Wall-E Movie Review

What would you do if you were the only living creature left on a toxic, uninhabitable planet called Earth? You would probably die of boredom! You are human afterall. But Wall-E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter-Earth class) is not human. He is a robot and an adorable one at that.

Wall-E . . .

For seven hundred years, Wall-E goes about doing his job – cleaning up mountains of trash and converting them into blocks and constructing buildings with them. He is a lonely soul who yearns for company. He only has his pet cockroach with him. His hobby is to collect random objects from the trash that he cleans up.

Then one day a spaceship lands on Earth and a beautiful robot steps out. Wall-E falls in love with her. Yes, it is a female robot called Eve. Eve’s job is to look for any sign of plant life and take it back to the massive spaceliner where humans are holed up. Wall-E hitches a ride on the spaceship as he does not want lose his love. After having turned the Earth into a huge toxic junkyard, the notorious multi-national corporation Buy N Large has sent its customers into space where they are pampered by all kinds of robots. They move about in hover-chairs and have everything served to them. They turn into fat, lazy beings who can barely stand up. Once Eve reaches the spaceliner, things have to change.

Andrew Stanton has done a great job with the story and direction. Pixar’s Wall-E is not just an animated movie for kids. Adults would enjoy it as much as kids, if not more. You will forget that Wall-E and Eve are mere machines. They are fabulous robots with human qualities that you can identify with. If you love sci-fi fantasy movies, watch Wall-E twice without thinking! 🙂

    I AGREE! I totally enjoyed Wall E. It’s amazing how much interactions could exist without much of dialogue! And i liked the little robot which was cleaning up after Wall E.
    Very sound piece to share your personal preference and experience.
    Btw, it’s Pleasantville 🙂 Smallville is something else.

  8. Thanks, Sathish! 🙂

    Wall-E is definitely an enjoyable movie. Though there isn’t much dialogue, there are some fabulous lines like this one:

    I don’t want to survive! I want to live!!! 🙂
