What They Say
Strange and eerie phenomena from outer-space are causing terror and panic on Earth! Giant pre-historic monsters are awakened and start attacking cities and towns everywhere. The Earth Defense Force tries to fight off these attacks, but is not able to cope with them. ULTRAMAN, the intergalactic, martial arts hero, must again come to the rescue, and try to restore peace and harmony to an embattled world!

The Review!
If you know Ultraman, you know this is no high-class anime (That's AKIRA to me). I watched Ultraman at a friend of mine for the first time and it was fun. So, keeping in mind that this is a TV show for kids, and especially watching it with friends, you will be entertained. I bought my copy on sale for about $9 in NYC, so if you're not one hardcore-trash-fan, try to get in on sale for $10 max! The movie (running time about 84 minutes) seems to be cut together of 4 episodes of the series, you can select each one in the menu, but there is only one intro and extro for all of them (=movie). The one complaint I have is that it always takes too long until Ultraman finally shows up to kick ass.
Picture: Picture quality is good. Nothing spectacular, not bad either. For this type of movie I'm just happy there are no artifacts to be seen on my TV set.

Sound: It's English-dubbed only. No DD of course, but no complaints here.

Strongly recommended for you trash-fans out there! But try get in on sale for $10 max!
