[first lines]
Turaga Vakama: Gathered friends, listen again to our legend, of the Bionicle. In a time, before time, the great spirit, Mata Nui, fell from the heavens, carrying we, the ones called the Matoran. We were separate, and without purpose, so the Great Spirit illuminated us with the three virtues: Unity, Duty, and Destiny!

Unity, Duty, and Destiny!
2 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is a very good film! This movie is more than just a toy commercial, it has great action, CGI, characters, design, story, etc. This film is part of the BIONICLE franchise, so of course who wouldn't like this movie? The problem with this film is people look at the CGI and think it looks awful, at todays standards it kinda is. However back in the day this CGI was AMAZING for its time! I will admit that this movie is nowhere near perfect, as it has its downs. I definitely recommend this one. I've noticed how when people upload this film on YouTube, the quality is not the same. In fact the quality is usually much more worse. If you want to watch it with better quality than I recommend buying the DVD instead of the watching the poor quality uploads on YouTube. Overall this film is great, if you get the chance you definitely should watch this film.
