5.0 out of 5 stars great film, 27 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blood Diamond [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
Its the first time I've warmed to leonardo. I couldn't understand what all the fuss about him was. He was just a baby faced actor who got lucky by being cast in Titanic. My opinion didn't change through a succession of films until this, I thought he was damn good.
This was a replacement copy of the film because mine went missing.It must be a testament to how good I thought this was because this was the first 'lost' film I've actually replaced and yes, I did enjoy it the second time around.
It's a good story about an awful time and tried hard to bring the message across that the 'blood' diamonds promote the wars and atrocities in Africa. I think it succeded in this.
The acting was fist rate, the locations beautiful, though at times uncomfortable to watch. As the old man said in the burnt out village 'Thank god they didn't find oil.'
We all know that the war would have still been going on, now another arena for the USA/BRIT ALLIANCE if they had.
All in all a thoroughly good film which gets you thinking.5 stars.
