Did You Know?


According to the directors' commentary track on the DVD, the first scene of the entire film, in which stones are used to introduce the viewers to the Bionicle myth and explain the basic knowledge, was in fact the last scene to be animated and a last-minute addition. See more »


Takanuva orders Hahli to "summon the Matoran", but when she returns, she is only bringing with her the Toa and the Turaga, but no Matoran. The reason for this is that originally, all of the island's citizens (the Matoran) would have followed her underground, but the ending of the movie was changed during production. For some reason, Takanuva's line wasn't corrected. 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 »

10/10 It's Okay
23 January 2016 | by (Alberta, Canada) – See all my reviews

Basically LOTR with Bionicle. The animation is a bit cheap yet oddly charming. The many character's range from annoying to cliché to surprisingly good. As a kid this was my favorite anime. My favorite Toa was the red one because he had those two fire swords he could use as a surfboard. My least favorite Toa was the rock one because who the hell wants power over rocks you already have a Toa of Earth and rocks are apart of the Earth what the hell just fuse the two together. Actually wait after reading the Wiki the rock one is way better than the earth one because all the earth one does is control the soil. What the heck kind of power is that? Hey wait a minute there's also a water Toa and an ice Toa... What the hell Lego ice isn't even an element it's quite literally just water that got too cold.

Anyways give this a watch it taught me many things as a kid like how sand and fire makes glass.
