In order to find out the truth behind his new found powers, Sean Barker sets off to the mountains of Utah to visit an archaeological dig where sightings of the monstrous Zoanoids have been reported by the locals. The dig uncovers a derelict alien spacecraft that houses the secrets behind The Guyver and Sean's shape-shifting enemies. THE GUYVER 2 drops the silly slapstick and humor that hampered the first film in place of a darker atmosphere and mood that is much more in line with the original source material. While acting and writing only show minor improvements, the fight choreography in Steve Wang's action sequences have improved dramatically, and the deaths of the creatures are far more gruesome than before. Wang's own design crew has stepped in for Screaming Mad George, proving that they are more than competent as they produce equally stunning costuming and monster effects that rival the best Hollywood has to offer. The new Guyver suit is more lightweight and maneuverable, and allows martial artist Anthony Houk with a greater range of motion and control. Its features have also been exaggerated, with longer blades and increased muscle tone. Finally, the unique set designs for the alien craft that were created on the film's small budget are just as impressive. THE GUYVER 2 is a fast-paced and action-packed super-hero sequel that is a vast improvement over the original film.
