Storyline

The Web of Shadows concerns the return of the heroic Toa to Metru Nui. There, they find an old enemy has overtaken the great city with the help of Visorak--robotic spiders that can quickly encase anything or anybody in near-indestructible webs. The Toa undergo a bizarre metamorphosis while sealed within strange cocoons, and emerge as clunky-looking machines made up of mismatched parts. Though horrified, they find that they also possess some new powers, which prove essential for their subsequent journey to restore Metru Nui--and themselves. This delightful Bionicle installment is probably easily accessible for any viewer unfamiliar with the series to date. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Did You Know?

Trivia

In the companion book and an early version of the script, Roodaka talks to the captured Makuta by riding a mutated Nui-Kopen (a kind of giant wasp) out to the sea to the body of Makuta. In the film however, she simply talks to a stone representing Makuta inside her chamber. Whether because of technical or financial difficulties or time restrains, the Nui-Kopen ride had to be neglected, but according to story writer 'Greg Farshtey', it is still considered to be canon.

Goofs

The "moons" (actually twin holes on the top of the cavern over the city) change positions between scenes. They're supposed to be directly above the Coliseum. See more »

Quotes

[Onewa breaks free from the wreckage of their ship]
Onewa: Well, that stunk.
Nuju: [coughs heavily] It would appear there was an error in our transport. Pilot error.
Matau: Hey! I was only order-taking. Vakama was the one order-giving.

Completely Underrated
19 December 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a completely nutty Bionicle fan who has managed to collect all the comics and most of the products as well as being a true member of the Kanoka club, I was looking forward to seeing the only Bionicle film I had not yet viewed. Of course, I already knew the plot line through reading the comics and the story's but nevertheless thanks to Greg Farshteys imaginative brain this still managed to dazzle me. When you've got a theme like Bionicle, and they make a straighttovideo film , the chances are your parents are not going to rate this film highly. But I think that these 3 films are completely underrated in that the animation is sweetly edited and the story lines are superb. Bionicle 3:web of shadows is the most popular of the Bionicle films in that it uses the greatest bionicle adventures theme as a storyline and that it's animation manages to capture an atmosphere so eerie it could even surpass the PG ratings. Bionicle 2 is still the best crafted film in terms of editing and the mask of lights is the most "fun" but this one contains the best storyline in my opinion.

As for me, I can't wait for Bionicle 4 to come out as it should involve the immense Piraka and the beautiful Voya Nui and the Bionicle Legends in my opinion is the best. Can't wait for that and overall good film. The Visorak rock! The Toa Hordika Rock! Roodaka does not rock!
