Upon realizing he lacks the sexual fortitude to have a healthy sex life with Yuxiang, Yangsheng pays a visit to Mephistophelian Prince of Ning (Tony Ho), the proprietor of the

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.

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

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

"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.

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

After about an hour of Wei's amusing escapades, however, things take a turn for the decidedly vicious.

For me, the tedium and the 3Dium were occasionally alleviated by counting the number of characters named Dong or Hung.

The ultimate message is creepily anti-sex, but, in fairness, the preceding two hours would put just about anyone off.

Anyone hoping to gain insight into an exotic, erotic culture is likely to be disappointed, as is anyone in search of a cheap thrill.

The recent 3D Lovers Guide was sexier and more three-dimensional.

It's hardly In The Realm of the Senses, but the point is, er, rammed home that love is more important than sex.

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.

This softcore grot epic has to be seen to be believed - or maybe not, if your sexual politics are more sophisticated than Sid James'.

More hoot than hot, this elaborately produced, over-the-top Chinese oddity promoted as the first 3D erotic movie is a genre and naked-body mash-up that will arouse a varied menu of responses...

It might be the most offensive commercially released film ever made if there was even the slightest chance of someone taking it seriously.
