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.Written by

This movie was a boxoffice success in Japan.It,s difficult to tell why because it was clearly aimed at a young audience.As japanese monster-movies go the story is simple, with about half of the movie filled with monster fights.Sometimes the (digital) effects look impressive, but other times they look cheap compared to the last Gamera movie that was released at almost the same time.Still a nice time passing if you like ultraman or japanese monster flicks.Released on dvd in japan only by bandai
