From Amazon.co.uk

Pixar genius reigns in this funny romantic comedy, which stars a robot who says absolutely nothing for a full 25 minutes yet somehow completely transfixes and endears himself to the audience within the first few minutes of the film. As the last robot left on earth, Wall-E (voiced by Ben Burtt) is one small robot--with a big, big heart--who holds the future of Earth and mankind squarely in the palm of his metal hand. He's outlasted all the "Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class" robots that were assigned some 700 years ago to clean up the environmental mess that man made of earth while man vacationed aboard the luxury spaceship Axiom. Wall-E has dutifully gone about his job compacting trash, the extreme solitude broken only by his pet cockroach, but he's developed some oddly human habits and ideas. When the Axiom sends its regularly scheduled robotic EVE probe (Elissa Knight) to earth, Wall-E is instantly smitten and proceeds to try to impress EVE with his collection of human memorabilia. EVE's directive compels her to bring Wall-E's newly collected plant sprout to the captain of the Axiom and Wall-E follows in hot pursuit. Suddenly, the human world is turned upside down and the Captain (Jeff Garlin) joins forces with Wall-E and a cast of other misfit robots to lead the now lethargic people back home to earth. Wall-E is a great family film with the most impressive aspect being the depth of emotion conveyed by a simple robot--a machine typically considered devoid of emotion, but made so absolutely touching by the magic of Pixar animation. Also well-worth admiring are the sweeping views from space, the creative yet disturbing vision of what strange luxuries a future space vacation might offer, and the innovative use of trash in a future cityscape. Underneath the slapstick comedy and touching love story is a poignant message about the folly of human greed and its potential effects on earth and the entire human race. --Tami Horiuchi, Amazon.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming 5 May 2010
By R. A. Caton TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
If you are going to get Wall-E (and you should, oh yes you should) get the two disc edition... it's an odd wrapper, cardboard with bits that slide out, one per side each containing one disc.
I'm (unfortunately) prone to watching the extras before the main feature - and that's why you want the two discer because the extras on this one are good. Mind you, the two bonus shorts on the main disc - BURN-E and PRESTO! are both good too. BURN-E has a story about a poor maintenance robot that takes place in parallel with the main film...
PRESTO is a tale presented in the style of the classic Disney shorts of the 50's... superb CGI animated tale of a magician and his (hungry!) rabbit sidekick. You'll see what magic props are needed to do the old rabbit-out-of-a-hat routine and the dire consequences of their misuse....
There is a documentary that shows how Ben Burtt (sound craftsman on Star Wars as well) builds up the sonic landscape that adds verisimilitude to the main feature... how sounds can be sought, and simulated by amazing Heath Robinson-esque gadgets - something Disney's have done since the '30s, and we see some veteran pieces of kit dating back to before "The Reluctant Dragon", their use, and examples of sound-to-picture from classic Disney shorts.
All in all a superb little feature and worth seing.
The film itself? a heatwarming tale of robot love and self sacrifice, almost dialogue free but with a sonic landscape that is the aural equivalent of 3D. I enjoyed it a lot more than UP I can tell you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece of Cinematic Animation 9 Aug 2008
Format:Blu-ray
Each time I have seen a film from Pixar Studio, I have been impressed not only with its animation, but excellent plot too. This time, however, Pixar Studio has rendered a true cinematic animation masterpiece, one which should be recognized as memorable as the great Walt Disney films of the 1930s and 1940s. A masterpiece which ought to appeal to kids of all ages. In "Wall - E" Pixar has a spellbinding example - maybe the first - of a romantic science fiction thriller that lacks a dull moment, even though much of the film lacks substantial dialogue. So who cares whether the robot Wall - E can speak fluent English; audiences will recognize him as an admirable and lovable creature, whose very actions remind me at least of Charlie Chaplin's dull-witted tramp (Indeed, I wouldn't be surprised at all if this was the intention of Pixar Studio's animators and writers.).

Centuries after humanity has fled a severely over-polluted Earth for the relatively clean sanctuary of interstellar space, Wall - E toils alone as the very last trash compactor robot, in the deserted ruins of what seems to be New York City. Then one day Wall - E's fate is literally sent from the Heavens, with the arrival of a strange new robot. What follows will truly delight the hearts and cheer the souls of children of all ages. Older "children" may grasp some of the subtle sociological and political references scattered throughout the film, but younger ones will recognize that this is a film focused primarily on the themes of friendship, love and romance. A film that I am certain is destined to become a major landmark in the annals of cinematic animation; one that is a masterpiece already.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superlative Blu-ray For A Modern Masterpiece 1 Dec 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Love, loneliness, hope, loss and rediscovery are just some of the themes explored in WALL E, another surefire hit from the team at Pixar. Probably my favourite Pixar film, it never fails to make me smile.

Primarily aimed at kids but with more than enough smarts and humour to charm adults this is THE perfect family film for our modern times.

WALL E is a happy little load lifting waste compactor robot living on a now adandoned and polluted Earth who unwittingly becomes the catalyst for a rebirth of humanity. Finding friendship and maybe even love along the way WALL E will touch your heart and make you laugh at his madcap adventure on Earth and then in space. Beautifully written, animated and directed this is undoubtedly a modern masterpiece of film making and a future classic.

Pixar are never mean with their selection of extras but this Blu-ray sets a new standard for me. 2 commentary tracks which are both well worth your time. One has us one on one with the director Andrew Stanton which is a joy to listen to, providing an in depth disection of everything relating to the making of the film. The other commentary track is a Blu-ray exclusive and is labelled as a 'geek track/trash talk' with 4 of the peeps from Pixar and its great stuff too. Very geeky, quite funny and another great listen this is also a worthy inclusion and something Id like to see more of.

Theres a fairly short making of WALL E featurette but its still interesting to watch. We get BURN E and PRESTO, (2 animated shorts) BnL animated shorts, interactive videogames, (yes, really!!!) a tour of the ship from the film, deleted scenes plus more.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute Joy... 3 Oct 2008
By BD VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Ladies and Gentlemen, this is a classic.

Welcome to the world of Wall-e (Waste Allocation Lifter Earth-Class) the loveable robot. The plot (far from weak) circles around the sole surviving example of a machine deployed to clear the planet of the mess that mankind has made of it, whilst the human race left the planet with a plan to return once the mess was gone. This plan has however failed leaving Wall-e to continue with the task on his own. A rubbish clearing robot with caterpillar tracks for feet that lives in a container collecting human artefacts, is hardly the profile of a hero to save the world but then I guess that is the point.

Speaking as somebody who doesn't consider themselves a tree hugger, I can see how the ecological message aspects of this film may rub some people up the wrong way, but the subtle messages about corporate domination and pollution throughout this film make their point well, and in my view this part of the film was very good.

Technically the animation is in a word stunning. I had to remind myself at times that I was watching animation the quality is that good. Wall-e surpasses any other animated film I have seen in this regard.

It is easy to dismiss this film as a film for children, but honestly Wall-e entertained and moved me in ways that I didn't expect, and my Partner was in tears at the end with a classic Disney ending. This for me is film of the year 2008. Not much in this or any other genre has come close.
