a very nice story, and fun to watch.
Pixar has done it again with a sweet scence fiction movie called "Wall-E." the premise of this film centers on a robot named "Wall-E." He's part of a group of robots who are out to clean the Earth of garbage. When the movie opens he's the only robot that is still functioning. His only friend is a roach and at night, he watched the 1969 musical "Hello Dolly" over and over again. then one day, a rocketship came and Wall-E is taken to a huge spaceship which is run by overweight people. As for the rest of this movie, all I can say is you just have to see this movie."Wall-E" is one of the best movies of the year. Just like the other Pixar films in the past thirteen years, we got characters we cared about and the adventures they faced. Plus these movies are a fun rollar coaster ride. it may take a few years for a Pixar movie to be made. but I'll wait, if a Pixar movie is high quality you can't argue about that. Both kids and adults will love this movie. Summers are made for Pixar movies and "Wall-E" is one of those movies.
Comedy, drama, action and romance all rolled into one of the best movies this summer!
Wall-E was more then I expected even after watching the trailers. The movie never seemed boring while it kept you refreshed with new scenes and situations.
Plus, you'll be able to find out what happens to humans on a very very very long cruise.
This was nothing like any of the other Pixar movies - very disappointing.
i think you should stay away from this movie it was very boreing
After all the praise I saw heaped upon this movie, I was looking forward to seeing this latest Pixar creation with my 8 year old. Unfortunately, the movie left me a little flat. My 8 year old thought it was good, though.
The most effective scenes are in the first part, where we get to meet Wall-E and the world he lives in. His curiosity and appearance make him a likable character. It doesn't hurt, as well, that he looks a little like Number 5 from the Short Circuit movies.
When Wall-E leaves the planet, the movie takes a turn for the worse. While we understand his motivation of trying to find his new crush, Eve, his mission once he finds her is a little less enjoyable.
The commentary about how the human race turns out when they are served everything in a cup and carted around on hover-chairs is mildly amusing, but even though I am an ecologically sensitive person, I found the overtly environmental message too blunt for my taste.
Toss in the fact that they felt compelled to introduce a villain into the story, and there's just too much going on without a purpose. Even the ending is not all that sweet, and just ends up being dissatisfying instead.
Kudos to some of the people at Pixar for creating a character that is likable and that we would want to see more about. I just don't think this story was worthy of the character.
Maybe my opinion will be different after seeing it again, and that's why I'm giving it a Wait for Rental. The extras that are planned for the Blu-ray edition and the 3-disc DVD sound like Disney is pulling out all the stops, and maybe there will be some nuggets in there that will increase my enjoyment of the movie.
Until then, I'd watch Ratatouille, Cars, Toy Story, or any of the other Pixar movies in a heartbeat!
