Movie Review of: Blood Diamond
Story: Charles Leavitt and C. Gaby Mitchell
Screenplay: Charles Leavitt
Leonardo DiCaprio gives a winning performance in this film. He is just brilliant in the part as Danny Archer.
This movie makes you go through the full range of emotions, as you get swept away in this believable storyline. It really makes you think about the greed and wealth of the syndicate that control the diamond mining industry and violence connected with it.
Edward Zwick, the director was superb but you’d expect nothing less in a film directed by him. The action scenes, cinematography, and brutality of civil wars in Africa all brought through the true nature of the situation over there.
I would recommend this movie to an adult audience because of the language and strong violence.
