After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, WALL•E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks and looking after his pet cockroach) when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE.
 
EVE comes to realize that WALL•E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet’s future, and races back to space to report her findings to the humans who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home.
 
Meanwhile, WALL•E chases EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most exciting and imaginative comedy adventures ever brought to the big screen.

"this film is so sophistaced I worry that it might just be too clever"

This film is so sophistaced I worry that it might just be too clever to connect with the mainstream audience, specifically young kids. I myself, a huge fan of Pixar, Sci-fi (yes Star Trek too) and even Sigourney Weaver's Galaxy Quest had me laughing from beginning to end. So, I was indeed very excited about seeing the 9th Pixar creation.

Opening with an almost picture perfect set - (you just won't believe your eyes) - the visual design of Wall-E is arguably Pixar's best. Even more astonishing, is the brilliance of how an old video tape of 'Hello Dolly!' makes Wall-E understand what love and happiness mean. In Pixar's other creations, you take the power of sound for granted, it isn't until WALL-E that you realise the breathtaking level of imagination and creativity that has gone into engaging this audience. Thinking hard, there is probably only 10% dialogue in this film, but I swear you'd believe Wall-E's vocal sounds are words speaking to us throughout his journey.

This is Pixar's finest and most emotionally powerful film yet, and it draws on a wealth of today's cinematic resources. Sci-fi aside, WALL-E is a love story, pure and simple. Pixar's creative animation artists drench the screen in a dazzling palette of violets, magentas, crimsons, and pinks - the colors of the heart - and achieve a level of clarity that approaches reality without sacrificing one iota of dreamy, animated wit. WALL-E pulls on all our emotions, its sad, hilarious, exciting, and, ultimately, hopeful.
