Wall-E Review

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

January 3, 2009 Wall�E Film Review I was very excited about seeing Wall�E for many reasons. The first reason was the superb animation quality in the trailers, which I assumed would be in the film. In addition, the second reason was that this is a Pixar film, a company at the helm of animated beauty and quality, not to mention the humour enough to make both children and adults alike laugh like drains. If Pixar wanted to say that they were the best animation company in the history of cinema, nobody would argue. Richard Brunton, Filmstalker "Pixar, a company who have produced some wonderful animated stories that really are filled with personality and humour, humour that doesn't just appeal to children." ...read more.

Then we see an extreme long shot of Wall�E, happily scurrying about while show-tunes from the musical "Hello! Dolly." set a sense that this film will be abnormal and quirky, yet a masterpiece nevertheless. Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal "This magnificent animated feature from Pixar starts on such a high plane of aspiration, and achievement, that you wonder whether the wonder can be sustained. But yes, it can." Characters: The characters are in all a lively bunch, ranging from the iPod resembling EVE, with sleek seamless contours and a shiny white plastic exterior (is it a coincidence that Pixar's co-founder Steve Jobs is CEO of Apple?). Strangely enough, there is a pink cylindrical makeup artist robot used on the human ship to apply makeup quickly although it doesn't settle just for customers, it applies makeup to anything it sees human or not as Wall�E found out. ...read more.

Conclusion

(Which the team behind Wall�E disputed over for a long time!) Sukhdev Sandhu, The Telegraph "I'm focusing on the daring and bravery of the first half of the film because I must confess to feeling a little under whelmed by it's more conventional, action-led second half. The human beings are too grotesque, shorn of the idiosyncrasies that Brad Bird afforded his baddie restaurateurs in last year's Ratatouille." The less magic bit: Yes, I am afraid that what Sukhdev from 'The Telegraph' says is true; the second half reverts to the adventure filled, less potent and emotive side of children's cinema and truly shoots itself in the foot. If only they had managed to keep the same magic, the same pizzazz that the first half hour had to offer then this film would be in everyone's DVD collection. ...read more.

    In the sad or slow-moving scenes, a slow, gradually building song is played quietly in the background. A good example is the last scene, where Bella and Edward are slow-dancing at prom, 'Flightless Bird' by Iron and Wine is the song they are dancing to and it really, lets the balloon down after the 'fight' scene.
