There was no point to the End of the Spear. I remember when those missionaries were killed, and this movie did a dreadfrul disservice to them. Those who say the critics are biased because this is a "Christian" movie are deluding themselves. There was no point to the End of the Spear.

There is nothing Christian about it. A miserable, boring, flop. Expand

Simply Horrible. The entire movie completly ignores the side of a indigenous peaceful civilization, completely ignores the introduction of polio to indigenous societies through missionaries...etc. Another attempt which proves Simply Horrible.

Watch only if you want to regress as an open minded person, and love colonialism. Expand

if you want to see a good engaging film about missionaries you should skip this one and see 'The Mission.' This one's just a sales tool for christian colonialism and an attempt at justification of oppression of non-christian cultures.

Simply dreadful. A dull and often times ridiculous testiment to how converting people to christianity makes them more civilized somehow. The brutality of the tribe was actually more of a relief to me. Those missionaries are portrayed as the Simply dreadful. A dull and often times ridiculous testiment to how converting people to christianity makes them more civilized somehow. The brutality of the tribe was actually more of a relief to me. Those missionaries are portrayed as the good guys but I was somehow relieved to see the ends of several spears go into some of them. I felt no sympathy for any of the main characters, I had no sense of enthrallment or enjoyment during this bloody and pointless justification of all things that christians do to save your soul. Useless. Expand

Very disappointing compared to the documentary film and the books about these men. A very watered down gospel message. I would encourage getting the better version in Beyond Gates of Splender which has the real message these men died for.
