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

The movie's German release was subject to major cuts. A total of 55 separate cuts were made, thus the movie's running time decreased by about 10 minutes, a seventh of the original's running time. The reason for these alterations is that in Germany, the movie was targeted towards a younger audience, and many frightening or intense scenes and dialog had to be deleted. Unfortunately, many of the cut parts were integral to the plot and pacing. See more »

Goofs

Right after Roodaka notices that something is climbing up the Coliseum, the camera quickly pans over the building's side, and zooms straight to Keetongu who is indeed scaling the structure. Partway through the shot, a thick wall of some sorts obscures Keetongu, yet because of a strange error in the animation, Keetongu is visible as a small yellow dot through the wall. See more »

Quotes

Sidorak: What is that?
Vakama: I guess it's Keetongu.
Sidorak: But Keetongu doesn't exist!
Vakama: Obviously, you're wrong about that. I'll take care of him.
Roodaka: No, Vakama. It is not your place. It is that of a king.
Sidorak: [looks around nervously, then tries to look confident] If Keetongu wasn't a myth before, he soon will be.

A Movie More Than Just A LEGO Advertisement
17 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the 3rd installment to a LEGO advertisement series. This should be... interesting? So Bionicle 3 is about the toa who return to the island where they defeated Makuta so that they could find and save the remaining toa stuck on the island. But the place is taken over by Visorak and they need to stop them.

Characters - The characters are pretty cool looking but the voice actors can stew them up sometimes. Some of the voices are pretty annoying. But overall the characters are OK but they look cool so everything is alright, barely.

Animation - The animation in this movie is actually pretty awesome. It's cool because how they animate the mind of makes them look not like LEGO. Sometimes the animation looks sloppy like they rushed it so that was a bit of a problem but it's a TV movie, they're not going to do a whole lot to it.

Action Sequences - I thought the action scenes in this movie were pretty cool for a is movie. I mean this was one of my childhood movies and I loved it so kids will overall love everything about the movie.

The Deep Stuff - The movie thought-out is kind of boring especially if your an adult. But towards the end the movie gets pretty awesome. There's is one part which I did not expect but it was a pretty memorable moment. It was like kind of a sad scene but it had a lesson in it.

Pros -

Awesome Animtion Entertaining Action Sequences Memorable Moral

Cons -

Feels too Rushed OK Script Writing

Overall - Overall this movie is a great family movie, it's better than 1 and 2 barely. It can sometimes seem stupid and rushed but that's because it's a kids movie. O do have to say though that the script that was made in this movie is pretty bad. It's not terrible but it's kind of stupid but it wasn't a big problem I just wanted to point that out. So I am giving Bionicle barely a 7/10 because it is a very enjoyable movie. I personally thought this movie was pretty good. (B+)
