The tale of a trash compactor from the future who's desperate for connection isn't just one of Pixar's unlikeliest successes, but its most arresting and prescient.

Much of the film is wonderfully imagined, and there is something utterly winning about this tin can topped with binoculars... It's just a shame that, at the end, it trips itself up with its own SENTIMENTALITE.

Although Wall-E ends with a very apt and moving nod to City Lights, it is in fact Pixar's answer to Modern Times-both a bravura summation of everything the studio is great at and a "You ain't seen nothing yet!" statement of purpose.

Director Andrew Stanton has pulled off a remarkable achievement here.

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.

Much of the joy here comes from the aesthetic clash between the metallic sweethearts.

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.

Among its many wondrous achievements, the animated WALL-E is a sci-fi trifecta: a vision of the future, a tale for our times and a blast from the past.

The most consistent production unit in Hollywood just hit another home run.

A rich and provocative work of art that manages to be fun.

If anyone doubted that Pixar is the most creative outfit in modern motion pictures, this movie should convince them. It is a genuine masterpiece, a word I don't use often.

One of the most imaginatively made and individual pieces of work that the audacious Pixar has developed.

Praise Pixar for trying to raise the stakes, but the longer the film goes on the more one appreciates the impact of that amazing first half-hour.

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

The confidence and skill with which Stanton's team have extended the parameters of their art form are amazing.

Does Andrew Stanton's film amount to much more than a brilliant aesthetic exercise? I'm not convinced it does.

For once, the artful nods to Huxley, Kubrick and Philip K. Dick are not the preserve of trainspotters.

Absolute heaven.

WALL-E is a classic, but it will never appeal to people who are happy with art only when it has as little bite as possible.

You'd have to be a machine for your heart not to melt.
