I see a pattern...
There seems to be a pattern in the Bionicle movie franchise. Here it is:
Mask of Light: great plot, bad graphics
Legends of Metru Nui: good plot, mediocre graphics
Web of Shadows: mediocre plot, good graphics
The Legend Reborn: bad plot, great graphics
Anyone else see a pattern? I appreciate that Lego is giving us cool visuals, but story and dialogue are what really makes a movie. And this movie doesn't have much in the way of those.
I saw one of the earlier Bionicle movies with my 5 year old son, and was impressed with the imagination of the storytelling, and the creation of a whole new religion and philosophy for this animated film. Cool, I thought. This one... not so much. Just a lot of fighting, trite dialogue, and stock lessons about friendship and working together. To put it in the language of this site, it is Lacking in Awesomeness.
It wasn't the BEST movie i've ever seen, but it's definitely my favorite of the four bionicle movies.
