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

Makuta, the main antagonist, is portrayed in these films as a rather ordinary, average villain bent on conquering the population of Metru Nui with his motives never being fully explored. Feeling that his portrayal made him hard to take seriously, BIONICLE story writer Greg Farshtey decided to rewrite his personality entirely in his later books, explaining his relatively easy defeats in these films.

Goofs

Some characters have less detail in certain scenes. Most noticeably, Vakama's mask appears slightly blocky in some shots, while it is more smooth in others (look at the rim on the back of his mask). See more »

Crazy Credits

Near the end of the credits, many gag titles are written in Bionicle writing. When decoded, they read: Best Matoran, Location Scouts, Asst to Mr Makuta, Set Doctor, Nivawk Handler, Gaffer, Vahki Transport Captain, Security for Metru Nui, Master Builders, Stunt Riders, Stunt Doubles for Matau and Kikanalo Wranglers.

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
