McClatchy-Tribune News Service - Roger Moore
Drift is utterly conventional in so many ways. But the relatively unknown cast, the rough hewn setting and startling cinematography — footage that rivals many a surf documentary’s best shots — give it a boost.

San Francisco Chronicle - Walter Addiego
The direction, by Ben Nott and Morgan O'Neill, is average, except for the surfing sequences, which are easily as striking as what we see in documentaries about the sport. Another positive is the soundtrack, with amusing high-energy rock tunes of the era.

New York Post - Lou Lumenick
I’m a sucker for films with great surfing footage, let alone wacky ’70s hairstyles. But this overlong, cliché-infested Aussie period drama tested my patience.

The A.V. Club - Ignatiy Vishnevetsky
The mediocre ones, like the new Australian drama Drift, squeeze surfing scenes into conventional narratives, presuming that, because surfing looks exciting, any story related to surfing is inherently interesting.

The Hollywood Reporter - Unnamed
Drift paddles aimlessly between plotlines, only finding its groove out beyond the break.
