“Kon-Tiki”: Film review

In 1947 Thor Heyerdal crossed the Pacific Ocean from Peru to Polynesia on a balsawood raft to prove that it could be done, and therefore was a viable theory for how Polynesia was first populated 1,500 years previously. He wrote a bestselling book about his experiences, and the documentary he shot won an Oscar. This 2012 dramatization has received some criticisms around how events and people are portrayed, but for me the main weakness is that the movie never really seems to suck you into the full scope of such an epic journey.
