For me it actually the best film of 2006. Film, which, along with"the Departed", and DiCaprio appears to us is not another pretty boy, and already a Mature man, in the true sense of the word, able to make cold, calculating decisions, even if they will bring not to the most good consequences.

And so no other hero need this movie, same a hard as the hero of DiCaprio in the beginning of the story. Film about human greed, about that will not show on the TV about children washed in the blood arms... And then let it's set in Hollywood, and not as in the Chronicles of news. Let the center of the story to be one oppressed people, and not the whole nation. All well, acting, skillful directing, and well-chosen cast make us sincerely worry about the fate of one character, so for all disfigured Africa...

Separately would like to say about the Duo of Leonardo Di Caprio — Djimon Hounsou / Danny Archer — Solomon Vandy. Such a bright, strong and just memorable duet I haven't seen already for a long time. Even though they are on the film antipodes, but still any situation they will complement each other, how can two opposite personalities. From that of the symbiosis of film won several times.

So, all fans of drama, adventure and just "smart" Hollywood view is required.

Can't say that I'm a fan of movies about wars and violence, but this movie is not just another Hollywood action movie-this is war people(want to mention, excellent shot) for the freedom, the war against the circumstances of their life.

The acting is just great, I fully agree with the previous comments:the Duo of Leo DiCaprio and Gimona Khonsu one of the most successful, in my opinion, for the past decade. Two seemingly completely different people United for one purpose-to restore peace, stop wars and violence.

Hero Leo DiCaprio, Danny Archer is a smuggler with a difficult fate, in the beginning of the film reveals itself as a brutal nihilist living in the principle of "you or you",but the events of the film reveal it as a selfless and courageous person. It act the end of the film just blurs in the memory of the audience it cruelty.

"Forgive no because we make each friend?"

I want to believe that Denis Archer was forgiven.

Leo DiCaprio from each film is striking all stronger — it is no longer boy melodramas like "Titanic" and"Romeo and Juliet",he is an incredibly talented actor with a capital letter!

"Blood Diamond" — it's a great movie, showing the viewer to the consequences of the greed of people willing to sacrifice the African people for the enrichment.

The movie makes you think about the fate of the people whose blood has been extracted, these the diamonds which every resident of the metropolis can be seen in the glossy Windows of jewelry stores. Do the people, what price is paid by those who produced them? In contrast price the products for the African people are incommensurable-that is their lives and the life of their families. After you see terrible pictures of children with arms in hands, lose the desire to wear these blood diamonds.

After viewing personally I had mixed feelings: on the one hand, you realize you all you have seen somewhere that the issues such as cruelty, inhumanity, heartlessness, commercialism, greed, and General human wickedness have even as a pall; and other — touches the same...

The thing that blood diamond occupies a niche, in which is for other members of his weight category. Here really in nothing. Yes, there was already "Black hawk down", "Tears of the Sun"... But it's a completely different plot, and the movies were more like documentary filming weekdays American valiant of SWAT. Yes, there were "Hotel "Rwanda", however, the main character of this film was very, even too obvious and predictable in contrast hero DiCaprio, yeah and same in action he is not pulled. Thus, blood diamond — it's kind of unique: he still not been close analogues.

But not is — the main feature of the film, and its heroes. Here they do in my opinion and make this film truly worthwhile. They non-standard (as opposed to, may be, from Solomon), charismatic; their history neiskustvenny, their motives are very different — in short, tried and writers actors. Djimon Hounsou and Jennifer Connelly is very pleased, and DiCaprio was just amazing: very unusual, atypical and (!) at the same time fit for his role. No one never fucked up or one wrong touch in the game. In General, it all perfect. It is seen that went all out, gave it 100.

As for the action, it is extremely proper in painting including deep main characters, with such drama and play must be continuous, furious action. Well here it is, in fact, no. The creators thought of everything correctly: there is no shooting war diluted the plot or drama, and instead of the film is very vulgar to use: it turned into movies bad guys and good, which would be killed first. Jumping on the plot, except to say only that it is unlikely to disappoint, although, and a few (in my opinion) predictable.

Of the minuses I want to mention its a striking (though only sometimes) innocence. Film her not full, however, pop cut the ears things like,"the People of my country do not will be buying diamonds, knowing that here for them gave a hand". It is too, with respect. But happy, however, that Archer here not the American protagonist and shamelessly destroys all the atmosphere simulated feelings and emotions: "You Americans love to talk about their feelings... And what is it?"

So, the film deserves the attention of every more or less Mature cinephile. It realistic as externally (brutality of war), so both internally (heroes). He has an obvious moral, has some ideas — from fat plus. He finally shows, though, and schematically, African life in an undeveloped country torn by war. Add to this the perfect execution of roles, great actors, a bit of action, provides the overall picture, shikarnoe music from James Newton Howard, and you might get one the film, which already have long wanted to see.
