Joey O'Bryan of the Austin Chronicle called it a "fun, period martial arts film, unique in its stylistic approach to both violence and sexual politics". J. Doyle Wallis of DVD Talk rated it 4/5 stars and wrote that what the film lacks in authenticity, it makes up for in "dazzling fight scenes". Beyond Hollywood called it "a silly comedy with kung fu" that "knows what it is". Chris Gould of DVDactive rated it 7/10 stars and wrote that the lack of actual Wing Chun fighting could disappointing to some fans, but the action and comedy make up for it.
