Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This Victoria is not particularly Victorian, but then she is young; and everyone wants a piece of her, politically speaking. Emily Blunt is lovely and strong-minded as the Young Vic."
‑ Jonathan F. Richards, Film.com
"I wonder: Was the director of The Young Victoria wearing a corset right alongside Emily Blunt? This is one tightly constricted period drama."
‑ Michael Phillips, At the Movies
"Emily Blunt joins the ranks of great screen monarchs."
‑ Don Groves, sbs.com.au
"Ostvarenje koje istinsko zadovoljstvo mo%u017Ee pru%u017Eiti jedino publici koja se sastoji od najzagri%u017Eenijih rojalista"
‑ Dragan Antulov, Draxblog Movie Reviews
"Consistently engaging, with an appealing sense of relevance for today's audiences."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"This may be the perfect shared entertainment for daughters just growing out of their princess phase and mothers with their own challenges balancing love and work."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"It's a muddled but plush experience overall, and if you're a royalist completist or a historical romantic, you'll probably have a decent time. As much as Blunt may have wanted the role, though, I'm not sure it suits her."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Talky and stately, but it has a degree of humanization making it far more enjoyable and relatable than others of its kind."
‑ Perri Nemiroff, CinemaBlend.com
"Quite a bit dry, even for a historical drama."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"A veddy proper film that wouldn't presume to misbehave with an ounce of unnecessary melodrama and abandon. We are amused and entertained but not terribly so."
‑ Richard Knight, Windy City Times
"The way this story is told is just basically by people reading letters in voiceover while you look at beautiful furniture."
‑ A.O. Scott, At the Movies
"An intimate, small-scale story of a young woman's struggle to be independent of her scheming relations and to find equality in a very unequal marriage."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"The Young Victoria is an attractive film. While many period pieces overwhelm with flashy production design in order to get attention, the stellar art direction found here is luscious yet never vulgarly so."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"Blunt's performance, restrained and fiery, holds together the personal and the political threads of this handsomely mounted drama."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"Es el típico producto de calidad que se aprecia más que nada por sus valores de producción (y aquí son realmente excepcionales) y por un elenco, en este caso británico, donde se luce especialmente la estupenda Emily Blunt."
‑ Enrique Buchichio, Uruguay Total
