WALL·E (2008)

Last weekend, I had a chance to watch four excellent Hollywood movies. Out of the 4, with what I shall start with?

Without any hesitation, “Wall-e"

The basic plot of the movie is that the Earth is spoiled (by human) and covered with wastes and trash in the 29th Century. Seven hundred years earlier, a company called “By N Large” (BNL) has taken over all business and government functions on Earth and evacuated all humans in a huge spaceship colony to fly through space until the earth is cleaned up by hundreds upon thousands of robots large & small called “WALL-E” (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class).

The evacuation and cleanup was supposed to take 5 years, but instead it took 700. All the WALL-E robots stop working except one.

This one robot, our small hero Wall-E continues to do his job with only the company of his pet cockroach until one day he makes a momentous discovery …of another lady robot EVA (Extraterrestrial Vegetation Searcher).

The movie becomes very interesting once Wall-e meets EVA and fell in love with her. It was perfectly conceptualized and presented. While it’s interesting, entertaining, and heartwarming, the big surprise is that we become totally involved with the film. At no stage, I felt it’s an animated movie.

Its environmental message and full of heart when it comes to its robot/ droid romance. Brilliant execution allows much of the communications throughout WALL-E to be wordless, with smartly used sound effects.

WALL-E is a robot movie with heart and soul. Everyone I know who’s watched it, loved it, regardless of their age or whether they usually dislike animated movies.

You must watch it :-D
