Nine years old Tsutomu discovers a strange glowing red stone with the power to make wishes come true, but the meanest bully in school uses it to create a gigantic, evil monster, Now Tsutomu can realize his own heart’s desire to meet his hero, Agent Gamu of the XIG Team, the human alter ego of the mighty Ultraman Gaia! The skyscraper-sized silver and red superhero takes on a growing army of monster with the aid of Ultraman Tiga and Ultraman Dyna, pitting this intrepid trio of good guys against the forces of darkness in the blistering battle over the future of Earth!


This Ultraman movie, better known as “Ultraman Tiga & Ultraman Dyna & Ultraman Gaia: The Great Decisive Attack of Super-Time & Space” when is was released in Japan is the third movie installment of non traditional red & silver Ultraman franchise. The amazing part is that amidst so many Ultraman movies, this movie is still able to approach the standard Ultraman movie with a refreshing new angle.

Using the concept of Gulliver’s Travels, this movie tells the tale of Ultraman Gaia traveling across time and dimension into another world that is very different from his world. In this new world, his duty as a gigantic superhero is a popular children program and he soon realized that he was being summoned by his young number one fan, Tsutomu (or Tommy if you are listening to the English Soundtracks) with the help of a certain dubious red ball. It’s also not hard to figure out that in the wrong hands, this red ball could also summon gigantic monsters.

This film should appeal to the young children as the bulk of this movie focus on Tsutomu and his adventures in meeting his cartoon hero. Just imagine how grand it would be for a child to finally meet his idol and it’s not hard to see it will spark the young audience’s imagination as they relate to Tsutomu’s character.

And as usual, this Ultraman movie (like many children cartoon and programs) is packed with morals education. Beside the usual persisting and enduring through hardship, this movie also attempts to educate that there is no boundaries to greed and one should be careful with what he or she wishes for. Hopefully this will detract older viewers from thinking that Ultraman movies are filled with nothing but violence and mayhem.

Speaking of violence, there will be your usual gigantic fights in the city in this movie. The Japanese original title will indicate the number of Ultramen that will be making an appearance in this movie but like it’s predecessor (Ultraman Dyna), the other two only make a mere cameo appearance in the end and this is a strictly Gaia’s movie. Sadly compare to the other Ultraman’s movies, the only inspiring fight sequence in this movie belongs to the last fight where it features a battle royal among the monsters and super trio which took place in space, earth and underwater.

Ultraman Gaia is a kid movie and from an adult’s point of view, it’s laden with weak character’s motivation and plot holes that almost as big as Ultraman’s pants. It’s unlikely that the adult will be as entertain as a child but then again, it’s a good dvd to reach for while babysitting or a birthday present for 9 years old and below.




This movie comes in 2.0 Dolby Japanese, English, Chinese and Malay audio options with English, Chinese and Bahasa subtitles. Between the English and Chinese audio options, the Chinese audio came across as more professional and natural. But of course, the original Japanese soundtrack is the recommended option to watch this movie in. Some nitpicks for the English subtitle was that there were some misspell words but other than that, it’s basically comprehensible for Non Japanese speaker.
