Superb DebutBy a customer from Edinburgh , 24 Mar 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]Richard Ayoade's warm and witty debut feature stars Craig Roberts as Oliver, an awkward 15-year-old schoolboy who is simultaneously trying to forge a relationship with a spiky girl (Yasmin Paige), and bolster the failing marriage of his parents (Noah Taylor and Sally Hawkins). 'Submarine' is an affectionate and insightful celebration of nerdiness and teen angst; a delightful gem which richly deserves the appreciation of as wide an audience as possible.

Excellent indie movieBy a customer , 15 Jun 2013What a surprise random pick. Beautifully written and very well shot film with some great debut performances and scenery. Another quality British Indie!
Waste of good sceneryBy Snodgrass2 (5 reviews) from Port Talbot , 13 Jun 2013Just like 'Gregory's Girl' NOT!!! Neither amusing, insightful or making good use of that lovely welsh scenery. A coming-of-age story, but frankly my dear.....
Boring and DullBy CaptainObvious89 (23 reviews) , 13 Jun 2013Boring really could not get into this film just really dull and not funny, turned it off halfway through. was really disappointed after hearing rave reviews about it

Endearing, Awkward and Brilliantly BritBy Sonicnaan (7 reviews) , 03 Jun 2013You might expect something far brighter from the comedy legend, Richard Ayoade but Submarine teeters on the edge of dark and this dramatic black comedy gives plenty of guilty laughs through gentle angst. Once you've settled in, this film is a stunner with an amazing cast and director and an endearing brit-flick that'll be a classic for a long time yet. A little unexpected from a comedy legend but also an amazing first feature film for one of our favourite brits.
