Editorial Reviews

Lego's Bionicle line has sprouted this complicated but impressive family movie, Bionicle: Mask of Light, to bolster the toys' mythic appeal. The story focuses on the robotic Matoran tribe from the island of Mata Nui, which is protected by six powerful guardians known as the Toa. Two small Matorans--one a potentially heroic "herald" and the other a historian-witness called "chronicler"--find a sacred mask of light, suggesting the imminent of arrival of a seventh Toa. Identifying that mystery figure proves difficult, however, especially with the evil spirit of shadows, Makuta, attacking Matorans with mechanized-crayfish warriors in a bid to possess the precious mask. This is the kind of out-of-nowhere, dense fantasy that requires one to get up to speed quickly on a lot of exotic detail, terms, history, etc. But Mask of Light is also enjoyable as expressive, CGI animation with thoughtful art design, striking color, and excellent vocal performances. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD is AWSOME September 16, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Ok..I have to admit as a parent when I saw the trailer for the movie I thought oh brother another [money amount]out of my pocket to Lego. I didnt even want to have anything to do with this thing.
This morning my son wakes up, and is so excited that the movie was going to be released for sale today. I reluctantly bought him a copy.
We sat down and popped the DVD in, and my first impression was "Hey this is kinda cool". Its got really neat interactive features ( I wont go into great detail, as I wouldnt want to ruin it for you, and I would list them but you can see them in the product details).
After playing with the bonus features, we started the movie. The graphics and sound are AWSOME!! There is a feature that you can toggle on an off that allows additional information to be viewed during the movie (like the pop up bubbles).
Its a tad slow during one part (but me not knowing really what was going on..well that could be because of my lack of Bioncile knowledge). I actually enjoyed the movie. There were three adults and one child, and everyone was GLUED to the set. No one moved or made a sound during the entire film.
Its got a good story line.
My son was a little disappointed in the way the one of the Bionicles talked..but over all was really happy. He had a smile on his face through the entire thing.
I cant wait until the Second movie is released in the Fall of 2004

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good sci-fi October 21, 2003
We bought this movie for my five-year-old Bionicle crazy son. My husband has read him the comic books that come with Lego magazine. I didn't know much about the story. I was really amazed at how good the movie was. It had a complete story line. The graphics were excellent and I have become somewhat a Bionicle fan, myself now. I must admit fatigue from hearing about them 12 hours a day, but this movie was really fun and exciting. The animators did a great job bringing the Bionicles to life. We look forward to the next movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and intelligent September 24, 2003
Besides reading the other reviews here I didn't really know what to expect from this movie. I was very pleasantly suprised how well done this movie is. It's a movie that the entire family can enjoy (yes even the parents) and you can tell the people involved knew how to handle the material.
I have to agree with the other reviewers though that the voice given to Lewa was all wrong.
The extras on the DVD are also nice and give more backround info into the Bionicle world.
Even if you are new to the Bionicle scene or know nothing about it at all you will not be let down by this fine feature.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, despite the flaws February 21, 2004
I am a Lego fan, even in my late 20`s. So I was excited when I heard about this movie.
Now that I got it, here is my 2-cent-worth review.
It is an entertaining little romp in the world of the Bionicle. Some kids were amazed to see their favourite toys brought to life onscreen. The animators manage to take some liberties in adding some features to the characters for obvious reasons (i.e. adding fingers to the hands, slight mask modifications to allow mouth movement...) while maintaining the spirit of the Bionicle. And the story is good for a kid-oriented movie. Adults would be able to watch it with their children without feeling bored.
As pleasant this movie has been, there are a few issues that brought the score down. First is the art and animation. As great as it may be, I have found some of the design and scenarios to be uneven. An example would be a scene where a character pokes her head out of the water near the top of a waterfall. As the raging water comes rushing, the head does not seem to be affected by the flow of water. There is no water turbulence, splash or drag animated around the head. There is barely a ripple. After seeing the movie, I do not understand why more details where added, since the rest of the movie was of an above average quality.
Also, the story seems to have some holes that do not explain certain plot details. Sometimes a character would just suddenly KNOW something out of the blue, without any explanation on how he/she got to that conclusion. At other times, heroes would conveniently appear during critical situations without explaining why and how. Things like this makes you scratch your head and wonder if you have missed something. After seeing the movies four times, I still do not have all my questions answered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie! September 26, 2003
A Kid's Review
We loved this movie!! We watched it three days in a row!!! We couldn't get enough of it!! Two Matoran, Takua and Jaller, go on a journey to find the seventh Toa. Along the way, they run into all six of the other Toa--Gali (The only girl Toa!!), Tahu, Onua, Lewa, Kopaka, and Pohotu. (In the magazine, after the Toa had defeated the Bohrak Kal, they went back to their own villages to help rebuild what had been destroyed. "Mask of Light" shows how they're reunited.) Although Lewa said things such as "airfly," "footwalk," and "quicklearn," he DID start saying things like that in the magazine, right before the movie came out, so it only makes sense that he'd talk like the magazine. In spite of that, he DOES have the perfect voice! "Mask of Light" is the kind of movie that everyone can enjoy, and it won't scare your little sister.
