I'm sure this film will get under rated. I wish it had come out when I was in my teens. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Giggly teen romance, slapstick comedy, just plain good humour, even people with super powers. Don't expect Superman or Ultra Man though. Even though I don't understand Cantonese, it has subtitles that do not get in the way. It is a lot like a Disney movie, just plain enjoyable to watch regardless of your age or gender. I was surprised to find that the main star is a canto pop star also. Isabella Leung. I'll have to look into that. The translation does leave a bit to be desired whenever they are talking about romance. I may be wrong, but I am sure given the context of the moment they had meant to say "Moon is in love", but the translation was "She is in heat". Totally different meaning in English and I have no idea what the meaning is in Cantonese
