Wall-E is another awesome animated film from the guys and gals at Pixar. The only reason I wouldn’t give it 5 out of 5 stars is that I saw the Dark Knight on the same day.
This I think is the best overall film from Pixar as it takes you on a wonderful emotional journey of loneliness, friendship and love through to loss and then finally triumph.
With very little dialogue in the first 2/3’s of this film it relies heavily on the emotion that is portrayed in the expression and action. As you sit and watch Wall-E you connect with his character and quickly love him. He is funny, curious and completely endearing. The story is a well thought out flowing tale of humanity’s strengths and flaws. We are loving but we are consumers.
In the futuristic world we see in Wall-E, our drive for consumption has seemly overtaken our desire to connect with each other. Leading us to evacuate the Earth and travel the Galaxy endlessly and hopelessly. That is until a small robot finds love and hope for all.
