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

Nidhiki was originally envisioned with two short horns on his head. They abandoned these to make him look more like the toy. See more »

Goofs

When the Vahki are running toward the Toa in the tunnel, for a couple of frames a strange rectangle rises from the bottom right half of the screen that "blots out" the dust. See more »

User Reviews

If you felt Mask of Light was made for 3 year olds, this will fix you.
4 November 2004 | by (Pennsylvania, USA) – See all my reviews

Let's face it. The first Bionicle movie was insultingly "kiddy". Even toddlers watching it had to rethink if they were too old to be included inside the intended target audience. Not this sequel. Where violence occurred off-screen in the first movie, this has it right out in the open. You have projectile and physical attacks. You have kidnapping, scary moments, hopeless moments, brave moments. You have drama that's adequate enough for an adult, but not way over the head of a child. My main gripe with the movie is not even with the movie itself. It's that the character designers went WAY too far outside merely updating the toys to work as CGI objects. Their redesign of Nivawk for example resulted in a character who has no toy counterpart. So if your kid is jumping up and down for you to buy "the cool, purple bat guy with blue wings", good luck. You will NOT find it in the toy store. Not looking anything like the one in the movie anyway.

Back on subject: Great effects, great story, well executed. Not too scary for nightmares, but not so kiddy it's embarrassing. WORTH YOUR MONEY. -JINZONINGEN 73
