After being annoyed by this film's advertisements plastered all over public transit cars, I didn't really care to see it. But, a friend brought the DVD over one day and it turned out to be an excellent movie! For a "kid's" movie, it's quite innovative and sophisticated.
First off, the visuals in this film are incredible! The rich colors and textures are quite mesmerizing. Since it takes place in both a decaying, dirty, abandoned earth and aboard a sleek, shiny spaceship, there's a really nice contrast of scenery. And the skill level of the animators involved is something to be commended.
But, the visuals aren't the film's only strength. The story and characters are very well developed and interesting as well. Considering it's an animated film about two robots, its bursting with emotion and life. There are basically two stories going on throughout the film; Wall-e pursuing a love interest (Eve) and humanity's struggle to overcome a destructive path, due to lethargy.
That's why this film satisfies on so many levels. It draws you in with the beautiful imagery, the characters are lively and entertaining, and the story is meaningful. It's nice to see that this type of movie is out there, because the moral of it is particularly relevant to our society now and for future generations to come.
