The Guyver 2

The story is good, and the acting, while not always great, is always solid. But what really gets me about this film is the action sequences, strange hybrids of mutant monsters and bizarrely improbably kung fu. Since I enjoy both these genres, it's nice to have a film blend them so well. They're a blast.
This is based on some anime show which I'm only vaguely familiar, but it seems true to the original concept. That's a neat trick, since animation doesn't always crossover into live action as gracefully as in this film.
See it if you like some over the top action with an interesting story. "Guyver 1" is okay, though not nearly as good. If you've seen the first and didn't like it, give this one a shot. And if you haven't seen the first, it won't stop you from enjoying this film.
David Hayter I believed delivered a strong performance that is worthy of attention. Also, let's not forget that the first movie never showewd him using his laser (located above the Control Metal) even once! The fight scenes are superb (especially the fight between the Guyver and the Guyver Zoanoid). The only thing that I disliked was some of the dialouge, but it's forgivable. Anyone who likes sci-fi or anime based films, this is one I highly recommend to pick up.
Special effects, such as the transformation of Sean into the Guyver are either cleverly hidden, or done courtesy of CGI that still manages to impress nowadays. A well-done score by Les Claypool III helps add a dark mood and sense of urgency to many scenes, particularly fight scenes.
The majority of people seem to either love or hate this film, and I fall into the latter category; it's definitely gots its weak points with some cheesy villain character designs, gangster cliches (as depicted in the opening intro sequence), and the usual romance involving a cynical woman who eventually warms to a misunderstood hero. But all in all, it's definitely worth a rental for Sci-Fi fans who want some high quality cinematic junk food.
