Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Turner wants to play up Warshawski's detective instincts while Disney would rather ogle with the intensity of a Mormon, unsure how to successfully launch a franchise like this without alienating male audiences."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"It's okay. It's not great. It kills time."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"As inelegant as its title."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"The V stands for 'Very," the I "Idiotic." I don't know what letter stands for the end of Kathleen Turner's career."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"A highly enjoyable jaunt in action-thrill land"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"The start of Turner's cinematic downward spiral"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
