Movie Reviews

Surprisingly good sci-fi
Linda Alonzo | Great Lakes, IL United States | 10/22/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."

"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"

"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."
Entertaining, despite the flaws

"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.But despite all this, the movie entertains us. The characters are more than cardboard, bland figures based on toys. They have emotions, personalities and behaviours that make you forget that this movie is based on a Lego product. The music is also well delivered, with a good quality orchestra. Although not memorable, the main theme may echo in your head for a while.In my book, for a first movie from Lego and Miramax, the producers did a good job. Here`s hoping that there will be more."
