DVD Review: 3D Sex and Zen – Extreme Ecstasy

3D Sex And Zen: Extreme Ecstasy

Stars: Hiro Hayama, Leni Lan Yan, Saori Hara, Yukiko Suô | Written by Stephen Siu, Mark Wu | Directed by Christopher Sun Lap Key

When reviewing 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy it’s hard to understand what point of view to take it from. If you take it from the fact it’s advertised as the first 3D “erotic” movie then you would expect nothing but a porn movie where you have to wear uncomfortable glasses and expect to be sexually turned on by what you are seeing, but then when you actually do make it through it you realise that it’s false advertising.

The movie is about Wei Yangsheng who on marrying Tie Yuxiang for love fiends that he underperforms in the bedroom department, in his view of course it is not he who is the problem but her and his lusts lead

Running Time: 129mins

Certificate: 18

Synopsis: As a conceited scholar of the Ming Dynasty, Wei Yangsheng believes that since life is short, one should pursue the ultimate sexual pleasure as time allows. Wei Yangsheng encounters Tie Fei the Taoist priest’s daughter, and Tie Yuxiang. With the former’s talent and the latter’s beauty, they fall in love at first sight, and Wei Yangsheng is later married into the Tie’s family. Yuxiang is elegant and courteous under the influence of her father’s faith, though her lack of passion cannot fully satisfy Wei Yangsheng’s sexual needs. His disappointment is no less than his affection for her.

Title: Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy Director: Christopher Sun Starring: Hiro Hayama, Leni Lan, Saori Hara, Yukiko Suho, Vonnie Lui, Tony Ho A hit in its native Hong Kong, and sure to be trimmed heavily or banned outright in mainland China, “Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy” is getting a boutique release across the rest of the world, including major metropolitan areas of the United States.

The end product lives up to...

[Review] 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy

  • The Film Stage
3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy is a film that mostly stays true to its title. It’s in 3D and there’s plenty of sex and extreme ecstasy. As for the zen part, that word probably could have been replaced with torture. In this oddball erotic kung-fu comedy, director Christopher Sun flips the period costume drama on its head, turning it into a sexcapades fantasy of forbidden ancient lore. The result is if you merged a Shaw Brothers movie with a soft-core pornography along with a dash of Stephen Chow’s cartoonish over the top guffaws. The film grossed more money on its first day of release in Hong Kong than Titanic or 3D behemoth Avatar. Billed as the first ever 3-D erotic film, obviously the movie has a unique attraction for a certain type of audience. However for others, the misogynistic antics of both protagonist and antagonist along
