KON-TIKI This Oscar-nominated Norwegian drama (in English) re-creates Thor Heyerdahl’s famous 1947 crossing of the Pacific — 4,300 miles in 101 days — on a balsa-wood raft. It’s rousing and epic and undercut by compromises onscreen and off-. Twelve-year-old kids of all ages will love the shark attack, even if it never happened. With Pål Sverre Hagen. Extras: visual effects featurette, documentary on Heyerdahl’s voyage. (Anchor Bay, $24.98; Blu-ray, $29.99)
