The Green Plant

A robot doing the cleaning of a ruined earth, segregating wastes, putting things into order, suddenly becomes a key to the renewal of earth as another robot was sent to the planet in search of a plant.

***
Wall-E is not just a cute movie, it created a statement on how humanity becomes after the advent of industrialization and technological advancements. The film, strengthened by good visuals and audio mixes, presented a good material and brilliant executions. Although I thought, at first, that it would be like a silent film (the robot can't talk), at some point, it was boring. I also did not like how they injected an antagonist. I think it would be better, if it focused on being a feel-good movie instead of putting conflicts which, for me, is not really necessary.
Over-all, it was a ...

Robot Finds Love, Critic Finds Good Movie

It's been years since I've seen Wall-E. I remember enjoying it, just like the rest of the Pixar bunch, so I got it via Netflix to see again. A wise choice. Wall-E is even better than I remember it.

Wall-E is an ingenious film that occurs thousands of years in the future. Humans no longer live on the Earth due to pollution, they instead live in a giant spaceship, called the Axim. The Wall-E robots are left at Earth to clean up the mess. All of the Wall-E's, however, have been wiped out over time. Only one remains. But when EVE, a robot from the Axim, comes to Earth to find life, Wall-E's life is flipped upside down.

The first half-hour of the film is performed with minimal dialogue, but still mananges to express all kinds of emotion: Laughter, loneliness, perhaps even sadness. I cr...

"Wall-E" by Yojimbo

The Earth has been abandoned by the human race and a lone robot is left behind to tend this interplanetary garbage dump. I'm fully aware that I'm not the intended audience for this kind of thing, and I'm sure kids love the character of Wall-E. But for me, he is easily the worst aspect of this film and brings nothing to the story but the usual weak slapstick and sappy sentimentality I've come to expect from cartoons. Not to mention the fact that whenever he's on the screen the dialogue is nothing but "Eva...?" Wall-E!" "EVA!" "WALL-E!!" etc etc ad nauseum. For this reason I very nearly didn't get past the first half an hour of this film as it contains nothing but. Once the story gets going however, it's quite an enjoyable little sci-fi fairytale involving a human race that has become a hor...

Wall-E review

Several WALL-E’s (Waste Allocation Load Lifter, Earth Class) were tasked to clean-up the earth from years of trash accumulated. Humans now live in a ship called Axiom where everything can be accessed with a push of a button or voice command. A robot named EVE (Extraterrestrial Vegetation Evaluator) was tasked to look for any living organism to provide future vegetation, to bring back Earth’s natural resources to make it livable again.

A few memorable lines: Captain – “But life is sustainable now. Look at this plant. Green and growing. It's living proof he was wrong.” “I don't want to survive. I want to live.” A simple premise yet everything from the eye-catching graphics, delightful script and a myriad of themes such as humanity, love, consumerism, leisure, responsibility in our ...

Review: "Wall-E"

Wall-E is a winner in every aspect. It works as a love story, a satrical comedy and a entertaining sci-fi adventure. Stunning visuals are all over, like in every Pixar movie. The thing that makes this movie work is how perfect and daring the first 30 minutes are. The beginning does a unique and wonderful thing by making it a sort of a slient film. Kids might not get into the movie from its first act, but there are things for kids to enjoy, as well as adults. Any movie that makes a cockroach a loveable character is a work of genius. All the credit goes to director, Andrew Stanton, who does a fantasic job. There is also a enthralling score thats award worthy. Wall-E could be of the best characters Pixar has created. Not the best Pixar movie but its probably the 2nd best one ive seen. One o...

The Most overated film of the year

I did write a long and detailed review but it did not make it on, so I will summarize this time. The plot is poor and derivative notable taking the character Hal the computer. The main plot is poor and was added to some how give a story and lengthen the running time. The majority of the film are sight gags that are not very funny, and very chaplinesque. The art style is disappointing due to the repetitiveness and blandness of it even though the great technology is still obvious. I only laughed once and that was because I noticed that the captain was based on ten ton homer from an old episode of the simpsons. Finally I know it is liked because it is brilliant compared to films like space chimps but it still is nothing compared to the old Disney films.


Pros: Great looking in terms of t...

Sparks Flying

"Wall-E" was by far the best movie of the summer next to "Dark Knight" and "Iron Man." It was getting a bad rap for being "slow" and "environmental," but I thought that added greater depth to the story. Sure, there was little spoken dialogue and most of the film was sight-gags and a classier, sophisticated comedy, but that's the groundbreaking beauty of it. What's so incredible about what Pixar has done, is that they have instilled messages into every picture they've done, but until now, they have been rather stilted and juvenile. This is an actual concern in the world today and it is being brought to the attention of young children in peaceful, hilarious ways. The Autopilot was by the far the scariest Pixar villain to date, and I just may have nightmares, but its all worth it in the...

Another Great Film from Pixar

Unsurprisingly, I’m impressed with WALL-E in so many levels. I think out of all the Pixar films released to date, this is the most atmospheric: from the post-apocalyptic Earth where WALL-E is sent to deal with waste to outer space where WALL-E discovers what he was meant for. The environs reminded me of the ravaged London from “28 Days Later” to the deserted New York City in “I Am Legend.” Despite the eye-candy visuals for children, there were many layers to this film for adults. For instance, there were comments about the way we push our environment to its limits, our neglect for our physical bodies due to recent developments in technology, our eating habits, and our proclivity (whether we are aware or not) toward hiding behind anything that’s available so we wouldn’t have to deal with r...

Groundbreaking

Exemplary, Heartwarming, Fun, you name it. The film goes against typical animation formula wherein there are wall to wall pop-culture and potty jokes and the like. This is far more deeper and multi-layered which is refreshing since most recent animated films are rather superficial. I commend Pixar for crafting a film that engages audiences in thought, rather than churning out films that spoon-feed the audience.

Wall-E may be a robot but he is someone many of us could relate to for he exhibits emotions that are all too human. Anybody who has an ounce of heart left in them would definitely feel for the little guy. The visuals are outstanding as always which we've come to expect from Pixar, but it is the story of Wall-E that many of us will take to heart. Overall, this film is one for ...

Charming*

Visually stunning, and aims for the heart. This richly detailed film is sprinkled with clever humor while carrying a strong message.

You find yourself attached to these little machines who manage to strongly emote and express themselves with little to no dialogue, which is no easy task these days. Many of the beautiful visuals leave a stain, such as Wall-E & Eve's waltz out in space while Sigourney Weaver defines "dancing" to the awe-struck Captain. Creating these memorable moments, both unique and adorable, sets Pixar far above any of the animation studios today, it's almost their trademark.

(And only Pixar can make a cockroach cute)

It could just be my love of sci-fi, but I enjoyed the idea of the robots having bigger hearts than all the humans in the movie combined.
