‘WALL-E’ is an unusual Pixar film, well the unusual is Pixar’s specialty when it comes to their imaginative features, as it has so little dialogue, yet it captures the emotion and characterisation through two polar opposites of robots.
WALL-E is a mobile garbage compactor, who is the last robot (and technically the only thing ‘alive’) on Earth, along with his cockroach friend. He shares a trait with Disney’s Ariel (‘The Little Mermaid’) as he loves to collect human made objects and inventions, storing them in his home, fascinated by the way humans move, interact and, of course, dance. Being lonely in a post-apocalyptic world, he wishes to find love, something uncommon when it comes to robots. But when a ship arrives, revealing a state-of-the-tech robot named Eve, WALL-E finds his romantic interest in her, despite Eve’s main directive to find anything living in this unstainable world.
‘WALL-E’ is a brilliant piece of film. It manages to capture the human spirit and characteristics in the film’s two leading robots and manages to display emotions and humour, with so little dialogue present.
The film is set in a futuristic world that displays messages of audience’s consumption from big companies and how media and technology have emerged in the way humans live.
‘WALL-E’ excels in every way. Animation, story, characters, emotion, humour, score. All checks.
‘WALL-E’ is out of this world.
