Storyline: In a distant, but not so unrealistic, future where mankind has abandoned earth because it has become covered with trash from products sold by the powerful multi-national Buy N Large corporation, WALL-E, a garbage collecting robot has been left to clean up the mess. Mesmerized with trinkets of Earth's history and show tunes, WALL-E is alone on Earth except for a sprightly pet cockroach. One day, EVE, a sleek (and dangerous) reconnaissance robot, is sent to Earth to find proof that life is once again sustainable. WALL-E falls in love with EVE. WALL-E rescues EVE from a dust storm and shows her a living plant he found amongst the rubble. Consistent with her "directive", EVE takes the plant and automatically enters a deactivated state except for a blinking green beacon. WALL-E, doesn't understand what has happened to his new friend, but, true to his love, he protects her from wind, rain, and lightning, even as she is unresponsive. One day a massive ship comes to reclaim EVE, but WALL-E, ...

WALL-E is one of the most cutest, lovable characters Pixar ever invented!!
Not only it's Pixar's best film of all-time but it's the best movie of this year and one of the greatest imaginative, visually, moving & excellent animated films in years and surprisingly, one of the best sci-fi movies since E.T.!! Coming with high expectations, it definitely succeeded mines. It's so beautiful, moving, hilarious & sad at the same time. And for those who has been anticipating Thomas Newman's score for WALL-E, it's certainly one of his best right behind Finding Nemo in which I thought was his best score to date! Like I said it's Pixar best film so far, WALL-E knocked off Ratatouille of the top spot in which I thought it was their best film to date and officially, WALL-E is the best Pixar film i've ever seen with Ratatouille right behind and Finding Nemo, third. Pixar fan or non-Pixar fan, you'll definitely enjoy this one. WALL-E will forever be remembered as one of the most lovable characters ever created on film!!!

I am at odds with majority of IMDb audience
I decided to add my voice because this film is highly rated and I have never found myself at such odds with the majority of the IMDb audience.

Spoiler at end.

I read enough to see that I have nothing to add concerning its technical achievement, obviously well done.

I am an avid science fiction fan (books and film) so I agree with those who find this story weak. I went because I wanted to know why this film was so highly rated across all the demographic areas although I had my doubts based on the preview.

Apparently many do not agree with me but I would like to caution others that if you look forward to thought provoking ideas and having your preconceived notions challenged you will be disappointed. Even younger audiences may become bored after 1/2 hour although the visual stimulation may be sufficient.

My background includes special effects in film and computer program development so I naturally appreciate the films technical prowess. But I also know well almost all the science fiction films made to date including those with serious as well as comic presentations and WALL-E does not rate well for me when compared to them.

WALL_E missed being sufficiently provocative or amusing so I found it bland. The film, however, was much better portraying the emotional connections between the two main characters which is quite an achievement considering WALL-E was a garbage disposal unit who apparently developed over a long period of time a more than human heart (think of your feelings for roaches).

Spoiler follows: The ideas of planet ruin via garbage and humans becoming fat, technologically catered to, isolated in space, and thus unmotivated beings after 700 years is interesting but each of these is not original and I, at this time, cannot clearly describe why the film failed to engage me. Perhaps with such a future there should be more angst.

What Screenplay?
This movie was nominated for Best Screenplay? What screenplay? WalllllEEEEEEE WallllllEEEEE beep beep cat sea he she me it. Is robot mambo jumbo a new language that is worthy of an Oscar nomination? It didn't win, but then it wasn't even in the top 100 screenplays What screenplay? plus the movie is boring. Robots in love; now that is a new concept; just like sharks in love and snakes in love some things are not able to love and to imagine them in love is not much entertainment. I seldom see an animated movie; some have been great. What is it about space and robots and science fiction that is somehow so entertaining? I can't figure that out. Doesn't grab my attention.

Let's hope that after Pixar's season of reboots we will have some original films like this one.
There wasn't much to complain about this film. The storyline and way of storytelling was great, and the visuals weren't bad but the use of actual actors did take away from the immersion of the film. With all that being said, I decided to give WALL-E a "Very Good" on theVade Review Bar or a 9 out of 10. This was honestly a great Pixar film, and like I said above, I think that this is one of the better Pixar movies I've seen in a long time. Let's hope that after Pixar's season of reboots we will have some original films like this one.

