Kon-Tiki Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.39:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg's Kon-Tiki arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Anchor Bay Home Entertainment.

There are two versions of Kon-Tiki on this Blu-ray release:

1. Original Norwegian language version, which runs at approximately 119 minutes (01.59.02).
2. English language version, which runs at approximately 96 minutes (01.36.01).

Please note that Norwegian language version of Kon-Tiki comes with optional English SDH subtitles (for the portions of the film where English is spoken) and imposed English subtitles for the Norwegian dialog. The subtitles appear inside the image frame.

The English language version of the film comes with optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

Shot with different high-tech cameras -- Arri Alexa (Arri RawLog-C), RED One, and RED Epic -- Kon-Tiki looks spectacular in high-definition. Detail and image depth are simply superb, while the impeccably saturated colors are often breathtaking beautiful. Even the nighttime footage is quite remarkable (see the footage with the glowing visitors). Contrast and clarity are also outstanding. There are no serious compression anomalies to report in this review. Also, there are absolutely no stability issues whatsoever. All in all, this is indeed a beautiful presentation of a truly remarkably beautiful film. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Kon-Tiki Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: Norwegian DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. See the video section of this review for the different types of subtitles that are found on the disc.

The Norwegian track is fantastic - the sound is is rich and very well rounded. The range of nuanced dynamics is also outstanding, which is why even the smallest movement or random noise is immediately felt. It is Johan Söderqvist's wonderful score, however, that gives the film its exotic flavor. Indeed, the music sounds incredibly potent. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and always easy to follow. There are no pops, cracks, audio dropouts, or distortions to report in this review.
