Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Alpha team leader Stormer is the best and toughest Hero at the Hero Factory. Years ago, when he was still just a Rookie, he was on a dangerous mission. It was up to Stormer and his fellow Rookie, Von Ness, to save the city. Von Ness deserted him, and Stormer was forced to go into battle alone. He succeeded that day, just like he has on every mission since then, but he still carries around the feeling that something is left unfinished. A new Rookie team has been assigned to complete their training with Stormer and his crew. Furno looks to be the best Rookie the Factory has seen since Stormer was a Rookie himself. He's joined by fellow Rookies Breez and Surge, as they try to prove to Stormer and each other why they are ready to become true Heroes. As the six Heroes begin to work together on their missions, they start to realize that the bad guys they are fighting are working for someone. Someone from Stormer's past, with an evil agenda to take down the Hero Factory and Stormer himself.
This doesn't look as cool as the Bionicle Movies. First, the heroes' mouths don't move. What's up with that? Bionicle looks a little more realistic. This is just like a shoot and dodge movie. Why do they even have swords if they are shooting random light bursts? Plus, it's a little too... kiddy. They have to have a joke every five minutes. Bionicle had more action and is more realistic. Not very exciting in my opinion. If you're thinking of getting this watch the trailer.
Not the best
LEGO's movies have taken a serious turn in the last few years. While the original three Bionicle movies were good story but subpar animation, the new bionicle, clutch powers, and this movie have good animation but terrible storys. In this story Stormer, who is supposed to be the best, gets shot in each mini episode/chapter, All the characters laugh at horrendous excuses for jokes, and most of the voices are annoying. Rotor, who is supposed to be menacing, is now a stupid idiot who cant think for himself. The character development is terrible, the "bad guy" isnt fearsome or scary at all, and the concept is just pathetic. I cannot comprehend why they would make this a television series. The only reason I rated this a three star is because my little brother and sister enjoyed it.
p.s And to answer Photobrick Studios the heroes mouths do movebut in the trailer they're helmets are down the helmets move when they aren't in a battle situation.
I can't wait to buy this, I am a big Hero Factory fan, and this movie looks like it will be so much better than the bionicle movie series.