Brilliant and Powerful
My son wanted to see this, and so I looked it up on IMDb.com just to see what it was about. There was a lot of debate about it on the forum. A lot of people hated it and said they walked out; some were offended. This made me actually want to go see it. My favorite movies are written and directed by David Lynch, and so many people hate those movies. Sometimes I think that people just need their sh*t handed to them on a silver platter - they don't like to actually have to THINK about the plot. ...Not that Wall-E is hard to follow, but it takes a certain caliber of intelligence to appreciate a film that doesn't have any dialogue for the first 40 minutes. In my opinion, to pull off getting your audience to connect to a character so intensely without him saying a word of dialogue is just pure brilliance. This doesn't sound like a kid movie at all, does it? In fact, I do not think that young children could understand the true meaning of the movie.

It's 700 years from now and we have Wall-E, a little trash compactor robot, whose only job is to clean the mess that the earth has become after humans have turned it into a giant landfill and abandoned it for another planet. There is no life on earth, no grass, nothing - just garbage. He spends his days doing this along with one cockroach who has also survived this "apocalypse." Occasionally Wall-E finds a piece of garbage he wants to keep, and he has his own little area which he made for himself where he keeps his collections. One day he finds a small plant growing in from the dirt and is amazed by it as he has never seen vegetation or life of any kind. He scoops it up and puts it in an old boot with some dirt and adds it to his collection. Wall-E realizes he is lonely when he finds a video tape and watches the humans dancing happily, holding hands and laughing. He sees that his "hand" (claw) is very similar to a human's hand, and wonders why he has to be alone.

After a spaceship landing to deliver another robot sent to clean up the mess (EVE), Wall-E and EVE become friends and Wall-E shows her all of his collections, but when he shows her the plant, her "body" opens up, captures the plant, and then she shuts down completely. The spaceship returns to get her but Wall-E, determined not to lose his friend, holds onto the spaceship and flies into outer space.

The destination is the other planet "Axiom" that the humans now live on. Everywhere you look is bright flashing lights and signs for food and shopping. The humans are all grotesquely overweight and travel around in hovering chairs. They are brainwashed and memorized by flashing screens in front of their faces - which from what I gathered seemed to be a combination TV/phone/ordering service. Consumerism is out of control as everyone is eating and shopping and glued to their TV screens. Up until now, there was no dialogue in the movie. The humans never get up from their chairs, and they never have to, because of the technology. There are robots everywhere doing all the work so humans are free to do whatever they want; however, all they want is to shop, eat, and watch TV. They are also obviously a lot less intelligent. At one point even, the captain of the ship needs to look at some sort of manual, and doesn't know how to read or even open the book - nor has he ever even heard of a book.

Once they find out there is life on earth again, they are disappointed because they'll have to go back to rebuild it and give up their lifestyles.

Throughout all of this the sub-plot is about the connection that Wall-E and EVE have, which is definitely more picked up by the kids. They get separated, and back together, one is in trouble and the other one helps ...etc. Sounds kind of cheesy when I describe, but was also extremely powerful in the ways in which it was conveyed. I won't write anymore, in the event that someone is still reading this and actually wants to see it. But seriously - go see it. ;-)

So What is Wall-E All About?
Many are complaining about the hypocritical message that Disney/Pixar is offering by making a movie about the evils of commercialism and capitalism and then marketing it and its products. On that point they've missed the mark because it's not about the evils of commercialism and capitalism, it's about gluttony and what can happen when you stop paying attention. I think the movie itself is a representation of this, don't get distracted by Wall-E's charm, Eve's streamlined features, and the ever mesmerizing animation. Instead pause and remember the film is trying to offer you something besides entertainment. If you just sit there and let the film wash over you, you've only had a pleasurable experience (not unlike a smooth hover chair ride). But if you engage with Wall-E, Eve, the captain and their struggles you can take away more from the theatre, you'll need to get out of your hover chair to do it though and actually take a good look at the stars outside.

