Just watched the film.

Not bad at all. A nice little mystery, and a reminder of the bond between Hayate and Nagi (an element that sometimes gets lost in the manga, which I attribute to ADHD/faulty storytelling/pacing issues on Hata's part). Harem antics (those spices which are often confused for the heart of the franchize) are thankfully kept at a relatively low level. Every character is given an apt role in keeping with their position/importance in the Hayateverse. Not bad for a story written by someone other than the original creator. Overall, a good contribution to the franchize.
I liked it too. It's not something I'm inclined to revisit anytime soon but it was a reasonably entertaining watch and it had a nice "mood" to it.
