It's pretty sad that New Line couldn't turn such a great science fiction property in to a big budget action franchise...

Earns points for the weirdness; extra credit for the ultra-violent action bits.

Audience Reviews for The Guyver

Hardcore Guyver fans may disagree but I loved this version. Early 90's, low budget, Screaming Mad George directing, Brian Yuzna producing, Mark Hamill, Michael Berryman, Jeffrey Combs....what's not to love? Some things shouldn't be taken so seriously, this is one of those things.

When i was younger i remember loving this film, it was cool, had great effects and was loaded with great action and fun from start to finish. Today? you it still kinda does as cheesy and dumb way that still makes for decent fun if you like monster movie chaos, cheap thrills and bad one liners.

Mark Hamill stars in another interesting sci-fi movie. Nowhere near as good as Star Wars, of course, but it's a sort of sci-fi horror action movie from Asia. I really should re-watch it, I liked it.

    1. Max Reed: Just one thing. I mean, what the hell's a scientist doing in the middle of the night walking down a concrete riverbed in his lab coat? Fishing?
    2. Col. Castle: Who knows? Some people will do anything to land a fish. Even tell a fish story.
    3. Max Reed: Yeah, well it ain't fish I smell, it's a rat!
