Blood Diamond is one of Leonardo Dicaprio`s best films. I hope he wins best actor for his role in this film for 2006. Djimon Hounsou did a remarkable job as well. Although this isn`t my type of film, I thought it was still pretty good. It was really sad to see what really happens down in those places. It really doesn`t hit you until you see movies like this, especially this one. I would recommend seeing this this film for the acting and story alone. C+
Best movie of the year!
A great movie! Great screenplay, great acting (believable accent!) and beautiful scenery. It is sad to know that people actually live like that though.
Amazing acting by all three main characters, poignant, topical issues within an exciting movie. EXCELLENT!
Although this movie was difficult to watch as the reality of the diamond industry was exploited and there was a lot of nasty scenes...it is one of my new favourites. There is so much action, a great story, every actor did an amazing job...go and see it!
really good acting
leonardo dicaprio blew my mind with his acting ability in this......i wasn`t a fan before this movie
Best movie I`ve seen in recent years.
Brilliant Movie!!! A great first step stopping the dirty diamond industry. (But you still cannot rely just on insisting for clean diamonds, who`s to know where they are REALLY from?)
absolutly great movie. made me want to take the diamonds out of my ears after seeing this movie.
Very nice and informative!! My friends an I will be watching it again!! The African American actor deserves an oscar for this film!!
Good Movie with a political message at the end. Leo`s fake South African accent was cheesy though.
an absoulte amazing movie! Brilliantly depicted. Everyone was amazing. Buy diamonds responsibly
Great acting. Great story. Great message. One of the best movies I`ve seen this year.
Excellent, passionate, I forgot I was watching 2 famous actors. great story, there should be more movies like this one.
amazing!!!! go watch it!!! brilliant!!
The movie was great, I cried during most of it, it will remain with me for a very long time. Leo is such a good actor!!
Entertaining way to spend an afternoon.Some conscious raising in an action movie format.The movie will make you think twice before purchasing any diamonds.(I never got the fascination for them).Leonardo is quite good as is his co-star,who probably gave one of the most under-rated performances in a movie that few people ever saw (Amistead...rent it).
Blood Diamond is an incredibly moving story, delivered with powerful performances, it is disturbing and thought provoking. The scenery is amazing. Solomon Vandy is a humble man whose strength of character is delivered believably by Djimon Hounsou.
One of the best movies to see in the fall. Powerhouse performances from Leonardo DiCaprio and Djimon Hounsou, in which they should deserve an Oscar this year. With some disturbing violence in the movie, it really helps indicate why conflict diamonds are killing lives.
one amazing movie
Amazing movie! Movie was intense and so emotional! It made me think of how many people do not realize how blessed we are living in a country where do not have to think on how to survive the next day! We have so much here in Canada, and yet, some people are drawn to do evil things. Movie is an eye-opener. You will not waste your time.
OMG!!!! Talk about Oscar for Leonardo DiCaprio and Djimon Honsou. Magnificant acting by Leonardo DiCaprio and Djimon Honsou, the acting blew me away and the movie was brilliant!!!
WOW....what english, or better yet - HUMAN - words could be used to describe the intensity and realness of this amazing blockbuster...it`s so real, that immersed in the middle of watching it one feels they are actually there...the anxiety, the pain,distress and complete inhumane treatment and torture African`s have and still do face all because of a rock that the rest of the world values as a show of wealth and power....Catastrophic, disastrous, shattering...simply, TRAGIC...
just an AMAZING movie with an AMAZING producer
WOW! This movie was simply brilliant! GO SEE IT!!!
absolutly brilliant movie :) leonardo was at his best. i loved the movie, it`s really emotionnal. Don`t buy diamonds without knowing where they come from !!!!
Nice story with a moral
Amazing movie, go watch it, and for the people that are dissing leonardo di caprio, i think his accent was pretti convincing and right for the role and has proved his acting skills in the aviator + departed + this. Great movie, abit long but a great movie.
wat a movie...one can compare is with lord of war...tells all the truths about conflicts in this world and its backing by the west
this movie is a great movie to make you think about the world and how we are spoiled. We think we have it so tough because we have to work two jobs to pay bills etc. when ppl in other less-fortunate countries would do anything jsut for the chance to live here.
it was absoultley stunning in all posible ways....WOW!!!....BRAVO!!!
Disappointing movie overall. DiCaprio`s laughable South African accent is the worst since Kevin Coster`s English accent in Robin Hood. Leonardo trying the be a "tough guy" action star with all his menacing facial expressions makes this drama excruciatingly difficult to watch. Hounsou and Connelly, however, are top calibre actors who, unfortunately, have to dumb it down to DiCaprio`s level. Save your money and watch it on DVD if you are still curious.
