'WALL-E' Movie Review

Wall-e stands for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth Class, just thought you should know.

'Wall-e' is directed by Andrew Stanton and it stars Ben Burtt, Elissa Knight, Jeff Garlin, Fred Willard, John Ratzenberger, Kathy Najimy and Sigourney Weaver.
You have never met a character so unique and pleasant to watch unlike Wall-e. I'd say that you could
have a lot of fun and feel so much in this subtle film than you would in any recent blockbuster that could be trashing your local cinema today.
'Wall-e' is about a robot named.....well....Wall-e. He is the only living machine that is well and truly alive on Earth. Wall-e lives his life day in and day out collecting rubbish(as that's the reason why he was first created) and turning them into blocks, so much so that he can build buildings with it. When all is well and average in the day of a life of Wall-e, so to speak, a visitor is welcomed to his world that leads him to discover a whole lot more about himself and the world he lives in.

As mentioned before the character Wall-e is nothing like you've seen before. He's adorable and extremely likeable, there's nothing to hate(unless you're just not into that stuff). Movies can go a long way where centralised characters can present an endearing kind of personality, and with any sort of obstacle that affects the protagonists plan can have us feel for them in very strong ways. The connection between our main characters where extremely touching and believable. Every moment spent with each other adds on importance to the plot with the chemistry between them working very well.

I would like to give the movie extra props not simply from the mysterious and well thought out opening we are introduced to but also from the fact it uses the ability to no dialogue to it's greatest advantage. Most of the movie has no dialogue, sure it has people talking but as to support and drive the characters forward it's all reliant on sound effects and actions to keep us interested. Don't know how, but upon first watching it I couldn't grasp and realise how this film was able to draw me so close to these characters. About half way through it just stunned me to how effective this movie really is.
There is no doubt that 'Wall-e' is an excellent movie, it strives with greatness through emotions and your deep connection with the protagonists and the fact that it can attract you even though a word is hardly said is a major plus. Pixar has given us another excellent piece of art that must be appreciated. It's no surprise Pixar has delivered another gem to their collection of masterpieces. Undoubtedly this is for everyone. Why? Because actions speak louder than words and you feel it in every scene.

My rating for the movie 'Wall-e' is a 9.5/10
