WALL-E Reviews

  • It whisks you to another world, then makes it every inch our own.

    Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly

  • It is, undoubtedly, an earnest (though far from simplistic) ecological parable, but it is also a disarmingly sweet and simple love story, Chaplinesque in its emotional purity.

    A.O. Scott — New York Times

  • Does Andrew Stanton's film amount to much more than a brilliant aesthetic exercise? I'm not convinced it does.

    Xan Brooks — Guardian [UK]

  • Who would guess that a movie with minimal dialogue and a love story between robots could emerge as one of the best films of the summer? And who would think a tale could be both post-apocalyptic and charming?

    Claudia Puig — USA Today

  • A jewel of a film in conception, execution and message.

    John Anderson — Washington Post

  • The best American film of the year to date.

    Ty Burr — Boston Globe

  • A film that's both breathtakingly majestic and heartbreakingly intimate.

    Robert Wilonsky — Village Voice

  • This latest achievement from Disney's Pixar Studios rotates around a rusty little robotic hero who's built, as the movie is, with such emotion, brains and humor that whole universes exist in his whirring tones and binocular eyes.

    Joe Neumaier — New York Daily News

  • I must drop my inhibitions about dropping the M word -- especially since I've already used magnificent -- and call WALL-E the masterpiece that it is.

    Joe Morgenstern — Wall Street Journal

  • Dangerously close to the sublime, a film that will be dissected and enjoyed for years to come.

    Chris Vognar — Dallas Morning News

  • His intelligence may be artificial, but his heroism is anything but superficial.

    Lisa Kennedy — Denver Post

  • The new Pixar picture Wall-E is one for the ages, a masterpiece to be savored before or after the end of the world -- assuming, like the title character, you're still around when all the humans have taken off and have access to an old video player.

    David Edelstein — New York Magazine

  • WALL-E is a classic, but it will never appeal to people who are happy with art only when it has as little bite as possible.

    David Denby — New Yorker

  • Pixar's WALLE succeeds at being three things at once: an enthralling animated film, a visual wonderment and a decent science-fiction story.

    Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times

  • It's remarkable to see any film, in any genre, blend honest sentiment with genuine wit and a visual landscape unlike any other.

    Michael Phillips — Chicago Tribune

  • Finding Nemo director Andrew Stanton tops himself with this adorably loopy Pixar animation that sends up consumerism, musicals, Apple computers, and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    Andrea Gronvall — Chicago Reader

  • The attention to detail -- always a Pixar hallmark -- is amazing, and Stanton and his crew incorporate surprising elements that mix vintage sci-fi with old musicals with a meta-cartoon rendering of the future.

    Steven Rea — Philadelphia Inquirer

  • Continuing a string of successes that pit Pixar films against only other Pixar films in terms of quality animation, WALLE makes the count nine masterpieces in a row.

    Colin Covert — Minneapolis Star Tribune

  • This is a film that stretches the expectations and reaches of animation at the same time it offers fantastic entertainment value to its audience.

    Tom Long — Detroit News

  • The animation is stunning; the landscapes of the futuristic Earth offer the Pixar folks ample opportunity to show off their wares.

    Bill Goodykoontz — Arizona Republic
