Excerpt: After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, the curious and lovable "WALL-E" discovers a new purpose in life when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. Join them and a hilarious cast of characters on a fantastic journey across the universe.
Excerpt: I don't know how Pixar does it, but every movie it releases resonates with audiences, perhaps because of the studio's ability to bring animated characters to life. Ben Burtt, the man who humanized R2-D2, does an equally fantastic job with WALL·E, giving the computer-generated image a soul.
Conclusion: Wall-E is the kind of movie that has the power to touch even the most cynical soul. It's a rare treat of a film that inspires and takes one's breath away with its almost effortlessly astounding storytelling.
Conclusion: 'Wall•E' is a wonderful film. It's majestic, emotional, thought-provoking, and wildly imaginative. It's also quite a risk for Pixar, as it mingles existential mediations on human existence with the lightness and whimsy the studio is so well known for, and it all pays off.
Excerpt: A love letter to science-fiction films of old with a modern environmentalist message, WALL-E is another winning confection from Pixar, the folks who have made an art out of wrapping adult themes in childish whimsy and coming out with movies that please both elements.
Excerpt: Ever since Toy Story showed the artistic—and, more attractively in Hollywood, financial—potential of CGI animated films, studios have rushed to follow, crowding theaters with CGI kids' romps that generally come packed with celebrity voices and commercial calculation.
Summary: Pixar Animation's latest film opens on a desolate Earth, 700 years after mankind has vacated for greener pastures. WALL-E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) is a small robot left behind to clean up. He needn't bother, really.
