Editorial Reviews

Bionicle 3: Web of Shadows is the most visually and narratively pleasing feature yet in the Bionicle series. With a story that is a little less self-referential than the previous movies, and set against some truly spectacular, computer-generated backdrops, 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 (itself full of twists and turns) to restore Metru Nui--and themselves. This delightful Bionicle installment is probably easily accessible for any viewer unfamiliar with the series to date. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

The legendary BIONICLE(R) heroes are snared in webs of deceit, intrigue, and betrayal in BIONICLE(R) 3: WEB OF SHADOWS. Even more secrets will be revealed from deep within the world of BIONICLE(R) as the Toa face all-new villains in the most action-packed CGI-animated movie yet. With one final duty to fulfill before they can build their new home on the island of Mata Nui, six great Toa heroes return to Metru Nui and find their once-glorious city shrouded in shadows and overrun by a sinister army of spidery, web-slinging Visorak. Mysteriously transformed into strange beast-like creatures known as Toa Hordika, the Toa realize their mission to rescue the stranded Matoran -- held captive by dark powers -- will be anything but easy. Poisonous foes, extraordinary friends, and epic trials and triumphs are spun into this all-new adventure! Experience BIONICLE(R) 3: WEB OF SHADOWS and discover why future generations hail these Toa as the greatest heroes of all time!

3.0 out of 5 stars Its better.... December 31, 2005
Don't get me wrong, I think Bionicle is Ok. I'm not as huge a fan as my brother, but living with him, I've had to get to know a thing or two about this series.

Web of Shadows was not terrible, it was certainly better than the first and maybe moreso than the second, but it is soooo obvious that these are just one BIG commercial.

Overall, the plot line is a bit stale and hard to get caught up into. There are several sequences, such as "Keetongu" (or however it is spelled) or the transformation of the toa that will have anyone that is not a die hard fan rolling their eyes. Roodaka, the queen, was a refreshing new twist on the scenario and gave us something interesting, however, the relationships of the toa still seemed rather forced, which is somewhat surprising at this point.

Fans of the "bionicle" series will rejoice at yet another installment of their favorite series, but there isn't much here for anyone else. If you don't know much about the plot, watch this with someone who knows all the names, locations, and references made, because you won't understand a word of this story otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bionicle Trilogy Is Complete! October 6, 2005
The Bionicle movies just keep getting better with every release!

Web of Shadows features the best CGI thus far in the series along with the greatest action sequences to date. The voice acting is again top level and the storyline logicaly fits between "Mask" and "Ledgends". This is a must buy for any fans or owners of the first two DVDs.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nostalgic BIONICLE experience June 18, 2013
By S. Day
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While not as good as Legends of Metru Nui, Web of Shadows was really a great film. It takes a darker turn from the previous ones, more matching for the aging audience of the time. The plot is still simplistic, but enjoyable all the same.

The book was still better, though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it today for what it is December 1, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I was a kid I had Mask of Light on DVD. I was under ten years old, for sure. The other day I remembered this little series and found the movie to rewatch it. I can't make a decent review for that, because though I'm seventeen now and can probably detach from the aspect, most of its power was in nostalgia.
For some reason I didn't know there were two other movies and never watched them. So I did last week. Therefore keep in mind that my knowledge of this whole universe had mostly faded away.
I'm going to throw it out there that I'm not a movie fan. It takes a lot to impress me with movies, and I tend to steer towards animated movies anyway- so these days, my expectations are high with the bar being raised nearly every day for such films.
But though this is a rather old movie, I can say I loved every minute I spent watching this. I absolutely love it, along with the other 2, but this one is of the highest quality.

SpOiLeR, I suppose:

My favorite part, oddly enough, was when Vakama was on the villains' side. Usually I dislike tactics like that- turning the hero into the villain- but it was somehow really enthralling to watch.

All in all I can say that you won't be disappointed with this. I suggest you don't watch it unless you have seen the other movies (or at LEAST Legends of Metru Nui), but those are worth it too.
