This is filmmaking of great ambition and ability, though it’s not always conducive to solid storytelling.


Slant Magazine by Chuck Bowen

It lacks the fire and eccentricity that we want from our stories of adventurers driven by obsessions that could be seen as egotistical or just plain bonkers.


NPR by Ian Buckwalter

There's no denying its status as a rousing and thoroughly enjoyable Old Hollywood-style adventure.


The Playlist by Jessica Kiang

There is little more to Kon-Tiki than a fun, handsomely-mounted, old-style adventure story. And as impressive a feat as that is to achieve, especially outside of Hollywood, which kind of specialises in this sort of thing, those looking for something with more depth from this category may come away a little disappointed.


Time Out by Joshua Rothkopf

Directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are unusually committed to maritime mechanics, and the excitement grows as steadily as the sailors’ beards.


The New York Times by Manohla Dargis

There’s no denying the real Heyerdahl’s bravery, but if this movie is to be believed, his voyage was largely bereft of tension and interesting conversation.


The A.V. Club by Sam Adams

Kon-Tiki, Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg’s modern dramatization, while well-acted and smartly filmed, rarely musters any actual sense of excitement.


The Hollywood Reporter by Sheri Linden

Delivering visual drama and understated character study, sometimes in disappointingly formulaic fashion, the feature has its incisive moments but falls short as both epic and intimate portrait.
