Storyline

The legends tells the story of how the Toa came to be, chosen from the pool of Matoran youth in the great city of Metru Nui and, though physically transformed, hardly prepared for increased size and super heroic powers. Now in short order, the Toa--who babble and bicker like agitated adolescents--have to master their new gifts, impress their leader, and prepare to protect their home.

Trivia

Each of the Toa share the same basic body-type in this movie, the only exception being Nokama, the female Toa of Water. She seems to have what appears to be a cleavage, with the upper panel of her chest-plate missing. The pair of mechanical gears underneath also seem to more prominent than the ones of her male companions, even if smaller. While this doesn't make perfect sense in the BIONICLE world, it does help to make her gender instantly determinable. Recent years have seen rabid complaining among fans because the newer female Toa characters look rather masculine. See more »

Goofs

When Makuta tells Vakama that he could have "many destinies", the fog is barely moving. As it cuts to Vakama, the fog is moving faster. See more »

Crazy Credits

During the credits, the masks and heads of all the major characters (except for Krekka) are shown slowly fading into and out of view. See more »

as good as the 1st one,all things considered
10 June 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this second movie in the "Bionicle" series of movies is as good as the 1st one.the story is better,and there is more going on.also,the action is more intense and their is some humour here,which the 1st one didn't have.the animation is maybe a bit better,and the villain is a stronger,more developed character,at least i thought so.however,there are a few too many wise proverbs for my taste.after awhile it gets preachy and repetitive.the message of believing in yourself and "the journey of discovery" mantra,though a good message,is a bit heavy handed.this movie has not much to do with the 1st one.the characters are new,but similar to the previous movie.this movie is intended for a slightly older audience than the original,and there's nothing wrong with that.anyway,as i said,despite some problems,this movie is as good as the 1st one.to that end,i give "Bionicle 2:Legends of Metru-Nui" a 7/10
