Another delightful animation produced by Pixar Animation Studios. It follows the story of a robot named WALL-E who is designed to clean up a polluted Earth. 700 years after he was set off to do this enormous job with thousands of other robots, he is the only one still operating; still in a dreadfully toxic planet. After falling in love with another robot named EVE, he follows her into outer space to ultimately fulfill his true purpose.
Very little spoken in the first half of the movie may make it a little tedious for younger children – however my three and five year old were delighted the whole way through and we have watched it twice! A few scenes which may concern small or sensitive children, but no outward violence with most gripping scenes being chase sequences.
Amusing, heartwarming with a wonderful environmental message interlinking social commentary on the direction of our wasteful and disassociated society.
4 stars from this family.
