Description

Heart-warming Pixar animated tale about a robot who accidentally discovers the way to save planet Earth. 700 years after humanity has left Earth, WALL-E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) fills his days collecting rubbish, and anything else that takes his fancy, trying to fend off the boredom of his lot. But unknowingly, the tiny tube-eyed robot has discovered a secret that could make the once beautiful planet habitable again, enabling humankind to return. One day, Eve, a search robot, lands on Earth in a cloud of dust, and WALL-E is smitten. When she realises the importance of his find, she sets out to tell the remaining humans, eager to let them know the planet can be saved. But WALL-E, after centuries of being alone, can't bear to see her go, and hitches a ride through the cosmos on an adventure his memory banks will never forget.

Synopsis
Even for Pixar, this might be a first: an animated film that contains not only a fully realized world as photorealistic as it is teeming with wonder, but also the Gargantuan themes and visuals of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, the kind of stripped-down sad-clown pathos reserved for classic Buster Keaton comedies, and one of the most moving love stories in a long time. Director Andrew Stanton kicked up the visual acuity of an already-stellar Pixar Studios in 2003 with his reflective, refractive, color-shimmery realization of FINDING NEMO's oceanic world, which genuinely felt as though it spanned the entire earth. Now, with WALL-E, Stanton replaces an estranged journeyer of an apprehensively fishy disposition with a curious and love-struck robotic one, allowing the quest for eternal love to extend from a desolate, dust-covered, palpably polluted future Earth and into an even more mysterious abyss: the far reaches of outer space.

With virtually no dialogue, WALL-E's neatly contained, eerily vaudevillian first act introduces the tragic robot of the title. Whirring amid dilapidated skyscrapers and equally tall compacted trash heaps, he's the last living thing on Earth (aside from a little cockroach friend). WALL-E has developed a tender and inquisitive personality doing what he was built to do--allocate and dispose of human waste--day in and day out for the past 700 years simply because no one turned him off when the human race left the now-hostile planet. Soon though, the directive-oriented automaton Eve comes crashing into WALL-E's life from above, immediately becoming the object of his infatuation. At the drop of a hat, the little guy follows her back into the dangerous unknown, where the sight of two robots gliding through the cosmic ether, dancing via fire-extinguisher propulsion, joins the many memorable moments of a deceptively simple, expansively romantic story.

"The best science-fiction movie in years....Hugely entertaining, wonderfully well drawn..."
Roger Ebert (5 Dec 2008, )
Empire
5 stars out of 5 -- "WALL-E is a character of genius, as wondrous an example of the potential of animation as you will ever see."
Olly Richards (1 Aug 2008, 42)
Entertainment Weekly
"[P]uckishly inventive, altogether marvelous....It whisks you to a new world, then makes that world every inch our own." -- Grade: A
Owen Gleiberman (11 Jul 2008, p.48)
Los Angeles Times
"Pixar's latest is wonderful and full of wonder....Daring and traditional, groundbreaking and familiar, apocalyptic and sentimental, WALL-E gains strengths from embracing contradictions..."
Kenneth Turan (27 Jun 2008, )
New York Times
"WALL-E surely breaks new ground....It is also a disarmingly sweet and simple love story, Chaplinesque in its emotional purity."
A. O. Scott (27 Jun 2008, )
Premiere
"Just watching WALL-E putter around earth by himself, crushing trash into neat cubes and listening to his homemade tape of the HELLO, DOLLY! soundtrack is mesmerizing."
Jenni Miller (26 Jun 2008, )
Rolling Stone
4 stars out of 4 -- "Animation art at its highest level....You leave WALL-E with a feeling of the rarest kind: that you've just enjoyed a close encounter with an enduring classic."
Peter Travers (7 Aug 2008, p.99)
Sight and Sound
"[E]xceptionally good. In fact it's one of Pixar's best films....The film's joy, though, is the way WALL-E's situation develops in an organic, lyrical, musical way."
Andrew Osmond (1 Aug 2008, p.81)
USA Today
4 stars out of 4 -- "[E]ngaging and visually stunning....WALL-E is inventive, poignant and funny in its tale of a spunky robot whose name stands for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth Class."
Claudia Puig (27 Jun 2008, )
