast-moving thrillfest featuring bongo-beating beatniks, a great rockabilly soundtrack and explosive destruction on a grand scale. This being a kids film, through, it's violence with a conscience.
