Last night my wife and I went to the newly released movie End of the Spear. It is basically the story of 5 missionaries that are speared to death in the Jungles of Equador by the Amazon river by members of the Waodani tribe, but that is only the beginning of the story.
These missionaries were attempting to communicate with these brutal people. The five men knew the work was very dangerous but they chose to do it any way.
While the movie itself is not a technically perfect movie it is certainly very good from a technical level. The real power of the movie comes from the story itself. The story is told by the son of one of the men that were speared to death. Who with his mother and several other wifes of the men that were speared decide to go in an live with these very superstitious people.
The story is such a powerful story of courage, grace, love and redemption. To me, this is a movie of a generation. Not only because it is well done, but because it is true.
This is a must see movie!!!!
