Review of last week's film ("Kon-Tiki", 3.5 stars)
Steven says: With faith, science, and sheer will, the Kon-Tiki team floated 5,000 miles to prove it was possible for Peruvians to settle Polynesia. The story set-up is fast and so is the viewer's heart rate after several close calls. The film serves as a great reminder of the historic voyage and should help others investigate the full story for the first time. The film maker tried to pack so much into the film that there are some lose ends, suggesting small story lines could have been deleted without hurting the film.
