Science Ninja Team Gatchaman: The Movie (科学忍者隊ガッチャマン 劇場版?, Kagaku Ninjatai Gatchaman: Gekijōban) is a 1978 Japanese anime superhero science fiction film and a version of the anime series Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.[1][2]

Plot[edit]

Sosai X traveled millions of light years to reach the planet Earth and creates a mutant Berg Katse. Thirty years later he is the leader of the terrorist organisation known as Galactor. They want to conquer the world. Since Galactor controls the mechanical monster "Turtle King," the nations of the world live in fear.

Earth's only hope lies with five teenagers who can move like shadows. They are Gatchaman, five superheroes who arrive in their spaceship "Godphoenix" to stop Galactor's Machiavellian plans of world domination.