Secondly environmentalism, capitalism, commercialism, monopolies, and so forth were not the only topics addressed in this film. I felt undercurrents of both self-discovery and appreciation for others uniqueness. Wall-E apparently already wasn't quite like other robots. He's curious, inventive, and protective. However Wall-E doesn't learn what he's really made of until he takes his journey into space to "save" Eve. There he proves that he's not only loyal and creative but also courageous, tenacious, and friendly. This rounds out his character as a hero and one that changes over the course of the story even though he was designed with a single purpose.

Eve is purposeful, career-oriented, and a little bit dangerous. She does her job well and defines herself by her directives. Through her journey she expands her programming by learning what friends can and will do for one another. She learns other things are sometimes more important than carry out your duties. No more clearly does she learn this lesson then at the end of the film when the Wall-Eness of Wall-E seems to have disappeared. I feel this is also the point in the film that drives home the message of self-discovery and individuality. Without that certain spark, Wall-E is just like all the other Wall-Es around him.

Finally there is the captain. No one knows how he got his position on the ship but however it happened his position merely has the illusion of power. From the trailers I thought the captain was going to be the villain of the story, but he is a good guy and he too goes on a journey of growth and exploration. It seems he is just like the other humans, but instead he proves himself to be capable of bettering himself through self-starting education and changing the way he functions on a daily basis. Though he remains somewhat a bumbling character throughout the film he does the right thing and passes his newfound knowledge and hope onto the other humans.

On that note stick around until the credits start scrolling on black. The story doesn't end when the computer animation does. This story was told mostly without words so when the other sound effects leave the screen don't assume the message ends. At that point the purest form of film is left: story through images. I think the negative reviewers forgot that too.

Big ol' humans
Wall-e, is perhaps one of the greatest movies ever released by Pixar. The movie begins with a small, rusty robot named Wall-e. He is a trash compactor for a future earth, abandoned by humans because of all of its filth. But, one day Wall-e meets a robot named Eva. This robot was sent by the human race in order to find plant life to prove that earth was again livable. Eventually, Eva does find plant life and is called back to her ship. Wall-e follows her and makes it on to the ship. As Wall-e boards the ship, he sees, for probably the first time, what time has done to the human race. Humans are all insanely fat wasting their time away drinking food, sitting in transportation chairs, and using their futuristic screens. Although most remain captivated by their technology, there are many small scenes inserted into the movie in which humans rediscover parts of life they have forgotten. Wall-e, a wonderfully crafted Pixar movie, shows the small joys of life that humanity often takes for granted.

One of the first things that this movie shows us, is that we take being able to move around for granted. Have you ever thought about how cool it is that you could walk, because I know I haven't. In the movie Wall-e, people are pretty much contained to wherever their chair can go. In one scene, a man is knocked out of a chair by our beloved robot and is left to flounder around helplessly calling for help. Although Wall-e does eventually gets him back into his seat, the movie goer knows that humans are essentially helpless by themselves. Imagine what kind of life we would live without being able to move. There would be no beach going, no water parks, no rollercoasters. Life would be terrible without being able to move. Wall-e shows not only movement is taken for granted, but also lack of technology.

When I write technology I mean everything whether it be phones, tablets, or even roads. Sometimes we just need to take a break from everything and look away. I am fairly certain that no one ever really thinks about how lucky they are that they are not completely surrounded by technology. This is what is awful about life in Wall-e. People are so caught up in their video conversations and what not that they don't pay attention to the what surrounds them. In one scene of Wall-e, Wall-e accidentally bumps into a women on her space chair. When he accidentally stops her video screen, she looks away and is almost paralyzed by awe at the gigantic ship surrounding her. But, because almost all of the humans in the movie are always lost in their screens, they almost forget where they are. Hopefully, we never take for granted the wonderful world we live in and have our earth end up like Wall-e's. Although we should never take these two things for granted, they are both not even close to being as important as living.

"I don't want to survive, I want to live". This was said by the captain of the ship towards the end of the movie and I feel like it sums up the entire point of this film. Humans are so lost video chatting, eating, or whatever when they should be living life. This can be shown by the two of the main human characters John and Mary. These were the two people that Wall-e bumped into earlier. Not only do they stop living wired to their screens, but they end up falling in love. They stare into space and take trips to the pool with each other while others are completely oblivious. Humans should never forget about this. Sometimes it's better to go and live your life rather than just play it by the book.

