“One of the things I enjoy about Kon-Tiki is how tasteful it is. It captures the heroic actions of Heyerdahl and his crew without going overboard with the histrionics, remaining appropriate and poignant yet musically fulfilling and entertaining.” (Movie Music UK)

“Very well accompanied by Johan Söderqvist’s suggestive score, between epic and romantic.” (Cine, Literatura y Vida)
