The 10 Best Giant-Robot Movies

1. The Iron Giant

The best giant-robot film of all time is arguably Brad Bird’s The Iron Giant. This exciting, funny and emotionally resonant sci-fi tale took a while to catch on with audiences (who mostly ignored it upon its theatrical release in 1999), but it’s grown into one of the most beloved family films of the 1990s. Our favorite moment might be the one where Hogarth leads a prayer at the dinner table while the Giant’s mechanical hand runs roughshod through the house, but it’s just one great moment in a film filled with many of them. You could even make the point that The Iron Giant out-Supermans Man of Steel and it wouldn’t be that crazy a notion.
