Movie Blood Diamond (2006)

20110107:
Blood Diamond was a great movie. It had a good amount of action and a good amount of emotion.

Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio)

There were two scenes that were a little strange:
1) When Maddy (Jennifer Connelly) grabbed Danny's (Leonardo DiCaprio) hand.
2) When Solomon (Djimon Hounsou) mistakenly spots a boy as his son Dia and calls out his son's name.*

On a different note, I thought the movie was going to end at the scene before the actual ending.

Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou)

Cast:
: Actor Djimon Hounsou who plays Solomon was Juba in Gladiator (2000) and Midnite in Constantine (2005).
: Stephen Collins from 7th Heaven was in this movie.

*This is probably a reference to the 1 hr 45 min mark. In short, the boy was Dia. In detail, the RUF had brainwashed his son and so his son refused to acknowledge him.

As of 20171215, Netflix determined the movie for me as a 83% match.

Maddy Bowen (Jennifer Connelly)
