Action received mixed reviews from critics, Firstpost gave 2 out of 5 stars stating "Vishal, Tamannaah starrer is a formulaic entertainer with no proper storyline. If only the film had a script with some logic and was a bit racier, it could have been a time pass entertainer". The Times of India gave 2.5 out of 5 stars stating "A handful of action set pieces, set in exotic locales, strung together by a semblance of plot. If you dig the corniness of the lines and the OTT-ness of the stunts, then you might be able to enjoy the film". Sify gave 2 out of 5 stars stating "Action is a below-average action thriller from Sundar C- Vishal combo".
