This film started it for me. Now I love guyver. If I had to give my honest opinion, I'd say this film was very good, The guyver suit itself maybe rubber but its a VERY good rubber suit. The zoanoids are a let down as they have no real special powers like in the comics or anime. This film has moderate gore, the sfx were billant for saying this was done for a under $1 million budget, the sfx re better than the first. The storyline is good, written by someone who really understands the mind of thre guyvers host. The main gripe I have about this film is that I hunt for uncut and special editions of films, the PAL version of this film has about 15 mins of action taken out of it, yet the american and japense editions has these 15 mins in them. these show the romantic scenes, and seans nightmare of the guyver, also they show how much the guyver calls to him. If you are a comic/anime fan of the series find soeone in the guyver cummity toi sell you th US one, you'll like that more. The PAL version is adiqate as an action movie not for the guyver characteristion tht the US had.... but if your like me you'll have them both!!! IFyou have a DVD player buy the DVD its cheaper andyou get better quality.
