The Guyver Extravaganza: Part 2

The next installment in today’s 3-part Guyver Extravaganza: reviews of the ill-fated (but fun) live action Guyver movies. Click on the titles to read the full reviews.

The Guyver

One would think that The Guyver would have been a good movie, considering all its potential. You had Brian Yuzna in the directorâ??s seat, special effects by Screaming Mad George, David Gale as the lead villain and a story based off one of the best comics and animated series to come out of Japan. All that going for it and the movie STILL failed.

The Guyver 2: Dark Hero

The original live action Guyver film, as fun as it may have been, was a very poor adaptation of the source material. The script was admirable at times, cramming the first 6 episodes into 90 minutes, but the tone and atmosphere was all wrong. The original film was played off as a goofy comedy parody, leaving many Guyver fans rather disappointed. Luckily, Guyver 2: Dark Hero came along shortly afterward with story and direction more befitting of the original manga and anime.
