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.

Enjoyable but not as exciting as it should be.

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.

Kon-Tiki is a widescreen man-against-nature epic, beautifully shot and boasting seamless, stunning visual effects.

"Kon-Tiki" is awesome in the true sense of the word: You sit in awe of the bravery, audacity, stupidity and natural power on display. Ah, to imagine and dream. And to go forth.

How much is fiction and how much is deliberate confusion?

Upbeat and less exciting than you might wish, though it could be a good adventure film for older kids.
May 15, 2013
A thrilling introduction to one of the more remarkable adventures of the post-World War II world.

The characters don't register as much more than genre archetypes, but that doesn't spoil the fun, since the filmmakers re-create the journey in such vivid detail.

Most everyone loves a ripping good sea yarn, so why doesn't Kon-Tiki rip?

Part history lesson, part classic adventure tale and often stunning to watch.

"Kon-Tiki" is stalwart and uplifting and there are passing moments of wonder.

Unfortunately, sharks and whales aren't the stars of the film, so the movie is a pretty humdrum affair when it focuses on humans, even when actors are playing characters based on real people.

Kon-Tiki has the look and feel of a big, bracing adventure. It skirts many of the emotional issues in favor of high adventure with hungry sharks and monster storms.
May 2, 2013
While the wind goes out of its sails a few times along the way, this is a ravishingly photographed, old-fashioned man-against-the-elements adventure epic propelled by human-scaled heroics.
April 26, 2013
It's a terrifically engaging throwback to the uplifting, irony-free, outdoorsy '60s Disney yarns ...
April 25, 2013
The men are handsome, the sea is pretty and if the sharks look as rubbery as last week's chicken, at least they add some drama - and buckets of sloshing blood and guts - to what otherwise proves a dull affair.
April 25, 2013
"Kon-Tiki" is a ripping yarn torn from yesterday's headlines.
April 25, 2013
A rousing and thoroughly enjoyable Old Hollywood-style adventure.
April 25, 2013
The top-notch adventure tale "Kon-Tiki" is an old-fashioned entertainment, complete with a lead who physically recalls Peter O'Toole in "Lawrence of Arabia."
