News & Interviews for End of the Spear
Critic Reviews for End of the Spear
[Director] Hanon seems more interested in exploiting his setting's lush green beauty than exploring the psyches of his bland Bible-thumpers.
Although the film invests time among the tribesmen, it never really explores the idea that one man's missionary work is another's ideological aggression. And the movie is tentative, dramatically speaking.
Too bad this sincere but inept movie doesn't do justice to any of the real people whose powerful story it tells.
This is a movie -- albeit one with a great, gripping story -- shot through with meaningful glances, middling performances and melodramatic music cues. Pity.
What does hold back this terrifically detailed and often-entertaining effort are the limitations of the script and uneven acting.
Filmmakers don't need stories with a religious agenda any more than they need ones with an irreligious one. They don't need stories with any agenda, frankly. They just need good stories.
Audience Reviews for End of the Spear
Well done. Good, and decent movie, if you see it for what it is..a movie about people trying to do good.
Touching movie. Needs more dialouge on the reason/passion behind the gospel. Why people sacrificed their lives.
I have a hunch that something got lost in the translation from fact to fiction.
