Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
The Young Victoria has a subtler flow than you might expect, and at times it's calmer than you may like. Director Jean-Marc Vallée's images have a creamy stateliness, but this is no gilded? princess fantasy.

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
Emily Blunt makes Victoria as irresistible a young woman as Dame Judi Dench made her an older one in "Mrs. Brown" (1997).

Variety - Derek Elley
Well-groomed, upscale, three-hankie entertainment for the “Masterpiece Theater” crowd.

The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
Emily Blunt, one of the best and most glamorous actresses to come out of England in recent years, makes an unusual but highly successful choice for the young Victoria.

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
The Young Victoria feels like a wasted opportunity and is among the least impressive in a long line of motion pictures about British royalty.
