Consensus: Wall-E's stellar visuals testify once again to Pixar's ingenuity, while its charming star will captivate younger viewers -- and its timely story offers thought-provoking subtext.

I wonder a little what kids will make of the long silence of the first half followed by the disorienting mania of the second, but there's nothing here that's not wonderfully imagined and lovingly presented.

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.

Glenn Kenny

Although Wall-E ends with a very apt and moving nod to City Lights, it is in fact Pixar's answer to Modern Times-both a bravura summation of everything the studio is great at and a "You ain't seen nothing yet!" statement of purpose.

Among its many wondrous achievements, the animated WALL-E is a sci-fi trifecta: a vision of the future, a tale for our times and a blast from the past.

You'd have to be a machine for your heart not to melt.

If Wall-E has anything original to say, it takes place in the first 30 minutes on a planet heaped high with junk. But the parallels between fiction and reality are almost too painful to contemplate.

The most consistent production unit in Hollywood just hit another home run.

Rolling Stone

No movie can be a downer that fills you with pure exhilaration. You leave WALL-E with a feeling of the rarest kind: that you've just enjoyed a close encounter with an enduring classic.

Annie Wagner
The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

Yeah, Pixar movies are usually good, but this one's unimaginably great.

Pixar manages to hit a grand slam yet again in what is one of the best animated movies of all time.
Matthew Samuel Mirliani
Quite touching and entertaining, Wall-E is not the masterpiece some claim it to be, but it is another remarkable film from Pixar all the same.
KJ Proulx
"Wall-E" is not just your average loveable Pixar film, but it also has the brains and a realistic tone to go along with it. As a world is stripped of… More
