Did You Know?


There's a hidden cypher message when we see Kopaka's eye-view. These read: "PC TARAKAVA", "PC NUIRAMA" and "PC USSALCRAB". These are the names of certain Bionicle animals, but it is unclear exactly what they refer to. See more »


After Takanuva blasts the red Rahkshi, it disappears from subsequent shots. It's not shown disintegrating or vanishing any way, just standing there as energy surges through it, then it's simply gone. See more »


[first lines]
Turaga Vakama: Gathered friends, listen again to our legend, of the Bionicle. In a time, before time, the great spirit, Mata Nui, fell from the heavens, carrying we, the ones called the Matoran. We were separate, and without purpose, so the Great Spirit illuminated us with the three virtues: Unity, Duty, and Destiny!

Crazy Credits

Toward the end of the credits, a sentence written in Matoran script appears. It reads: "No Rahi were harmed in the making of this film". ("Rahi" is a term that refers to Mata-Nui's fauna.) See more »

Not bad at all for it's target audience
5 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

First I need to say that I know way more about Bionicles that any adult should. I have an autistic son and anyone who knows autism knows that obssessive compulsive behavior comes with it. Well, his obsession (one of them anyway) is Bionicle. I know their names, their skills, where they come from, you name it. You can't go into any room in my house without stepping on a Bionicle. Anyway, I of course had to get the dvd the day it came out and was as excited as my son to watch it. The animation is first rate for a direct-to-video movie. Of course it's not Pixar but it wasn't supposed to be. The storyline is somewhat juvenile and you definately need to know the backstory to know what the heck is going on but the target audience is juveniles who know the story. All in all I liked it. After repeated viewings I'm getting a little tired of it but my son and our other kids do enjoy it and I think it's a well made movie that delivers what it promises. It never claims to be more than it is and from what I've seen on tv and the web, they aren't trying to push it on anyone other than Bionicle fans. I have to give LEGO some credit for that. They know who is going to like it and they're happy with that.

If you or your kids like the toys then the movie is for you. If you don't, well, wait for Finding Nemo.
