Becky and I went to see “End of the Spear” last night. The Fandango website at End of the Spear describes the movie as follows:
“Mincayani, a tribesman in the Ecuadorean rain forest, lives by a violent code: kill or be killed. His world changes after he and his family kill a group of missionaries. Following the massacre, Mincayani and his family abandon violence and embrace their enemies. When the now-grown son of one of the slain missionaries returns to learn about his father’s death, he becomes part of Mincayani’s family.”
This was a fantastic movie about an indigenous people in Ecuador and an American man and his family’s mission to set them free from the bondage of violence that was killing them. It is based on a true story and it was very well done.
The story follows a young boy who loses his father in the Amazon jungle when his father is speared by the local tribe that he is trying to reach with the Gospel. His father and his missionary friends could have killed the tribe, but they refused to retaliate. He was a very special man who believed that the people who killed him were more important than his own life. At the same time, the film takes you down the path of the man who speared his father and the everyday challenges that he faced living in the Amazon jungle.
It’s an incredible film about the reality of love and compassion covering a multitude of sins and overcoming evil with good. It’s a very moving film that will pull at your heart strings on many levels. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the theater, but don’t let that keep you from seeing this movie. It’s definitely worth the price of admission.
