'WALL-E' review by Michael Phillips

by Chicago Tribune • 102,179 views

An animated space adventure featuring WALL-E, the last robot on Earth.

"it's not perfect"? What do you mean it's not perfect?! God damn movie critics always trying to sound smarter then the rest of humanity. This movie is flawless!

It amazes me more and more of how so many "Educated" people can be so severely duped into loving a movie because it is aesthetically fantastic. Watch the movie again, and this time pay attention to the plot a little bit more, and see what it is telling both kids and adults. Admire it for its artistic value, and creativity, but mark it for what it is. Regardless of your political affiliation, this movie is pure and simply propaganda.

To all of you saying "5 stars, not 4!", a movie rating is only out of 4 stars, so it would be impossible for it to get a 5. He gave it a perfect rating, so stop complaining.

Wall-e was awesome! It's amazing how pixar can keep coming up with original, entertaining movies!

I saw more emotion coming from those two robots than I have from most actors in romantic movie scenes (they certainly out-acted anakin and padme from star wars)... fantasic job by the animators!!!

Actually, I hate to burst your bubble, but Wall-E is NOT a childrens movie. It's rated G, but it is a movie for all ages, not just for children. The emotions run deeper then most kids can comprehend, which makes it so beautiful.

A computer-generated kids movie about robots also just happens to be one of the greatest love stories ever told. Who knew?

i kind of liked how the contact sort of sparked Wall-e's memory. The sad ending would have been great as well, but the ending they went with was definately more child-friendly. Plus I think it sort of captured the idea of hope that the movie seemed to be going for.

There is much truth to what you are saying, however I believe you are missing a fundamental truth about the very idea of storytelling. From the most primitive tribal cultures to the modern world of today, every storyteller has used their stories to convey a feeling and/or a message that they feel is worth conveying. What matters is how you yourself interpret those feelings and ideas. You may watch this film and see it as critical of humanity and technology, but I see the other side of it:

It would be interesting to see Wall-E not remember and just go on his way, but the current ending IS better. Do you really want to leave the movie theater feeling like you could kill yourself? I don't think so. And yes, the sad ending would be like the Lion King all over again, where the dad dies and the children cry. I know my sister did when she saw it. Ran out saying 'You can't kill the daddy! You can't!!'

"Not perfect"? Best. Movie. EVER! Prove me wrong, people.

This film is also supportive of technology, after all, the main character is a product of the technological age. I believe the underlying message of this film is to remind everyone that there is beauty in even the smallest things in life, and to show that we must never be too distracted by our gadgets and gizmos that we forget what truly makes life worth living: the human spirit. If we do not take care of ourselves and our home, we lose that which makes life worth living. Is that a bad moral?

Funny, I thought the first part of the movie was the best. Seeing how Wall-e spent all that time alone with his little quirks like the way he collected stuff and his pet really makes you fall in love with him. It was all good though. It's basically a love story so if you don't like that then you're not going to like the movie.

Propaganda is a concerted set of messages aimed at influencing the opinions or behaviors of large numbers of people. As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda in its most basic sense presents information in order to influence its audience. Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or gives loaded messages in order to....

That's kind of the point of the movie. It's showing an exaggerated human evolution. (Not in a bad way) Wall-E (the robot) is supposed to be the last trace of anything humane, as portrayed by his liking of specific objects, the music, and especially love. Pixar does it again :D

this film has got to be one of the greatest of animation films made! if your an animation geek like me you'll realise what a breakthrough it really is, with the crazy crazy crazy amounts of detail! and the new live action style of filming with the brilliant natural camera-man like shots and the awesome play on focusing and light. not to mention the dust particles and the garbage, and all the mechanics of everything robotic! oh and the epic storyline and the huge personalities from wall e! 6stars

As a Browncoat, a Fan of Joss Whedon's "Firefly" and "Serenity", I found a lot to love in WALL*E. The CGI effects are very similar to the ground-breaking way Firefly was filmed; The Hand-held Camera Effect, catching the shot late or slightly off-kilter, adjusting focus late (the shopping cart scene)... all Firefly/Serenity techniques. And the plot! "Earth that was could not sustain us, we were so messy" lol. And... "Have you ever BEEN with a warrior woman?" lol. All familiar to Firefly Fans. :o)

Ratotoulle was a good movie, I will admit, but the whole Linguini being a 'love-child' was a bit too mature, and just threw a stone in the smooth ride I was having. I still love that movie, though.

I'm 18 and I liked the movie, but i wouldn't rate it though, its not the same feeling to watch a movie than when you were a kid. So my judgement may be a little off

Charlie Chaplain's longest film was less than an hour long. WALL-E would be a good movie if it was shorter (like the magician short before the movie), but the cute romantic comedy shtick wore thin half-way through the movie.

I took my kids last night to see wall-E, and they aren't taumatized by the ending, it has a happy one by the way. They loved the movie. Good job Pixar.

Great movie. The musical score and visuals match perfectly. Very well executed and deeply moving. I was "whoa'd" by The Dark Knight. I was moved by this. 10/10

That's a very good explanation for any negative reviews this movie gets, in addition to the knee-jerk conservatives who seem to be looking for things to hate. I'm a right-wing conservative who wishes I could vote for Bush for a 3rd term and I loved WALL-E because it's a brilliant use of the cinematic artform starring lovable robotic characters who capture the most simple, profound aspects of human emotion in ingenious ways.

This is the best movie i've ever seen. Amazing, beautiful, good movie. Machines emotions, mimics and gesticulation make the heroes alive so you don't interpret them like it's a robots. It's alive creatures with the soul. This is a great movie. Thanks every man who did it! :)

Wall-E and Eve became one of my all-time favorite movie couples. That movie was amazing. Don't blame Stanton if the scenario for his robot made you all think he was trying to force environmental issues down your throat. It was just the setting for his robot, that's all. If he'd really wanted to push that, he'd have made the humans the villains.

@mar10ssj1 guys. when will you learn that there are only 4 stars. 4 stars is the highest, not 5.
Report spam or abuse
The problem is, is that Wall-E is better then any film that will be created for years to come. Of course, if Pixar makes another film, that'll be a different story. But most films created are all about sex, and that isn't enjoyable. Not one bit.
