Editorial Reviews

The End of the Spear motion picture retells the story of an Ecuadorian Indian tribe and the men and women who gave their lives to reach them. The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack captures the sounds of selflessness, hope and reconciliation that the story portrays. The soundtrack includes the original movie score combined with passionate songs from today's top Christian artists.

Instead of writing a lengthy review, I will get straight to the point. There are many beautiful pieces on this soundtrack, but two of the MAIN themes were not included. These two pieces were the primary reasons that I bought the soundtrack, and was extremely disappointed when I found out they were not included. The first is the song used in the movie trailer and was also contained in the movie itself. The closest rendition of it can be found at the end of "Jaguar Hunt," but it only resembles the original theme at best. The second was used for the "Beyond the Gates" trailer and was also contained the movie. It was the one where the male vocals sound like they are chanting "Yo-Jim-Bo."

Neither of these pieces were included in the soundtrack, which I believe to be a terrible oversight, considering that most of the tracks on the CD sound very similar. Again, there are some beautiful themes included, but expect to hear much repetition. I simply warn others so they will not be disappointed as well.

So if Owen hit a home-run with this soundtrack, then why I am only giving it 3 stars? The answer is simple, but quite unfortunate. While Owen wrote and conducted several beautiful music for this movie, the lack of instruments and implementation of electronics and synthesizers really detracts from the melodies (however beautiful they are).

The "Family" theme of Steve Saint and his Dad Nate is quite a touching piece which reappears (in many forms) probably more than any other, but shines the most in "Father and son." The jungle theme, which also doubles as Mincayani's theme, is featured prominently in (the soundtrack's best cue) "Jaguar Hunt." Unfortunately, the action pieces really suffer from a lack of a large orchestra that can really flesh the sounds out. Instead (because of a low budget), Ron Owen had to depend on vocals and rapid bass synthesizers to thump out the action. The end result is a choppy, over-powering, but ultimately VERY cheesy sound (aka) "Vengeance."

There are a couple other excellent themes here. The first instrumental track "River Requiem" is gorgeous, with some stunning vocals. "Fleeing" delivers the single-most sweeping theme of all, but it is sadly short. Which is another problem with the production of this album. There are 70 minutes of music here, spread out over 30 tracks (and 5 of those are CCM pop songs). So, unfortunately, whatever good themes that are there are continually being reproduced because the tracks are too short to develop anything more stunning then what we've already been given. To his credit, though, Owen (a young film composer) knows the effect of the human voice, and gives it full reign on the score's longest instrumental cue "Tears In The Sand;" played as all 5 missionaries are being murdered.

This is a beautiful soundtrack. There 30 tracks and five of them are songs by well known Christian Artists. Steven Curtis Chapman sings two songs on the album and Mark Schultz, Barlow Girls and Nicole C. Mullens each sing one song. The songs from the soundtrack are very beautiful although they are not very long. My favorite two songs are River Requiem and Tears In The Sand. The vocals on these two songs are so beautiful. I am not sure who the artist is but it is beautiful. I have heard that this soundtrack is made by a young new composer so I think he did a great job! It is very beautiful. My only frustration with who ever put this Soundtrack together is that they left off the movie theme song called "Along The River". I don't understand why they would not add that song but add five other songs that are not in the movie at all. That makes no sense to me.

Otherwise it is a great album and I am sure you will all really enjoy it.

Not good background music - I find myself completely consumed in some of the haunting melodies. This composer is new to me, and I would never have come across him if I hadn't first seen the film by way of some friends. I understand there is some film score missing on the CD - I do not know. I need to catch the film again and compare. If so, that would be tragic, because I really love everything that HAS been included on this compilation (from the composer). It is emotional, evocative, and at times sweeping and inspiring. Like any good musical score, it has a way of "speaking beyond mere words." I would have gladly paid $20 for this CD.

The CD came exactly as described: in perfect condition except for a little "defect" on the case.

The most impressive part was the delivery though. I couldn't believe how fast I got the CD. I ordered it on Thursday and on Saturday it was waiting for me in my mailbox.
