The Guyver's extended elbow blades wiggle and bend like rubber as he twists and turns in fight scenes. See more »
At the beginning of time, aliens came to the Earth to create the ultimate organic weapon. They created Mankind. By planting a special gene into man they created the ZOANOIDS - Humans who can change at will into super monster soldiers. Eons later, the Zoanoid leader, called the ZOALORD, has awakened formed the Chronos Corporation to further develop the Zoanoid technology for world domination. Among the alien remains, was found the "Unit" - a bio boosted alien armor. ...

No Zoanoids were injured in the making of this movie. See more »
Differences between the "Director's Cut" (actually the original theatrical version) and the VHS version are as follows:
A text prologue explaining the origins of the guyver and zoanoids, as well as leading up to Dr. Segawa's predicament with the other zoanoids.
Slightly different opening credits. The "Guyver" title is shown in glittering, silver chrome that splis. The VHS version shows a cheaper black/brown title that swipes in and fades out.
Slightly more dialogue when Max tells Misky of her father's death.
The scene where Balcus makes Lisker punch himself has music in the theatrical cut. In the VHS version, no music is present.
Extended dialogue between Max, Misky and Castle at Dr Segawa's death scene. This also includes a little more footage of Sean spying on them.
When Sean encounters the punks in the alley, he yells "Hi-ya!" with a ready aikido stance. The punks laugh at him and then they all yell "Hi-ya" mockingly with the same stance.
An intimate scene between Lisker and Weber in the van as they wait for Striker & Ramsey. He mentions the two of them going shopping in Brazil, and she absolutely loves the idea.
In the warehouse sequence, the shopping bit is brought up again between the zoanoid Lisker and zoanoid Weber. This was cut short in the VHS version.
Zoanoid Striker yelling down to Zoanoid Ramsey is shown in two cuts in the theatrical version, one in the VHS cut.
Major scene transitions in the "director's cut" are accompanied by slash going across the screen with a two-note techno theme. None of these are in the VHS cut. Additionally, 3 violent scenes are not in the so-called director's cut:
When zoanoid Lisker crushes zoanoid Segawa's head, blood is shown gushing onto the ground in the VHS version. The "director's cut" has a very slightly shorter version showing a shot of zoanoid Segawa on his knees with no blood.
When the guyver kills the snake-headed zoanoid, the VHS version shows him getting his arm ripped off and his neck snapped with blood splatter. The "director's cut" edits this out in favor of a cheap insert shot of the other zoanoids looking on.
When the guyver slashes zoanoid Weber, the VHS version shows blood splattering across her face and Misky's. The "director's cut" cuts away to a cheap close-up of zoanoid Striker looking on.
The absolute worst conceived movie I have ever seen. Horrible acting, horrid special effects, and an absolutely atrocious plot. Steer far away from this one, I stumbled across it by accident... A very, very bad accident. It's movies like this that make me wonder who actually came up with the script idea, who actually read and OK'd the project (and financed it), and who actually paid money to view the final product. One thing that must be brought to attention is the complete and utter lack of creativity that was thrown into this project. The characters are as plain as bread. Nothing at all in this movie invoked any imaginative thoughts, other than thoughts involving the destruction of this film. It was like watching the "B" cut of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie (the one with the giant radioactive monsters). That might even be an unfair comparison. I dare not go into any plot details, or explain exactly what this movie is about, because nobody deserves to endure the amount of torture I received by just watching this film. Besides, I'm not sure that I could find the right words to describe what exactly I just saw...
