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

Kualus' voice actor, who only says one word, is not credited. He does receive more dialogue in the mini-film BIONICLE: Shadow Play (2005), however he isn't given a credit there either. See more »

Goofs

After the Visorak lieutenant brings news of the Toa's survival to Roodaka, and the latter angrily approaches the Visorak, the shadow effect on Roodaka's body seems to be "shifted" to the side, creating the illusion of shadow hanging in thin air. See more »

Unity, Duty and Destiny
3 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Here it is, another fabulous movie of the Bionicle Series. The animation is fantastic, the characters admirable in different ways - a pleasure to watch again and again! The one thing I love about this movie, and all the Bionicle movies, is that they always come out with a cool story line, never repeated with the other movies. It's always original.

I love how it stays true to the books, and how it always stays close to the 'good over evil' back-bone story line. It's great for kids, but I'm a teenager and I love all the Bionicle movies! It's suitable for all ages, so why not just see it - it won't let you down.
