    Reception

    Allmovie gave the film three stars out of five, noting that the plot for Aces Go Places 3 was "stronger than usual for the series" and "that film's juvenile sense of humor might put off viewers in search of more sophisticated fare, but many others are likely to find the movie too colorful and exciting to be denied." John Charles, author Hong Kong Filmography 1977-1997 awarded the film a six out of ten rating finding the scenes involving Sylvia Chang and Karl Maka were "tiresome and consist almost exclusively of situations from old sitcoms". In his book Horror and Science Fiction Film IV, Donald C Willis referred to the film as a "lively, routine action comedy."
