The creators of the film "Kon-Tiki" not to be envied. They, for sure, watched "Life of Pi" - just imagine their suffering! While all progressive mankind constantly lisp which simpampulya this tiger, and screeched to throw themselves to the ground when the pussy smilingly bared teeth, those poor Norwegians clutching his head and swore resignedly. How do you want after such a monument to film about Pacific Drift? Let coped even more fundamental than the Scandinavians, but someone from this easier?

The main trouble "Kon-Tiki" that dirty dog Ang Lee a lot of it has already shown. Moreover, a kind of svolota showed much better. And the clusters of stars, blooming in the night sky, and the scope of the unruly elements, and even lyumenistsentnyh skolopendr, who probably has a respectable Latin name. Well, the production capacity of Hollywood predictably exceed European: clear the stump, the picture they will have more beautiful.

In fact, the "Kon-Tiki" easily could have passed for a film not about the anthropological feat, which he is, and for the highly spin-off of "Jackass." After all, the whole batch is reduced to a dramatic uncomplicated: to cross the ocean on a raft - weak? .. Challenge accepted! A pseudo-scientific discoveries - it's just a nice bonus, attached to this mad escapade.
Components of worthwhile movies are just beginning to take shape together like in the ears is the wind whistling adventure. Directors if and Philo, sometimes letting their design slightly to slip, then later show aerobatics, offsetting any flaws. Bright sunny shots all kind shout that on the other side of the planet, too, are sometimes able to take off for the audience, not for the festivals. Raft generously poutykan enjoyable actors, among which the most notable tall tower, depicting Heyerdahl. It seems doubtful that the timbered building is sinking not only because of his stubborn belief in his own right. It is so steep that not even know how to swim when cranked his rousing escapade.
