Guyver: Dark Hero

Revealing mistake: When running towards the "bear attack", Sean activates the Guyver. Close ups of the armor attaching itself to his body show that's not really Sean as his arm and leg are both seen not moving even though he's running to where the attack is occurring.

Revealing mistake: During the final battle, at one point Crane picks Sean up by the neck and kicks him in the side, sending him flying onto a nearby rope bridge. When the camera cuts and you see Sean hitting the bridge, watch closely... he's coming from a completely different angle than the one Crane kicked him in. In the first shot, Sean is kicked diagonally towards the bridge from about a 45 degree angle. In the next shot, it's clear the stuntman was standing at the edge of the bridge and just jumped forwards to land. It goes by quick so you might not notice it the first time, but it's there.

Character mistake: A character mentions carbon-dating one of the fossils found. This is preposterous... you can't carbon-date fossils like the ones being shown. Radiometric dating maybe... But certainly not carbon dating. He's a professional and should know more than better that carbon dating wouldn't work.

Trivia: The first live-action "Guyver" movie had notably tame (often cartoonish) violence and a greater focus on broad comedy in comparison to the darker and gorier Manga and Anime franchise that inspired it, causing some backlash from fans. For the sequel, returning director Steve Wang made an effort to deliver a film tonally closer to the original source materials, and thus added in harsher violence, added significantly more blood to the fight scenes and removed many of the more comedic elements from the first film.

Trivia: Whereas traditionally many action-film series start out with R ratings and then later transition to PG-13 to broaden the appeal of sequels, this is one of the rare cases where a PG-13 original ("The Guyver") spawned a hard-R sequel made to appeal to the fanbase.

Trivia: Does the main character Shawn seem familiar but you can't place him? That's because he's actually played in this film by famed voice-actor and screenwriter David Hayter. He's notable for many voice-only roles, including playing the main character in the first four "Metal Gear Solid" games, and also worked as a screenwriter on some blockbuster films including the first two "X-Men" movies and the popular "Mummy" spin-off "The Scorpion King."
