Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Try as he might, strut as he does toward climactic showdowns with ruthless adversaries, [Chan's] character remains an incongruous muddle. Same goes for the movie."

"It's more social drama than gangster movie, but there is plenty of violence, all of it of a furiously sloppy and savage nature of street thugs."

‑ Brian Miller, Village Voice
"Shinjuku Incident strains for social significance, but it is too timidly produced to risk depicting any recognizable reality."
‑ Jeremy Heilman, MovieMartyr.com
