The film received a generally positive reaction from Australian cinema magazine, Filmink. "Crush delivers most of what it sets out to do. A busy soundtrack enhances the experience (itself a rarity), while muscular production and the eye candy appeal of Egan and Lung (the films biggest asset) push proceedings a notch or two above similar movies. [...] its all handled with enough flair to make the popcorn experience worthwhile." However, the film has a current rating of 4/10 on the Internet Movie Database.
