Trivia

At the beginning of the Kolhii match, the competitors salute each other by saying "play well." Lego, the company that produced the Bionicle toys, takes its name from the Danish phrase "leg godt", which means "play well". See more »

Goofs

After Kopaka and Jaller walk up to Takua on the frozen lake, either Takua's position relative to the frozen Rahkshi arm or position of the arm itself has changed. First, Takua's right in front of the arm with a sky backdrop, but a couple of seconds later, he's farther back and the mountain occupies the background. However the frozen arm still looks the same despite the change in camera angles. See more »

Quotes

[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!

Lord of the Rings in a New Light: The Mask of Criticism
28 July 2005 | by Westernesse8See all my reviews

Though I can enjoy this movie at certain bright points in the acting, it is not an original storyline. The whole conclusion of my fandom for the first Toa was not very satisfying, but I liked it. I hope Lego can do better in story and in acting in the future. I must say the visual fire-works were amazing. I don't think anyone could boast of doing better. If criticism was cattle, I'd have a herd for this movie. But there were bright points that were worth the painful while. Michael Dobson probably had the best vocal performance out of all. His Kopaka was what balanced the good and bad performances in the film. Here comes the criticism. My main animation criticism is the gestures mostly of Tahu. Tahu was very womanly, in gestures and lines, and I found it a little amusing. Pohatu and Onua seemed to wait a little too patiently for each others lines. Gali overacted by minor degrees. Lewa was good and basic, and a little Mata-nui religious. Takua was a little over dramatic at times, but that was expected. Kopaka had a few flaws at first meeting. Music was cunningly Bionicle, and it is one of the highest rises, and you forget it is there, which smooths out rough spots. All of it together makes a feast for longing fan eyes, but not always their ears. This is a story for the faint of heart. This is Mata-nui's Lord of the Rings.
