Blood Diamond

I've watched this movie on Monday because my lecturer was absent. I watch at TGV KLCC with Amir, Aslam and Reduan. Here's the synopsis of the movie, taken from ImdB.com
Set against the backdrop of civil war and chaos in 1990's Sierra Leone, Blood Diamond is the story of Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio) - a South African mercenary - and Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou) - a Mende fisherman. Both men are African, but their histories as different as any can be, until their fates become joined in a common quest to recover a rare pink diamond that can transform their lives. While in prison for smuggling, Archer learns that Solomon - who was taken from his family and forced to work in the diamond fields - has found and hidden the extraordinary rough stone. With the help of Maddy Bowen (Jennifer Connelly), an American journalist whose idealism is tempered by a deepening connection with Archer, the two men embark on a trek through rebel territory, a journey that could save Solomon's family and give Archer the second chance he thought he would never have.

Since it was based on a true story, I admit that this movie has a great storyline. It also touches the value of family in such a conflict way. However, this movie takes more than 2.5 hours and there's few ups and downs that'll make me a bit boring. The ending is surprising because I thought that strong-will Archer (Leonardo) will get on the plane to sell the diamond. But its good since he's giving Solo a new life. He's now a millionaire!

This movie is 18PL as in the ticket but guess what, before the movie started to roll, the screen displayed the U or Umum classification. Few minutes later, the massacre is totally terrifying. I like this movie. I'm gonna give 4 stars. You should watch this film.
