Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Zwart pulls out enough stops in action sequences involving jet-propelled skateboards, stunt drives and mountain rescues to keep the ball rolling nicely."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Those who aren't part of the 10- to 13-year-old target audience will probably also find it witless and derivative."
‑ Ted Fry, Seattle Times
"Only a kid could love it, but they do."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"A bland and condescending adaptation of an adult action film for a younger audience."
‑ Steven Snyder, Zertinet Movies
"This may be a case of mission unaccomplished, but the future looks brighter for Cody Banks than it does for Austin Powers."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"Agent Cody Banks has a TV movie feel to it. The special effects are kind of hokey, the jokes pretty lame and the stunts looked like they're performed by stunt performers."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"An entertaining film for kids and young teens."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Muniz and Duff seem to be two perfectly normal teenagers thrown in the midst of an elaborate fantasy, and they pull it off beautifully."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"The movie is bouncy and colourful, and cheesy in a nice way, but it outstays its welcome in the last half hour."
‑ Ian Waldron-Mantgani, UK Critic
"An enjoyable kid spy spoof with likeable characters."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"Agent Cody Banks provides the kind of high-quality entertainment one would expect in an adult action adventure that is expected to rake in major bucks."
‑ Daphne Gordon, Toronto Star
"A listless, tween James Bond wannabe."
‑ Karen Heller, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Dreadful, witless and pointless."
‑ Dan Jardine, Apollo Guide
"A formulaic Hollywood 'crowd-pleaser' that can be summed up in three words ('Teenage James Bond!')."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"...Cody Banks is a little older than the Spy Kids and, consequently, more into the girl thing. I'm not sure it improves the picture."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
