Movie Review: Blood Diamond

My Rating: 4Stars

This evening I saw the movie “Blood Diamond” at UA Cinema, Time Square, Causeway Bay.

This movie was not originally on my Must See Movies list, but after running into a friend and he gave the move rave review, that led me to revisit the possibility of watching this movie in the theater.

At first when I saw the preview and heard Leonardo DiCaprio‘s accent I don’t know whether I can belief him to be a South African. When I watched the movie I was able to forget totally that he was an American.

The movie appears to give a very true portrayal of the racial conflict in Sierra Leone. Of course, I would not know since I was not actually there during the 1990’s.

Hopefully this movie will cause people to be more conscientious of the source of the diamonds they purchase, and the possible atrocity associated with the mining of the diamonds.
