Kon-TikiStarringPål Sverre Valheim HagenAnders Baasmo Christiansen

Directed byJoachim Rønning & Espen Sandberg

Year: 2012

Plot: Six Scandinavian sex gods cross the Pacific on a raft, growing awesome blond beards in the process.

Pros: Did we mention six strapping, Scandinavian lads getting slowly tanned by the sun?

Cons: You’d think that the story would land itself well to at least some drama, but Kon-Tiki has about as much tension as a can of tuna fish. The lead, while cute like baby Knut, can express only two emotions: very happy (big smile) and very unhappy (furrowed brow). His performance combined with the singsongy accent makes Heyerdahl come off as an arrogant marine Swedish Chef.
