The great thing about Ultraman is that the series still uses good old fashioned special effects: people wearing suits, miniature cities, and dudes throwing as much dirt as they possibly can.
Notice how the two suit actors are on a raised platform, so the director can shoot them from a low angle? And how the staff keeps throwing dirt, so the fight looks even more exciting? These are rudimentary production-tricks, but dammit, they work.
