Nathaniel Muir of AIPT Comics liked the film's fight scenes,[3] while Kat Hughes of The Hollywood News called the film "[t]he big downfall" and "just a bit dull, bland, and vanilla".[4]

Cynthia Vinney of the Comic Book Resources, compared villain in Enhanced to Heroes while the plot is reminiscent of Universal Soldier, Dark Angel and The One all mixed into one film.[5] She also mentioned that when it comes to visuals, the film is a combo of The Terminator and X-Men.[5]

According to Joshua Rivera of Polygon "Enhanced does very little with an absolutely bonkers twist".[6]
