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.

I concur.

So what do you think KGB had in the final hand? Pocket Aces, or 10's?

Still trying to figure that out. Maybe that's why I keep watching this movie! Wink

Daym!!! Didn't know you were a gangsta K?! Makes me want to pop in my copy, maybe tomorrow eve?

Just saw Changeling. Loved it, 3 1/2 stars. Not oscar-worthy, but it's paced much like Million Dollar Baby, and I hope Eastwood lives to be 150, so I can keep enjoying his films. IMO, he'll be spoken of in the same breath as Allen, Truffaut or Kurosawa in the history books.

How did you like this? And, curious how it compared for you to Crash??

Indy, I saw the movie on release, and think I enjoyed it more this time around, perhaps due to being 17 years older. Red Face

I did see similarities with Crash, but think the goal of each movie was different.

How about you...
