    J. Doyle Wallis of DVD Talk rated it 3/5 stars and wrote, "Extremely mediocre story is elevated by the action talent on hand, mainly Kim Won-jun, whose jaw dropping skills make the film worth owning for any martial fan." The Encyclopedia of Martial Arts Movies rated it 3.5/4 stars and wrote of the climax, "Although slightly marred by wire special effects, the bulk of the battle is breathtaking martial arts – perhaps some of the best ever filmed, and certainly the best of the year."
