Eye Opener - Blood Diamond review by CP Customer

I really enjoyed this film - great action, great story and keeps you gripped. Leo DiCarprio's accent was a little weird but still great acting!!

It opened my eyes in terms of Diamond Sumggling and Child soldiors. It was quite shocking to see it was based on true events at the end. I know it's not as bad these days but it's put me off buying diamonds (not that I do a lot anyway, lol!!)

Great piece of film making - Blood Diamond review by CP Customer

Leonardo DiCaprio is brilliant as a selfish, uncaring ex-mercenary turned diamond smuggler in Sierre Leone. He exploits other people to make a quick buck and seems oblivious to the atrocities going on around him during the civil war in the 1990's. By chance he meets a local fisherman who he believes to have hidden a 100 carat diamond just before he escaped in a forced labour camp. The pair reluctantly team up to find the diamond, assisted by a feisty American journalist. The story of blood diamonds, used to finance arms for rebel forces, is revealed. The violence shown by 'soldiers' as they devastate peaceful village communities is hard-hitting and horrific. Fantastic performances, well written and ably directed, it is a brilliant, although harrowing, film. Highly recommended.

Excellent! - Blood Diamond review by CP Customer

Not only was Blood Diamond a great film, it was also very informative.

Fantastic acting by DiCaprio once again.

Shows the darker side to the beautiful sparkling diamond through child fighters & adult slaves.

DiCaprio also must be commended on his South African accent, very believable!
