The visuals were impressive, I admit. Along with the vehicle designs, especially Batou's car. And I'll give credit where it's due, the guy who played Batou did a great job. I genuinely felt the character had some depth, mostly thanks to his portrayal. Despite not liking the movie, it's definitely not the worst of the animated to live-action adaptations. There's a decent selection of other contenders up for that title...I remember the American Fist of the North Star film...unfortunately. I did really enjoy those Guyver films though, particularly the second one.
