1. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Not everything in the plot adds up and you wish the film was tighter, but it does have a fair dose of action and comedy backed with good performances. The interesting thing about ‘An Action Hero’ is not so much the story itself, but seeing Ayushmann Khurrana get into the skin of an action hero and flex his muscles (literally) on screen. For that, maybe, you can make a trip to the theatres.

2. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Ayushmann Khurrana-Jaideep Ahlawat deliver a caper which is mostly fun. This Ayushmann Khurrana-Jaideep Ahlawat film comes stuffed with meta jokes, in-house gags, and a running jibe against the shouty TV shows and the hashtag #boycottbollywood.

3. The Hindu -

Rating Score -> n/a
This Ayushmann Khurrana, Jaideep Ahalwat starrer kicks up a storm of satire. Debutant writer-director Anirudh Iyer delivers a a piquant entertainer that makes sharp observations on the fickleness of fame and futility of bloated egos. 

4. Hindustan Times -

Rating Score -> n/a
Everyone has a gun in their hands. Everyone is shooting. Why? Nobody knows? And each time, a wrong man gets killed. That's precisely what An Action Hero is all about. High on action, not just from the hero but even the bad guys, director Anirudh Iyer's film has several logic-defying moments.

5. India Today -

Rating Score -> 2/5
Jaideep Ahlawat is the only good thing about Ayushmann Khurrana's film. Ayushmann Khurrana's An Action Hero is only about mindless punches and meaningless gunshots. However, do watch it for Jaideep Ahlawat, if you may.

6. Rediff -

Rating Score -> 3/5
An Action Man simply cannot decide whether his objective is vendetta or voicing fan-star obligations. Any time an opportunity for some exciting existential conversation between these two men, as two sides of the same coin, presents itself, Iyer opts for a less complicated chase-and-combat routine.

7. India TV -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Overall, the film is a decent blend of satire, comedy, action and hilarious punchlines! The combination of some really good action, and situational comedy makes 'An Action Hero' an engaging watch.

8. News 18 -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
This isn’t a great piece of cinema or anything but it doesn’t pretend to be one either. It sets out to be an absurdly funny, unpretentious crime comedy and it totally lives up to that hype. An Action Hero is wacky, breezy, bizzare, outlandish and yet makes a statement.

9. Komal Nahta -

Rating Score -> n/a
On the whole, An Action Hero is a well-made film but its commercial prospects are bleak because of the casting and some inherent flaws in the script.

10. India TV -

Rating Score -> 3/5
It's Ayushmann Khurrana vs Jaideep Ahlawat in action-packed Tom and Jerry chase. ‘An Action Hero' is a vindictive plot where the antagonist, Bhoora Solanki (Jaideep Ahlawat) is after Maanav’s (Ayushmann Khurrana) life as he blames the superstar for his brother Vicky Solanki’s mysterious death.

11. NDTV -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
An Action Hero bustles with coiled energy every time Jaideep Ahlawat is on the screen as a toughie responding to a rough, ready and rustic notion of justice and self-worth. An inveterate scene-stealer, the actor keeps the 'action hero' Ayushmann Khurrana on his toes. The two principal performers lend the movie some of the power and energy that it requires to keep firing on all cylinders. The rest is provided by the canny screenplay and the directorial panache.
