Toronto 2012: 'Kon-Tiki' Review

For the next week or so, I'll be in Toronto for the annual film festival, and I'll be filing reviews for Screen International. First up, Kon-Tiki, which tells the amazing true story of Thor Heyerdahl, a Norwegian explorer who, in the 1940s, decided to travel by raft from Peru to Polynesia to prove to the scientific community that Asians did not populate the Pacific Ocean nation. So, the movie is educational, but it's not a gripping entertainment. My Kon-Tiki review is right here.
