Wall-E Review

I took the kids to see Disney-Pixar's newest release Wall-E. They liked it, even though we saw the last movie of the night. Still, they managed to stay awake until almost 12am which means the film must have been good.

I don't want to give away any endings or spoil the movie for those of you who haven't seen it yet. Suffice it to say, the movie is very good. It'll make adults think and make kids question. I think you'll enjoy this movie even if you're not a science fiction fan.

The animation was of course stupendous. I was a little worried my kids wouldn't think of it as a cartoon it was so realistic. The story was great too. There's very little dialog in the first 30 minutes of the film, yet they managed to create a good story just by watching Wall-E go through his daily routine.

I found references to other classic scifi movies like 2001: A Space Odyssey, A.I., and The Matrix. I also thought the movie reminded me in some ways of Isaac Asimov's Foundation Series. But, I'll let you come to your own conclusions.

What I liked
The animation
The first 30-40 minutes
The story

What I didn't like
Some themes might be beyond little kids understanding

I don't have a rating system of my own, but if I did I would give it 4.5 out of 5 stars. Go see this movie.