In conclusion, Wall-e shows us many things that we take for granted. These abnormally large humans prove that some of the little things that we have in life aren't treasured as much as they should be. Humans should always be aware of their gifts whether it be living, being away from technology, or just moving. Thank you Wall-e.

Eve of love
Wall-E starts off unusually enough with little dialogue but show tunes from a Barbara Streisand film. A lone garbage compacting robot in a desolate, waste ridden earth of the future until one day a ship lands and unleashes a female robot, Eve who leaves him smitten. In fact the film makes it plain repeatedly that Wall-E is in love.

There is another story of a ship on a centuries old journey where the humans have evolved to be obese and rather lazy. These are the descendants of the people who escaped from the rubbish strewn planet, the ship has a nominal captain but most of the real work is done by a computer.

The film although coming in from another angle of a robot wanting, even needing affection and finding it which leads him to a journey in space then falls for some dependable Disney/Pixar plot points. There has to be a villain with a hidden agenda, there will be some pulsating but humorous chase scenes.

Also if the humans spend all their time on those hover chairs drinking fizzy drink all day, who was the person having the time to have babies because we get the impression that these people were too busy or empty to have personal relationships.

The animation is of a very high standard but the start might be deemed to be slow and the film looks flawed if you examine it too carefully. Also the film ends up paying a homage to 2001:A space odyssey.

Good but not great, despite some wonderful pieces
This is the story of Wall-E a robot who is alone working on earth cleaning up the polluted planet. One day he finds a plant and takes it home. When one day a space ship lands Wall-E meets EVE who has been left on the planet for some reason. The reason is to find signs that plants are returning, so when Wall-E shows EVE the planet she sends a signal for pick up and is whisked back to a space ship where all of mankind has been living-with Wall-E in pursuit.

This is a mostly wordless feature film not only about robots who fall in love but also what it means to be human and what it means to be alive. Its also a satire, of sorts, about the fat lazy people that we in the West have become.

Technically this is one of the most beautifully animated films that Pixar has done. Its wonderful to look at. The places and spaces and the characters are all beautifully rendered. The film creates more than good number of real characters, both robots and people and its the characters that make the film worth seeing.

The problem is that the story is a bit of a mess. On the one hand you have the central story of the romance of Wall-E and EVE, but you also have this glaring social commentary looming over everything. From the polluted Earth of the first half to the fat people in space during the second. Which is more important? To me its the romance and its there that the film shines. Frankly I got teary during any number of sequences dealing with the romance. Unfortunately the "get the plant so we can go home story" kind of goes nowhere smoothly as situation keeps being inserted again and again to keep it going. On top of that we have the not so hidden messages about how lazy we all are and how happiness is "not following the path". The story goes from well told story about Wall-e and Eve to the Captain (who is wonderful and under utilized-I wanted more of him) to the two human "lovers" John and Mary who begin to see life out side of their hoover-chairs.

There is this really good robot romance stuck in here thats gotten lost somewhere along the way. I was sobbing during the four minute trailer that was floating around a few months ago that focused beautifully on the romance. I went from not being sure if it would work to being sure they hit it out of the park. There's this wonderful simple story locked in there with all this not as wonderful stuff around it. (A word of warning- the trailers give a good number of gags away) Yes I've complain about every Pixar Movie. (Toy Story 2 isn't as good as the first one, Bugs Life is too slow, Monsters Inc was not quite Toys Story, Nemo didn't completely thrill me, Incredibles is too long, Cars is too simple and their eyes wig me out, Ratatouille, while very good, isn't the the great second coming many claimed) Say What you will I own all but A Bugs Life. Other than Cars I think all have improved with time (thanks to the critical claim that this Pixar is the next big thing no loner being considered) And while I do think Ratatouille has too much story and needs to be trimmed down, I don't think that any of them have as many problems story wise as this (certainly none has as many character needing exploration and fleshing out).

