Excellent movie. This brings to light so many of the injustices seen by the people of Africa. The portrayal of child soldiers is sad, but true. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to be enlightened by the goings on and abuse of the African people.

For its flaws, Blood Diamond is a gem, if only for being an unusually smart, engaged popcorn flick. Full Review

Africa's enduring sorrow is ripe for drama, but Blood Diamond is, finally, a fitting metaphor for the gems: Potentially brilliant from a distance, but upon closer inspection, one likely will see the flaws. Full Review

Blood Diamond is a gem in a season with lots of worthy movies. Full Review

Blood Diamond is a by-the-numbers message picture, to be sure...But the director, Edward Zwick, is craftsman enough that the pace never slackens, the chase scenes thrill, and the battle scenes sicken. And if it makes viewers think twice about buying their sweethearts that hard-won hunk of ice for Christmas, so much the better. Full Review

It's a solid performance from Leonardo DiCaprio, who has grown into this sort of "gritty" role and is more believable after having been seen dancing on the dark side in "The Departed." Full Review
