When I wrote my post about 'Kung Fu Panda', one of my friends suggested me to watch WALL-E as it was the best rated animation flick. I watched WALL-E very next day but waited to write this post till the release of WALL-E in India. Since WALL-E has been released in India last Friday, it's the perfect time for a post over it. This post may turn out as a comparison of WALL-E with Kung-Fu-Panda at times, so please bear with me.

Plot: Wall-E (short for Waste Allocation Lift Loader. Earth class) is the only one of his kind of robot left on earth after a botched attempt at trying to clean the earth that has been overrun with garbage. He developed a personality over 700 years, after humanity had deserted the planet for a "five-year" cruise in which they expected the multitude of Wall-E to clean and restore the planet to habitable conditions. One day, Eve(short for Extra-terrestrial Vegetation Evaluator), a sleek (and dangerous) reconnaissance robot, is sent to earth to find proof that life is once again sustainable. WALL-E falls in love with Eve. WALL-E rescues Eve from a dust storm and shows her a living plant he found amongst the rubble. Consistent with her "directive" Eve takes the plant and automatically enters a deactivated state except for a blinking green beacon. WALL-E, doesn't understand what has happened to his new friend, but true to his love, he protects her from wind, rain, and lightening, even as she is unresponsive. One day a massive ship comes to reclaim Eve, but WALL-E, out of love or loneliness hitches a ride on the outside of the ship to rescue Eve. The ship arrives back at a large space cruise ship, which is carrying all of the humans who evacuated earth 700 years earlier. The people of earth ride around this space resort on hovering chairs which give them a constant feed of TV and video chatting. They drink all of their meals through a straw out of laziness and/or bone loss, and are all so fat that they can barely move. When the auto-pilot computer, acting on hastily given instructions sent many centuries before, tries to prevent the people of earth from returning, by stealing the plant, WALL-E, Eve, the portly captain, and a band of broken robots stage a mutiny.

As far as the plot of movie(WALL.E) is concerned, it's amazing and may turn out to be true in late future. The direction and emotion emitted by the robots are just awesome. It's a perfect example of how action speaks louder than words. The protagonists of the movie are robots but the way they show their feeling to each other is just awesome, especially the love expressed by WALL-E to Eve, when he offers his beloved possessions to her. The way he protects Eve brings a smile on audience's face. Also the self repairing by WALL-E is great to see. It is easier for an human actor to show feelings but one should go only to Pixar to know how machines can express feelings. First half of movie is speechless except some mechanical sound by WALL.E and Eve but it is so well framed that audience are bound to watch every second of it. The movie is not only an animation but also it provides a message to save earth. I have never seen any animation flick with a message but this movie is a great work of animation with a message to mankind.

Look at this high quality trailer of WALL-E to get an idea about the movie and see a glimpse of a great animation work:

When I tried to compare WALL-E with Kung Fu Panda, I was just clueless. Both of these movies are a piece of excellence in itself. If there are hardly any word in WALL-E, a lot of chatting is a part of Panda. Kung-Fu-Panda is based on a Chinese story based of Kung-Fu while WALL-E is a nicely woven plat taking robots as protagonist. Both are awesome and must watch movies for animation lovers. I hope that such great work of animation will continue in future.

PS: I watched Kung-Fu-Panda again yesterday on my 32-inch LCD screen and loved it even more :)
