Others have commented on performance. As for reliability,
as long as Pyrex is working properly, the code it generates
for manipulating Python objects should be completely correct
with respect to reference counting and error handling, so
it ought to be more reliable than writing such stuff by hand.

(If anyone finds a case where Pyrex makes a refcounting mistake,
or any other kind of code generation error, please let me know,
because it's a bug!)
