A South African mercenary and a Mende fisherman find their fates forever intertwined as they embark on a quest to obtain a rare and highly coveted pink diamond in director Edward Zwick's frantic adventure drama. Ripped from his family farm and forced to toil away in the sweltering South African diamond fields, Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou) discovered an extraordinary rough stone of immeasurable value. Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a hired gun who specializes in the sale of so-called "blood diamonds" that are used to finance rebellions and terrorist organizations, and is currently serving time for smuggling. As a bloody civil war rages in Sierra Leone and Archer learns that Vandy has safely hidden the diamond in a place where no one would ever suspect, the pair enlist the aid of disillusioned American journalist Maddy Bowen (Jennifer Connelly) in recovering the treasure that has the power to save Vandy's family and provide the desperate Archer with a much-needed chance for redemption.

Director Edward Zwick, known for "The Last Samurai," has created a politically driven action drama in Blood Diamond. Beautifully shot in the plains and small villages of Africa, this film shoud have been a shue-in for Best Picture. Leonardo DiCaprio is magnificent as soldier/diamond smuggler Danny Archer, whose character suprises us all in the end. Djimon Honsou is full of emotion as Solomon Vandy, a fisherman who struggles to find his family with the unlikely help of Archer. SEE IT !

this piece of junk is a movie within a movie within a movie and non of them make sense. It's just another way of hollywood telling us how to live and taking a real problem and trivializing it for thier gain. the performances were good but other than that I could care less for the fate of the characters. The ending is a joke, I can't believe this people take themselves seriously. What a waste of two plus hours.

Edward Zwick delivers the goods with BLOOD DIAMOND, a tense and very compelling film about the greed and bloodshed that surround the diamond industry of Sierra Leone. Though a bit too long at two and a half hours the story is not only a dramatically viable one for a film, but it also has much to say about human interaction and the sanctity of friendship. Solomon Bo (Djimon Hounsou) is a fisherman who becomes indentured to the evil men who search for diamonds after being separated form his family and in the course of working for the vile men who are in the illegal diamond industry he discovers a huge pink diamond and hides it form the overseers. He is caught, jailed, and while imprisoned he is observed by a Rhodesian white man Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio) who discovers Solomon's secret and arranges for him to be released from prison with money to salvage his life. However, we discover that Danny is in the black market end of the diamond trade and Danny promises Solomon he will get his family back for him if Solomon shares the hidden pink diamond. A journalist Maddy (Jennifer Connelly) finds Danny and recognizes a good resource for a revealing article about the diamond trade. Danny and Maddy form an alliance: the rest of the film consists of the chases to recover the diamond with Danny and Solomon bonding and attempting to avoid every manner of interloper. The performances by DiCaprio, Hounsou, and Connelly are superb but there are also fine performances in the smaller roles filled with such actors as Michael Sheen, Kagiso Kuypers, Benu Mabhena, Jimi Mistry, and Stephen Collins. The cinematography by Eduardo Serra manages to capture the beauty of the country as well as the horror of the battles. But in the end it is Zwick (The Last Samurai, Courage Under Fire, Legends of the Fall, Leaving Normal, Glory, etc) who transforms the screenplay by Charles Leavitt and C. Gaby Mitchell into an intelligent and engrossing film. Recommended. Grady Harp

Blood Diamond is a great movie! The was scenes seem so real and keep you on the edge or your seat. The acting is very good. Leonardo does a wonderful job. My only problem with this film was, although the information at the end was important, I think it would have had a much bigger impact if the movie ended right after the death, instead of the story continuing.

If all movies were like this, going to the movies would be worth the $8.50 ticket price. This film was so well acted and well thought out, not to mention entirely factually accurate. I think it sheds a lot of much-needed light on the crisis that modern greed creates in third world countries. The violence and havoc seen throughout the film is sometimes hard to watch, but it is important that it is shown realistically so people understand what terror and misery exist in the name of a rock they wear on their finger. The score was so beautiful and really worked well. The film and its brilliant actors "ESPECIALLY Djimon Jounsou" kept my rapt attention the entire time. FANTASTIC film. I would give it ten stars if I could.

'Frank' seems to think this was intended to be a documentary instead of entertainment. I don't know why one would think this because it was never portrayed that way in any of the advertising. Fun flick.

Leonardo DiCaprio does it again. Not since his role in What's Eating Gilbert Grape, has he produced a character so engulfed in the story. His dedication to the art of acting is undeniable. I especially like his ability to sport that accent and make it beleivable to the audience. Packed with scenes and relevant issues, Blood Diamond produces a plethera of excellent actors and an equally talented director, Edward Zwick. After stumbling upon a huge pink diamond in Africa, the race is on to who finds it first and the moral and ethical dilemma that subsequently attahces. A must see for all who appreciate devoted acting and serious topics.
