Bought DVD mainly cos am a Alyssa Milano fan but to be honest she was completely wasted in this film. Quite a good story but seemed to have a really rushed ending. Probably an ok television movie to watch on a rainy day and worth getting just to have a laugh at the acting from the guy who plays Benedict. If your an Alyssa fan stick with Charmed.

The only good thing in this movie is Jolene Blalock as a femme fetale. The problem with this film, to paraphrase an old quote, is that there is a lot of nice scenery but no engaging story put in front of it.

Truly only Wilbur Smoth knows how to pull off South African Grand Guignol and have you care. Unfortunately Wilbur Smith has nothing to do with this. And it shows.

I'm a Wilbur Smith fan, so I bought this DVD thinking it would be interesting...silly me...are movies EVER comparable to the books? Despite the excellent cast, the acting was third rate and the movie came across as sort of Danielle Steelish, not Wilbur Smith. Given the talent involved in the film, the film makers could have done MUCH better!

Set in Cape Town, South Africa this is a story of Johnny Lance, a diamond hunter. Kicked out of the house by the man that took him in as a new born, he returns 22 years later to run his adoptive fathers diamond empire. Sean Patrick Flanery is great as Johnny, the man eager to prove himself.

This was a 170 minute mini series. Since it was cut down by 40% I don't think it would be possible to get all the plot lines. It makes no sence why they would butcher something like that. 170 min easily fits on a dual layer disk. I guess they would rather shoot themselves in the foot. Could be cropped too if it was originaly full screen.

Amazing how many people thought the acting just was not worthy of the names in the movie - that was my thought as well.
Disjointed plot that just wandered aimlessly, and saying it was contrived would imply that they were forcing things to go in a certain direction, which clearly they were not.

This is about the worst job of acting I've seen in years, and from people we know can do better.

There was no chemistry between any of them, and they certainly didn't draw any emotions (other than boredom) from the audience...

The story was rehashed in another review, so all I'll do is add my own agreement that this was a total waste of time not just for me, but for anyone involved in the movie as well... And every time you thought, "Maybe this is it? Maybe something will happen here that makes sense?" you realize you were just disappointed again. And I'm not even going to bother with the ending... About the only good thing in the whole film was when the credits rolled and I finally could turn it off...

I almost never feel compelled to post a review for a bad movie, but this one was so bad that I had to add my voice to those warning others from wasting time on this.

It has been years since I fell asleep while while watching a movie for the first time, but I found "The Diamond Hunters" a very pleasant nap. I enjoyed my dreams much more than the movie.

(For all you people that bought this DVD for more than a dollar) Nothing Alyssa has stared in has ever been worth your time and money.

Not only Alyssa Milano, but Jolene Blaylock in a supporting role. Interesting plot, interesting twist, easily worth buying.
