Saw this yesterday. Bloody superb piece of cinema. It manages to be a compelling and well crafted story, beautifully shot, whilst also having a message only hints at trying to ram down your throat. Considering the way the average "message movie" goes about things, Blood Diamond was remarkably restrained.

Really engrossing, very well made, at times entertaining, at times very moving.

9/10

It does look good, although that accent is gash. I guess it's like when a yank tries to do cockney, usually sounds awful to you lot but sounds fine to me.

I thought it was really good to. It's more a thriller with a message than an issue film, but all the better for it in my opinion. As TT says it's manages to walk that tricky line between entertaining and moving you.

Obviously it suffers a little from Hollywoodisation in some parts, but all in all it's a cracking film.

remarkably restrained my arse. Inbetween the action we're forced through this message bollox, I almost turned it off in disgust many times. Loved the first hour or so but then it goes through this lull period that was so boring I near fell asleep. Sometimes moving, but mostly annoying. 5/10
