The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Unnamed
Inspector Gadget may be a live-action movie, but at its heart it's more cartoonish than most cartoons.

TV Guide Magazine - Maitland McDonagh
What a joyless, fussy contraption of a movie!
38
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
The plot was an arbitrary concoction.
30
Los Angeles Times - Gene Seymour
Gadget instead ends up as another mindless, noisy thrill ride that gorges its audience on bright effects and leaves it queasy from overconsumption.

The New York Times - Lawrence Van Gelder
In the end the elaborate gimmickry of Inspector Gadget cannot conceal its very ordinary storytelling.
