This review is from: Bionicle : The Mask Of Light - The Movie [DVD] (DVD)
I have always had a soft spot for this film, and watching it again after many years did not disappoint. It's my personal favourite of the four Bionicle films, and it gets the balance of a good film just about right. The characters are engaging and lively, and the locations of Mata Nui are absolutely beautiful. The storyline is strong, with parallel plots (the quest for the eponymous Mask, the appearance of the sinister Rahkshi, and the Toa's search for their unity) that keep it interesting. The climax of the story is a little disappointing, but only a little, and it's done so dramatically and enthusiastically that you hardly notice. Nathan Furst's musical score is great, with echoes of John Williams and Howard Shore, and the animation really brings the characters and world of Bionicle to life. Great effort from the producers, animators and performers, and what this film really has that I think the others lack somewhat is heart, a love for Bionicle that depends on good characters and good plots rather than just flashy weapons or cool-looking tricks. One of my favourite films - love it.
