Cast / crew
| Wall·E (2008)
Wall·E has been busy cleaning up Earth in preparation for mankind’s return. His daily routine is interrupted by a sleek flying robot who has been left behind to look for something and Wall·E falls in love.
Wall·E is a movie that tries too hard for cute and is slightly over-animated, a failing that CG animated movies are a little susceptible to. It also has a significant character problem with the two robots falling in love. While Wall·E has developed a personality after 700 years on his own, Apple-inspired EVE shouldn’t have any personality at all (just like all Apple products) and it feels wrong when she does. On a rather more convincing note, Wall·E does deliver an unexpectedly damning environmental message with Earth laid to waste by conglomerate consumerism and the remaining survivors obliviously devolving on a propaganda-fuelled luxury space liner. Wall·E is entertaining and will keep the children quiet but adults will find the brilliant Bugs Bunny-esque preceding short Presto rather more fun and memorable.
This movie contains robot violence, unpleasant scenes.
