One of the most
anticipated movies of the Summer was worth the wait, to the
point of falling into the list of one of the best films of
the Summer. That is the case of WALL•E the ninth release by
Disney and Pixar Animation Studios, directed and
written by Academy Award®-winner Andrew Stanton (“Finding Nemo”).
A film that just keeps the tradition, the standards,
the quality and the imagination that only Pixar and Disney
WALL•E (Waste Allocation
Load Lifter Earth-Class) is the story of the last earth
survivor, a robot. He has the life of a blue collar
worker by leaving his home to a waste yard piling up and
compressing garbage and the one that he finds curious he
puts it into his lunch bag. His only companion is a
pet cockroach and all the gadgets he stores in his home that
is until a space ship drops off EVE (Extra-terrestrial
Vegetation Evaluator) with the sole purpose of finding life
on earth. But she finds more than a plant, WALL•E
becomes her faithful admirer and eventually her hero.
These two with their creative robotic features are
absolutely hilarious and heart warming characters who fall
into sticky situations without forgetting that they carry
the fate of humanity on earth in their hands.
Amazingly the audience will
connect with these characters regardless of their limited
verbal participation in the film. Yet it is their
feelings which transmit that sense of humanistic traits that
helps to bring life to the characters and enhance the story.
The lack of dialogue do not take away from the cleverness of
this production, as a matter of fact the wit of the
producers is highlighted for its futuristic mechanics and
features presented throughout the film.
The visual aspect of the movie is golden,
as Pixar sets a new standard in animation. Their attempt to put to
use new technology into different camera angles is quite
innovative. The same goes for the sound, which
was beautifully matched to compensate enormously in a film
that lacks dialogues. The sound was complemented by
the music of the talented Thomas Newman and Peter Gabriel
expectations as described in his own words; “we wanted the
audience to believe they were witnessing a machine that has
come to life. The more they believe it’s a machine, the more
appealing the story becomes.” It is obvious that Stanton has
met his purpose when creating this heroic and loving robot .

People Review WALL•E
One of the best films I
have ever seen. It is like no other
robot movie ever made. Towards the end
of the movie I looked into the audience
and I saw a number of adults wiping away
tears! This is no child's film (although
you will laugh) it's like watching the
best of Kubrick and Keaton and Disney
and Chaplin and well, as I said, like no
other film I have ever seen before.
Great drama. Great humor. Great Science
"Wall-e" was wonderful.
The production design by Ralph Eggleston
is nothing less than astonishing, as is
the camera work and the lighting. And of
course, the animation simply blows every
current actor out of the competition.
The strict limitations imposed on their
limitations made the characters so
believable and endearing.
Best film I've seen all year.
Best movie ever hands down!
I really liked this movie.
It was really fun and had extremly funny characters!
