An ex-mercenary turned smuggler (Leonardo DiCaprio). A Mende fisherman (Djimon Hounsou). Amid the explosive civil war overtaking 1999 Sierra Leone, these men join for two desperate missions: recovering a rare pink diamond of immense value and rescuing the fisherman's son, conscripted as a child soldier into the brutal rebel forces ripping a swath of torture and bloodshed across the alternately beautiful and ravaged countryside. Directed by Edward Zwick (Glory, The Last Samurai), this urgent, intensely moving adventure shapes gripping human stories and heart-pounding action into a modern epic of profound impact.

generously. It is hard to watch but needed to be seen.
A lot of violence though, not for the squeamish. The violence does seem to be fairly accurate when compared to the real news stories that come out of this part of the world from time to time.
To cut it short and save the plot for others to see, in Blood Diamond, he essentially plays a soldier of fortune who succumbs to the nobler aspects of humanity by helping another person. By the movie’s end, you see that he is tied to Africa not only by situation but by his being. He is who he is and Africa will always be in him. Great acting by him (with accent) and his co-lead, Djimon Hounsou. I even thought that Jennifer Connelly was good as well- at times a bit over the top, but good none the less. Entertaining movie, would recommend.
Unbelievably fantastic, and drives home a point more crucial than ever: that it is the duty of each and every one of us born to fortune to ensure
that all that can be done toward global harmony and equality is done. May we always continue in our finest efforts to learn and embody these truths.
