Well... I was quite irritated when I started watching this (and almost dropped right away).

The first reason why people would actually get interested in this movie must be that beautiful poster. Hands down, they did a great job with that. But don't get your hopes up if you expect something epic.

The story is quite simple. A business man is developing a new area and in the process is killing mermaids whose existence he of course doesn't know of. Therefore the mermaids send their most beautiful girl to kill him. That doesn't go so well because she falls in love with him - and he with her. Of course.

Well, storytelling is as fast as a high-speed train (write off authentic feelings). The scenes are completely exaggerated and (in the beginning) went over the top. After a while though it achieves a balance and holds its ground to a point where the jokes are getting quite funny. There are some hilarious moments that really stuck in my mind. And suddenly the story turns from comical to sober within seconds. The movie takes on a new perspective and shows some really nice action scenes and drama. Adding some beautiful sceneries and sometimes well done CGI and it was easy to go on with the film and finish it.

Like this the movie managed to keep me watching till the end despite all the flaws, and the leads were also kinda charming.

To summon it up:
I went from "Oh sh**, what's that?!" to "Oh well, it's nice and sweet and stupid but enjoyable."

At first I thought this movie is just another typical mermaid movie because I have watched a lot of mermaid movies and the stories were all kinda' same, when the mermaid grew feet and fell in love on prince yada yada yada. But this is completely different! This is way better than all of those mermaid movies that I've watched. This was so hilarious, I mean really hilarious! HAHAHA actually there was a time that I just burst in laughing while watching :D it was also has a romance and some action scenes. I also love the CGI effects. It was pretty cool actually! The effects are so astonishing that you can compare it to the hollywood movies.

Stephen Chow have made a good job on directing and producing this film. Although he was not on the movie but he picked the right character to play the male lead role instead of him. The female lead role was also great and funny, you would love her :) <3

I give it a 10 stars! I'm so picky in giving a 10 stars on a movie because it is so hard to find a movie that deserves to give a 10 stars. But this one really deserves a 10 star ratings. You would love it! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
