Ultimately forgettable, but overall it is efficient, entertaining and good-looking escapism.
Exciting action partly compensates for the lack of scripting and thesping panache.
Lacks the knockout blow that would have made it a real killer.
Agent Vinod is slick and visually stylized, but loses steam at times. The movie is a tad long and often creatively compromised -- for style over substance.
When I walk into a film called Agent Vinod, what I want, more than anything else, is an adrenalin rush... The plot plods along, especially in the first half.
[Sriram Raghavan's] fan boy exuberance isn't enough to save an overcooked pot-boiler.
The middle section drags, and there is a full hour in this film that could easily be edited out.
Shot in St Petersburg, Morocco, Riga, Somalia, Karachi, Delhi and London, Khan and Kapoor can console themselves with the fact that, while they won't set the box office on fire, they would have certainly clocked up a lot of free air miles.
By the time the post-interval action finale revs up, there is very little viewer investment in plot or character, resulting in a hollow showiness that overstays its usefulness.
Works more often than not, and when it does, sometimes spectacularly.
Well worth watching.
I m so dissapointed and wished Saif Ali would stay on characters he can play.
