It's a well-made film, but ultimately a forgettable one.

Kon-Tiki lives up to the expectation of this rare pedigree.

In only ever managing to skim the surface, the spirit of their crusade is never really evoked. What's left is ultimately a handsome, and at times heart-stopping voyage that never lives up to its classic forebears.

The film does excellent work captivating the audience with nothing but five men on open waters. It manages to express and capture enough variety to leave the audience wanting for nothing when they leave the theatre.

Amid all the fun, shark fights and unquestionable natural beauty, ultimately this is a film about self-belief and a yearning to get back to basics, so its message still rings true, and chimes with inspiration.

Kon-Tiki sinks itself well before its journey is finished.

A mix between drama and adventure that occasionally works, but that in general is far from expressing in depth the greatness of the real story that adapts. [Full review in Spanish]

Thrilling adaptation of classic book has lots of peril.

While requiring little effort to get immersed in this tale, such is the strength of this compelling story - if there is one thing to take away from proceedings, it's that it is worth catching this in its original, more authentic form.

Directors Joachim Rnning and Espen Sandberg certainly seize the opportunity to deliver a spirited high seas adventure, taking some creative liberties along the way, but remaining true to the spirit of the times and the participants.

Considering we all know the outcome, the levels of tension remain impressive, while an atmosphere of melancholy tempers even the most triumphant moments.

It is beautifully shot and has the same fierce intelligence about it that you find in its producer's other epic "quest" movies.

The wacky, amateurish derring-do of the six-man crew, led by the lanky, floppy haired Pl Sverre Valheim Hagen as the ethnographer Heyerdahl, is astounding.

While this ambitious Norwegian historical adventure sometimes dips into melodrama, it's a riveting, fascinating true story about passion and tenacity.
December 19, 2014
Enjoyable but not as exciting as it should be.

The inspiring story of Thor Heyerdahl's Kon-Tiki expedition makes for an exciting, if slightly old fashioned, maritime adventure movie.

It's intrinsically rousing stuff, although the journey is a little low on drama apart from the odd shark attack and a bit of bickering between Heyerdahl and his virtually indistinguishable crew of blond men with beards.

A big-spirited and inspiring boy's own adventure.
December 18, 2014
Not the most ambitious film on Thomas's resum, but as sturdily assembled, in its old-fashioned way, as the authentic balsa-wood raft on which Heyerdahl and his five intrepid crew-mates made their trek.
