Synopsis


Blood Diamond
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. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I only picked this up because it was nominated for awards and it was on sale. The movie has a very real feel to it that draws the viewer into the lives of the main characters. Well worth the watch. 5 Academy Award Nominations

    This has to be Leonardo's best performance. His acting was better than in titanic and Wolf on wall street.

    Here's a great movie to watch on those long and boring days. Great story and action. Leonardo DiCaprio is an mercenary on the hunt for a diamond during a civil war in Africa while malicious militants are everywhere.

    Blood Diamond makes you think about the oppressive life many have in the African countries, but it's a good action movie, in any event.
