  • Summary: What if mankind had to leave Earth, and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off? After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, Wall-E discovers a new purpose in life when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. EVE comes to realize 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. Meanwhile, WALL-E chases eve across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most exciting and imaginative comedy adventures ever brought to the big screen. Joining WALL-E on his fantastic journey across a universe of never-before-imagined visions of the future is a hilarious cast of characters including a pet cockroach, and a heroic team of malfunctioning misfit robots.

  1. 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.
  2. Mixing Chaplinesque delicacy with the architectural grandeur of a Stanley Kubrick film, director Andrew Stanton recycles film history and makes something fresh and accessible from it without pandering to a young audience.
  3. Reviewed by: John Anderson
    The idea that a company in the business of mainstream entertainment would make something as creative, substantial and cautionary as WALL-E has to raise your hopes for humanity.
  4. 100
    A charming, hilarious robot love story aimed at the entire family.
  5. Reviewed by: Bob Mondello
    The first hour of Wall-E is a crazily inventive, deliriously engaging and almost wordless silent comedy of the sort that Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton used to make.
  6. 88
    Succeeds at being three things at once: an enthralling animated film, a visual wonderment and a decent science-fiction story.
  7. 70
    The picture feels weirdly, and disappointingly, disjointed, something that starts out as poetry and ends as product.

    A lot of people seem to share my opinion about how incredible this film was. I personally feel that this may be the best film I've ever seen. I don't see this as bashing any one group of people based on their weight (...and I love that one person commented on how this movie would offend "fat people". Don't you think that some people might find that label offensive?). It does raise some important questions about the amount of time that we spend in front of our computer/screens these days, the lack of time that we spend playing outdoors and interacting with others face to face, and the nature of the "corporate beasts" that rule the retail market. More importantly, it's got great music, amazing graphics, and is truly endearing and hilarious. Watch this movie. And then go for a walk with family or friends. Expand

    People who like this movie get it. People who hate this movie...well, they probably connected with the humans onboard that ship and hate it so. This movie worked harder than The Dark Knight even if it is the best comic movie ever made. So, the number of good reviews are correct. Expand

    One of the finest movies I have ever seen. Took my kids to see it and it mesmerized all of us. PIXAR deserves the Best Picture Oscar for this one.

    Wall-E is, by far, one the best films I have ever seen in my life. Wall-E definatly has what it takes to win 'The Best Picture Oscar 2009'.

    Although the beginning is rather slow, it gets very entertaining. The subtle humor is great and the series of events are enjoyable. It also provides a valuable lesson to all who wish to preserve this fragile world. Expand

    The fart noises and the sexually suggested messages wasn't my thing. Who are you catering to: little kids or socially retarded adults?
