The film poses as thinking-fans animation, but there's little room for wonder or interpretation in the on-the-nose presentation.

WALL*E begins with all the comedic splendor of a Charlie Chaplin film, but quickly devolves into a rickety bore.

Ultimately, the elevation of technology to center stage, and the relegation of humankind to supporting act, left me cold.

While Wall-E dances whimsically, it's a plodding, frighteningly hypocritical, and forbidding film that trips over its fogged intentions at every dreary turn.

It is delicious for 30 minutes. Then the plot starts.

Cutes-E, but not enough gravit-E.

The picture feels weirdly, and disappointingly, disjointed, something that starts out as poetry and ends as product.

Vastly overrated movie with all the charm of two vacuum cleaners making love.

WALL-E dazzles, particularly in its magnificent first half-hour, a post-apocalyptic love-story in miniature that serves as a graceful introduction to the intergalactic journey that follows.

It is indeed a hard movie to explain, but a good story told well transcends any age even without words.

This film deserves the Oscar. It deserves every Oscar. And a Nobel Prize for brilliantness. And I bet it would win it too if I hadn't just made it up...

It's not often that you find 'post-apocalyptic' and 'delightful' going together in the same sentence, but they're essential to describe the deceptively artful Wall-E.

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

WALL-E may contain a simple love story about non-living robots that are full of wires and microchips, but it has more heart than any other movie you will see this year.

WALL-E is something completely different for the kiddie crowd that will hold the attention of adults even with the 'G' rating.

The 2001 of animation. It's a sci-fi masterpiece. R2D2 hits The Road. But it's also no Finding Nemo ...

The idea that an ancient Hollywood musical, with its love duets and foot-tapping dance numbers, would be the thing that awakens emotions in both humans and robots, is pure genius.

As a film critic who has spent too many summers viewing mediocre misfires and uninspired reinterpretations of TV shows, comic books and cult classics, it's immensely satisfying to recommend something as breathtakingly glorious as WALL-E.
June 27, 2008
Wall*E begins as a truly groundbreaking work and then turns into just another diverting cartoon with some wonderful themes.
