What starts out as your average "sissy Aikido student finds an alien Suit O' Power" quickly degenerates into a fairly decent bad movie. Full of rubber suited aliens and ultra lame martial arts scenes, perhaps the most surprising thing about this movie is that it seems to have fairly decent production values. Fortunately, the budget didn't have a lot of money for trivial things like the script, so it's pretty fun for bad movie lovers. The acting is generally a bit over the top though tolerable with one very notable exception: the love interest is utterly horrible. The movie drags a bit, but when the rubber suited monsters start battling it out it makes it all worth while. And you get the bonus of Mark Hamill looking very awkward holding a gun. Three Turkeys.

Scene to watch for: The fight in the warehouse.

Best line: "The Guyver... what is that?" or any of the "rap."

Things that make you go "Huh?": Sean's combat stance.

Response From RinkWorks:

I've actually seen this movie in my local video store of choice and have passed over it many times while renting movies to review for this page. Maybe next time I'll give it a try.
