Blood Diamond

This was a really good movie. Djimon Hounsou should definetly be at least nominated for this film. Leonardo Dicaprio did excellent as well. Sad movie though.

Anybody else see it and what did you think?

Overall, it was a good movie.  Djimon did a great job and the subject matter was very intense...remember reading articles on Sierre Leone and how people were losing limbs over the strife and war and hunt for diamonds.

Just saw this movie and loved it!  I am a huge Departed fan but I think Lreo might have been even better here than he was there.  I'll repeat, it you asked me 10 years ago if I would ever be a Leonardo Dicaprio fan, I would have laughed.  But He kicks ass.

Djimon Hounsou is as powerful as ever. 

Overall, a great movie!