What is this film about-really I don't know. I adore the romance and wish I had someone to take to see it since its so charming, but at the same time...I don't know it all doesn't come together for me.

Perhaps I could see some of the story line too clearly. I could tell what the next shot was or the next motion would be. Perhaps I saw too many jokes in the trailers and commercials. Maybe it was the god awful Hello Dolly clip playing over and over and over. Maybe it was the one movie too many that played Le Vie En Rose. I don't know. there is something about the film that doesn't allow it to hang together for me. I admire its construction but I don't love the result.

I still like it. I'd give it between 6.5 to 7 out of 10, but at the same time the parts are better then the whole.

Go see it and make up your own mind-if nothing else there are some really neat things in it.

Not Pixar's best, by any stretch of the imagination
It's the future, folks, and once again, life on Earth is a shoddy bit of business. Environmental abuses have destroyed the planet, human beings have spent the last 700 years getting morbidly obese while cruising naively through space in an interstellar ocean liner, and the only sentient entities left on the mother planet are cockroaches (the only apparent life-forms) and Wall-E, a tiny robot whose job it is to clean up trash. He's been doing this for centuries, long past the point where his original mission was abandoned, but without any orders to countermand his initial instructions, he must continue on his course, and does so, dutifully and without complaint.

That is, until the unexpected arrival of Eve, a significantly more advanced robot, who flies in from space and tours the surface of the Earth, apparently looking for life. Glad for the company, Wall-E befriends the newcomer and shares his recent and miraculous discovery: a plant of some kind, growing inside a boot. Subsequent adventures return Eve to the Axiom, the aforementioned ocean liner, with Wall-E in tow. Therein, the two must resolve a dispute between the Captain of the ship, who sees the plant and wants to re-colonize Earth, and Co-Pilot, an automated navigation system that refuses to deviate from ancient instructions labeling Earth life-threatening.

It's a good movie all in all, but it's not good enough, at least not for my taste.

I take my sci-fi seriously. It's a fault of mine, and I willingly admit it. I don't like cute robots, I don't like explosions that are audible in space, and I'm highly annoyed with the overwhelming mass of thinly supported "space fantasy" that's given the genre a light-hearted, superficial, and escapist tone, marginalizing such intellectual literary greats as Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke and preventing science fiction from ever receiving the respect and recognition it deserves.

Wall-E is certainly better than the average offender. Astonishing visuals, a solid sense of humor, and the good old Pixar charm combine to make it one of the more enjoyable films of the summer. I was especially amused with the Apple references: Wall-E's Macintosh startup sound, the ubiquitous iPod design, the use of MacInTalk for Co-Pilot's voice, et cetera. Like Ratatouille, The Incredibles, and the rest of the Pixar canon, there's a lot of depth to the movie, more than enough to lift it above the shoulders of standard kiddy fair.

Unfortunately, no amount of glamour could distract me from the plethora of unanswered questions that by the end of the movie had piled up higher than Wall-E's towers of junk. Why, for instance, would Wall-E's designers make him capable of empathy, when the tediousness of his job description made any kind of emotion a severe liability? As an emotional creature, how could he spend 700 years performing history's most repetitive task without going insane? Why would a perfunctory probe like Eve come equipped with facial expressions and the capacity for romance? What were the cockroaches feeding on if Earth had been lifeless for seven centuries? What can you make of a robot strong enough to hang onto the outside of a spaceship blasting into orbit but weak enough to get taken out by a handful of shopping carts? Why would the passengers of the Axiom slide down the slope of the deck when the ship clearly created its own gravity and, as such, could assume any number of positions in space without anyone on the inside of the ship ever knowing the difference? And how could a society of obese layabouts with seventy decades of sloth at their backs so quickly warm to the challenge of "re-colonizing Earth?" Sure, it's a G-rated cartoon, and children are the primary audience, and part of me feels like a nit-picking A-hole to even think about getting this technical, but I can't shake the feeling that Stanton could have invested a little more in the way of plausibility without making his movie any less appealing. The kids would still have been happy, the fantasy lovers wouldn't have known the difference, and the small batch of sci-fi curmudgeons like myself could have basked in the certainty that finally a director cared enough about our interests to pitch us a story we believed.
