Storyline

In a change from previous Ultraman movies, this one takes place in our own universe, in which Ultraman is just a popular kids' TV show. A young boy (and Ultraman addict) named Tsutomu finds a mysterious glowing ball that tells him it can make wishes come true. The one thing Tsutomu wants more than anything else is to meet Gamu, Ultraman's human counterpart, so he can give the boy some pointers on standing up to the school bully. Unfortunately, the bully finds the wishing ball and wishes for a giant monster to appear and start stomping around their suburban Tokyo neighborhood. Gamu and the Science Patrol team must then find a way to open a gateway between the two universes to stop the monster and try to help Tsutomu with his personal problems.

A magical wishing ball brings destruction, and only Ultraman Gaia can stop it.
2 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was released in 1999, the same year as Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris, and Godzilla 2000. This film was directed by Kazuya Konaka who also directed Ultraman Tiga and Ultraman Dyna, he did a great job too. The special effects in this film are awesome, especially for a film aimed at kids. This film also has an interesting story about a boy who receives a magical wishing ball, a bully uses it to call on an evil beast, and eventually an even bigger monster called King of Mons, that's when Gamu intervenes and must get the help of Ultraman Tiga, and Ultraman Dyna when King of Mons spawns two new monsters to help him fight Ultraman. This film ended up being as successful as "The Mummy" in Japan, and even dwarfing the amount of money Godzilla 2000 grossed. By the way, ACTION GALORE!! You can get this film on DVD at Amazon.com, all you have to do is type in Ultraman Gaia.
