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, ... Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?

Trivia

As described in a special feature on the film's DVD and Blu-ray releases, the inhabitants of the Axiom were originally going to be aliens led by a royal family with a penchant for mistreating its robots. Andrew Stanton eventually scrapped the alien idea. One of the early concepts for the evolution of humans in space for 700+ years based on this was that they would be some sort of devolved, gelatinous, boneless, legless, see-through, green creatures that resemble Jell-O. The design of the Axiom's passengers changed from gelatinous green blobs to more-solid gray blobs to the final "big baby" concept. See more »

Goofs

In an exterior view of WALL-E's life pod during the ejection scene, the pod's headlights have cones of scattered light. Although these would not appear in a vacuum, it is clear that Axiom is not in a vacuum, but inside a very dense nebula (which is a goof on its own, though), and also probably surrounded by all the air ejected during the frequent garbage removals. Moreover, most of the light scattering effects, if not all, can be produced by the lens of the camera and the air inside it, and it is known that the filmmakers tried to simulate the effects of a real camera (see trivia).

Pixar's still producing the best movies out there
7 June 2008 | by (San Francisco, United States) – See all my reviews

We went to the San Francisco Film Institute's first public screening at their campus in Emeryville. Everyone's sworn to secrecy, but for a film with little dialog, it carries more of an emotional punch and has a richer story than any live-action movie this year. The tone and style of the film is completely different for Pixar, and Disney haven't tried to override the darker thematic elements at all, making the story surprisingly three-dimensional.

This will end up being the animated film of the year and I had the same 'wow' feeling as after seeing Ratatouille. Considering that animated films have always played second-fiddle to live-action, and have been aimed at kids, it's ironic that once again Pixar produces a film that rivals any live action on every level. Bravo!
