I loved it, loved it, loved it. From the visuals to the characters to the story to the comedy to the surprisingly deep morality, this is a fantastic movie, even if you don't have any whippersnappers with you. Surprisingly touching, poignantly romantic (I know, it's about robots, but...you have to see it to understand). Previously, the best Pixar movies had a razor-sharp verbal wit (Toy Story, The Incredibles) but Wall-E, having a pair of leads who hardly speak, resurrects the type of sweet characterizations and physical comedy found in the silent masterworks of Charlie Chaplin. While Iron Man may be the year's best entertainer so far, Wall-E spoke to me more, and was equally entertaining in it's own sweet way. And it is a visual feast. See it on the big screen. ***** (out of five)
Puede que el guión peque un poco de simplón en algunas de sus ideas; aun así es muy disfrutable y tiene un buen mensaje que tanto niños como padres deberían de tener en cuenta.
Wall-e is a dutiful little robot running on a rechargeable solar powered battery. It is his duty to sort and stack junk. While humanity is away surviving on their ark, Wall-e has been doing his job for hundreds of years. He is a cleaner of the Earth, building large rectangular piles of compressed scrap metal. Wall-e is given a personality and the human like trait of craving some companionship after a long day of work, so he is a collector of interesting and useful items, including many spare parts which he uses to fix himself as needed. Wall-e's one friend is a lone insect, a seemingly indestructable bug.
A female seeming robot named Eva is sent to Earth to do a routine scan for life. She finds a plant growing in an old boot and fulfills her mission to bring it back. This is very exciting news for humanity! They can stop living on the ark and go home and replant and rebuild the Earth. One little problem: the artificially intelligent ark auto-pilot does NOT want to give up its role as benevolent caretaker and unofficial ruler of humans. Wall-e and Eva and the human Captain together battle the auto-pilot to put the ship back into human control.
It is defiantly a must watch.
