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}

Trivia

One major difference between the movie and its novelization (which was likely written according to an earlier version of the script) is that in the novel, Vakama joins the villains to free the Matoran alone, and only turns fully evil when he touches the Makuta's throne and its dark energies corrupt him. In the movie, he instantly becomes evil upon joining the villains and never touches the throne because he gets interrupted. The throne itself isn't referred to as having belonged to Makuta either in the movie. See more »

Goofs

When the Toa discover the destroyed temple, Nokama is in front of Nuju. In the following shot, she's suddenly behind him, though she still appears smaller due to a layering error. See more »

Quotes

Sidorak: You must be confused, Toa. We do not welcome your kind here - we exterminate it.

Crazy Credits

As the credits roll, spiderwebs run along the edges of the screen, with Visorak spiders sitting on them, some snapping at the titles. At one point, you can see two Visorak fighting each other, one of them eventually showing the other off the webbing into the space below. It claps its pincers victoriously. See more »

just as good as the 1st two and a bit better in some respects
10 June 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this 3rd movie in the "Bionicle" series is pretty good entry.just like the 2nd one is as good as the 1st,this one is as good as the 2nd.i really like the fact that the villain is very strong in this one and quite malevolent.more so than the two previous entries.the action is also pretty good,plus we have some double crossing,backstabbing going on to elevate the proceedings.i also like the wise old sage.i thought he was very likable.another thing i like is the different kinds of creatures in this one.as well,this movie is quite a bit darker in tone than the first two.there is more of a sense of danger and jeopardy.the other two lacked that element at least to a certain extent.the only other real complaint i have with this installment is that there were a few too many lulls in the story,with not enough going on.other than that i enjoyed it.i give Bionicle" 3:Web of Shadows" a 7/10
