Storyline

The legends tells the story of how the Toa came to be, chosen from the pool of Matoran youth in the great city of Metru Nui and, though physically transformed, hardly prepared for increased size and super heroic powers. Now in short order, the Toa--who babble and bicker like agitated adolescents--have to master their new gifts, impress their leader, and prepare to protect their home.

Trivia

Fans of the movie have had trouble interpreting the scene in which Turaga Dume speaks to Makuta, who appears as a pair of eyes in a mirror. It is later revealed that Dume actually is Makuta in disguise, so the scene makes very little sense, since he is basically talking to himself. According to the movie novelization, the true self of "Dume" would have been revealed in a later scene when he looks into the mirror again, and he is reflected wearing Makuta's mask. This scene appears completely differently in the finished movie, where Makuta is seen looking into the mirror with his own mask by default, and only later puts on Dume's mask, thereby nullifying the effect of the reveal. Thus, the first mirror scene ended up making little sense. See more »

Quotes

Onewa: Turaga, I know you not.
Lhikan: Your concern should be with your own identity, not mine. Freedom and escape are different objectives, but both are easily realized.
Onewa: You are stuck here with us, so...
Lhikan: I have freedom, even in here. But for escape, Toa mask powers are needed.
Nuju: [sighs] I doubt we'll ever be in touch with our mask powers.
Lhikan: Oh, never doubt what you are capable of. The Great Spirit lives through us all.

Crazy Credits

Near the end of the credits, many gag titles are written in Bionicle writing. When decoded, they read: Best Matoran, Location Scouts, Asst to Mr Makuta, Set Doctor, Nivawk Handler, Gaffer, Vahki Transport Captain, Security for Metru Nui, Master Builders, Stunt Riders, Stunt Doubles for Matau and Kikanalo Wranglers.

Alternate Versions

In the German version, when Onewa, Whenua, Nuju and Lhikan are in the tunnel, they are saying lines that make sense, whereas the original English version simply copy&pasted random unfitting sentences from earlier scenes into this shot. See more »

This movie is excellent; it should have been longer so that it could be released in theaters!!!!
20 November 2004 | by inviolet_nowSee all my reviews

When I first saw Bionicle 2: Legends of Metru Nui, it was the best CGI movie that I have seen in a very long time. I never thought that there were even Toa before the Toa we know, and also I found out that they later turn into Turaga when they lose their power, such as when Lhikan turned into a Turaga and the Toa Metru turned into Turaga after they gave up their power. Also, I found out the answer to a mystery that has been one of my Lego goals to solve; where did the Kanohi Vahi, the Great Mask of Time come from and who created the mask?; and finally, the major villain, which I have decided to reveal, is quite possibly the greatest mystery in the movie; Makuta. How is Makuta involved in Metru Nui, why is he in this time period, and finally, how did he get involved with Turaga Dume in the first place as "sworn to protect the Matoran"? Anyways, it was a great movie in my opinion. I give it a 100 on my scale of 1 to 10.(I have heard that they are to release a third Bionicle movie in 2005.)
