In the 29th century, WALL-E, a lonely waste disposal robot, is tasked with cleaning up the deserted planet Earth. One day, WALL-E runs into a probe robot named EVE and ends up aboard a starliner with the remaining humans, who have turned into lazy and morbidly obese drones. Pixar Studios have often broken new ground in terms of storytelling and computer graphics, but this environmental animation is one their grimmest and boldest releases. The stunning and practically dialogue-free first half is unlike anything else out there. The second half in space is entertaining and thought-provoking in a different way, but perhaps not as original.
