Customer Reviews

If you liked this movie then you should see the second Guyver movie, it is better.
Seth Stout
These human/monsters, called Zoanoids, have gotten together and formed a corporation, headed by the most powerful of the bunch, the Zoanlord (Gale).

It's pretty cheesy and the acting is bad, but the concept of Guyver is a great idea.

My 1st review so spelling errors aside keep with it.
Seeing some of the other reviews I thought I'd put in my useless words as well.

I've always been a fan of the Guyver anime, it was the first anime I've ever picked up (Seeing how he sort of had a Spider-man look to him when I was younger, I instantly picked it up) So of course I have to try out the movies no matter, to see if they could've made the Guyver cooler in the big screen than he was in a anime. This was probaly years ago but now when I look back at them. It adds to my collection.

I didn't mind the movie, its old, those old movies tend to be corny as time goes on. I sadly made the mistake of watching Guyver 2 on the SciFi channel years ago before I watched the 1st movie so I held my standards higher back then. I can imagine more and more movies will come along and blow our "Movie of this year" yadda yadda. What I'm trying to say is pretty soon the Matrix or Star Wars will be looked back at and criticized just as much, as this flick.

Overall opinion:
Acting was ... decent they could've chosen a better cast of actors

Special Effects were decent

Costumes were decent (reminded me of a violent power rangers back then so I instantly loved it)

The movie was a attempt to bring Guyver to the big screen, I really wish Guyver 2: Dark Hero was what they did. They could've easily have made that into the first Guyver movie. I still gladly have both in my collection, and watch them time to time. Maybe they'll re-make this one
like they've done with other movies seeing how we can't produce anything original anymore.

The second movie blows this one away, and it didn't require them to grab any big names to fetch them some Mark Hamill fans.

I liked it alot at first cause I'm a fan of the anime, and it was cool to see the Guyver in live action. But this is more like a spoof than an adaptation. Kinda like the 60s Batman show.

Pros: the action is hot. The Guyver does some cool martial arts. Plus his bladed weapons looked cool. And if you're into the comical action this movies for you. Plus there are alot of guest stars from horror fame.

Cons: Too campy. The cover is misleading: When I first saw it I thought Hamill was playing the Guyver, he's actually not. He plays an FBI agent. The acting is pretty bad, except for Hamill who did an OK job.

If you're more of a fan of serious action monster flicks, get Guyver 2.

The Guyver series is a really good comic book and animated series. But for this movie they just really f@#ked it up. They made like a damn Power Rangers movie. If u really want to see the Guyver in action watch the sequel. And for the record on the movie cover I know it has Mark Hamill with half of his face with the Guyver's and people tell me he plays the Guyver. WRONG! Mark Hamill is the starring actor of this movie, Jack Armstrong plays the Guyver. But anyways, I give this movie 3 out of 5 stars.

I am a fan of the Guyver anime series and this movie does to The Guyver, what Adam West did to Batman: Makes it look freakin' ridiculous!

That being said it's still a fun B-movie and worth a watch.

The Good:

-The costumes and creatures are very well done.

-The main villain, Balcus, actually resembles the anime character.

-Like the anime, the Guyver dies and is then regenerated.

-The scene where Sean becomes the Guyver is hilarious due to the fact that the street gang is such an 80's stereotype, with lines like "Hey, cool, chilly man, I'm just trying to help you out".

-The movie doesn't take itself seriously, so you don't get too mad that it's not faithful to the original source material.

The Bad:

-The acting is terrible, especially Jack Armstrong & Vivian Wu and then you have Mark Hamill who is so over the top its embarassing.

-The fat german thug Ramsey, who they dress up like a foreign exchange student with a Mr. T obsession and Hitler mustache.

If you are a fan of The Guyver you'll either accept it as camp or burn it in disgust, either way check it out so you can have an opinion.

If you just like cheesy Cinemax-style action movies, this is for you.

If none of the above then you obviously have too much class.

For Guyver fans like me (I've read the original Japanese comics that the movie was based on), you will probably be satisfied with this film. I mean, the costumes were good (good enough considering it was filmed in 1991, anyway), and the special effects, stunts and actions were great. But if you were looking for a strong storyline, then I suggest you turn to the animated series, which is a replica of the comic books. In my opinion I think the producers paid too much attention in special effects.
As for the acting... well, I almost thought the movie was trying to teach you speak proper English (maybe that was the producers' original intention to ensure its marketability in Japan?). Even the slangs and bad languages used were pronounced ever so clearly, word for word...
And why is Mark Hamil shown on the cover of the video with the Guyver costume, anyway? He's not the Guyver in the movie if I remember correctly...
Having said all this, DON'T miss out "Guyver 2: The Dark Hero". That's how a movie should, in my opinion, really be.
