A film about some humans living on a spaceship, and a nice little robot who is trying to clean their planet - who still wishes to save them and his love - another robot. A film about humans who eat their meals out of cups and can't walk. A film about us - 700 years in the future. Correction: 700 years in the inevitable future.
If Pixar was an actor and decided to retire with a final bow, Wall-E would be its last hurrah. Not only is Wall-E their most ambitious project yet, but its also their most human project. What makes Wall-E as real or “live-action” as any other film is in its simplicity and complexity when dealing with human nature. Every Pixar film to date has had a deep social message embedded inside. The outside may be a film made for kids or youngsters and until Wall-E arrived Pixar was very very good and ahead of the competition; but with Wall-E Pixar became the indisputable leader in filmmaking and storytelling. Never before has a film so easily pointed out our flaws and shortcomings, while still giving us hope that we can change.
