riveting, best movie in a very long time
It was a touching and important movie, but not without its flaws. I hated that Jennifer Connolly`s role was so small (sorry, I`m a bit of a feminist) and I found it slow-going at times. DiCaprio`s acting was a distraction, largely because I saw The Departed and his facial expressions looked so damned familiar that I found it hard to concentrate -- or care -- about what he was saying. There are more things I`d like to say involving the ending but I can`t because it would ruin it for you. Basically, the ending involving DiCaprio seemed forced and unnecessary. That`s it! No more details. I will never watch this movie again, even if someone paid
I thought it was excellent, the characters, the plot - the story was all so moving! Its like your taken on a ride to another place and it isn`t until the movie is over that you realize wheer you are. Its been a while sinse I`ve seen such an awesome movie! Everyone that enjoy`s action, adventure - a large story with excellent actors should see this movie!
excellent movie ... a must see. worth the $$$.
A great movie. Makes you wonder where most of the diamonds you see at a jewelery store really come from?
There are jewelers’ out their that agree with this moral message; and don`t promote the selling of blood diamonds. All diamonds can be laser traceable to their mines, and they will only buy diamonds that are not affiliated with the blood diamond trade. So don`t feel bad for buying diamonds watch were you buy them from.
This was a heart-breaking movie, it really makes you think about how lucky our society is as a whole and how much we take for granted. Given all the dissention that still occurs in Africa, this movie could be a very useful tool in obtaining assistance for them. The movie was very well done, and worthwhile. I would strongly recommend it.
very good movie and leo is hot!!!!
CAN I GET BACK A REFUND FOR MY WASTED MOVIE ON THIS MOVIE, TOTALLY WASTE OF TIME WATCHING IT, LEONARDO DI CAPRIO IS NOT READY FOR THIS TYPE OF ROLE. DISASTER MOVIE OF THE YEAR.
realistic, bloody, no more diamonds from now on. 5 star movie
I found it very moving. Africa seems to be a forgotten country. All you hear about is Iran and Iraq but Africans suffer just as much. It was very thought provoking. I give it 5 stars.
This movie really does get you thinking about our society.. a must see movie for all!!
Great movie... seriously... just go see it
An excellent movie - very thought provoking
I want to see it again
fantastic action... DiCaprio does it again with a great performance.Djimon Hounsou gives an oscar winning performance ..should be best supporting actor.
great movie. i never expected to love and be touched by this film, the story, actors, setting etc. but i did! excellent!
I definetly didn`t seem like 2.5 hours. Awesome movie!!!
I`ll see this one again, well done great acting great action great movie
well done, but a bit long
My wife and I have been to Liberia,it was a very real and frightening movie and in many ways confirmed what we had been told about the war in Liberia and the use of children hopped up on drugs to do the dispicable deeds the cowardly and murdeous adults had a hard time doing themselves.We have seen first hand how the minds of children have been permanently scarred by what they did and saw!
Great Movie!! A must see!! The acting, plot, and story was well done!
This movie was riveting! Definitely one of the best films I have seen in a very long time, possibly one of the best ever. Brilliant performances by the cast. This movie will stay with you after leaving the theatre and give you a different perspective on diamonds. Oscar worthy for sure!
excellent movie but sorry to whoever posted the comment but Matt Damon isnt in this movie.
If your interested in war movies, over coming almost unbeatable obstacles, and true hero`s.i would watch this movie,i`m planning on buying the video. It gives you so much truth and understanding of africa.And how lucky we are to live were we do.the three actors togather put on an amazing performance.I havent been so moved emotionaly from a movie in a long time. this is by far a 5 star movie go see it!
This movie was amazing. Great performances and Leonardo DiCaprio did an outstanding job as well as others. The movie is not just entertaining, it has messages and makes you think about what is happening in third world countries. I was blown away. Defintely Oscar worthy. 5/5
Best Line of the movie.. an elderly man from a slaughtered village... "can you imagine if Africa had oil? then we would be in real trouble." Wow I have been to Africa... this movie depicts Africa with honesty. It is earthy,lush, dirty, cruel and beautiful. Thank you to the producers and script writers for having the guts not to gloss over Africa... and the guts to show Africa`s beauty in raw form.
A must see! Should stimulate good and critical conversations for us all.
Best picture of 2006---Great acting. Sensitive subject Look at diamonds differently
Blood diamond was really interesting, beautifully filmed. I loved the acting and it was informative on the serious issues that are going on in third world countries. I saw it twice in two days.
This movie took my breath away, with the reality that we as a people can inflict such horror upon ourselves. People will use us and abuse us as long as we continue to put the lust of money and material objects over our personal well being.
Easily one of the best movies of the year - definately the best I`ve seen in 2006.
one of the years best films for sure. Expect Academy Award Nominations. If not, that`s a disgrace.
This movie is definitely Oscar worthy! Leo has definitely grown up and is no longer the Titanic boy he was portrayed to be. He is simply breathtaking in this movie (side by side of "The Departed"). I wasn`t a fan of him until this year. The movie had a great script and everyone was great in it. Made you really think whether funding these high corporate companies in the expense of hurting and ruining peoples lives` is really worth it? A MUST SEE!! FINALLY A MOVIE THAT IS MEANINGFUL!!
AMAZING...i walked into movie thinking it might be not worth it!! but tell you..AMAZING SIMPLY AMAZING...TOUCHES HEART!! wach it with FAMILY, GIRFREIND..FREINDS..MUST WATCH OF THE WINTER!!!!
This movie is a must see. Although some scenes, mutilation of children, were quite disturbing. Sure makes you think why diamonds havde the market value they do and at what price???????
Compelling,compassionate, and violent. A good portrayl of life in Africa. MUST SEE!
great movie...and leo whered the hek did u get that accsent from, its amazin
Excellent movie. Although some scenes are very graphic, this is a story that had to be told.
What Can I Say. At The Golden Globes, Its either gonna be leo dicaprio or will simth thats gonna win best actor
i think this movie was the best i`ve ever seen. it honestly changed my life.
awesome movie! a must see.
GOOD MOVIE, MATT DAMON HAS HIS WORK CUT OUT FOR HIM RE: THE OSCAR! GOOD ACTING (lEO`S ACCENT WASN`T 100% BUT NOT BAD) SCENARY WAS BREATHTAKING, ALOT OF BLOODSHED; BUT A NECESSARY PART OF THE MOVIE, YOU COULD FEEL THE LOVE THAT SOLOMAN HAD FOR HIS WIFE AND FAMILY, ESPECIALLY HIS SON! DIAMONDS WERE MY FAVOURITE, NOW I WILL "RE-THINK"
a new addition to my favourite movies of all time list...
Fantanstic movie, very moving, and emotional
love it....leo gave another surprising role. a must see movie
Leonardo has once again proven earlier criticisms of his acting abilities to be WRONG! That he thoroughly researched the origins of his character is obvious and his character portrayal was evenly acted throughout the movie! Djimon Hounsou played an awesome role, as well and the two characters both gelled and grated against each other in a truly believable way. A MUST SEE movie!!
This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It had a great story line with powerful performances by all the actors.
