IndieWire - Eric Kohn
Where "Bridesmaids" has plenty of solid gags, it's not much to look at; Submarine always has something impressive to watch even when its plot is on autopilot.

The New Yorker - David Denby
In all, this is a movie that is partial to youth as a state of being. The grownups seem finished, as frozen in their lifetime roles as creatures out of myth or the Bible. But Oliver and Jordana have the freedom to go anywhere, do anything, become anything. Submarine is an exhilarating surprise.

Time Out - Unnamed
Submarine may not be epic cinema, but in a modest way, it's close to perfection.
75
Slant Magazine - Jesse Cataldo
It cheats a little, using a mix of amateurish extreme close-ups and striking Welsh industrial vistas to substitute for real technical proficiency, but also applies more formal consideration than most films, namely teen-centered comedies, ever do.

Boxoffice Magazine - Ray Greene
An auspicious, controlled and altogether droll debut film that resembles Wes Anderson's "Rushmore" without being derived from it.
