ReviewSource ReelViews
Review To an extent, Blood Diamond is a victim of its own length. While the film includes a number of disturbing political and sociological insights, the adventure story is tepid and loses momentum as the storyline bogs down. The main character, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, has an effective arc that is believable because it does not force him to act contrary to his nature, but it takes a long time for Blood Diamond to get us to DiCaprio's moment of recognition. Pacing issues aside, this is a well constructed movie - clearly the product of a director who understands how to make a top-notch motion picture. It looks great and sounds great. If only Edward Zwick's mastery of the medium had extended to pruning the screenplay and editing the final result, Blood Diamond might have been a tremendous film rather than one worthy of only a lukewarm recommendation.

Review There are a lot of reasons to be enthralled by Blood Diamond, Edward Zwick's new action-drama-with-a-conscience: the deeply disturbing story he tells, for one, about how American consumer demand for diamonds and European colonialism drive and support horrifying civil strife in impoverished Africa is one that comparatively few people are aware of, and will be appalled to learn...probably the most stunning aspect of the film is Leonardo DiCaprio's performance as Archer...Much of the credit for Archer's force and integrity as a character -- even if as a man, his integrity is questionable -- is down to Dicaprio: this is his arrival as a genuinely grownup actor, even more so than his powerful performance in The Departed, earlier this believe DiCaprio: he doesn't look like an actor having a lark playing a bad guy. He looks and sounds and feels like the real deal.

David Denby, The New Yorker Spectacular, exciting, and stunningly well made.
Jeffrey Lyons, NBC's Reel Talk Sensational performances!
Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader ...Zwick's epic story has numerous virtues apart from suspense and spectacle.
Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune A visually sumptuous, bullet-train-paced thriller with a really provocative theme.
Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor DiCaprio is remarkable...
