3 stars (out of 4)
Everything critics of this movie say is in there is in there. We’re destroying the planet. Wal-Martification will render the government and big business a single, corrupt entity. We’ll become tubby chair-dwellers sucking all our meals from Slurpee cups.
If you see a lot of movies, as I do, you learn to roll your eyes and ignore this Hollywood pap. The question becomes: does the movie succeed in spite of the middle-school message?
Yes. WALL-E is a visual stunner, as expected from Pixar. The adventure plot actually features a twist or two, and the love story is charming.
