  1. A movie that reminds me of this is “The Iron Giant”, which I’ve been watching over and over with my kids. A giant, indestructible, deadly robot lands on earth in 1957. The Giant’s original intent seems to be to destroy humanity.

    The Iron Giant is injured on landing, and forgets what it is and why it is there. A young boy befriends the Giant, protecting him and teaching him that he can choose to be a hero, or not. When the giant regains his memory and purpose, he chooses instead to be a hero, sacrificing himself to save the town.

    I don’t mind that my kids want to watch this movie every day. I hope they learn (as their mother has) that they get to choose who they will be.
