Reply to "MOVIES: What are you watching?"

I enjoyed the movie. There are scenes which are not for the faint of heart, as you get an indepth picture of some of the atrocities which have taken place as a result of rebel groups financed by "conflict diamonds". Frankly, you get the impression (much like watching Black Hawk Down or Hotel Rwanda) that some countries in Africa are simply hopeless; and that the lives in these countries are, as Thomas Hobbes said: "nasty, brutish, and short."

I liked Leonardo DiCaprio in this movie (I'm not one of his biggest fans), and I liked Djimon Hounsou as well (although there were certain scenes with him that drove me crazy since the character did not always act rationally).

I would recommend watching.
