Blood Diamond

Set against the backdrop of civil war and chaos in 1990's Sierra Leone, "Blood Diamond" tells the story of Danny Archer, a South African mercenary, and Solomon Vandy, a Mende fisherman.

blaming shoppers for killings in africa bizzare
Verified purchase
i like leonardo in anything , hes a great actor. i had to have the subtitles on for this film though because apart from leonardo & the reporter i didnt understand a word of anything anyone else was saying, fair enough its in africa. blaming the people buying diamonds is absolutely absurd & ridiculous. people fight & wars happen i dont think diamonds are the cause at all & i think i would blame the ones who sell guns & weapons & absolutely totally blame the ones pulling the triggers. i really dont like the thought of these killers getting to live amongst us in the uk, we have children here that have committed murder but we always put them in some sort of prison for a long time, i wouldnt want my kids playing with an ex child soldier who has maimed & killed people, if a kid gets charged with shoplifting sweets here in the uk it will stay on their record forever but a kid who actually rapes tortures & kills people gets a pass & a clean slate just because theyre not white & not from here hell no that is not right at all

Brilliant movie

This film was exceptional, the acting, the story it was great to watch. DiCaprio was great and is most definitely one of the greatest actors of our time however, in this film Djimon Hounsou's (Solomon Vandy) acting skills were phenomenal, definitely one of the best acting performances i have seen along with DiCaprio's performance. This movie was a take on the dark truth of the diamond trade in Sierra Leone, a very underrated and it's a must-see!

A personal favourite

While I have read some critical reviews of this film, personally it's one of my all-time favourites. Sure you could get into some debate about whether or not Leonardo DiCaprio was using the correct accent, but you'd be missing the fundamental point of the film. That is to show the richness of the characters struggling to make sense of all the violence around them and come away with at least some part of their soul still intact. Like real life heroes, the actors in this film portray people who believe that they could have behaved in no other way, oblivious to what separates them from how the rest of us would react in the same harrowing situation. It's both refreshing and moving to watch a film which can exhibit bravery and courage without even a sign of pretentiousness or bravado.

Brilliant film

Absolutely brilliant film. I had been looking for a DiCaprio film on here without having to pay for it and this popped up. I wasn't sure when I read the storyline or when I first heard DiCaprio's South African accent, but the storyline is much deeper (as you'll have read in other reviews) and it was me that needed to come to terms with the accent not him, and it only took me a couple of mins to believe he is South African.

My eyes were completely glued to the screen, I cry as I write this still thinking about how it ended. It's opened my eyes to the unbelievable way people live out there.

Soloman and Danny were both brilliant actors. Leonardo is a complete legend.

Watchable but disturbing
Verified purchase
I really felt I was seeing an honest interpretation of like on Sierra Leone during it's civil war, horrific, disturbing. The blood diamond trade still goes on, I will never buy/wear a diamond again. It is not enough for suppliers to say they can trace the origins of their stones, unless you personally see them being taken out of the ground you have no guarantees. It's a dirty business and consumer power needs to take a stand. Diamonds should be seen with the same disgust as the fur trade. Well worth watching the movie but be prepared to be affected.
