Best of the Best.
This movie is an actual masterpiece. I've watched it around 10 times over the years, and it is one of those movies that does not ever decrease in greatness. From the acting, to the plot, to the direction and story line to the bone-chilling truth of what the movie showcases, it is just masterfully done. I love Leo in this movie and Djimon Hounsou's performance as Solomon Vandy is second to NONE and literally gives me the chills and goosebumps and watery eyes every single time. This movie is beyond great. Truly.

I truly believe this is one of Leonardo DiCaprio's best performances. His depiction of a south Africian white man is flawless. The accent is spot on and his emotion is heart wrenching. This is a sober movie with great humane overtones. It will open your eyes to greed and violence in the blood diamond business. Great performances all around and of course, the very best in production value. A great classic in my opinion.

Deeply engrossing, sadly historical, well worth owning and watching many times!
By Matthew Olson
One of the best movies of the decade. Piercing story, brilliantly performed, tied together perfectly with a brilliant score. This film brought a small taste of the Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" back to me through a 21st century lense. You can also watch this movies with different lenses, maybe you like action, redemption, a certainly unconventional love story that perhaps will make you elevate the idea of love despite circumstance. I could go on for pages. Well worth a viewing.
