From childhood, I had loved 'Bionacle: The Mask Of Light', despite my parents' strong hatred of the movie, and complaining every time I watched it. So when I saw The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th movie going cheap in the local store, needless to say I was somewhat excited.
My excitement was short-lived however, when the movie began. It was not until the very last 5 seconds of the movie that I went 'Oh, its a prequel!', and even then I had to look it up on wikipedia to make sure.
The lore was totally baffling, and had no relevance to anything that happened in the first movie. This left me outright confused, and scratching my head. Since when did Toa have these weird stars that appeared in the sky? Where are the Toa from the first movie? but the questions I asked most were 'what?' and 'huh?'. The main confusing part was that the film began from showing the main character from the first movie, transfigured into a half-villain/half-goodie, saving the day. It turned out that this was somebody totally different, but since it was not explained that this was a prequel, i simply thought they were one and the same.
This placed the movie for me as a direct sequel, so when the villain turned up, I was more confused than ever. 'I thought he got fused into that half-and-half bionacle? how is he back here?'. Another thing I found myself asking was 'Where is Metru-Nui? this place was never referenced once in the first movie? but it acts like they live here forever!'. If only It had told you it was a prequel on the box, I could have taken a moment out of my utter bafflement to actually enjoy the movie.
Even without the confusion factor however, the plot still doesn't make much sense, and if it does, the sheer amount of lore-detail put out is enough to leave one's head spinning. The story was poorly written. Clearly an an ensemble movie, like 'Avengers', the plot focuses on six matorun, who somehow turn into Toa. It is meant to be a story of friendship and bonding, but the movie was so short at 72 minutes, there wasn't enough time to get to know the characters. The first movie had lovable personalities and great interactions, this felt stale and by the book. Nothing felt like a real interaction, just like a list of klee-shays from the first movie minus all the heart. The story is too confusing to get any moral out of.
Very reminiscent of the phantom menace, in the way that it is a confusing, lore-bending prequel that came out the blue. Very odd, and pretty insulting to the original movie.
No kids movie should be so complex that I have to go to Reddit just to see if anybody can explain the plot to me. Your children will probably enjoy the action, and maybe grasp the plot IF you show them 2&3 before the original, but not follow an epic story and learn a lesson like they can with the first movie.
The animation looked about half as good as the original movie did, seems like it was rushed. Will watch the others out of obligation, but only 'the mask of light' will have a place in my heart so far. If you loved 'mask of light' and wonder if this is a worth getting for nostalgia; it is not. Let's face it. The first Bionicle movie was insultingly "kiddy". Even toddlers watching it had to rethink if they were too old to be included inside the intended target audience. Not this sequel. Where violence occurred off-screen in the first movie, this has it right out in the open. You have projectile and physical attacks. You have kidnapping, scary moments, hopeless moments, brave moments. You have drama that's adequate enough for an adult, but not way over the head of a child. My main gripe with the movie is not even with the movie itself. It's that the character designers went WAY too far outside merely updating the toys to work as CGI objects. Their redesign of Nivawk for example resulted in a character who has no toy counterpart. So if your kid is jumping up and down for you to buy "the cool, purple bat guy with blue wings", good luck. You will NOT find it in the toy store. Not looking anything like the one in the movie anyway.
Back on subject: Great effects, great story, well executed. Not too scary for nightmares, but not so kiddy it's embarrassing. WORTH YOUR MONEY. -JINZONINGEN 73 The movie never explains this, but the elemental powers of the Toa got depleted during their off-screen ventures (detailed in the books and comics), of which we only see a short montage in the movie. By the end of the film, their powers have recharged, which is why they only use them then. Makuta intended to enslave the entire Matoran population of Metru Nui into capsules. These had the effect of, over time, erasing their captives' memories and deteriorating their bodies. Makuta wanted the Mask of Time to be made as it would have allowed him to speed up the time around the capsules, thereby having to wait less for them to take effect, so that he could awaken the Matoran and fool them into thinking that he was their savior. The six Toa use their elemental powers to form a crystalline cage of solid protodermis (the substance that the BIONICLE world is made of) around him. In the BIONICLE world, the combination of any six elements that don't cancel each other out can create protodermis. Nidhiki was once a Toa hero and served together with Toa Lhikan, developing a brotherly relationship with him. However Nidhiki grew power-hungry and ended up betraying his Toa fellows and joining the mercenary organization of the Dark Hunters. He was subsequently mutated by Roodaka (the villain in Bionicle 3: Web of Shadows (2005)) into the insect-like form we see in the movie, to ensure that he would never return to being a Toa hero again. The Mask of Time doesn't allow time-travel. It can only slow down or speed up time around a given target, but its user cannot travel back in time with it. Yes. His right eye got poked out by a female Makuta named Gorast long before the events of this movie. The Brotherhood of Makuta, the evil organization that he's the leader of. This was one of the first hints in the BIONICLE storyline that there was more than one Makuta. The Morbuzakh plant, which had a great presence in the comics, novels and games leading up to the movie's story, only has a short cameo, during the Toa Metru's "scavenger hunt" montage when its vines are seen holding Vakama prisoner. The act itself isn't shown nor explained, as it happened many years before this movie. He had released a virus that over time shut Mata Nui down, and waited until it had taken effect (which happens during the movie) to reveal his evil intentions to the world. The Makuta were originally good and served to protect the Matoran, as well as to preserve nature's balance by bioengineering wild life. They had crushed conflicts several times before turning corrupt, but had kept their intentions secret. That's why everyone is surprised to see that Makuta is behind the Matoran's disappearance. The play-field the Toa have to go through is called the "sea of protodermis", later we find out that the actual sea surrounding the island is made of liquid protodermis, and at the end the Toa trap the villain inside crystalline protodermis.
Protodermis is a (probably artificial) substance that everything in the Matoran Universe is made out of, so it's basically synonymous with "matter" for the characters. It can be liquid, metal, wood, crystal or even flesh; not that the movies ever explain what it is. However the waters in the previous movie were made of actual water, since it took place on an island outside of the Matoran Universe. Heroes: Vakama, Nokama, Matau, Whenua, Onewa, Nuju (as Matoran, Toa and Turaga), Toa Lhikan (later turns into a Turaga), Turaga Dume (appears comatose)
Villains: Nidhiki, Krekka, Makuta Teridax (also masquerading as Turaga Dume).
Others: the Vahki types Rozakh and Zadakh, Nivawk, Kikanalo beasts, and considering the movie takes place mostly in his brain, Mata Nui.
Cameos: Kongu, Jaller, Takua, Hahli, the Morbuzakh plant, the mutated Ussal crab, the Dweller in the Deep, along with thousands of random background Matoran and many random Rahi animals Turaga Dume is seen talking to a shadowy mirror in which the eyes of the evil Makuta appear. Later it's revealed that Dume is in fact Makuta himself, wearing the disguise of the real Turaga Dume. So was he talking to himself in the scene? If so, why did "Makuta" talk in a different voice?
The scene is actually never explained. Makuta has a fondness for self-monologuing, but it's unclear why he would project his eyes into the mirror and have a discussion with Dume, who is really himself. The scene is likely the result of the film's haphazard production. He's referring to the Toa Mangai team, the predecessors of Vakama and his Toa Metru team. Lhikan is the last of the Toa Mangai. The others were each assigned dangerous tasks by the city's leader from which they never returned -- in reality, it was Makuta who gave them those assignments, in order to get rid of them.
