The Hollywood Reporter
Overall, the film is somber, gripping and at times achieves an epic sweep as a dark chapter on the Chinese diaspora.
70
Despite its Hong Kong pedigree (veteran Derek Yee directs), Shinjuku Incident forgoes flashy action scenes in favor of old-fashioned moralism. Warner Bros. could have made it in the 1930s, and that's a compliment.
60
An earnest gang-warfare melodrama that may make some Chan fans long for "Rush Hour 4."

Variety
Though hyped as a rare straight dramatic outing by Chan, the picture still has him displaying his action skills, if less sensationally than usual.
