Critic Reviews for Drift

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (13)

  • The acting is quite good, natural and fresh, and the surfing footage is magnificent. "Drift," though, is a weird mix, and not always successful.

    August 7, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • This poor-surfers-make-good drama from Morgan O'Neill and Ben Nott relies more than it should on toned thighs and taut gluteals. Be grateful; there's nothing to see on dry land that's anywhere near as compelling.

    August 2, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5
  • I'm a sucker for films with great surfing footage, let alone wacky '70s hairstyles. But this overlong, clich-infested Aussie period drama tested my patience.

    August 2, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Has genial moments, but they're lost in a sea of boilerplate incidents and prefab characters. Surfing sequences are easily as striking as what we see in documentaries about the sport.

    August 1, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The surfing scenes are exhilarating, the waves more terrifying than anything Eli Roth or James Wan could come up with.

    May 23, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • As has always been the case, well choreographed surf sequences are a delight to behold on the big screen, but also having always been the case, clich and messy drama is not.

Audience Reviews for Drift

  • Apr 22, 2014
    Two Brothers. One Dream. No Rules. Very Good Film! Drift is the latest surf film paying tribute to and giving us a glimpse into the Australian surf life when popular surf brands were just beginning. The acting is fine all round. Myles Pollard, who also co-produced the film, is solid as the responsible older brother. Xavier Samuel, in one of his best performances, brings charisma and energy to his role. Sam Worthington is excellent. He is perfect as the free-spirited hippie. He seemed to enjoy this role more than some of his recent work and it was wonderful to see him in an Aussie film again. The film does a great job of bringing the 70's back to life. You gotta love JB's colourful bus and the classic kombi vans! The surfing photography is exciting and breathtaking, and the cinematography by Geoffrey Hall is simply beautiful. The soundtrack, a mix of 70's classics and more recent tunes, really adds to the cool laid back vibe. The cast and crew looked like they had fun making this film and it shows. A snapshot into the Aussie surf life, it was a highly enjoyable and upbeat movie experience. In the 70s two brothers battle killer waves, conservative society and ruthless bikers to kick-start the modern surf industry.
