In the far future, the last robot left on an abandoned Earth embarks on an amazing adventure. Animated sci-fi saga from Pixar, the makers of Ratatouille, The Incredibles and Toy Story Pixar redefined the concept of the animated movie thanks to an astounding run of films. Even with their impressive track record, Pixar have pulled off something truly special with WALL-E. Had it been produced by any other company, this might simply have been a fun but forgettable adventure in the style of 2005`s colourful CGI romp Robots. Instead we`ve ended up with something that`s both a joyous comedy and a spiritual successor to intelligent 1970s sci-fi epics like Silent Running.
An environmental fable, WALL-E tackles some surprisingly dark themes, while forsaking the rapid-fire, pop-culture laced dialogue of modern CG `toons. Instead, WALL-E embraces the spirit of silent cinema, with minimal dialogue, characters communicating through bleeps or brief phrases, and beautifully observed physical humour that plays like a crazy mix of Star Wars, Charlie Chaplin, Jacques Tati and Buster Keaton.
