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.
The suits and practical effects are top-notch. Yes, this movie uses man-in-suit monsters like Godzilla and yes it is realistic. Almost makes me wish the guy who did those effects (who also directed the movie) had actually made an American Godzilla film. It probably would've turned out better than both American films combined. Anyways, back to subject. The practical effects are totally off the FREAKING HOOK!!!! They look so real and it is so exciting to watch them do pound and ground, wrestling, martial arts, MMA, and all that kind of fighting in this movie with the titled character. As many have stated before, it plays out like an R-rated version of Power Rangers and if that sounds up your alley, this movie is for you.
Also, the music score is absolutely fantastic. Most people tend not to like it and say it's hammy and stuff, but I personally think it may be one of my favorite film scores ever. I know I've been gushing over this movie, but I can't help it. I thought it was that good. Also the story is interesting in my opinion, but admittedly just interesting enough. All this and more make "Guyver 2" a thousand times better than the first movie (even though I still sort of like that one, too).Read more ›
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.
