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

After Vakama breaks the mask he's making and jumps back, there's visibly nothing on his worktable. After that, he picks up the masks's parts from the table. See more »

Crazy Credits

At the very end of the credit sequence, the eyes of Makuta's mask light up in gloomy, evil red. This is foreshadowing that although he's been defeated in the movie, he will return. See more »

Great Bionicle Movie
19 August 2006 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

It is a great Bionicle movie. With the advanced graphic and strong storyline, this movie give the message of responsibility, friendship , love and hope.

For example, the relationship between Vakama and Lhikan, the leadership and courage of Lhikan attracts me a lot.

But the battle of Makuta and Vakama and the training of using mask power are boring and weak, this is what I was disappointed.

And it should add some battle in the city, like Ko-metru and Ga-metru. You know, Metru Nui is a great city, but the battle always happened at subrub...
