Trivia

All the background Matoran seen in the movie only wear five types of masks: Komau (the type of mask Turaga Onewa wears), Kakama (the same kind of mask Hewkii is seen wearing), Ruru (Turaga Whenua and Hafu), Rau (Turaga Nokam), and Huna (Turaga Vakama and Macku). The Hau, Kaukau, and Pakari are exclusive to only Hahli, Jaller, and Takua. Of the six major Matoran tribes, only the members of four appear in the film (fire, stone, water, and earth), while Matoran of Ice and Air are absent. Takua is a special case: he is a Matoran of Light, although at the time this movie was made, he was still considered a fire Matoran. Finally, of the island's six districts, only Ta-Wahi (fire), Le-Wahi (air), Ko-Wahi (ice), and Onu-Wahi (earth) are seen, with Ga-Wahi (water) and Po-Wahi (stone) being absent from the movie.

Goofs

When the other Toa argue that they should face Makuta as a team, Takanuva dismisses them and goes to fight him alone. But once he meets Makuta, he immediately calls for the others to follow him anyway. Yet when they are down there, the Toa just stand around and gaze instead of help Takanuva defeat Makuta. None of this makes sense. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Turaga Vakama: Gathered friends, listen again to our legend, of the Bionicle. In a time, before time, the great spirit, Mata Nui, fell from the heavens, carrying we, the ones called the Matoran. We were separate, and without purpose, so the Great Spirit illuminated us with the three virtues: Unity, Duty, and Destiny!

Crazy Credits

Toward the end of the credits, a sentence written in Matoran script appears. It reads: "No Rahi were harmed in the making of this film". ("Rahi" is a term that refers to Mata-Nui's fauna.) See more »

Alternate Versions

The Japanese dub has the characters refer to each other by name a lot more than the original dialogue, and Lewa even calls Graalok the Ash Bear by name instead of only calling her an Ash Bear. See more »

Awesome animation and great story
5 December 2005 | by zahel_krestSee all my reviews

When i saw the action figures by Lego, i thought that the story of bionicle was going to be thrash, but i was wrong. The movie "The Mask of Llight" is an superb adventure of faith, redemption and courage. The characters are really charismatic, so you can see this movie once and again. The design of the toa and the other characters is really stylish, and you wont feel disappointed about that. I can recommend you this movie because i love it, and if you like the epic stories about courage and friendship, take a look on this....you wont regret that.

But i need to be realistic. If you just like toi see blood, raw stories or you need to listen a bad word each 10 minutes, then you must find another movie, because this is amovie for kids and teenagers....
