Pixar genius reigns in this funny romantic comedy, which stars a robot who says absolutely nothing for a full 25 minutes yet somehow completely transfixes and endears himself to the audience within the first few minutes of the film. As the last robot left on earth, Wall-E (voiced by Ben Burtt) is one small robot--with a big, big heart--who holds the future of earth and mankind squarely in the palm of his metal hand. He's outlasted all the "Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class" robots that were assigned some 700 years ago to clean up the environmental mess that man made of earth while man vacationed aboard the luxury spaceship Axiom. Wall-E has dutifully gone about his job compacting trash, the extreme solitude broken only by his pet cockroach, but he's developed some oddly human habits and ideas. When the Axiom sends its regularly scheduled robotic EVE probe (Elissa Knight) to earth, Wall-E is instantly smitten and proceeds to try to impress EVE with his collection of human memorabilia. EVE's directive compels her to bring Wall-E's newly collected plant sprout to the captain of the Axiom and Wall-E follows in hot pursuit. Suddenly, the human world is turned upside down and the Captain (Jeff Garlin) joins forces with Wall-E and a cast of other misfit robots to lead the now lethargic people back home to earth. Wall-E is a great family film with the most impressive aspect being the depth of emotion conveyed by a simple robot--a machine typically considered devoid of emotion, but made so absolutely touching by the magic of Pixar animation. Also well-worth admiring are the sweeping views from space, the creative yet disturbing vision of what strange luxuries a future space vacation might offer, and the innovative use of trash in a future cityscape. Underneath the slapstick comedy and touching love story is a poignant message about the folly of human greed and its potential effects on earth and the entire human race. Wall-E is preceded in theaters by the comical short Presto in which a magician's rabbit, unfed one too many times takes his revenge against the egotistical magician.

Wall-E is a movie about a robot that was made to collect trash that we (humans) have caked the earth in. While Wall-E and his many brothers are cleaning the earth the humans take a space cruise and never come back. Fast forward 700 years, Wall-E is the only robot left working, all the other's have broken down, and he is sentient.
One day a spaceship comes and drops off another robot and Wall-E is infatuated with her, which she doesn't seem to let bother her after a while. They become friends and when she suddenly shuts down Wall-E is heart broken. The spaceship returns for her and Wall-E finds himself on a journey that will have consequences far beyond what one little robot could imagine.
Earth has become so polluted that people evacuated to luxurious space cruise liners. In the meantime, back on earth, trash-compacting robots work to collect trash and stack it in an effort to clean up the mess left by the now gone overconsuming population of humans. When the movie opens, Wall-E appears to be the last functioning robot. He's been doing his job for a long, long time, and in that time he developed a personality as he watches a tape of the muscial "Hello Dolly" over and over again.
Then, things get tense when a mysterious spaceship lands...
Interestingly, the good folks at Pixar put together a storyline that includes character AND plot development without relying, for the most part, on dialog.
By the way, my favorite parts of hte movie are the roach, and the scene when you hear music from "2001: A Space Odyssey" (just watch, and you'll see).
I believe that some people may find this movie to be too "Pollyanna", but let's face it, this is one of those rare high-quality movies produced mainly for children. While it does have an appeal for more mature audiences, it's main target audience is children. I appreaciate the fact that there are no wise-cracking or crude characters like those in movies like Shrek, etc. (animated movies that use animation, but are not really made for children).
I appreciate the work of Pixar in applying their trade to a fun and engaging show that can be enjoyed without reservation by children and adults alike.
When I started writing this review I considered awarding this product 3 or perhaps 4 stars, but once I started writing, thinking about my experience and the experience of my family wtih this movie it wasn't long before I realized that it truly deserved 5 stars. With that being said, I want you to know that I do not award 5 stars to everything...something has to be truly good (in my opinion) to warrant a 5-star rating.
Thanks Pixar! 5-stars!
I won't spoil any details of the movie, but let me leave it at this: if you're a person who enjoys thinking, someone who likes a story that doesn't treat you like a fool and is willing to assume for two hours that you're an intelligent, emotional person with a capacity to empathize and infer, then this is a movie that absolutely belongs in your collection.
That said, it was funny and one of the best Pixar films... although, can't think of any Pixar I dislike. If you like the short (layman's terms: SHORT cartoon before film), I highly recommend purchasing the Pixar Shorts! By far my favorite!
