WALL-E is the charming tale of a small robot that is tasked with job of cleaning up a polluted Earth that humans have destroyed and then abandoned. It’s more than a sweet homage to silent film and science fiction. The love story is innocent and lovely, but the bond between Wall-e and Eve is deep and powerful, evidenced as they share moments of cinematic beauty.
Wall-e then goes the extra mile, providing a thought-provoking commentary about a society that is obsessed with material comforts. It’s a glimpse into the future we're heading towards in real life.
When I heard that Pixar was making a movie about a robot, I expected it to be quirky and cute. It was so much more.
