Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Two minutes 48 seconds of cuts by the BBFC have taken the edge off some unnecessary sadism, but the brush-written credits remain the highlight."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
""3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy" finds it is love, not sex, that rules the human heart, a sweet and conventional idea regardless of the technology of the film's projection."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"For me, the tedium and the 3Dium were occasionally alleviated by counting the number of characters named Dong or Hung."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
‑ , This is London
"Torture porn fodder."
‑ Kat Halstead, Little White Lies
"Sex in this film looks so nonecstatic that a better title might have been "3D Sex and Zen: Zero Child Policy.""
‑ Mike Hale, New York Times
"Auds get an eyeful of flesh, served with sadistic, spasmodic laughs."
‑ Russell Edwards, Variety
"The ultimate message is creepily anti-sex, but, in fairness, the preceding two hours would put just about anyone off."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"Anyone hoping to gain insight into an exotic, erotic culture is likely to be disappointed, as is anyone in search of a cheap thrill."
‑ Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail [UK]
"It's hardly In The Realm of the Senses, but the point is, er, rammed home that love is more important than sex."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
"3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy fails to live up to either its promise or title."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"After about an hour of Wei's amusing escapades, however, things take a turn for the decidedly vicious."
‑ Elizabeth Kerr, Hollywood Reporter
"Probably the only place you can see a 20ft male member bursting out of a cinema screen."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"The recent 3D Lovers Guide was sexier and more three-dimensional."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"If three-dimensional boobs are your thing, this Chinese skinfest ticks some boxes. If not, this packs all the sexual thrills of a baguette. Avoid like a case of the crabs."
‑ David Hughes, Empire Magazine
