Blood Diamond
3/4 stars

A lot of people hyped this film up for me so I had a lot of expectations prior to seeing it. I am happy to report that it did live up to my expectations. Even though I think it was a bit too long, the story kept me interested due to its moving scenes and the characters' interactions. Leonardo DiCaprio and Djimon Hounsou shine as they portrayed two characters with very different incentives and later on developed an unlikely bond. The film also made me see diamonds in a different way. Prior to purchasing one, I'll definitely think twice whether to do it or not (most likely my decision will be the latter after seeing this movie). This is the kind of cinematic experience that I will remember for a long time, like "Hotel Rwanda," because of the violence and the government's role in people's lives. Even though it's not a masterpiece, I will always regard this film highly.
