But Sean isn't the only one who has a grand plan for The Unit. The Kronos corporation and the head of it would love nothing more than to get their hands on Sean. And since they can all transform into alien hybrids they stand a good chance of getting it off of the metal hero.
Best part of story, including ending:
It's was a cheesy action 90's flick based on an old Japanese Manga. The story was serviceable just don't expect any grand unifying themes or something with even the smallest amount of depth.
Best scene in story:
When Sean first transforms into "The Guyver." It's a cool surreal scene that is hard to unsee once you have watched the film.
Opinion about the main character:
He may as well stay in the armor the whole film. He is largely uncharismatic and is not memorable in the least bit. He might as well be a background object.
