End of the Spear
Source: Catholic News Service
Inspiring true story about a group of American missionaries in the Amazon and the native tribe with whom they are trying to make contact, whose lives are changed by tragedy when tribal warriors kill five of the foreigners in 1956, told through the eyes of the son of one of the martyred men (Chad Allen) and a volatile tribesman (Louie Leonardo) who took part in the massacre. Despite its tepid telling, director Jim Hanon's visually lovely and earnest film is a stirring testament to the power of faith and forgiveness to reconcile and heal. Some scenes of violence, including several spearings, limiting its suitability to older adolescents and up. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
