• Brad Bird was in part inspired to make The Iron
Giant (1999) as a memorial to his sister Susan,
who died at the hands of her husband by gun
violence. His pitch was this: "What if a gun had a
soul, and didn't want to be a gun?"

    • I'm extremely pro gun and also enjoyed this movie. It didn't seem anti gun to me in the way today's libtards want. Seemed more anti evil than anything else. Nobody wants bad people to shoot good people. That's the take away I got from it.

    • You guys are fucking idiots. This man made a masterpiece, and dedicated it to his murdered sister, and you're insulting him because he foesn't like guns. Because his sister was shot. The movie says nothing about gun control, and yet you feel the need to shit all over this guy for no reason.

    • Y’all are taking this the wrong way. I’ve studied this film. The suggestion is that guns are used by bad people to kill. But what would the gun do if it could choose? It’s not blaming guns. In the film, aliens create the giant to kill humans. But it decides, instead, to be “Superman.”

    • For those of you who don't get it- in a deleted scene, the Iron Giant remembers where he came from. A literal army of other Iron Giants all blasting an alien civilization. But because he had forgotten this and learned to feel human emotions, he didn't want to destroy earth.
