A good, solid tokusatsu film that'll appeal to fans of the genre.
30 June 2008 | by rasta_robotSee all my reviews

Obviously, the first commenter knew absolutely nothing about Ultraman or the history behind the character, or of the culture gap this movie comes with. For those who aren't aware of the character, Ultraman is a classic Japanese superhero who, along with Kamen Rider, is the popular equivalent to our Superman. In Japan, Ultraman is instantly recognizable and apart of almost every child's childhood at one point or another. The budgets of the series is not always grand, so they are able to make do with what they have very well. Having said that, I will say the movie takes some good old fashioned imagination to enjoy. That's part of the culture gap. Japanese films rely on the imagination of the audience, and not just CGI to do the work for us. So, if you watch the movie with all the previous things considered, you should have a really good time.
