Our Score
The Oscar-winning writer/director of Finding Nemo, Andrew Stanton, serves up another treat with this enchanting animated tale about a lonely robot. WALL-E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-class) is programmed to continually compress rubbish, a job that remains unfinished several hundred years after the human race has left the Earth. WALL-E gets some relief from this solitary existence with the arrival of EVE (Extraterrestrial Vegetation Evaluator), a probe-droid that comes looking for signs of life. Love-struck, he follows EVE back to her mother ship where humans once again threaten to spoil the mood. Classic moments abound here, such as a zero-gravity dance, WALL-E hitching a ride through space and, rather aptly, our mechanoid hero sticking out in a line-up of soulless automatons. Stanton creates a haunting sense of WALL-E's isolation in the early scenes on an eerie, unpopulated Earth and is well served by a voice cast that includes Sigourney Weaver and Pixar regular John Ratzenberger. But this is a film that offers much more than a cast of A-List actors delivering wisecracks at warp speed. This is a movie with genuine heart.


In the far future, waste collection robot WALL.E is the only unit left to clean up a desolate and dilapidated Earth. But when a survey droid arrives to search for any signs of life, WALL.E is lovestruck and hitches a ride on the spaceship sent to collect her, embarking on a journey that could determine the future of the human race. Pixar animated sci-fi adventure, with the voices of Ben Burtt, Elissa Knight, Jeff Garlin, Fred Willard and Sigourney Weaver.
