This is one of the cutest, most amazing animated movies I've seen. If you haven't seen it, watch it.

A strong kids movie with excellent world building. Stands on its own as science fiction as well.

Cute animated feature or one of the greatest science fiction movies ever made? Yes. Why can't it be both? It's also fun to see how many of the references to "2001: A Space Odyssey" there are (both in the movie and in one of the related shorts). Some have also claimed that this is a sci-fi retelling of the story of Adam and Eve, but apart from the name of the second-appearing robot and the fact that there's a "tree", I don't see it. Anyway, good movie.

THIS MOVIE WAS AMAZING!!! My soul went out to this little robot stuck on earth cleaning up the carnage left by humanity, making it hospitable again for life. It is an amazing way to teach both adults and children the dangers of plastic waste, garbage, and the inevitable future of destruction the lifestyle we lead will eventually create. There's something to be said about the way this movie carefully teaches people to take steps to make the earth stay beautiful and vibrant through the story of WALL*E.

To be perfectly honest with you here - I found WALL- E to be one of the most frightening little stories that I've seen in a mighty long time.

What bothered me the most about WALL- E 's story was how I found that it made light of what I consider to be a very-very serious situation that is facing mankind on this very planet right now - And that problem is how man deals with his ever-growing headache of garbage that he continually creates.

(*Spoiler Alert!*) - One of the most horrifying scenes in WALL- E was when the "search-craft" was leaving Earth's atmosphere (with Wall - E attached to it) and this rocket had to literally crash right through tons and tons of litter that was surrounding this planet.

Now, of course, this scene was an obvious exaggeration, but, believe me, folks, tons of garbage really is out there right now orbiting around this old planet of ours.

And, I guess (when it comes to this particular scene that I've just described) it all comes down to that well-known saying which goes like this - "Out of sight - Out of mind."

Who knew you could love a robot so much? WALL-E and EVE are adorable, and so much is accomplished with this movie in terms of storytelling and messaging with little to no dialog. One of my favorite Pixar films.

as life on earth seems dead... the people in space try to find a way to make earth a place were they can live

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 26, 2012

In 2805, Earth is covered in garbage due to decades of mass consumerism facilitated by the megacorporation Buy 'N Large. BnL evacuated Earth's population in fully automated starliners in 2105, leaving behind trash compactor Waste Allocation Load Lifter – Earth Class “WALL-E” robots to clean the planet, but they eventually stopped operating and Earth was left abandoned. One WALL-E unit has managed to remain active by repairing itself using parts from other broken units. It has also developed sentience, as with its regular duties it inquisitively collects artifacts of human civilization back to its storage truck home, has befriended a cockroach and enjoys listening to Hello, Dolly!
