Variety - Scott Foundas
As a spy pic, it has more pizzazz than the last few Bond adventures, "The Sum of All Fears" or "The Recruit."

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
A high-speed, high-tech kiddie thriller that's kinda cute but sorta relentless.
63
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Unnamed
Of course, none of the film's geopolitical subterfuge will matter a whit to Agent Cody Banks's audience: adolescent boys in need of a surrogate hero. They will respond enthusiastically to this boisterous, well-carpentered kiddy-flick.

L.A. Weekly - Chuck Wilson
Unfortunately, two separate screenwriting teams...send Cody away from kid-resonant environs and off to exotic locales, culminating in an overproduced mountain-lair finale.

Entertainment Weekly - Unnamed
The real mission is product placement, of course: The movie seems to be set against the silvery backdrop of the Sharper Image catalog.
