Pixar has taken animation to a whole new level with Wall-E. A few minutes into the movie and you quite forget that every frame portrays a make-believe world and that the cute wide-eyed lonely creature that's tugging at your heart is just a sketch!
The movie is set way into the future - at a time where humans have fled the earth and all that remains is gigantic piles of junk. And the only living thing on this deserted planet is a squat, droopy, binocular-eyed robot, Wall-E [with the voice of Benjamin Burtt]. He is the last of his kind. He and others like him were created and sent to earth on a clean up mission - to rid the earth of harmful pollutants. But over the years, the task grew insurmountable and soon his companions lost out. However, Wall-E is relentless. He goes about his job with a religious sincerity, hopeful that it will one day pay off.
