It’s Tuesday once again. Time for couch potatoes. I am fond of drama movies and for this week’s theme, Blood Diamond is just a perfect movie for me. I watched this movie way back 2007. I think the movie suits more for older audience because of its violence and gore. Leonardo made me cry in the last scene when he talked with Maddy on the phone. I love him more in this movie. Also, the scene in Africa is really satisfying, the views are magnificent too.

A South African mercenary and a Mende fisherman find their fates forever intertwined as they embark on a quest to obtain a rare and highly coveted pink diamond in director Edward Zwick’s frantic adventure drama. Ripped from his family farm and forced to toil away in the sweltering South African diamond fields, Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou) discovered an extraordinary rough stone of immeasurable value. Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a hired gun who specializes in the sale of so-called “blood diamonds” that are used to finance rebellions and terrorist organizations, and is currently serving time for smuggling. As a bloody civil war rages in Sierra Leone and Archer learns that Vandy has safely hidden the diamond in a place where no one would ever suspect, the pair enlist the aid of disillusioned American journalist Maddy Bowen (Jennifer Connelly) in recovering the treasure that has the power to save Vandy’s family and provide the desperate Archer with a much-needed chance for redemption. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
