This action-packed sequel to the live-action adaptation of Toshiki Takaya's popular comic-book series stars David Hayter as Sean Barker, the young hero capable of summoning the powers of the Guyver, an alien technology that armors his body with a powerful bio-mechanical exoskeleton. Sean/Guyver's battle against the reptilian creatures known as "Zoanoids" continues when an archaeological dig uncovers the ancient alien vessel which originally carried the Zoanoids to Earth. As in the previous installment, both government agents and the minions of the Chronos Corporation continue their secret dalliances with the Zoanoids' biomechanical technology, with both sides planning to abscond with any alien artifacts recovered from the site. Eventually the dig's security chief, Crane (Bruno Giannetta), is revealed as a Chronos plant and takes the other team members hostage, surrounding them with Zoanoid soldiers. Sean summons up his powers to combat Crane, who then reveals his wild card -- a second Guyver module found aboard the ship, which transforms Crane into a powerful and malevolent super-Guyver. With somewhat higher production values than its predecessor, this entire film still plays like an extended episode of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (which in turn owes a debt to Ultraman), flavored with many familiar ingredients from such Hong Kong action-fantasy epics as A Chinese Ghost Story. ~ Cavett Binion, All Movie Guide
