The diamond fields of Sierra Leone in Africa, 1999. This war torn part of the world is the setting for this intense action/drama/thriller
There is some ugly violence in this movie. Not many people can relate to such a life style, myself included. But this movie grabs your attention and keeps it.
Is this Leo’s most underrated movie? I never hear much about it. Released same year as THE DEPARTED, that’s probably why. I’ve heard people both applaud and criticize his African accent in this. Seems good enough
Djiman Housou is great, such a strong presence in most of his roles. A powerful performance if you will.
Edward Zwick has made some great films! I’m a big fan and didn’t even know it
The acting trio was of DiCaprio, Housou, and Jennifer Connelly lead this movie and script in the right direction. A great effort by all
