The highly acclaimed director of Finding Nemo and the creative storytellers behind Cars and Ratatouille transport you to a galaxy not so far away for a new cosmic comedy adventure about a determined robot named WALL·E.
After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, the curious and lovable WALL·E discovers a new purpose in life when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. Join them and a hilarious cast of characters on a fantastic journey across the universe.
Transport yourself to a fascinating new world with Disney·Pixar's latest adventure, now even more astonishing on DVD and loaded with bonus features, including the all-new animated short film BURN·E. WALL·E is a film your family will want to enjoy over and over again.
The first couple of times that I watched this film, I was completely enamoured of the scenes that strictly involved WALL·E, Eve, Mo and the other robots - which are adorable, magical and fun - but found the scenes involving the humans somehow lacking. However, I have found that the film improved with repeated viewings and that it carries an important message about consumerism, the environment, and the need to look around us and think for ourselves.
Still, this is not Pixar's best work - and falls short of the masterpiece that was last year's Ratatouille - but it is a film that is definitely a must-watch (also be sure to watch the animated shorts "Presto" and "BURN·E").
