The more I see of their work, the more I realise that directors Ed Zwick and Sam Mendes have one thing very sharply in common -- both are filmmakers who make movies that they think are far more important than they actually are.
This movie is an incredible watch!! The story is so sad and thought-provoking.. It really makes you think about the innocent lives that are being lost due to diamonds.\nThis movie doesn't hold back on the truth, and reveals some heart-breaking truths about those suffering in Africa.\nLeonardo did an AMAZING job acting in this movie. Watch this movie. It's worth it!!!
I absolutely adore this movie. I've watched it multiple times and every time I end up in tear. I originally rented it from a redbox or blockbuster express stand because I never saw it in theaters. I didn't immediately go out to buy it just because I didn't want to spend so much money on just one dvd, no matter how much I loved the movie; but I was glad when the price came down on it and I went and picked up and have been watching it ever since
