I saw Guyver 2: Dark Hero, and couldn't belive my eyes. It was by far the finest piece of film-making about Alien Bio-armor and horrible Half-Man, Half-monster creatures that I have ever seen. The acting affected me a great deal and I can truly say that this film changed my life. Of course, I only say all this because I played the lead in this film and this was where I met my girl-friend. (She plays the archeology student in the red tank-top, isn't she hot?) So, to sum up, please buy Guyver 2: Dark Hero. It is much better than the first, and it's only nine dollars. Signed, David Hayter.

When you watch a lot of low-budget sci-fi films, you can't help but realize there's a lot of terrible stuff out there. Stuff so bad that it's not even funny. But every once in a while, between the terrible stuff, and the unintenionally amusing films, you discover something like this. I've seen this a couple of times, and every time I just enjoy the heck out of it. It shows what imagination, clever writing, and a good special effects crew can accomplish even with limited resources.

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.

Highly recommended.

Even though this film was made in 1993, it is still one of the best sci-fi action flicks you'll see, even 10 years after its release. I remember seeing the first one and thinking 'It's good', but when i saw this one, i was blown away. Better actors, better story and better costumes, not forgetting better action. It's so involving you wish you where the Guyver. David Hayter is a vast improvement on the original guy who played Sean Barker, and just in case you didn't know, David Hayter wrote the screen play for the excellent X-Men movie and did the voice of Solid Snake for Metal Gear Solid one and two. I didn't see the anime series until a few years later and was blown away by that to. So to all you anime/sci-fi fans, i recommend you buy this one, and get the first one, if only to make sure you know what's going on in Guyver 2. Even though it's been 10 years, i still hope they get round to doing a third Guyver to bring it full circle. Well, go on, buy it. Go on... what are you waiting for.

I couldn't have been more happy with this movie... Well, okay, that's not true. Despite my giving this film five stars, it does have problems, but I'm personally able to overlook them. The one thing that hurts the movie the most is the acting. It's not really the most solid onscreen performances, but I personally feel that's the only thing that comes close to being a distraction and it really shouldn't be. This is B-movie schlock at its finest. If you're into things like Sci-Fi, low budget stuff like that, I personally feel this is top of the line in that department.

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).

Anyone who saw the first Guyver movie and didn't like it, don't worry. This movie is AWESOME! For one, I have both animes on DVD. If you pay attention to the anime and movie, you will notice similarities between them. One is where Sean jumps off the cliff and changes into the Guyver in midair! In the anime, he jumped off a fence at his school (very high up) and did the exact same thing. Steve Wang and his crew did an excellent job.

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.
