Ultimately forgettable, but overall it is efficient, entertaining and good-looking escapism.

Exciting action partly compensates for the lack of scripting and thesping panache.

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.

Hindustan Times

The middle section drags, and there is a full hour in this film that could easily be edited out.

Georgia Straight

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.

Digital Spy

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.

A fine, fun, but unexceptional action movie. The cinematography is excellent. Beautiful movie. The action is mostly the sort of rapid-fire cuts so you can't see what's happening sort of action editing Hollywood uses to hide the fact that the actors can't sustain credible action for more than a few seconds at a time. There is one extended take that stands out as a well choreographed bit of action - not especially challenging action for the actors, but definitely gave the people behind the camera a chance to show their skills. The soundtrack includes a number of brief references to Western film music and one song that reworks the melody of Boney M's "Rasputin" to good effect.
