If your a die hard fan then this movie is for you. As happens with most main stream films numbers of poeple have seen Guyver "The Dark Hero" but very few have even heard of "Mutronics", which is a shame as the movie answers a lot questions left open in GTDH. The action sequences in Mutronics may not be up to the fast paced fights in GTDH but they are well correographed and put together. I would reccomend this film to anyone who has seen GTDH or the Manga equivelant as it is a great insight into the whole Guyver series.

Mutronics (AKA "The Guyver" in the US), is a US written adaptation of the famous Manga and Anime Show "Bio Boosted Armor Guyver" (a lot of UK Anime fans will remember it as one of the first series they saw from Manga Entertainment in the 90's).

I won't go into too much detail, if you want a more in depth look, watch the Review by the "Nostalgia Critic" crew here - http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/bt/the-sage/anime-abandon/41031-the-guyver-with-nostalgia-critic

In short this is an interesting movie that is worth a look if you remember the series at all, be warned though, the budget went towards Mark Hamill's fee and the Monster costumes, so don't expect Holywood production values!

Pro's
* Good Monster Suits (especially the Guyver Suit) are very well made
* There's a real Kamen Rider/Power Rangers feel to the fights (but some get a little brutal)
* Mark Hamill is the standout actor in the whole thing and does his best with the script.
* Jimmy Walker's hiphop monster is one of the most unintentionally funny things in the movie.
* The evil boss' acting is so wonderfully hammy it's a joy watching his scenes
* Michael Berryman (the only actor people remember from the "Hills Have Eyes") is a major player.
* Most of the people behind "Reanimator" were involved with this film.

Con's
* The advertising is misleading - Mark Hamill is NOT the main character, just in a supporting role.

The cover of Guyver gives the impression that Hamill is the One in the suit,well He's not.This is a muddled Mess of A film but it does contain so many well known genre Actors its MAD!!!! Jeffery Combs, David Gale, Michael Berryman to name but A few and the Gore and effects from Screaming mad George are Brilliant.

The Guyver Manga series has inspired two Anime series (plus a limited release animated film) and two live action films - this is the first of the two films and is generally considered the poorest offering in the whole Guyver collection.

Both the live action films are American and therefore stray from the original Japanese Manga, but they manage to retain many of the original elements. Mutronics establishes the history behind the monsters you will eventually see by prefacing the film with scrolling text (a-la Star Wars) along with narration to give us the backstory. So by the time the film starts you are aware that humans were created by alien forces as a weapon - and that the Guyver is a unit which takes a human to a new level of power. It also explains that some humans (Zoanoids) can mutate at will and that they belong to an organisation called Chronos.

With the formalities out of the way the film delves straight in and we see a Zoanoid attack on a Chronos defector as they attempt to take back the Guyver unit that the runaway doctor has stolen fearing that it will be used for evil doings. The Guyver unit has been hidden away though and they reclaim nothing but an old toaster, this sets in motion the traditional Guyver story of a young male stumbling across the unit and coming to terms with the power it gives him - and in this film that male is Sean.

This early nineties film is right at home with the torrent of low budget made-for-video comedy/action horror films which hit the market from the mid-eighties onwards when VHS players had become commonplace in most homes. The acting is pretty wooden and over the top, in fact the only performance which impresses is that of Mark Hamill who plays a detective trying to get to the bottom of Chronos.
