It's clear that Blood Diamond takes quite a while to wholeheartedly get going...

Despite fine performances, Blood Diamond is an unfortunate disappointment due to heavy handed direction which dilutes its message.

Diamonds may be forever, but Blood Diamond hopefully will only last through the Oscar season

After centuries of raping Africa for its resources, now we exploit its misery for our amusement.

Blood Diamond is a movie zircon. It doesn't cut glass, but it cuts plot, character, and credibility. It could be Hotel Rwanda, but instead it's Motel Deep-Six.

Yes, Blood Diamond is preachy, but it's a sermon we need to hear.

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.

Never quite overcomes its mindless blockbuster mentality.

This is one powerful film. The shooting style is intense, mixing action with heart-wrenching drama with Leonardo DiCaprio's faux South African accent.

Beneath the shocking brutality in Blood Diamond is the story of father searching for his son which, thanks to Mr. Hounsou's work, is nearly worth the price of admission.

Truly offensive is the film's go-nowhere result, its purported liberal ideologies untapped beyond their potential for speedy, soulless entertainment.

Both excitingly well made and dispiritingly formulaic.

Exciting and compelling, but even more than that, it's a great acting showcase for Leonardo DiCaprio and Djimon Hounsou.

It's a film about exploitation that sometimes feels like it IS exploitation and is only going to leave you frustrated.

Issue-tainment. Puts the issue of conflict diamonds in the public eye. Whether or not that makes it a great drama is a slightly different question.

Zwick does a fine job in combining a broad range of elements and turning them into a compulsive and thought-provoking adventure and is aided by beautiful cinematography.
