  • Kon-Tiki

    In the 1940s, Norwegian researcher and explorer Thor Heyerdahl posited the theory that the islands of Polynesia were not populated by peoples coming from Asia, but rather by pre-Columbian sailors from South America. To prove this was possible, Thor built a raft using methods and materials available to the ancient South Americans. He and a group of men then put to sea to attempt a dangerous water journey of over four thousand miles in a hundred days.

    ClearPlay In Action!

    Besides a couple of language mutes, Kon-Tiki has very little to filter. The main reason for the PG-13 rating is a gross scene where a shark is hauled up on deck and killed in a brutal, bloody manner. The absence of this scene may cause a question or two, but it isn’t crucial to the plot. With ClearPlay, the movie would be appropriate for the entire family, though perhaps a little slow for the younger crowd.

    Should I Climb Aboard the Kon-Tiki?

    Kon-Tiki does an excellent job of telling this true story about one of the world’s great explorers. The ocean cinematography is beautiful, and the dangers the crew encounters along the way keep the movie interesting despite the deliberate pace. As an added bonus, it is educational! While Thor Heyerdahl’s theory is largely rejected by today’s anthropologists, his pioneering spirit still inspires.
