Variety gave a mixed review, calling the film "slickly shot" though criticising the plot and dialogue as "ordinary". The New York Times was much more critical, stating the English dialogue seemed like "badly translated German" and the plots "breathless incoherence [was] matched only by its wild implausibility."
