    For all its sophomoric humor and prim prurience, in the end 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.

    Certainly delivers the goods as far as quantity of sex goes. But the quality will leave some cold.

    Audiences get an eyeful of flesh, served with sadistic, spasmodic laughs.

    3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy fails to live up to either its promise or title.

    An unpredictably bizarre and tonally askew Hong Kong freak show.

    For a film so proud of its trail-blazing status ("the first 3D erotic movie"), 3d Sex and Zen is certainly driven by the same good old symptoms.

    Sex in this film looks so nonecstatic that a better title might have been "3D Sex and Zen: Zero Child Policy."

    Excellent faultless picture. Poor machine made to english translation. Tons of sex, brutality, bloodshed, torture, violence, magic, betrayal.Excellent faultless picture. Poor machine made to english translation. Tons of sex, brutality, bloodshed, torture, violence, magic, betrayal. Events happen in old China, it all starts with a newly married young husband unable to sexually satisfy his young wife. Frustrated he asks for sex education in return for his art expertise in detecting fake paints. His life turns into a nightmare when he was trapped in a world not his, and finds himself part of a plot to steel his tyrant sex mentor who as a revenge sexually and savagely tortures him and his wife. In spite of having his male organ cut and his wife entangled in a chastity belt, the couple long live together in sign that love out-stands sex they have been seeking at the beginning of their marriage. In such kind of movie the main focus is pioneering in 3D erotic entertainment, no big care is accorded to well crafted scenario. Acting was acceptable, not much to be expected. Expand
