What if mankind had to leave Earth, and somebody forgot to turn off the last robot? This is the premise behind Wall-E, the latest comedy adventure from the inventive storytellers and technical geniuses at Pixar Animation Studios (The Incredibles, Cars, Ratatouille). The story, told by Academy Award®-winning writer-director Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo), concerns a determined robot named WALL-E, left behind to clean up the planet after the last humans have left.
After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, WALL-E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) has developed his very own personality. He discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he encounters--and becomes enamoured with--a sleek search robot named EVE. WALL-E and EVE travel across the galaxy and set into motion one of the most exciting and imaginative comedy adventures ever brought to the big screen. Joining WALL-E on his fantastic journey across a universe of never-before-imagined visions of the future is a hilarious cast of characters, including a pet cockroach and a heroic team of malfunctioning misfit robots.
Filled with surprises, action, humour and heart, WALL-E also features original and innovative sound design by Academy Award®-winner Ben Burtt, the man responsible for the voice of R2D2 in Star Wars (as well as work on E.T. and Indiana Jones).
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.comSee all Product description

I am not usually persuaded easily, but I literally fell in love with this movie. It had been recommended by someone at work who shares my love of sci fi, it looked like a kids film I wasn't expecting too much from it I was just hoping it was fairly amusing, and not too much aimed at a younger audience.
Wow, what a lovely surprise, I take my hat of to Pixar and Disney, this is an instant classic and reminiscent of ET, which I thought was ok but didn't really love. For a film where there practically no dialogue for the first half, just those sweet lens which form Wall E eyes and the cute little noises he makes which convey so much it is still so watchable. I loved the way Wall E disappeared into his shell when scared, I felt he had somewhat of a little puppy feel to him at times.
The sentiment of the story was so simple with Wall E falling in love with a visiting robot on the deserted Earth he is trying to clean up. It is this meeting that leads to his voyage to her home and, his loveliness that eventually affects the destiny of everyone on board.
I will be buying this immediately, and watching it whenever I feel really cynical.
It is fun, unique and enjoyable to watch. My 5 and 2 year old loves it and can sit through it start to finish without moving.
I think Wall-E is a great character and is very loveable (so my wife says!)
Definitely one of Disney's best films
Great to watch with family and friends
As other reviews complained about the quality of the DVD I would recommend hiring it from amazon video (which I did).
I've bought it in the past for friends; most people I know who have seen this film adore it!
It's a portrayal of Earth that people could easily see happening, which makes it slightly scary to think about, but you soon forget it once immersed in this masterpiece. A film that can make you laugh, cry and honestly root for the protagonists is a keeper in my eyes. I particularly liked the unorthodox Disney villain!
The most adorable thing about the film was that all Wall-E wanted was to hold Eve's hand. I could watch this film again and again, and won't be surprised if I end up buying another copy when my brother wears this one out.
As a bonus you get the Pixar short presto one of the funniest of the shorts produced so far. Along with a further shorts and straight to this DVD stuff related to the film. As usual there are so many extras on this two disc set you won't find yourself putting this down for some time.
