WALL·E

WALL·E

WALL·E

The year is 2800. After hundreds of lonely years doing what he was built for, WALL-E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE.

EVE comes to realise that WALL-E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet's future, and races back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home). Meanwhile, WALL-E chases EVE across the galaxy.

WALL-E is voiced by Ben Burtt, the man who gave R2D2 his distinctive sound.

The first 40 minutes or so of Wall-E -- in which barely any dialogue is spoken, and almost no human figures appear on screen -- is a cinematic poem of such wit and beauty that its darker implications may take a while to sink in.

What a rich, strange and intriguing picture this is; a wintry Cassandra in the guise of a pearl-bright summer blockbuster.

In the moment, it's intermittently transcendent, heartrending and beautiful ... and busy, repetitious and boring.

When it works, it really works, but it's debatable whether its target audience will really enjoy anything more than the nifty robots. Which is fine, too. Robots are pretty cool.

Unlikely as it might seem, the story of two star-crossed robots delivers a cartoon classic.

The visual design of Wall-E is arguably Pixar's best. Stanton, who wrote the script with Jim Reardon from a story he concocted with Peter Docter, creates two fantastically imaginative, breathtakingly lit worlds.

To call WALL•E Pixar's best film would potentially denigrate films that deserve no scorn. But this is their most ambitious undertaking since "Toy Story" and storytelling of such charm and visual wit that it can stand proudly alongside the studio’s best. Absolute heaven.

Pixar masterpiece. The greatest animated science fiction love story ever told. Beautiful, charming and perfect. WALL-E the robot is so adorable and cute. I'm glad this movie exists. Grade: A+

What an absoulete Gem of a movie that for the first part of the film there is no speaking at all the story is told by music and the wonderful animation and is the story of a robot all alone apart from his friend or pet the coakroach is looking for love and in doing so helps bring mankind back to planet earth

interesting and fun but not my idea of a great movie. Absurd premise and a too sentimental story even for this Disney/Pixar fan.

Wall-E is beautiful to watch, and has an absorbing feel to it that few animated films have pulled off before. It only takes a little while to get over the Luddite doomsayer plot, but once you forget about the effect the film will have on indoctrinating youngsters into a lifetime of envirundamentalism, you can sit back and appreciate great jokes, magical...

If I was a kid, I'd would be absolutely awestruck by Wall-E. It's one of those films that, for a kid, would be slightly bewildering - just a bit beyond them - which are the films that hold mystery and stick in the mind. Highly recommended.

I stand by my earlier comment - to release Wall-E in September is one of the worst marketing decisions ever made. Whoever came up with that idea should be put up against a wall and.... HOWEVER! I was lucky enough to see Wall-E last night and it was FABULOUS! Wait to see it in the cinema. Even if you download it now go and see it in September....
