Film: Blood Diamond
Genre: Drama / Adventure
Synopsis: Set against the backdrop of the chaos and civil war that faced Sierra Leone in the 1990s. "Blood Diamond" is the story of a diamond smuggler and a fisherman who have their destinies united in a common quest to recover a rare pink diamond, the kind of stone that can transform lives…or end them. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
My review: What I liked about this movie was that it showed that our actions in the first world have real consequences in the third world, and that our consumerism can cost lives. I don’t normally like Leonardo DiCaprio but he was great in this movie. Watch out though, it’s a bit bloody.
Rating: 4 stars.
