“..impressively detailed and occasionally memorable..”
by Chuck Bowen [Slant Magazine]
“..a visually impeccable, professionally crafted modern vessel that lacks any of the patched-together soul of its subject..”
by Andrew Barker [Variety]
“.."Kon-Tiki" features a protagonist who was determination itself, a filmmaking style that is square as opposed to cutting edge, and a story that is strong enough to involve us despite its earnest underpinnings..”

“..a lurid yet compelling docudrama..”
by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
