Critic Reviews for WALL-E
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.
The latest entry in the Pixar stable is a modern classic - both an animated thrill ride, and a chilling tale of lost humanity.
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.
Audience Reviews for WALL-E
A pretty darn good movie, done nearly entirely in pantomime as two AI's develop both self consciousness and feelings for one another in the midst of fulfilling their dreary, lonely and meaningless allotted assignments. The backdrop for this very typical relationship quest (except that they're machines) is a Planet Earth literally and totally trashed and abandoned, and a humankind stranded both in space and by their dependence on technology. Not bad stuff which reheats easily for the second and third viewings
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.
