better than any other superhero movie, at that time
14 November 1999 | by spawndraSee all my reviews

I think personally that Guyver was a good comic book, then, oh my god, They made the movie. The movie was based on the greatest comic I have ever owned. Ya know, unlike some superhero movies, well, this one was most like the comic, which I haven't seen in movies now. Thanx, spawndra
