Movie Info

After hundreds of lonely years of 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 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 (who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home). 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.more

Critic Reviews for WALL-E

All Critics (244) | Top Critics (46)

I wonder a little what kids will make of the long silence of the first half followed by the disorienting mania of the second, but there's nothing here that's not wonderfully imagined and lovingly presented.

To carry the film for as long as it does with virtually no dialogue... that's to me the magic of animation.

Director Andrew Stanton has pulled off a remarkable achievement here.

The latest entry in the Pixar stable is a modern classic - both an animated thrill ride, and a chilling tale of lost humanity.

Full Review… | October 21, 2014

It indeed feels 'new', moving out of Pixar's comfort zone while retaining the brand's populist virtues: loveable characters, crafted jokes, aw-shucks niceness and wonderful images.

We've come to expect brilliance from the digital wizards at Pixar, but WALL*E is pure genius.

Audience Reviews for WALL-E

Forget great Pixar film, this is just a great science-fiction film period. The title character and Eve make for a cute duo. Kids will enjoy the charmingly funny antics while adults will be taken in by the film's surprisingly dark and biting social commentary (obesity, commercialism, environmentalism). Every scene from the desolate Earth to the vastness of space bursts with some of the most beautiful animation committed to film. The robot characters are well-designed and manage to be endearing with very little dialogue. 'Wall-E' is a heartwarming love story combined with a great sci-fi tale and it remains a testament to why Pixar is one of the best things to ever happen to cinema.

Quite touching and entertaining, Wall-E is not the masterpiece some claim it to be, but it is another remarkable film from Pixar all the same.
