"A genuine masterpiece"

— Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald

"A remarkable achievement"

— David Stratton, At the Movies (Australia)

"Pixar's robot romance is crazily inventive, deliriously engaging and emotionally true."

— Bob Mondello, NPR.org

"One of the most imaginatively made and individual pieces of work that the audacious Pixar has developed."

— Derek Malcolm, London Evening Standard

"Among its many wondrous achievements, the animated WALL-E is a sci-fi trifecta: a vision of the future, a tale for our times and a blast from the past."

— Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"It is a story about love and loneliness, perseverance and triumph, the possibilities and pitfalls of human existence. That this story is told by way of the exploits of a tiny, faceless robot only makes it more extraordinary."

— Christopher Orr, The New Republic

"Mixing Chaplinesque delicacy with the architectural grandeur of a Stanley Kubrick film, director Andrew Stanton recycles film history and makes something fresh and accessible from it without pandering to a young audience."

— Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail

"Although Wall-E ends with a very apt and moving nod to City Lights, it is in fact Pixar's answer to Modern Times-both a bravura summation of everything the studio is great at and a 'You ain't seen nothing yet!' statement of purpose."

— Glenn Kenny, MUBI

"The new Pixar picture Wall-E is one for the ages, a masterpiece to be savored before or after the end of the world -- assuming, like the title character, you're still around when all the humans have taken off and have access to an old video player."

— David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
